Before the holiday season arrives, take time to focus on yourself and re-energize your body, mind, and spirit by joining us on a Run//Yoga Retreat. Set in beautiful Carmel, at ‘The Carmel Valley Villa,’ you may partake in daily yoga classes, scenic runs, and relaxing recovery time in the indoor hot tub and pool. Along with enjoying the great outdoors, you will dine on fresh, local, and wholesome food prepared by San Francisco chef Alison Monuntford of Square Meals. There will also be ample free time for exploring, hiking, or just lazing on the beach.
All athletic ability levels and experience are welcome, however it is required that you have completed at least a half marathon within the past year if you choose to go on Saturday’s guided run. Due to the layout of the Villa, we highly encourage you to bring a friend or partner to share your room with.
The 11+ mile scenic run will be led by certified run coach and ultra marathon runner, Alex Ho. Alex has a passion for taking people out of their comfort zones and leading them on new adventures. So why run the 17 mile drive? It is simply a different way to experience a beautiful place. Half trail and half road, the picturesque coastal run takes you along the historic roadway where we pass the world renown Spyglass and Pebble Beach golf courses. This will be a “no drop” run with multiple stops along the way to enjoy the views. It will be open and available for all, with the goal of enjoying the beauty of Carmel’s popular scenic route while connecting with some new friends over a nice long run.
Jacqui Rowley will head up the daily yoga sessions, incorporating both energizing and restorative principles into her classes. Jacqui’s teaching methodology integrates precise alignment principles and breath into a vinyasa flow sequence that will leave you feeling challenged and restored, without adding unnecessary layers of intensity. Jacqui approaches each class with the group’s needs in mind to create a safe environment to learn, let go and relax.
Fueling our bodies with healthy, fresh and incredibly tasty meals is a big part of this retreat weekend. Chef Alison Mountford uses fresh, local ingredients and will take great care to keep us fed and fueled throughout each day.
