SoulTribe Adventures offers unique retreats perfect for solo travellers, friends and couples looking to experience something beyond just 'going on vacation'. We're for people who are at a pivotal moment in life, processing a new direction or just need a FUN and meaningful moment to remember who you are and reconnect to your inner fire, courage and joy. We are for people interested in personal growth and supportive community while connecting and challenging your body and mind. Our deal is, "you do you", but we offer plenty of opportunities to make this an experience that will ignite positive shifts in your life.
This hybrid adventure is an active retreat focused on mental and physical wellness, good food, good people, and adventure with a healthy dose of humor and play. We're more like a summer camp for adults than a meditative retreat, and this trip is designed to refresh you, inspire you and make you feel part of something. Join a tribe that celebrates your uniqueness, lifts you up and encourage you to be you and do you, but also be your best. SoulTribe members show up for ourselves and each other, we dig deep and come home transformed in some way.
The locations we select and the activities we curate may push you out of your comfort zone, make you face fears and look at how you show up to new and exciting challenges. We work hard, play hard and rest hard. We start to break through patterns that have kept us from our full potential, all while building real friendships for life!
Coming from a background in fitness, Nathania stumbled into yoga by accident in 2009 and what started as a purely physical adventure become a journey towards learning to slow down, healing old wounds and experiencing profound personal transformation. Through a dedicated yoga practice and a Master's degree in Psychology, Nat unearthed a passion for helping others believe in themselves, dare to make shifts in their lives and be unapologetically real. She believes that a strong mind-body connection is a powerful path to self-love and understanding. Learning to explore your limits, learning to lean into instead of away from challenging moments, learning to accept what is but relish in the process of working for what you want - the lessons are endless and always applicable to life. Nat's classes are athletic and fluid, creatively sequenced and sprinkled with playful arm balances and transitions. Expect yourself to be inspired and to learn to laugh at yourself. Expect to discover how your time on the mat is a mirror for your life and an invaluable tool to help you become your own best supporter. Nathania owns and operates Yogi Flight School, an online arm balance and inversion program that teaches you to break through your self perceived limitations, become a yoga ninja and prove to yourself that ANYTHING is possible. Nat founded SoulTribe Adventures in 2016 and has run over 15 international retreats since.
Gary's story beings in college when he won the national championship in body building. During this time he began to languish away as a computer programmer and ultimately a technology manager in his day job. To spice things up, he performed and ultimately taught and directed improv comedy. At the same time he applied his knowledge and love of training and became a co-founder of the international fitness and nutrition company Metabolic Effect, leading weekend seminars both nationally and internationally as well as online seminars and trainings in fitness, fat loss, nutrition and mindset. During these 20-odd years, Gary discovered that these two worlds are not as unrelated as they may seem on the surface. The ability to stretch (both your mind and muscle), see perceived failures and mistakes as opportunities for success, the ability to laugh at yourself and to always be learning are just a few of the key skills that Gary imparts on his students and peers. Not only will you learn how to workout in the most effective manner for every situation you may find yourself in in life, but you will also learn to progress and regress workouts to your needs, and learn about the power of the mind-muscle connections running through your body.
Movement and play are a big part of our programs. Dropping the hats we wear and feeling like kids again brings us back to who we truly are and gives us a chance to look at life with a fresh perspective. Our daily yoga & fitness classes are accessible and challenging for all, and designed to remind you that you can do anything you set your mind to - especially if you approach it with a sense of humor. You don't need to be a yogi or a fitness buff - you just need to be a human being interested in exploring, playing, growing and getting your movement on! If you'd like to dabble in the world of mindfulness and mediation without being too serious about it, or want to learn to stand on your hands or head, we've got you there too!
