Four years ago I wrote down “be a part of a fitness retreat” as one of my 5 year goals. I had been a personal trainer for 5 years and during my time had fallen in love with helping people change their lives through movement and creating positive habits. Although this was very fulfilling work, I would often get a sense that what my clients also needed was just some time away, to reset, refresh, and simply to have fun. I loved the idea of a fitness retreat, where I could have an entire week to pour into the lives of a small group of people and intentionally build relationships with them, while challenging them to press into emotional and physical barriers that stood in the way from living a truly full life. In the process of dreaming of retreats, I also fell in love with surfing and the freedom and joy it brought to my life. When I’m out on the water all the stress of life just seems to float away with every wave that gently glides in. Over the last 10 years of marriage, Troy and I have always vacationed at or close to a place to surf, and rarely have gone a day without being in the ocean.
With all that being said, I’m beyond excited to announce that on June 11, 2017 I will be teaming up with the “Tofino Surf Camp” team to bring you a 6 day retreat combined with surfing, yoga and fitness. Whether you’re a first time surfer or an expert who just needs a place to escape, this is the perfect retreat for you! Every day you will be waking up to a fresh, delicious breakfast before heading out for a morning of fitness and surfing at Cox Bay and Chestermans Beach with amazing coaches. After a refreshing morning of activity you will have freedom to relax or explore the island of Tofino.. I would love for you to join me for these 6 days of adventure, relaxation and fun!
I have listed all the details of the retreat below. Please feel free to email any questions you have my way.
Cheers to sun and surf!
