Would YOU Try a Luxury Yoga Cannabis Retreat?
Want your next vacation to reach a new high? Join Ketanga Fitness Retreats for their first-ever cannabis yoga retreat, Cannamaste, in the Mile High City this spring.
ICYMI: Marijuana has officially hit the luxury market. Last year, glamorous glossy Gossamer Magazine hit the racks billed as an outlet “for people who also smoke weed.” This month, Barneys New York announced its forthcoming “The High End” cannabis curation shop in Beverly Hills. People are shelling out $30 per six-pack of hemp-infused Recess sparkling water and $60 for Lord Jones CBD-infused body lotion. Now, wellness retreats are hopping on the bandwagon for a piece of that pot pie.
Launched in 2014, Ketanga Fitness Retreats has made a name for itself with its curated, small-group fitness adventures hosted worldwide, from equestrian galloping across the Irish countryside to fun-in-the-sun boot camps in Costa Rica. This spring, the company is gearing up for a new type of trip: cannamaste (that’s cannabis + namaste) in Colorado.
The four-day, three-night Denver retreat is designed to show how the notorious plant can actually enhance yoga, and vice versa, while working to erase the negative stigma surrounding the cannabis culture. Led by Ganja Yoga-certified instructor Rebecca Weible, who also founded NYC’s Yo Yoga!, the trip includes two daily yoga sessions, a mountain hiking excursion, a visit to a local dispensary, a “cooking with cannabis” class, a CBD workshop, a group dinner at a top Denver restaurant, and an optional hemp farm tour.
And then there are the accommodations. Guests will be put up in a luxurious seven-bedroom private home—a recent filming spot of The Bachelor, if that’s enough to convince you—complete with a hot tub, an outdoor dining space, and kitchen cabinets stocked with fresh breakfast ingredients.
Want in? The retreat ($1,775 excluding airfare to and from Denver) takes place May 3-6, 2019.
