What you can expect...

Arriving into Male, the main island of Maldives, and get ready for…

Starting your days with sunrise meditations and gentle morning yoga stretching on the sundeck, with expansive sweeping views of the 99% sea nation and its endless islands. 

Fueling up on breakfast before disembarking for daily land and sea adventures on different islands and beaches. Snorkeling anytime is always an option, and if you like to add-on more sea adventures, you can scuba dive, surf, kayak, or standup paddleboard! 

What better way to experience the dreamy gifts this corner of the world can offer than to dip into the silky waters and get a chance to peek at the unreal underwater scene with chances to spot dolphins, sharks, mantas, and endless vibrant fish?

And on top of all that...

As a special touch of nature’s best, we’ll even spend a day on our own “deserted island” white sandbank, complete with a picnic and if the tide allows, time under the stars!

Expect the invitation to join daily meditation and yoga, reflection and journaling, inquiry and dreaming, belly laughs and life talks, and so much more! 

This will be the tranquil backdrop of our adventure together with other free-spirited and fun-loving souls like yourself. 

Everything is designed so that you can re-envision what makes you come alive and enjoy the life you’re meant to live!

I had a few light bulb moments in areas I was struggling with in my own life. Cynthia’s retreats make me realize what it’s like to have adventure in your life. That was the biggest eye opener – I want to continue moving. I don’t want to be stagnant. If you’re looking for a really great time or after something different outside of your comfort zone, I highly recommend Cynthia!

Our moving home...

We will live and sail the Maldives on the 92-foot award winning liveaboard yacht. The boat is outfitted with 10 comfortable cabins for 2, each with air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom with hot water.  There’s plenty of space to mingle with your new friends or retreat to yourself in your room, the spacious sundeck, or common areas. 

On-ship activities include meditation and gentle yoga on the sundeck, international cuisine prepared by our boat’s chef, drinks at the bar (available in Maldives only at resorts and boat-bars), with plenty of time for sunbathing, wellness chats, storytime, and evenings after dinner on the “moondeck”!

We’ll be in great hands, as our captains are experienced fisherman who developed their love and knowledge of these waters for over 20 years. Our boat also won “Best Fishing Safari” and “Liveaboard Captain of the Year” awards at the Maldives Boating Awards 2017!

So, why a Liveaboard in Maldives?

Having traveled 70 countries and living around the world, Cynthia’s picked up a bit of an intuition for identifying spaces with tranquil, yet powerful vibes. Where the land and mother nature nurtures powerful group journeys, elevating transformation group wellness retreats to its greatest potential.

No better spot than under this vast open sky, white sand, turquoise waters, twinkling stars, and magic all around. Get ready for inspired interactions, nature-inspired adventures, and compelling stories!

Not convinced? You’ll just have to join us this summer to experience the magic yourself!

I recommend Cynthia’s retreat to everyone! Not just a vacation, it’s really a whole transformation of thinking outside of your lens. This retreat is for anyone who needs to widen their perspective in an encouraging place. This is exactly where you will find it.”

Any outstanding payment is due by April 10th. 

We offer a payment plan option after the deposit is made, please contact Cynthia for more details.

The early bird is our discount! And if you are a frontline worker, a healthcare personnel, or a teacher, please let us know. We would love to offer you a discount as a special thank you for all your courage, care, and compassion you have contributed (and still are) during the pandemic. We appreciate you 🙂

Due to the ongoing global health crisis, our cancellation policy is flexible and outlined below: 

  • Up to 100 days before arrival: free cancellation and return of deposit, minus a $200 admin fee, up to April 10th. 
  • No refund 100 days or less, April 10th or after.

  • However, your spot is is 100% transferrable to another attendee if you are no longer able to make it. The original attendee is responsible for finding their replacement, and will connect him/her to Cynthia who holds the decision to confirm the replacement. 

If you unfortunately test positive for covid prior to the retreat, or have to remain home last minute to be a caretaker for a family member, we can transfer the amount of the retreat payment towards another retreat with Cynthia, valid up to 2 years. Any difference in fees will apply.

  • All hosts and attendees will be required to take a covid test prior to arrival.
  • Everyone will be required to maintain safe covid protocol from the time of their covid test prior to arrival, in transit and during the retreat.

  • Cynthia will not be giving any hands-on adjustments during yoga, but will continue to cue adjustments and modifications verbally and demonstrate visually.
  • All attendees will practice safe measures before, during, and after our retreat together.
All tourists receive a free 30-day visa. As of March 2022, Maldives removed its PCR test requirement for vaccinated travelers. Only an online health form completed within 48 hours before departure is needed. We will have extra at-home kids on hand, and it’s likely we’ll request everyone to take a covid test of some kind prior to flying so we have a greater sense of ease from the get-go among our group!
If you need a test to leave Maldives, PCR testing is readily available in all islands. We can arrange this for you, with costs ranging from $40-$100 with results in 6-24 hours. For Americans, many airlines will accept a 15-minute telehealth online at-home covid negative test result.
