Maleah & Blair

with Maleah Wilson:

A yoga and culinary retreat renewing the self, set on a 20-acre estate in an edenic lodge overlooking a private mountain lake in

Asheville, North Carolina. April 28 to May 3, 2022.

Are you stressed from forces outside?

Has the stress, instability, and tensions of modernity reached a high point in your one precious, wild life? 


Especially with the last two years?  


Maybe like me, you think life shouldn’t be this stretched and strained, this disconnected and disordered. 


But it seems like we all together get hit with one planetary adversity, just in time for another one to get started. As if the tests from outside of us will never end. 


Or inside?

And then there are the difficulties inside of us – the mysterious reluctance to meditate, or to reach out to loved ones or strangers. Even an unexplained, mysterious reluctance to eat good, delicious, healthful food  … even though we know these very actions, simple actions, seemingly easy actions, are what sustain human beings. 


Peace and calm and renewal and reconnection – especially in the face of challenges and adversities – shouldn’t be this hard. We need strength especially when challenged.

Something I learned 

I know what it’s like to feel that way – it seems the outside stresses won’t stop coming, right? And the inner resources seem locked away. 


And it can feel unclear just what we might even do about it.  


In fact, you probably know your inner resources are waiting for you … but you feel unable to tap into them. 


It’s why I became a Yoga Teacher. Why I trained to work with injuries, and became certified in Foundation Training, Vinyasa, Therapeutic, and Yin yoga. And it’s even why I’ve worked over the years to gain experience in clinical orthopedic sports medicine.


It’s also why I’ve been teaching private, semi-private and group yoga classes since 2015. Helping my clients to find their own healing – physical, yes, but also holistic reconnection.


It’s why I’ve made my purpose in life giving clients the tools to reconnect, to experience accessible yoga –  and other holistic approaches –  to find their own healing and personal power.


The Nourishing, Delicious Meals

Each meal included with the retreat is prepared by the nationally acclaimed chef, Blair Wilson, of Zero Fox Kitchen. Having worked in 5 Star restaurants and hotels, Chef Blair now caters to his own clients, creating exquisite, nutritionally balanced, healthful meals.


He chooses only the finest ingredients, and organic whenever possible, from his network of craft farms, butchers and fishers, as well as a host of other talented craftsmen. He even has connections in Asheville!

On Saturday evening we are going to let Chef Blair take the reins and create a truly once in a lifetime meal with wine pairings curated by Maleah (a retired sommelier). This meal is sure to delight all your senses.


We'll experience hiking hideaways in the blueridge mountains

Destress. Reconnect.   


At the Reconnect with Self retreat tucked away on our 20-acre estate nestled against a pristine mountain lake near Ashville, North Carolina, you’ll experience cuisine and yogic reconnection. 


You’ll destress, eat mouth-wateringly delicious meals, and experience memory-making that will become a deeply valued part of your life story. 

Carry it forward.

It’s that part of your story … of how you reconnected with yourself after 2020 and 2021 – or solidified a healthy groundedness if you’ve already established one — and gained an inner perspective and strength that can carry you forward literally for the rest of your life. 


It’s an experience that will serve you for all the years to come. 


That’s what a yoga and culinary retreat in the right setting does.


That’s why I and eight individuals are going into the mountains from April 28th to May 3, 2022.

Take action now. 

Don’t let your intentions gather dust. Move with the moment. Where will you be in six months if you don’t? Possibly in exactly the same place you are now: stressed and stuck.

The Patterns of Our Days 


Our days will follow an easy, nurturing pattern of meditation every morning, and Maleah’s signature “Functional Flow”. After that comes daily adventures such as hiking or other activities on or near the rolling 20-acre estate.


Following our morning adventures, Chef Blair will provide lunch. Following lunch,  free time in the afternoon for you to relax. Enjoy meditative walking trails around the lake.  On one afternoon we will visit downtown Asheville.  On another afternoon, we’ll make an excursion to the Biltmore. During our time at the Biltmore, we’ll experience the Monet & Friends Immersive experience.


The Elements

The Reconnect with Self Retreat is focused on reconnecting with the self through the elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. 


Each day will bring you into connection with one of these four elements, deemed symbolically essential to life in ancient culture. 


Food … Activities … Casual conversations … Yoga … all of these will be based on each day’s element, and bring you into a deeper connection with yourself. So when you return home, all the experiences return within you, grounding you, giving you power for everyday life moving forward.
