Professional Snowboarder Creates Women’s Wellness Program

May 12, 2014

image001Professional snowboarder turned soul surfer, Me-Shell Mijangos, realized an opportunity ten years ago to combine her two passions to create a Maui-based wellness program for women.

The surf and yoga vacations, designed to help women re energize, reconnect, and relax, bring together the joys of surfing a tropical paradise with the rewards of a health and wellness retreat.

When asked what a Decade of Bliss means to her, Mijangos responded, “I think of all the amazing women that have come through our week and all the connections that have been made as a result. The women are from so many different walks of life and with different life experiences. There is a sense of strong unity among us. This has truly given me bliss.”

Guests are taught to surf by encouraging instructors in warm tropical waters on world-class surf breaks. The thrills of surfing and the rewards of accomplishment are an amazing foundation for re-connecting with oneself. “Women need to get away and be empowered from learning a new sport and taking care of themselves. I look at it as a facelift for the spirit!” explains Mijangos.

Our award winning accommodations at the Sheraton Maui Resort welcome guests to a world of relaxation and discovery.

Featuring 23 acres of lush tropical landscape, the oceanfront resort is situated along the best stretch of Ka’anapali Beach offering breathtaking views of the islands of Lanai and Molokai. During their 7-day wellness adventure, guests are also treated to a professional massage, sumptuous breakfasts, and even a luxury catamaran cruise at sunset!

A Decade of Bliss has been one long incredible wave that continues to break. The vacation of a lifetime beckons and women everywhere answer the call. 2014 Retreat dates below:
