My Dream Yoga Retreat

Hi there!

This week's post is going to be a little different. I have been inspired by a project Eventbrite is running where they influencers to share a post about their Dream Yoga Retreat! Naturally, I jumped at this opportunity for two reasons: 1)I love to dream and create events like this and 2) I hope to one day host a Nutrition and Yoga Retreat, so what better time than now to begin brainstorming?!!

Are you ready to jump into my dream world?  All you will need is an open mind and a heart full of love and wonder (that's where every magical journey begins!). All of these ideas and thoughts are completely my own, so let's go!

Location and Duration:
  • This would be a week-long yoga and nutrition retreat located on a private beach near the mountains of Oahu, Hawaii.
  • Soft sands surround the open air bungalow where meals are shared and lectures are held. Leaf-shaped fans keep the Eco-friendly rooms cool.
  • Morning yoga classes are held on the beach, sometimes even in the shallow water; afternoon yoga classes are held beneath the canopy of palm trees; and evening classes are held either in the bungalow or on the beach.
  • I have so many ideas for retreats, but this retreat would focus on women.  
  • Classes would focus on women's health and body positivity through nutrition and yoga.
  • A spin off of this retreat could be a men's only retreat in which the topics would include body positivity for men as well as men's health.
Yoga Classes:
  • Goddess Flow for beautiful bodies
  • Yin Yoga to unwind and stretch out
  • Cultivating Power for self-love
  • and more!
Nutrition Workshops:
  • Mindful/Intuitive Eating
  • Meditation and Food
  • Choosing the "Right" Foods (a class on contemplating "What is healthy?"
As you can see, this is just one step in creating a retreat, but it is one that I hope to come to life one day.  Would you go to a retreat like this?  Let me know in the comments!!
