When you take time to be still, eat well, move your body and create opportunities for a healthy, happy life, well, that is true bliss. And you shouldn’t wait a lifetime to find this elusive bliss. But unfortunately life sweeps you away from yourself. You constantly feel that there isn’t enough time, and you’re so unbelievably busy. Busy-ness is a painful epidemic sweeping over the world, leading us farther and farther away from ourselves. And during the holidays, it can be overwhelming!

You’re too busy to:

  • make breakfast in the mornings;
  • get your cute tush to yoga;
  • sign up for that photography class you’ve been dying to take;
  • eat dinner with your family; and
  • listen to your partner without looking at your phone.

All kinds of self-care practices go out the window especially during the holiday season. And when you’re not taking care of yourself, you aren’t truly tuning into your body, mind and soul. So it’s time to take a break. A BIG break. Connect to your deep self again. Immerse yourself in adventure, awesome food and community. Make time for yourself; recharge in an atmosphere that supports your well-being.

Once you reclaim time for yourself, you’ll feel amazing immediately:

  • greater vitality and more consistent energy;
  • releasing anxiety and pressure to be everywhere and everything to everyone;
  • calming nerves so you can truly relax in your body;
  • balanced pH level in your cells because you are not participating in inflammatory (stressful) situations as well as fueling your body with tons of healthy food;
  • better, sound, restful sleep at night that will have you feeling rejuvenated;
  • enhanced energy to keep you going through your day because you did something to fill your soul;
  • developing a bright and shiny outlook (sparkle in eyes); and
  • feeling an overall sense of joyful happiness; ready to take on the holidays!

If you desire a chance to immerse yourself in nature, all while reaping the benefits listed above, then join us for FALL WELLNESS ESCAPE.

SUP Wellness Escape

EXPERIENCE A DEEPER KIND OF WELLNESS… BODY, MIND, and SOUL

Join holistic health consultant, author, and founder of Whole Health Designs, Lisa Consiglio Ryan, and Sunrise SUP and Yogavibez founder and yoga and SUP instructor, Kate Grove, for a life changing experience filled with yoga, massage, meditation, and freshly prepared meals all designed to enhance your personal health and well-being. The Fall Wellness Escape will have the perfect mix of connection, grounding food for fall as well as yoga time, offering you the most unique experience.

There are retreats and then there are ESCAPES. There is a big difference. For the weekend, we will escape our everyday life!

Fall Wellness Escape is unique!

1. No hotel food or tour buses here. You’ll be able to walk to the water with juice in hand and do your Sun Salutations overlooking water. Yogavibez yoga studio is right on the water with a gorgeous view. We will have an itinerary for you but we build in time for you to explore, rest and even take a cat nap. Ahhh, feels good, doesn’t it?

2. During most trips you eat a lot, drink a lot, don’t really sleep and exercise because you are scheduled for every hour, every day to hit the attractions. You come home tired. Heavier. Regretting the fourth margarita and “just one more dessert” on your last day. You feel like you need a vacation from your vacation. Not gonna happen with Fall Wellness Escape! You’ll be eating healthy meals, drinking healthy drinks, relaxing, resting, unplugging, as well as moving your body with yoga nidra, restorative (with massage embedded in the practice!) as well as vinyasa yoga etc… You’ll come home with high energy, lightness, ready to take on the holiday season. Plus you’ll learn all kinds of techniques to keep the glow going well into the New Year.

3. You don’t have to do ANYTHING! Really. As soon as you arrive we will be waiting for you with a healthy treat. We’ll have all your meals prepared for you. All activities will be planned for you. No ordering take out. No pressure. No planning on your part. No stress. We are taking care of it all. Escape!

Fall Wellness Escape will offer you life-enhancing rejuvenation that will introduce you to a new way of living, moving and eating, as well as skills that will create positive change in your life going forward.

This escape is a unique blend of yoga, nutritional education, meditation, delicious organic and locally grown food, beautiful waters, creative arts and crafts (malas!), reading, dreaming, interesting and enlightening conversation. And most of all, an opportunity to hang out with like-minded people, take some time to breathe, relax, and have a good time.
