Rest & Relaxation
We can't express our excitement about the venue for our 2018 HIO Retreat! Each year our space grows more beautiful, more relaxing and more elevated and this year is no different! On a private desert hideaway estate, surrounded by miles of views. With a lake, hiking trails, fun beaches, a pool and camping grounds feet away, we are ready to take on this HIO weekend at the gem of the desert.
HIO Farmer's Market
We've always been blessed to collaborate with some of the most amazing wellness vendors in California. This year is bigger and better than ever. The HIO Farmer's Market is going to ensure that you pick up all of your favorite greens. Learn and buy from some of the most influential plant-based wellness vendors. I guarantee you won't regret it.
More space, more time and more people means more elevated yoga. Our favorite part of the day is sharing space with good energy and finding center on this beautiful retreat. With more classes, more amazing instructors and less ways to miss, we are excited to downward dog with each of you. We make sure to include these classes in all ticket ranks because we know it's one of the best ways to find balance.
The HIO Dab Bar
This year, the Dab Bar is a force to be reckoned with and we are damn proud! With extract and wax specialist from amazing companies and brands, we are excited to offer our favorite space for elevation. Not only is the energy great, if you are interested in sampling and finding the best products for you, the Dab Bar is a huge hit. At the bar is where you'll find education and elevation. All of our vendors are knowledgeable and excited to teach about the different properties of medicinal plants. Samples are available through out the duration of the event and the bar is open to all ticket levels.
HIO Wellness Workshops
So much to look forward to for 2018! We always make sure that we make time to discuss the healing properties of plant-based medicine and how it can contribute to wellness. Above all our goal is to educate and focus on our wellness of mind, body and spirit. This year we will have a panel of women in wellness, a Yogasm Workshop and so much more. Included in all ticket levels, the importance of wellness education is uncompromising to us. This retreat is a time to gather and hear the stories of transformation and peace. Let's heal.
Music & Munchies
With countless workshops, classes and amenities to partake in, we wanted to make sure that we were providing quality vibes as well. A curated selection of amazing food vendors and musical guests will be in attendance this year to give you yet another amazing feature to choose from. Relax by the pool and listen to some jams, or grab some tacos and take a seat by the lake. We are excited about the possibilities (and hungry thinking about them).
Elevated painting has been a HIO favorite since our inaugural year. Who doesn't love being able to bring back a unique keepsake like art?! This year, MyLin, of ARTxMYLIN, is back hosting multiple workshops, but we've added some other amazing creative classes to the lineup for 2018. Stay tuned for the official lineup due in May for our new amenities like Essentially Elevated and plant-based cooking classes.
Mary Jane Massage
Ask anyone from the previous years about this amenity and I guarantee you'll sign up. This 30 minute massage by our bodywork specialist will definitely take the edge off. For the past two years he has made the hugest difference to give pain relief through accupressure and topical oils. We are excited to have him returning for a third year to provide us all with that special touch. (Included in VIP Packages. Available a la carte)
It's LIT on the camp grounds this year with HIO. We are most excited that this year, all of our ticket passes are for TWO FULL DAYS of elevated bliss. We want you to stay and reap all of the amazing benefits of these tickets, so bring a sleeping bag and a tent and let's camp under the starry night sky! Get elevated as much as you want, knowing that you have a secure and safe space to crash at the end of the night. With outdoor showers and bathrooms at your disposal (which is more than a lot of these festivals can say) we are happy to have you!
With events and features getting added everyday, it feels a bit premature to hit you with the FULL LINEUP! Check back by May and get the full lineup of vendors, events, brands, musical guests, and much more!
