Nourish Retreat

Nourish: A sea-kayaking retreat for body, soul, and belly

We are collaborating with Breakwater Expeditions to create a unique experience that connects the soul-nourishing environment of the ocean with body-nourishing meals of whole foods. 

NourishSeaKayakIn this four-day retreat, you will explore the San Juan islands by sea kayak, landing on the beach each night to explore culinary delights accompanied by nutrition education. As we prepare the cedar-plank wild-caught salmon over flame, we’ll dive into a deeper understanding of the health benefits of cold-water fish, the omega acids they provide, and how you might address your own health concerns with the food on your plate.

Each day will be an adventure in landscapes and better understanding of your unique nutritional needs and how to meet them. Between the nutrient-dense meals we’ll provide, days spent paddling through pristine nature, and direct access to a nutritionist, the retreat provides a setting that replenishes and provides you the tools to apply your knowledge at home and in your life.
