Go pack your bag—and add an extra pair of wicking capris.

A handful of amazing instructors are offering seriously healthy retreats where you can focus on fitness and yoga, eating super healthy food (without having to cook it), and your vitamin D intake. And each getaway unfolds at an all-out gorgeous, chic, and inspiring location.

Here are three hot retreats that we deem worth planning your early summer around. —Melisse Gelula

Swim, Run, Spin, Retreat
Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, Scottsdale, AZ, June 23–25

If you’re in triathlon mode, balance your hard-core training schedule with two nights at the luxe boutique-chic surrounds of Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain—oh, while getting coached by Olympic Gold Medal swimmer Misty Hyman on form, speed, and science and World Masters track cycling champion Terry Roach. The retreat is open to just 12 participants, so you can get lots of feedback on your challenges (more elbow room in the stunning infinity pool). And the program also comes with nutritious meals (celeb chef Beau MacMillian heads up the kitchen), and targeted spa treatments for athletes. Rates start at $2,550, including meals, coaching, and two spa treatments. For information and to book, call 480-624-8513

The Class with Taryn Toomey
Martha’s Vineyard, July 13–19

The downtown fitness phenom takes her mind-blowing, fitness-catharsis method off the island of Manhattan to the island of Martha’s Vineyard (and the adorable Vineyard Arts Project specifically). Toomey, whose super-popular workouts borrow from yoga in philosophy and boot camps in athleticism, is joined by an amazing wellness posse: yogi instructor and musician Kevin Courtney (of Kula Yoga Project), acupuncturist Thomas Droge, and Nourish Kitchen’s Marissa Lippert, who’ll serve you farm-to-table dinners at sunset with just picked organic produce. Plan your summer around this rejuvenating retreat. Rates start at $2,000, including meals and transfers from the ferry. For more information and to book, visit or write

Amansala Eco-Chic Resort, Tulum, July 18–23

Double your yoga pleasure at this stylish beach resort: You’ll flow with Tom Morley, a star vinyasa instructor at Maha Yoga, the holy hot center of rad yoga-music action in Los Angeles, and sweat with fitness-expert-turned-yogi Ryan Orrico, the (super fun) creator of athletic-yoga workout Maha Burn. Their five-day retreat includes two yoga classes a day, three meals, beach walks, meditation with Tom, and time to “chill and party with cool people.” You’ll leave looking sexier and feeling amazing, says Orrico. And given that’s pretty much what happens after their classes in Brentwood, you should believe him at the beach. Rates start at $797, including meals.
