Hudson Valley Long Weekend
Thu, 11 May 2017, 15:00 – Sun, 14 May 2017, 14:00 EDT
The retreat includes a total of 8 fun movement sessions of varied intensity, delicious, locally-sourced food, and expert tuition from our team of Wildfitness Coaches. We will summarize our approach in a few informal workshops, and provide ways in which to incorporate what you have learned into your daily lives.
We will spend one of our days on premises at the beautiful Minnewaska Lodge, and one exploring the Mohonk Preserve, a stunning expanse of nature that gives us all the tools we need to practice graceful, efficient movement. During our time in the Preserve and on the lodge grounds, we will be delivering a wide variety of sessions:
• High Intensity Sessions
• Wild Movement
• Combat Basics
• Vaults and Precision Jumps
• Hiking, Scrambling and Climbing • Combos (putting it all together) and our signature “Lactic Liftoff”
Here's what to expect:
Thursday Clients will arrive mid to late afternoon. After a meet and greet and settling accommodations, we will have an activity session followed by dinner and the opportunity for them to rest.
Friday This will be spent on site at the Minnewaska Lodge, where we will host various activity sessions about the lodge's beautiful, surrounding property. There will be breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as the opportunities to rest and enjoy downtime in the gorgeous NY setting. Each client will also be treated to a half hour massage.
Saturday After a quick breakfast, clients will be transported to the Lost City area of the Minnewaska preserve. The day will encompass a hike that incorporates much of the concepts covered in the day's activities in a more backcountry setting. This includes some light trail running, scrambling, light climbing, exploration, and lunch atop a stunning vista overlooking the valley. Clients will return to the lodge for our final, celebratory dinner.
Sunday One final memorable activity session will be followed by breakfast and then farewell.
Our approach is refreshingly simple: source food locally, from sustainable ecosystems, to create tasty, fresh dishes with real food. We tend to minimise grains and dairy, caffeine and alcohol as well as processed foods. It is not a complicated approach, just delicious!
We will be staying at the Minnewaska Lodge with its backdrop of dramatic cliffs.
The rest element is woven into the retreat in spontaneous moments of meditation while hiking, breathing techniques to help reduce stress and, of course, the setting without urban distraction designed to help you feel rested and refreshed after each night
The team will be Natalie (Nala) Hurst - Head Coach, Nala has over 8 years of experience as a PT and she's excellent at coaxing lost movement out of every client on any retreats she delivers. Josh Valentine - Coach, lives every day as wildly as he can, in fact, he can be described as an adventure expert and athlete. Josh spends a lot of his time mountaineering, rock and ice climbing, whitewater kayaking, and extreme trail running. Finally Hannah Beadle - Coach, since joining Wildfitness back in 2015 Hannah has been on a journey. She has discovered a world away from fitness regimes and found a way to do exercise in a way that the human body was made for.
The Wildfitness Hudson Valley Retreat starts on a Thursday afternoon at 1.00pm and ends after lunch on Sunday.
