MedTreks Wellness Retreat

April 17 - 24, 2021

Hello friends, yogis, adventure enthusiasts & healthcare heroes!

If there is ever a time to invest in your own health, relax, recharge and is now. Come here to find the spark for life the yogis call Bodhichitta. There is an inner fire that recedes when we are without nature for too long, come rest with us and work into your practice long enough to rekindle your own unique light. We are not going into a yoga studio, but a place to adventure- into yoga, surfing, music, community, charity and beautification. MedTreks has designed this retreat with healthcare professionals, healers and caregivers specifically in mind as this past year has been exhausting with COVID stressors and increased workloads. We however, welcome friends and loved ones to this experience as well! We invite beginners of all ages and interests and practiced yogis all the same.

Join the adventure of learning to be alive again.
