Our society has no shortage of people and companies guiding us around distant lands. Sadly, fewer organizations exist to help us in a far more important task: discovering and navigating a road less traveled - one of our own unconscious mind. We want to do both.
The way we travel has changed. For me personally, done are the days of over-eating, over-drinking and being stuck at an all-inclusive resort. You know the saying "I need a vacation from my vacation"? I would always come back feeling sluggish, tired, and not satisfied with how I spent my time.
We decided to design experiences that are more meaningful and carefully curated to give the participants what they need most: time to reflect, relax, adventure, meet new people and create meaningful connections, learn about the local culture, energize through yoga and connect to their higher selves. We want individuals to come back more resilient, more clear and ready to take on their day-to-day lives with a new mindset.
Research has shown us that when people let go and get into a state of play, their conscious mind quiets down, allowing new insights to surface. Retreats provide an ideal environment that supports relaxation, connection, inspiration and change. For this reason, each retreat includes self-discovery workshops, guided tours, immersion into local culture, meditation, yoga, spiritual teachings and more.
Each experience is carefully curated. We design an environment where we can invite our higher self to come forward, along with all of the aspects of ourselves that we may have neglected.
A dream come true! Made so many great memories and met amazing travel buddies who quickly became friends for life! Take the plunge... you won't regret it! It was the perfect self care vacay I was craving and needing!
For me this was a personal exploration into mediation and a deeper understanding of yoga, as well as experiencing Bali. The #AwakewinBali retreat delivered more than I expected. I personally had an awakening and I truly want to thank Ivana and Spyro from the bottom of my heart.
The Lake Escape yoga retreat was the highlight of my year. It encouraged myself and others to take in the moment, acknowledge our subconscious thoughts and find a sense of calm in a world full of stress and anxiety. We were able to participate in yoga classes, followed by guided meditations, which challenged us to release the stress from the outside world both physically and mentally. I can honestly say I have never felt so relaxed!

CORPORATE RETREATS: EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE & REDEFINING SUCCESS
Salaries are no longer the sole metric of career success. We are redefining success in ways that enhance our lives in and out of the office: opportunities to learn, investment in health and well-being, and work-life balance. Employee experience is an important aspect of talent retention and a contributor to the overall success of any business.
Yet many employers are not taking it seriously. Corporate culture no longer serves the priorities of today’s workforce. This is amplified by the rise in freelance and contract employment and flexible working arrangements. What we do and why we work have become more fluid; employees have the desire to be understood and treated as fully-rounded individuals.
Evidence proves that corporate investment in health and well-being can lead to higher rates of productivity, efficiency, quality work, and profitability, thanks to employees being more engaged, present, and enthusiastic about their work.
Through a corporate retreat, your teams are given the chance to participate in an experience that is fun, engaging, and — most importantly — values holistic well-being. Let’s work together to bring your team on a journey that will transform the way they think, work, connect to each other and your mission. We design local or international experiences that involve your employees in the co-creation of solutions, in the following areas:
Wellness, yoga, nutrition, fitness
Emotional intelligence workshops to help individuals navigate ambiguity, anxiety, understand their emotions, and understand their peers better.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) workshops to help employees reframe challenges in a way that opens up new possibilities and perspectives
Design thinking to foster innovation and problem solving
