Self-care for you and your clients, while deepening knowledge and your practice.

We can’t wait to get away with you to the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii for this all-inclusive, educational, and inspiring retreat in the beautiful, lush, east-side of the island!

This three-night retreat is offered once a year, with 25 spots. This life-changing getaway has been designed for registered massage therapists, physiotherapists, nurses, chiropractors, yoga teachers, acupuncturists and anyone else with a keen interest in movement therapies and anatomy. With days filled with yoga, continuing education lectures and delicious meals, your time with us in Hawaii will inspire, rejuvenate and restore your body, mind and spirit!

The retreat program focuses on anatomy, kinesiology and bio-mechanical components. Our evidence-based approach combines these topics with tissue-specific identification and injury-based pose modifications. We will review muscles, joints and fascia, reinforcing how compensation in one region causes imbalance in other regions. We will identify prime movers, synergists and antagonists though movement therapies. You will learn to incorporate reciprocal inhibition and relaxation techniques to create greater healing potential in your patients or students.

The primary focus is to identify common musculoskeletal imbalances and ways to correct them. We teach you to apply these to functional movements, poses and in practice. By integrating professional handouts and resources that you can use with clients and students, hands-on learning, and lots of laughter, this course will be a wonderful balance between education, fun and relaxation.

As we step out of the mind and into the body, we will spend lots of time on our yoga mats linking knowledge and movement into an uplifting, transformative 3-night getaway.
