Find clarity and inspiration through the healing power of horses at an Unbridled Retreat for women July 27-31, 2022 at the adults-only wellness enclave Sensei Lanai, A Four Seasons Resort.
During the five-day, four-night program, guests will experience empowering daily coaching sessions in the arena designed to break down inhibitions, stimulate creativity and help participants achieve sustainable well-being. The intimate group setting offers a supportive and restorative environment along with personal attention, camaraderie, and inspiration.
Internationally renowned Equine Gestalt Coach Devon Combs, inspirational speaker and founder of Unbridled Retreats, will be leading the retreat. Combs has a unique synergy with horses, and her expert intuitive coaching provides profound breakthroughs to women who seek to unlock their unlimited potential.
Guests start their journey to Lanai at the Honolulu airport, where they await semi-private transfers to the island on Lanai Air. Encompassing rolling hills, tropical greenery, and unimaginable natural beauty, the 24-acre (10 hectare) sanctuary is the very picture of serenity and tranquillity, offering an ideal setting where guests can commit to personal wellness.
Over the course of five days, Devon will guide participants through three equine coaching sessions – hands-on interactions with horses on the ground. The Unbridled Retreat is a profound, life-changing experience that leads women to immediate and positive change. Guests will share moments with horses that will alter the way they see themselves, reveal pathways they didn’t know existed, and help them become their most courageous, authentic selves.
Supported by highly trained Sensei practitioners in areas such as exercise physiology, nutrition, stress management, yoga and mindfulness, guests can then customize the rest of their stay all in pursuit of movement, nourishment and rest – the three paths of Sensei’s evidence-led approach. Enjoy private wellness consultations, complimentary fitness classes, yoga and meditation as well as weekly lectures led by the Sensei Guide Team, who hold advanced degrees in their respective areas. Guests can experience world-class spa treatments such as aquatic bodywork and reflexology in a 1,000 square foot (93 square metre) spa hale featuring infrared saunas, steam rooms, indoor and outdoor showers, ofuro baths and more. Horseback riding for all riding levels is available each afternoon at the Lanai Ranch. Members of the retreat will also enjoy a sunset sail on Lanai II, a 65 foot (20 metre) luxury catamaran to take in the splendid views of the dramatic coastline and aquatic life.
At Sensei by Nobu, dishes bring together world-renowned Japanese Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s classics as well as menu selections that incorporate Sensei’s nutritional philosophy. Along with a la carte meals and a final omakase dinner at Sensei by Nobu, guests will also enjoy a dinner at ONE FORTY restaurant overlooking beautiful Hulopoe Bay at sister property Four Seasons Resort Lanai. The retreat closes with a group ceremony led by Devon Combs to reflect on personal takeaways, leaving guests with a renewed focus and clarity about who they are, what they desire, and how to move forward to create a positive future.
