      About this trip

      One of the best times to visit Japan is in the spring when the world-famous Japanese cherry blossoms are in full bloom. So we thought, what if we combined cherry blossoms with yoga on a wellness retreat? It was a match made in heaven.


      This retreat will include travel around Japan with a local private guide. We will enjoy yoga as scheduled, along with daily cultural experiences. 



      You will be staying 6 nights at centrally located Hyatt Regency hotels that are highly rated and 1 night at a 5-star, traditional Ryokan with an onsite Japanese Onsen.


      Plan your air travel to arrive at Haneda International Airport in Tokyo (HND) on April 2nd, no later than 3 PM.

      Plan your air travel to depart from Haneda International Airport in Tokyo (HND) on April 9th, no earlier than 2 PM ( We will take a morning flight from Osaka to Tokyo, which is included)


      We will travel 1 hour from Kyoto to Osaka by van and then another hour from Osaka to Tokyo.


      Other information:


      * Schedule is subject to change.

      ** Please note that Japanese Onsens are separated by gender and are experienced in the nude. The Onsen and all activities listed are completely optional.

      Meet Your Host Amanda White

      The moment I found yoga, I began transforming into the person I am today. On the mat I learned how to love myself and others. Then suddenly it became obvious that I needed to transcend the unhealthy habits, relationships, and career path that previously defined me. 

      In 2009 I received my 200-hour Teacher Training from Yoga South in Boca Raton. It was here that I gained the foundation of alignment, sequencing, and adjustments that are staples of my teaching style. Later, I received a Yin Teacher certification from Little Ocean Yoga in Jupiter. Today, I continue to practice with mentors regularly because I understand that an exceptional teacher must also be a devoted student.

       I am hands-on and I love to challenge students. When I’m not teaching yin, I generally guide a physically demanding, yet intuitive vinyasa flow that connects the body to the breath, mind and spirit. I encourage students to stay present through each posture and go inward to examine their self-limiting thoughts.

      I believe our realities are shaped by our thoughts. And if we can rewire them to be more open, loving and forgiving, we can create healthier bodies and minds. 

      I believe adjustments are another way to inspire students to go inward by helping them stretch beyond self-imposed limitations.

      I hope to challenge students’ perceptions on the mat so they may see life off the mat differently. Of course, always with love, patience and encouragement.

      Day 1 - April 2nd, 2024
      Tokyo - Arrival & Welcome

      Welcome to Tokyo, the nation's capital! Did you know that with over 9 million residents, Tokyo is classified as the largest city in the world? And that's not even counting the neighboring towns in the Greater Tokyo region, bringing the number to a whopping 36 million! Your private car will collect you from the airport and take you to your accommodations. 

      Plan your travel to arrive in Tokyo no later than April 2nd.  We'll meet at the hotel that evening for dinner and group orientation. On this first day together, we will plan to visit the famous Shibuya Crossing: The busiest crossing in Tokyo.

      Shibuya Crossing is one of Tokyo's most recognizable sights, pictured in countless films, magazines, and blogs. During its busiest times, an estimated 1,000 to 2,500 people forge their way across this intersection every two minutes, enough to quickly fill up a football stadium.

      7:00 PM - Welcome dinner as a group, followed by an orientation.

      Lodging: Hyatt Regency Tokyo

      ** Please arrive before 3 PM today

      As perfect a trip as I could have imagined! Amy and Brian were gracious and kind hosts...and Amy and her mom kept us well-fed! Chantel was an awesome yoga instructor--listened to us and catered classes to the needs of the group often based on our energy levels and physical challenges of the moment. She was also a supremely delightful traveling companion...driving us a total of nine hours in the van--back and forth to from SLC airport. A huge selling point for me was not having to arrange any transportation--bravo to Walker Wellness for creating a package that required extremely minimal extra out-of-pocket expenses. And the hiking, omg! Zion is deliriously beautiful and Bryce is downright Biblical in its majesty. The trip was also impeccably structured--a super challenging hike for the first full day and then a shorter hike that began later in the morning the following day with more time to rest in the afternoon.

      Wow! By far the trip to Zion was my best travel experience. The accommodations were very spacious, clean, and homey. Huge picture windows, a deck, hot tub, fire place, …The food was delicious and healthy. Amy is a great cook! The yoga was adjusted to what we needed prehike and post. It went beyond just yoga - there was sound healing, visualization, and more. Transportation to and from the parks made it easy for us. And did I mention the hikes? Stunning! Breath-taking! Fun! Lots of fond memories and I look forward to traveling with Brian and Amy again.

      Great trip. Beautiful hiking.
      By Lisa S for Zion National Park Hiking & Yoga on Oct 26, 2023
      This trip was beyond my expectations! It's rare to go on a trip where you only need to book a flight and after that every detail is handled for you. The accommodations were fantastic but the food was really the best part! I felt completely taken care of by the Walker Wellness Retreats team especially Shantel and Amber, who are delightful and talented people. I was able to relax, disconnect and get to know the wonderful group all while enjoying moving my body on the yoga mat and through breathtaking nature. Thank you to the whole crew at Walker Wellness Retreats for being so good at what you do!
      By Victoria S for Zion (Nectar Yoga) on Oct 24, 2023
      Excellent retreat, from start to finish. Two great, varied yoga sessions each day; well-planned daily hiking trips, with freedom to go on challenging hikes, easy hikes, or just chill; delicious and thoughtfully prepared meals; lovely house and environment. Each day matched the trip itinerary on-line, but it was made clear that we had options as it was "our retreat." And it was a very fun group that really enjoyed hanging out together! Thank you to Alle, Amber, and Walker Wellness. Total 5-star experience, and I'd gladly go again.
