About this trip

Join Melanie for a week of self-exploration through the medicine of the four elements. This retreat was designed to illuminate the various facets of who we are and the lives we live through the energy both literally and figuratively of earth, air, fire, and water. Your week at Still Salty will include daily yoga, various workshops, and ceremonies centered around each element. We can learn so much from how fire burns, air moves, earth grounds, and water flows. 

All classes are open level, so any and all level practitioners are welcome! Come spend time unplugged in nature, enjoying the beach, surfing, yoga, ecstatic dance, and so much more!

*5% of the proceeds from this retreat will be donated to local non-profit organization, Rise Up Retreats. This donation is used exclusively to support environmental initiatives within the area in an effort to empower people through nurturing the planet.
