Join MVP CEO, Michelle Young, and MVP Yoga Therapy Director, Ana Pilar Cruz, outside of Seattle, Washington March 19-25, 2023. We’ll be hosting an inspirational retreat inspired by the Devi practices that cultivate a relationship with the divine feminine. In addition to yoga and self-study, participants will have the opportunity to explore Seattle’s historic, cultural, and natural wonders through planned excursions. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy mindful asana practices each morning on the beach and mindful meditation in the evening. 

Participants’ room and board, three meals daily, transportation to and from excursions, and excursion fees are included in the price of the retreat. Supplemental meals, snacks, souvenirs, and airfare are not included in the price of the retreat. 

Transportation

Transportation will be provided from the airport to your accommodation and from your accommodation back to the airport at the end of the retreat. Airfare is not included in the price of the retreat.

Location/Lodging

Our cozy lodging is approximately a 2 hours drive from the Seattle airport, and transportation to the lodge is included in the participants’ room and board. Participants will be picked up from the airport at 2 p.m. on March 19th and the group will drive to the retreat destination together. 

On March 25 participants will leave for the airport at 9 a.m. and arrive at the airport no later than 11 a.m. If a participant needs to arrive at the airport earlier it is important to account for the 2-hour drive from the retreat accommodation to the Seattle airport.

Meals

There will be three meals daily that are included in the participants’ room and board. We can accommodate most preferences, but it is important to note that it is nearly impossible for us to accommodate life-threatening allergies. If you have an allergy please contact us directly before booking your spot.

Examples of some of the meals that we will be eating during our stay include:

  • Oatmeal with granola, dried fruit, and honey
  • Scones, spreads, and jams
  • Quiche (assorted variety)
  • Salads & Soups
  • Stir-fry
  • Curry & Rice
  • Chicken Piccata & Pasta
  • Salmon & Fried Rice

COVID Protocol

MVP will follow all local guidelines regarding masks when in public places, and participants are expected to adhere to these guidelines during their stay. Social distancing will be enforced whenever possible, and hand sanitizer will be readily available.

*Please keep in mind these requirements may change between now and March 2023. MVP’s Yoga Retreat Seattle 2023 is scheduled and confirmed to take place as of April 1, 2022. Should travel be prohibited to the region due to COVID, participants would have the option of rolling their paid spot forward to a reschedule date or they could request a refund minus deposit.
