5-Day “Just Add Water” Yoga Retreat in Rincon
Yoga, SUP and Surf in Puerto Rico
Location: Rincon, Puerto Rico With: Jessica Bellofatto
Join us for an extended weekend getaway to the surf capital of the Caribbean—Rincon, Puerto Rico. Practice yoga on the pool deck overlooking the ocean, stand up paddleboard in the clear warm water of the Caribbean sea, pop up on your first wave with the amazing instructors from Rd2Happiness surf school, and enjoy the best food you have ever tasted lovingly and consciously prepared by Adam Kelinson, author of The Athlete’s Plate: Real Food for High Performance, creator of Organic Performance and owner of Around the Fire Catering (and learn how to make that food yourself!).
Our Venue for This Retreat
We will stay at the beautiful Villas Tres Palmas, a 4-acre oceanfront compound complete with two main villas, 4 separate cottages, and three pools! Ceiling fans and air conditioners (rarely needed) will ensure your sleeping comfort in this tropical paradise.
Your days will be filled with twice daily yoga, stand up paddleboarding for all levels, cooking classes and food talks with Adam, optional surf lessons, optional massage, and three meals daily (one dinner out not included). In your down time, lounge at one of the pools, grab a smoothie or snack at Carta Buena, snorkel at Steps beach, horseback ride, parasail, or relax!
Organic, non-GMO, and ALL locally sourced food will delight your palate, energize your body, and perhaps invite you to start thinking about and re-creating your relationship with food. Where it comes from, why it is so important to not just you individually but to the world and the planet. If you so choose, you can accompany Adam on one trip to the farmers market and the farmstands to watch and learn about the process from start to finish, how to select food, what questions to ask before purchasing, and more. Back at our villa, two optional cooking classes are included in your retreat!
