Each retreat we do offers a little something different, an amazing speaker/healer/ workshop or location based activities, but it is good to know that there are always constants to look forward to. Our goal is to always create an amazing space where you, on arrival will get just what your body/mind need to. There really are no rules and nothing is mandatory - at all. 

In general - we do have a framework to jump into. We begin our mornings with guided meditation, have a variety of yoga and fitness classes available ( 2 per day), optional off site excursions, workshops where you can learn something too. It is a full day 7:00am to dinner at 7:00pm of things to do, and plenty of time to do nothing/treat yourself to some spa services or a nap by the pool. 

It is good once on retreat, to listen to your body - often times sleeping in, taking a nap a quiet walk or corner with a book is where you will be able to reset, find your true you!! ( the link I send you later will have a 'tentative' timeline that will most likely mold and shape up to the day we arrive on island) 

  • Guided morning meditation daily 
  • Fitness/yoga classes (2 per day)
  • 3 hand crafted meals per day & n/a beverages  - we'll always feed you!
  • Sunset Catamaran Sail 
  • Guided hikes
  • Midday workshops/activies things to do or mandatory time to relax ;) 
  • Time to relax, unwind, (have a glass of wine!) get some sunshine and simply chill with friends!


Good food, properly sourced and well combined is critical to feeling alive and critical to us in hosting you regardless of location. Rest assured, all of our meals are hand crafted, organic, locally sourced plant based offerings from green juice to desserts that will blow your mind. We create properly combined offerings easy to digest, so that from beginning to end we are nourishing you. Opportunities to ask questions, take home recipes, discuss meal prep even the option to pop into the kitchen and assist if that is something you are looking to do! All of your meals are included in your stay. We have an onsite concierege too so if you are interested in visiting local places she will point us in the right direction - the ***Thursday of our trip there is an artist walk downtown Rincon we will enjoy with a lot of fun local food vendors to explore too!

With a background in natural medicine, hospitality, Elizabeth Patnode is also a nationally recognized plant based chef and yoga teacher of 17+ years. She moved to Vermont 11 years ago from The Bay area and quickly noticed the magic of The Green Mountains as well as a need for community and wellness. Drawing on her expertise of community building and passion for wellness, True North was born - one by one, two by two you, we are a community of you! A place to reset, a place to connect. To laugh and download a bit head home with the feeling 'That was the best vacation yet!'


I had a wonderful vacation with a group of amazing women! The yoga was a great way to kickstart my winter fitness and the meals were delicious. Loved the Villa, oceanfront with beautiful beach. Our local guides were thoughtful and caring. I would highly recommend and will be back to Rincon!

Still in the afterglow...this retreat was about so much more than yoga. I felt nourished physically, spiritually and emotionally. Liz does such an incredibly thoughtful and creative job of organizing. The food, the company, the setting, the activities...all perfection. I can't wait to go back!
