Do I need to be a fitness fanatic / aerial gymnast to come?
Not at all! Our Sky-lab Maui Retreat is all about doing as much or as little as you choose! Our intention is for you to feel fitter, healthier and maybe a little Maui sunkissed at the end of your retreat compared to when you arrive. We cater for everyone; from our ninjas who want a challenge and train consistently all week to those brand new to the practice who want to experience a new way move, sweat, swim or fly! The choice is yours each day to do as much or as little as feels right for you, if one day five classes feels right and the next a day by the pool and relax in the jacuzzi sounds in alignment go for it!
What is the food like?
In a word - unreal! We love our Chef from Alfies Kitchen so much we're bringing him over to Maui with us! Our on site chef will be cooking with the finest local Maui produce with as many whole foods and as little processed foods as possible. From power packed breakfasts, to gutsy salads, lean BBQ meats, seafood, rices, spices and amazing flavours; everything is fresh and prepared fresh daily. Have a special request? We will aim to meet it. Vegetarians and Vegans are easily catered for.
Is coffee allowed? Or how about a cheeky glass of wine or beer?
Coffee is definitely allowed! And will be provided for you in your villa or in the main Lele banquet room daily - who doesn't want to wake up to that on holidays! If you want to relax and unwind with a glass of wine or beer feel free, we only ask that noise be kept at a minimum after 10pm, and alcohol would need to be purchased personally.
Can I do my own thing during the day or do I have to stick to the schedule?
You are free to choose what you do each day! All our training sessions and activities are optional. Within our scheduled indoor classes, outdoor tropical deck workouts or beach sessions our trainers will provide you with options to challenge you depending on your fitness level and experience. Feel like working out in the morning, relaxing in the pool during the day and taking a sunset beach walk before dinner - great! Feel like sleeping in and taking a mid morning Surf Lesson, having lunch and joining into the afternoon and evening workout session before watching a movie - awesome! Feel like taking five workout sessions a day, SUP before breakfast and leaving like a lean machine - rad go for it! As long as you are enjoying yourself, doing what you want to do and having a great time then we are happy.
What's in the area that I'm able to walk to?
Walk across the road to The Cove beach to go surfing, snorkeling or stand up paddle boarding (surf schools and board hire available on request). At the end of our road is Charley Young Beach, a long stretch of white sand great for swimming, snorkeling, beach walks and boogie boarding, a popular location for sunset wedding ceremonies. Neighboring Kalama Park’s large playground, skate park, outdoor roller skating rink, tennis courts, basketball courts and running paths. Surf Schools, bicycle and scooter rentals, spa treatments and a farmer’s market are just around the corner.
Can I head out to town?
Of course, shopping or dining at nearby restaurants are all within walking distance from our Villa Estate. Just let one of our trainers know your heading out and have fun! NB. If you have had a drink you will be unable to join us for any fitness activities or workout sessions.
