      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

      Such a beautiful house for the retreat, the meals were phenomenal ! The yoga instructor was amazing! A little hot for the hikes but still very beautiful!

      Brian and Amy know the right balance between having time to explore on one's own and taking an informative cultural tour. The hotels were top rate. The restaurants chosen for the group dinners gave excellent service and the Greek food was so delicious. This company values its clients and keeps the group under 12. I loved my Greece travel experience!

      This has been my favorite yoga/hiking retreat. The accommodations are amazing, our instructor and guide Alle was so informative and accommodating. The food was 5 star, our chef Amber is such a talent; I was blown away. We got to see and do everything we wanted; I also made some great friends. I highly recommend this retreat. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated, it was just what I needed!

      This was my first trip with Walker Wellness Retreats and I plan for it to the first of many. Every detial of this bucket list trip did not disappoint. Every question was answered in a timely fashion prior to leaving. A comprehensive itinerary was provided as well as a solid packing list and travel tips. Amy is true gem to travel with and readily offers her knowledge on the location and culture. She is an expert in dinner conversations that are meaningful and thought provoking. The scenery and culture of Africa is truly incredible and I would highly encourage everyone to make it a priority to visit and going with Walker Wellness Retreats is a cut above and 100% worth every penny.
