Ketanga: We're excited to be partnering with you on our first of a series of RediscoverU retreats this year! Can you give a sneak peek of what's to come?
Rich: Our first retreat will be in Kauai, Hawaii, and we have a team of expert trainers, yoga instructors, motivational speakers and one amazing videographer to capture the entire experience! We will have daily workouts followed by yoga practice and meditation, priming the mind and body for the day. Kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, cliff diving (not too high) and motivational speeches will be held each day.
After Hawaii, we are looking to host quarterly domestic retreats in 2019 (#spoiler alert: Sonoma/Napa, Tahoe, Yosemite, and Southern California), and then in 2020 we are thinking about expanding internationally!
What was your inspiration for RediscoverU and who are these retreats for?
My vision for RU was created by the rediscovery of my own self. In 2014 I started the journey of sobriety. I had implemented a few disciplines into my life, and my life changed over night. I started traveling, seeking out experiences I had always talked about doing but had never actually gone through with. My life had changed for the better so drastically that I wanted to spread all the knowledge and experiences I obtained to as many people as possible. If I could change my life, so can anyone else.
RU is for anybody seeking a great life, regardless of what is holding you back.
What's your favorite type of music to play in your classes? / What are 3 songs currently on your playlist?
In my workout classes I listen to hip hop with with a little house influence. Currently top 3 songs are:
What type of activities do you like to do to keep yourself active and in shape (other than working out!)?
I love all things active! Hiking, snowboarding, surfing, boxing, trail/hill running and home cooking :)
What's a fun fact you can share with us?
I am a college baseball state champion and have lived in every major city along the California coast.
