Meals & Dining

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included on most retreats.  The food is grounding,  nourishing and amazing!  ‘Meal Master Skillet’ prepares the most delicious, nutritious meals made with local, fresh vegetables, meats, fish, grains and legumes.  Our ingredients come directly from our organic garden or other local farms.  All meals have gluten free and vegetarian options and can accommodate most special food needs and allergies.  We make our own granola, refrescos, ‘ice cream’, kombucha, saurkraut, chocolate balls, sauces, dressings and desserts.

You are welcome to our table as family and friends.  There is always an abundance of food, and a joyful celebration while eating it.  We dine out at a local restaurant one time during the retreat.

“The week I spent with Sweet Retreats was not only inspiring but uplifting and opening.

I had the honor of meeting 20 strong people who wanted to learn and improve themselves. The energy was contagious and motivating.

I’d recommend this trip to anyone who wants to sweat, swim and smile for an entire week.”

– Katherine Hutchinson (Oakland, CA)

Upcoming Retreats

Sweet Retreats has encouraged me to be a better version of myself both physically in the circus arts and also personally in my interactions with friends and the community.  The instructors at Sweet Retreats are not only world class performers, they are also some of the most caring, beautiful, and authentic individuals. I’m so fortunate to have discovered this paradise of athletic endeavors, delicious food, unending laughter, and all within the gorgeous surroundings.

—  Liz Marotte, Oakland, CA


At Sweet Retreats, we pride ourselves on quality, and this starts with our instructors.  No matter which retreat you sign up for, you are guaranteed to have world class instruction.  Each retreat has a different focus, and all of our teachers are masters of their disciplines.  You can see descriptions of each retreat with teacher bios here.

Sweet Retreats Chloe Axelrod, Shaly Acerodon, Jenn Bruyer, Paper Doll Militia, Kerri Kresinski, Cohdi Harrell, Kameko Shibata, Jocelyn RudigShira YazivMaia Adams, and more.

The first time I went to Sweet Retreats I was at a crossroad – both for my aerial training and in my professional life. Sweet Retreats gave me the confidence to move to the next level in both. A supportive and fun training environment, that extends beyond the mat into the communal social nature of the retreat, Sweet Retreats gets under your skin!

I came away bursting with new skills and excited to share them, and a whole range of new friends from around the world. But more importantly, it gave me time and space to reconnect to myself and a chance to remember what inspires me. There’s nothing quite like being away from it all, surrounded by like-minded people all out to stretch their bodies and minds, to focus the mind.

Two retreats later I have the confidence to take my aerial to the level I want to – having spent time working on performance skills in a safe environment. And I’ve left my energy-sapping government job to move into the charity sector where I feel more myself again.

So thanks Sweet Retreats!
