Gifting just got a little more epic! We know that experiences can be more meaningful than physical presents, with memories that last forever. So add traveling to the mix for a gift of a lifetime.
Whether shopping for a friend, family member, or yourself (let's be honest here), consider a fitness retreat, where there's a lot more than meets the eye!
See below for our picks for yogis, winos, adventurers, and more!
WINTER ESCAPE YOGA RETREAT Costa Rica • January 26-30
There are yoga retreats, and then there's Ketanga's version! For five days you will work with Rebecca Weible of YoYoga who has a casual, fun, and inclusive approach to yoga, and you'll go waterfall rappelling, learn how to surf, and eat delicious local meals. This retreat will take fitness, adventure, and relaxation to new heights. Only 3 spots left!
For the go-getter who is used to structure but looking to break free and relax, this retreat with Chelsea Aguiar is the perfect combination! We'll work towards specific wellness and fitness goals through mental and physical strength training, but we'll complement that with plenty of free time for surfing the waves, zip lining through the sky, and drinking cocktails out of pineapples.
When it comes to being active and working out, you don't discriminate. In fact, the more variety the better! We get it, and this retreat led by Brittany Ignas is the definition of diversity. Workouts will vary from boot camp to barre, yoga to Pilates for a sampling of ways to strengthen and tone your whole body. To balance the 1-2 daily workouts, we'll spend time snorkeling, biking, and vegging on the beach!
Love obstacle course races? Or maybe you're intimidated to try one? Either way, this 'back to basics' getaway will show you how to get through obstacles with speed, agility, safety, and a smile on your face! Led by some of the most notable names in the OCR world, this trip is designed to challenge and empower all levels. You'll train, learn, play, and chill on this first-of-its-kind retreat.
FITNESS & WELLNESS DESERT ESCAPE Arizona • April 6-10
We work hard, but finding balance is more than 'playing' equally hard. On this retreat we will learn to work smarter - not harder - on our health and fitness, but other areas of our lives can certainly benefit as well. Nedra Lopez of The P.E. Club will guide daily workouts and recovery sessions, complemented by hiking and a tour of the vast and beautiful desert. Join us as we re-calibrate for a healthy spring.
PILATES & PINOT FITNESS RETREAT Sonoma • April 20-24
Who said fitness is all work, no wine? Certainly not us! On this wine country retreat, Jenna Muller will lead Pilates and barre classes on beautiful vineyard grounds, enjoy private tastings, and venture out on biking and hiking trips. For a low-impact, highly-effective workout with a guaranteed buzz, this is the retreat for you.
YOGA, PILATES, & NATURAL WELLNESS Crete, Greece • May 27 - June 2
From extremely fresh meals to an aromatherapy workshop; horseback riding along the beach to nature walks through a gorge, this retreat takes a holistic approach to health and wellness. Each day will have a different special activity in addition to the Pilates and yoga practice(s) led by Evgenia Ilienko, and you will be left with free time to relax, meditate, and dine with your new friends!
HIIT, MOBILITY, & ROCK CLIMBING Colorado • June 1-4
What's more exhilarating than rock climbing (and we don't mean inside a gym with bright colored knobs to hold onto!)? On this Colorado getaway, we'll take an all-levels climbing class in the Rockies, in addition to hiking, yoga, and mindful mobility work with Julia Falamas.
Find peace in solitude of the Upstate, NY mountains, savor the serenity of Lake George, and bond with new friends around a nightly bonfire. This special retreat combines yoga, Pilates, and meditation, led by Sheryl Oleksak and Yvette Lenhart, with healthy chef-prepared meals for a total rejuvenation of the mind, body, and soul.
