As if you needed an excuse to pack up and head to Maui. In their latest offering, the founders of SHIFT Mind Body Spirit are bringing their luxury wellness experience to the Four Seasons Maui at Wailea this fall. From September 15 – 21, SHIFT founder Nicole Fogel has planned the ultimate week of what they call “transformative travel” — a mix of mindful awareness, fitness motivation, holistic nutrition and spiritual healing.
After Nicole’s own experience with a chronic autoimmune condition, she found herself on a profoundly healing journey through travel, mindfulness, nutrition, fitness, and self-love. Now, through SHIFT, she hopes to provide others with the same. By gathering all that’s needed, including top minds in health and wellness, SHIFT provides a 360-degree immersion program to facilitate lasting transformation. Attendees will experience inspiration, education and some pretty deep challenges as they work through the seven days of the retreat.
Their first retreat in Maui, the SHIFT Mind Body Soul team makes it their goal to create space for old beliefs to be released and new beliefs that better support us to emerge, enhancing physical, emotional, mindful and spiritual well-being.
Each guest’s SHIFT Mind Body Soul experience will be intentionally designed to nurture and support their own personal wellness journey. Individual practice as well as group experiences are woven into the week to help each guest create subtle shifts in thinking, belief and intention.
Some of the most high-impact elements of the retreat will no doubt come from this line-up of incredible wellness pros — all of them friends of the TCM community…
