What are the days like?The days are designed to balance space and structure, giving you the flexibility to make the trip yours while offering activities that help you connect with yourself. Everything is completely optional. You’ll find that each day follows a similar flow: 7:30-8:00 – Light breakfast. 8:30-9:45 – Morning yoga. 10-11 – Brunch at Jade. 11-4:30 – Free time. This is when you can go to the beach, walk the jungle trails, explore the town, or do any other activities like surfing, ziplining, ATVs, etc. 4:30-5:30 – Afternoon yoga. 5:30-6:30 – Watch the sunset on the beach. It’s a nightly ritual in the town with unforgettable, pure sunsets. 7:00-8:00 – Dinner at Jade. Times and activities will vary depending on the day, but this should give you a good feel for what the days are like.
What’s the food like?Two words – delicious and healthy. Meals are created by your wellness chef. Fresh fruit and breakfast snacks are set out each morning at 7am Brunch will be laid out at 10am each day. Dinner is anticipated at 7pm. All food sensitivities can be accommodated with notice. Throughout the day, you’ll have access to healthy snacks at Jade. There are also countless restaurants in the area if you’d like more to eat during the day.
Predominantly plant-based breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks are cooked fresh by me, your wellness chef. This isn’t meant to be a detox retreat, though every past participant has left feeling lighter and, more importantly, connected intuitively with the impact food has on their body. We don’t want anyone to go hungry so you can saunter into the kitchen anytime for a snack and, as an added bonus, you may find yourself in a private li’l cooking class.
