We just wrapped up memorial weekend with an amazing Blossom Retreat !
Audrey Meyer brought her expertise and lead the group of women through a full body workout with focus on core, strength and balance. The goal is to get everyone ready for the ocean and try some Yoga poses on the paddle board.
The best way to perform from the land to the water when merging fashion and function! Wearing the high performance O’Neill 365 workout apparel. We just love it!
SUP boarding provides the formula for fitness with the basic 3F’s…Fitness, Fresh Air, and Fun!
The peacefulness of floating on the water combines nicely with the meditative nature of yoga.
There is something magical about savasana on the water …
Afterwards, we were able to enjoy a well-deserved luxurious treat. Bellow, one of Blossom’s favorite place: the Chocolate bar in Cabarete. The name just said it all!
Alita, the owner of Raiz Herbal Remedies, prepared a detox workshop where she taught us how food and plants can help to clean and balance our organism but also prevent from illnesses and dysfunctions. “Healing through Earth” this is her motus. We loved it !
Vela Cabarete, the windsurf/ SUP Resort was great for hosting this amazing event. We also had a delicious breakfast over there. Voyvoy (their restaurant) offers some of the most amazing healthy omelette or fruity pancakes. you gotta try them !
After an amazing morning with glassy and peaceful ocean, perfect for paddle boarding, the wind slowly pickup in the early afternoon. It was time for some kiteboarding action!
Kiteboarding is the most exciting and thrilling water sport that will get your heart pound! A synergy of wind and water forces. Bellow, Stephanie learning to fly a kite under the professional eye of Jennifer, certified Kite instructor at the Dare2Fly Cabarete Kite School.
Equipped with the Cabrinha kites and boards – top quality products -, Dare2fly is the perfect place to learn in a safe and fun way. “We make it easy enough for almost anyone to learn. The perfect introduction for women! ”
By the end of the retreat, everyone was doing so well on the paddle board, that Audrey decided to bring them to waves. Getting to see the girls catching their first wave on a SUP board was probably the most rewarding experience at the Blossom Retreat in cabarete. The waves were just perfect for this. So happy!!!
We were super lucky and got to see a circus show that just came to town. It was really nice and entertaining.
