About this trip

Get your energy flowing and your skin glowing!

Join Katrina, Nikki and Chef Perla for restorative yoga & meditation practices, holistic skincare and elevated eating. Drawn from the lens of Ayurveda this three day luxurious retreat in Encinitas, CA will focus on replenishing your vital essence of OJAS, allowing you to feel naturally beautiful from the inside out. 

“OJAS" (pronounced oh-jus) *THE POWER THAT SUSTAINS US.*

 Ojas is the container that holds your abundant energy.  You've heard of the saying "You can't pour from an empty cup?" Well ojas is the cup. It is the vital sap that gives us vitality, radiance and resilience, as well as promotes creativity, mental clarity, compassion, and spiritual strength. It is the pure essence of kapha (water and earth) and helps to sustain us. When we are under the weather, impatient, stressed, dissatisfied, negative, exhausted or depleted, that means our ojas is low!  

When you leave this retreat you will feel calm, empowered, beautiful, healthy, loving and strong...isn't time to return back to your OG self?  ; ) 

Over the weekend, you will learn about the ayurvedic process of building ojas, restoring your inherent vitality, and reconnecting to a state of balance and well-being through yoga, meditation, and ojas enhancing treatments and workshops. 

With ample time for rest, nourishment and self care, we will slow down the aging process, boost your immunity, activate your senses and bring back your body, mind and spirit to a state of harmonious balance. It’s time to GLOW.

Meet your hosts: 

Katrina Amato is no stranger to the often harsh impacts the beauty world can have on a woman’s personal evolution. By way of Madison WI, her 20-year journey professionally modeling, and dancing infused a deep desire in Katrina to find a way to help women take their “beauty power” back into their own hands. She felt compelled to support their discovery of what beauty feels like, rather than being told what it should be. All of this inspired her pursuit of becoming a licensed holistic esthetician and Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor.

Katrina is passionate about educating her clients on whole-plant organic skincare, helping them create rituals to reconnect with themselves daily, and to teach them techniques to better their health so they can age gracefully.  Come soak up the vast wealth of knowledge that Katrina so lovingly shares alongside her magica,l healing touch. 


A 500 hour Registered Yoga and Meditation teacher, Nikki Nie uses the system of Tantric Hatha Yoga to facilitate spaces for others to master their energy and ultimately their life. 

She feels we are only as healthy as our mind, and blends principles of Ayurveda and the healing energy of Reiki to bring ultimate balance and wellness to her clients.

As a holistic wellness guide Nikki has a strong drive to help create spaces for others to heal, find balance and shine their light! In order to expand her reach Nikki has teamed up with major forces in the wellness industry. Partnering with KINRGY, expanded fitness by Julianne Hough, she has shared on the Oprah 2020 vision tour, as well as taught on multiple Tony Robbins virtual seminars. She has also created yoga and meditation content for Tonal, Fabletics Fit, CLI Studios and Hello Core. Her mastery of teaching and warm positive vibe will be just want you need to feel like a true goddess this weekend!

Welcome to your restorative wellness weekend! 

For those staying at our gorgeous Encinitas house, you can start settling in between 1-3pm. Everyone else can start getting to know one another from 2-4pm over pranically charged grazing boards and refreshing non-alcoholic beverages. 

From 4-6pm we will gather for our Opening Ceremony to connect within and also with each other. Through meditation and kirtan we will shift our vibration and allow our highest intentions to come through as we plant seeds for the weekend. Our circle will be sealed with protection through the forces of reiki and we will be clear and ready to embark on this journey of restoration and radical self-love. 

It’s time to eat! At 6:30pm Chef Perla will nourish everyone with her consciously crafted dinner that will not only be healthy and vegan but sensually delicious. There’s nothing like sharing a meal with like minded women because this bonding time will undoubtedly set into motion friendships that can last a life time. 

A good nights rest is vital to building ojas. This grown up slumber party will have all the cozy fun vibes while also following the ayurvedic clock, allowing everyone to be ready for bed by 10pm. Sweet dreams goddess.

This was a life changing experience in the most magical place for a yoga teacher training, Bali! Keli and Nikki are genuine beautiful souls who truly embody the teachings of tantric hatha yoga. The half online half in person was a perfect combo for me working full time. The guest teachers they introduced offered different valuable perspectives. The bonds created with my fellow students were so special. If you want to dive deep into the authentic tantra hatha yoga teachings (for yourself or to teach your community), reclaim your power and innate wisdom, learn the tools needed for a life with much less suffering, take this training! You are worth the investment!

There is no way to capture in words how impacting this training was, you just have to say “yes” and experience it for yourself. It was physically, mentally and spiritually one of the best things I have ever done in my life! Keli and Nikki are the best teachers you will ever meet because they have learned from their own lives and integrated the teachings for themselves.

What a lovely experience! I took a chance since I hadn’t met Nikki before to try this retreat. I am a therapist and have my 200 hr YT and I have to say that she and this trip was excellent. I learned so much, got to focus on my healing journey, and have an amazing teacher! I’d highly recommend this!

As a newbie to yoga and Reiki, I had reservations about how things would go, but this was the most amazing experience! It didn't hurt that it was in a gorgeous setting with wonderful people and really awesome food. I can't say enough how great the entire trip was. I learned a ton, including how to play again, and connected to myself and others in really meaningful ways. If I could give this trip 10 stars, I would!
