This retreat provides you with tools and support for incorporating mindfulness and self care into your daily routine while being as active and productive as you need to be.

That's the beauty of this highly personalized retreat experience: you can pair the daily group mindful runs with either more fitness classes, sessions with a personal trainer or nutrition coach or enjoy rejuvenating spa treatments and soothing energy healing if that's what your soul craves.

Each day, enjoy a guided mindful run on beautiful Sonoran Desert trails near Canyon Ranch. Your dedicated Retreat Leader will lead you through a series of mindful running clinics that help you discover how to run with more ease and flow.

And if you've never run trails before, you'll learn how to adapt your road running technique for this new terrain. If you're an experienced trail runner, you'll take your running to a whole new level of efficiency and joy.

In fact, your wellness shouldn't be a treat at the end of a long workweek or a reward for reaching a career milestone. You are absolutely entitled to feeling energized, healthy and happy every single day. And no, you don't need to sit on a meditation cushion in order to find the stress relief you so desperately crave.

What you'll take away from this retreat:

Relief from mental noise and a non-stop racing mind.

Relief from anxiety and constant feeling that you should be doing more.

Improved sleep hygiene: find the tips, tools and tricks to sleep better so you can wake up refreshed and ready to start the day.

Mental rest from decision making, since we take care of all the logistics for you.

Connection with like-minded women who can relate to your pressures and challenges as a leader.

More flow and ease in your running and confidence on the trails.

Inspiration to continue your new healthy habits for daily self care and stress management.

Commitment to your values around health as a leadership strategy you can model for your teams.

This retreat is level I. That means it's for you if you:

Are new to trail running, but are able to run at least 3 miles at a time.

Enjoy running at a slow, or relaxed paced with lots of breaks along the way to enjoy the scenery.

Are curious about mindful running and want to learn new techniques.

Want to learn how to run more efficiently and consistently without losing breath.

Never run trails before or run them all the time.

Are coming back from an injury or layoff and want to regain lost fitness.

About the runs and pace

Your daily run/walks range from 4 to 6 miles on various trail types, from double to singletrack (we are on the trails for 1.5 - 3 hours max). 

Our run pace is relaxed and social (meaning you can talk while you run without losing your breath). 

You’ll encounter trails with loose rocks. You can walk/hike trail sections as you need.

The trail surfaces are a mix of loose sand, sandstone rock and dirt trail. 

Trail running shoes and a hydration pack that can carry at least 1 Liter of water are required.

About The Host

Our programs feature mindful running techniques that help women run better while maximizing running’s stress-reducing effects on the body and mind. Set in some of the world’s most inspiring natural destinations known to runners, each itinerary is an immersion in nature and wellness experiences such as yoga, hot springs, or spa.

We include the specific elements you need to have a wonderful retreat and leave out anything that doesn’t support that mission.
