retreat: go B+YND

We couldn’t find a wellness retreat that had all of the things we want. Waking up to amazing meals, exercising throughout the day, personal growth & self-reflection is the norm... but we want more. We want some wine with our greens, girl talk, and sunset bonfires. It is vacation, after all.

Our retreats focus on creating memories - the adventurous, fun memories you’d expect from vacation, but also memories & attainable skills that you can bring home to your personal wellness journey or career. You’ll leave with KNOWLEDGE and tools that you can incorporate into your everyday life.

We believe in community, and we know how hard it can be to make meaningful connections as an adult. We work hard to foster a sense of unity throughout our time together, so that the bonds you form during your retreat can continue at home.
