R1SE Yoga Ltd's mission is simple, to help you become the best version of yourself. You are the result of millions of years of success, living in a time of unprecedented wealth, security, opportunity, information, medical, advancement, and ‘stuff’.

You really are one in a trillion, one of the luckiest people ever to be alive. So why don’t you always feel like the winners that you are? Why do you often feel unfulfilled, impatient, distant, stressed, overwhelmed, and tired? Over just a few generations the world has changed at an incredible pace.

Your life bears little resemblance to that which you were designed to thrive within and which the ancestors enjoyed for hundreds of thousands of years before you. You used to know and be known by everyone, eat a diverse, organic, and nutritious diet, spend a majority of your time in nature, toil for only a dozen or so hours per week, and sleep like kings and all of this whilst living entirely in the present.

Not worrying about pensions, mortgages, promotions, exams, information overload, and a never-ending list of other things. Sounds like bliss. So you have two options, retreat to the woods and live like a caveman or identify the secrets to abundant health, natural ecstasy, and stress-free living and then bio-hack them into your everyday life all whilst thriving in the digital age of the 2020s.

Although the R1SE Yoga Team are very serious about supporting you to become the best version of you, they are not serious about themselves and hence in typical R1SE style, there will be a strong emphasis on fun and camaraderie throughout the retreat.

So, what are the bio hacks that they will be starting to influence? Movement, meditation, nutrition, sleep, nature, and your tribe to enjoy it with.

Don’t be fooled about what you hear about a plant-based diet. The Awakened Ape Retreat leaves nothing to chance and everything to the culinary imagination. You won’t find any limp lettuce or be foraging for your food (although this could be an option!) imagine mouth-watering crunchy Thai peanut quinoa, warming spicy chili, butternut pecan wheat berry salad, jerk pasta, orange ginger sweet potatoes to name just a few of the amazing dishes you will open your taste buds up to. Let’s not forget the delish desserts from raspberry chocolate brownies, cinnamon buns to chocolate orange puddings. Yes, all plant-based and all super healthy!

You will also be having a little fun with a ready steady snack, where in small teams you will learn how to prepare easy delicious plant-based snacks in next to no time. Great for when you are on the go and want to make sure you have something tasty and healthy to hand!

They will also show you that eating a plant-based diet does not mean you have to miss out on a BBQ with flavour-packed burgers, sizzling skewers, and lots of vibrant salads and veggies. Great Food to enjoy and celebrate that feeds your mind, your body, and your soul.
