I’m Stacy, a born-and-raised Manhattanite. I have always had a love for seeing the world and keeping active while doing it, but I never imagined I would end up making a career out of it!
The dream of Ketanga started when I was trying to book a vacation a few years ago. I wanted to incorporate fitness (particularly boxing and high-intensity interval training) into my trip but was unable to find anything that seemed like a fit.
Fast forward to 2014 when I quit my 'Corporate America' job to travel the world for 100 days by myself. (Scary? yes! Best decision ever? yes!) I was able to travel the way I wanted and see the sights while being active through bike tours, horseback riding, jogging through neighborhoods, dropping into local gym classes, and even flying a 2-person glider plane (ok, maybe that's not technically active but my heart rate was higher than in ANY boot camp class I've taken)!
When I returned home, it clicked. There was something special about crafting a vacation that combined the perfect amount of fitness, adventure, and relaxation into one trip. It was then only a matter of time before Ketanga Fitness Retreats was born!
Ketanga's mission is to make wellness travel accessible, varied, and fun. We curate small group fitness adventures that feature the best-of-the-best vetted instructors, unique activities, and a relaxed yet motivating atmosphere.
While we love yoga (and include it on many of our retreats), Ketanga was born out of a need to diversify the retreat space and give a little love to the other modalities like boot camp, boxing, Pilates, and HIIT.
We embody what it means to Travel Well:
So what do we actually do?
Ketanga organizes and curates custom fitness retreats around the world. We work with trainers, gyms and brands who want to lead a retreat, but don't know where to start, and we help them bring their vision to life so that wellness enthusiasts can sign up for the fun!
Ketanga also produces local fitness events and wellness workshops in NYC, builds corporate wellness programs and organizes private group retreats.
