We hope you’ll join us for a healthy retreat, a class, or a workshop.
One of the most memorable trips we have ever experienced. Included every aspect a trip should have. Fitness was the highlight. Being on the go and see and trying new things and just experiencing the area was amazing. Combination of relaxation and fun was a great part of our wonderful group.
I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the trip. It exceeded my high expectations. I loved everything about it, but most especially meeting all of my fellow travelers. What an amazing group of women! So happy to have met all of you.
It was a fabulous trip in every way. We were active yet the trip was amazingly relaxing. The retreat site was beautiful. The beaches were amazing and we loved all the guides.
Just spent a week with Elaine and a small group of like minded travelers exploring the Azores. It was wonderful! Elaine is so welcoming and fun, and she had fantastic local contacts that together orchestrate a truly unique experience. From yoga, to hiking, biking, and rappelling, there was no shortage of fun activities to stay active and explore the landscape. And the small group size was perfect for enjoying delicious meals and lots of laughs together. I hope to join one of her adventures again some time!
This was the most amazing trip- truly an experience of a lifetime. Elaine was highly organized about all aspects of planning and execution from beginning to end- coordinating travel to and from airports and hotels, arranging tour guides for every activity, meals etc. I had to do absolutely no planning and had no worries and could just relax knowing everything was taken care of. The walking tours of Buenes Aires were fantastic, very knowledgeable tour guide took us to places off the beaten path. The restaurants Elaine chose provided genuine examples of local food with 6 course meals and wine pairings- incredible! The travel to Patagonia from BA was seamless. The activities each day were very well organized, but be prepared for 2 hours of driving on unpaved roads to get into the Andes, and 2.5 hours on a horse each way up and down the mountain for the hike to the glacier- this is the price to pay to get to see the most amazing views and well worth it; you need to be in decent physical sh…
The Costa Rica trip was exceptional. The fitness aspect was thoughtful and varied and I felt that I could work at my own pace with Elaine guiding me and aware of my physical limitations. The group activities were such fun! We all got to know each other and had a wonderful time on our rainforest hike, zip lining, and SUP. The group all got along great having never met, and even want to have a reunion. Every aspect of the trip was taken care of- from transportation, to gourmet food, excellent accommodations, exercise, excursions, etc. Looking forward to many more trips with retreat2wellness!
This trip met or exceeded all of my expectations and I would love to do another one. I will definitely recommend it to friends and co-workers. Thanks so much!
The trip completely fulfilled my needs. The other travelers on the trip were a delight and kept me entertained and engaged. Quiet time, alone time, needed to be found on an individual basis and I found a couple hours alone every morning before the official day began to just breathe. This alone time coupled with group time created a very restorative trip for me.
I loved the retreat! I definitely came home refreshed and inspired to be more patient, and calm.
Totally outstanding trip in all aspects. The retreat was amazingly organized regarding travel and activities through the whole process. Our destination was a magnificent venue, very well appointed villas that were very comfortable and fit in beautifully with the natural surroundings of the rain forest and view of the ocean from our villa. Food was excellent. Wish I could have stayed longer and actually did not want to leave. Elaine did a fantastic job and would absolutely go on future trips via retreat2wellness.
