Each day at the http://OBXSpringRetreat.com we shall observe the five elements within the human body.
Everyday in our lives, we nourish ourselves with foods from the Earth, and eventually, our body returns to the earthly matter from which it came.
Life sustaining nectar, water makes up more than 70 percent of our total body mass. Fire provides the body with heat and radiant energy and exists within all metabolic and chemical actions. Air flows freely throughout the body, giving movement to biological functions and feeding every cell with oxygen. Space is ever-present, humbly residing in the background, providing the other elements with an opportunity to interact in this way.
Each Day at the Retreat has an Element that is explored and celebrated through delicious cuisine, yoga, art and activities.

One of the magnificent activities we will enjoy at the OBX Spring Retreat is to enjoy and learn how to Stand Up Paddle Board. Everyone can do it! We want to challenge your boundaries with beauty and the feeling of using your whole body in action. The thrill of SUP through a spectacular natural wonderland.
Between the villages of Duck and Corolla is the pristine marsh of the Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary. Miles of secluded water trails make this arguably the most intricate marsh maze on the Outer Banks (8 square miles). The National Audubon Society has preserved a piece of the Outer Banks as it was before man arrived. In their goal to save wildlife habitat they have also created a paddle boarder’s dream. One of the unique features of this tour is the solitude you will experience. Coastal Kayak has partnered with the National Audubon Society to offer this exclusive tour of one of the Outer Banks least traveled and most sought after wildlife sanctuaries. The tour starts with a 10 minute walk down the Audubon trail to the location of our paddle boards. From here your guide will lead you into the maze of islands through which only he or she knows the way.
Why SUP? We really want to teach you this amazing way to transport yourself over a body of water. There is such freedom involved in standing aboard the water.
SUPs allow you to explore rivers, lakes, creeks, ponds and coastlines from a different vantage point and they give you a great workout too while you are at it. You really can SUP on any kind a flat waterway as long as it is safe.You should not have a problem finding a flat waterway to get your paddle board on since most cities are founded on a waterway. Paddle boarding can also get you out on the water at breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Using a gopro while you are boarding will get you spectacular footage.

The food you put in your body is not only the fuel for activity but it’s ultimately the building blocks of your cells, so it’s literally true, you actually are what you eat. Unfortunately the typical American diet isn’t very nutritious. Most meals consist of overly refined, nutrient sparse, additive laden food.This is one of the primary reasons so many people are sick and tired all the time. Clean eating is the opposite. At it’s core it’s the concept of eating whole, unprocessed, “natural” food. The fewer steps food takes from its original form to your table the better. Once you’ve started to eat clean you’ll experience some amazing things
