Petite RE:treat, Customized Wellness Packages For You
For sure, Albert Roer has an impressive resumé: Telluride Properties‘ managing partner, plus owner/partner, Telluride Yoga Center, Telluride Yoga Festival and WOW Fest. But is he also the smartest guy around? Or does it just look that way? There Albert was Down-Dogging-it in a room full of beauties, the only man on a mat. I mean guys, does it make sense to choose a crowded bar over, say, a Petite RE: treat sampler of yoga, massage and fab food?
Let’s all get with the program.
In a country with some 20 million people practicing yoga, everyone from elite athletes to schoolchildren, yoga is a story of assimilation to commodification. There are now such things as circus yoga, nude yoga, pre-and post-natal yoga, acro (as in acrobatics) yoga, hot yoga, power yoga, Christian yoga, classes that incorporate the use of marijuana, hip-hop yoga, even yoga for dogs.
Petite RE:treat is the latest gimmick-free, yoga-centric venture from the lovely ladies at RE: treat.
What’s RE:treat? It is a relatively new, Telluride-based yoga-inspired lifestyle adventure company offering first-class outings (or retreats) in the mountains of Telluride and similar locales abroad. The company’s tagline says it all: “Elevated lifestyle adventures.” The founders of RE:treat – Babsi Glanznig, Nicole Nugent, and Georgie Bishop – hail from three different continents, America, Austria and Australia, but the ties that bind are yoga, travel, food, and mountain sports. The programs the threesome offers through RE:treats in America and Europe naturally reflect their shared passions: Ashtanga, Forrest and restorative yoga practices, skiing, hiking, wellness advice, massage, and local taste treats.
Your schedule does not allow for a week-long break? Cue Petite RE:treat.
Petite RE: treat is a wellness offering that puts the “hatha” in hospitality.
“We know not everyone has time for a week-long RE:treat yoga vacation, so we wanted to come up with something that caters to those who have already booked a Telluride vacation and crave some healthy, off-mountain enhancements,” or anyone, locals included, who might want to experience something different for a change to share with family or friends,” explains Bishop.
Petite RE:treat is a collaboration between two Telluride businesses: RE:treat + Rabbit Rabbit. The idea is to offer mini intensives that can include private yoga classes for individuals and/or a small group; delicious, locally sourced organic food; and massage – all of which, sequence to scones, we got to enjoy last week at the aforementioned Petite RE:treat invitational at the Ah Haa School for the Arts.
In addition to the partners, the RE:treat and Petite RE:treat team includes Naani Sheva, a newly minted, deeply trained Forrest Yoga teacher; Fran Headley, a license orthopedic massage therapist and owner of Apres Healing Massage, Telluride; and Lucy Perutz, the innovative young chef who created Rabbit Rabbit and is determined to turn people on to social change through food.
Petite RE:Treat possibilities include RE:Fresh, which includes AM Yoga and brunch: RE:Cover, PM Yoga, massage and apres snacks; and RE:Store, PM Yoga, massage and dinner.
“Petite RE:treat evolved very spontaneously one day over coffee with Lucy Perutz, founder of Rabbit Rabbit. Lucy had already worked with us, cooking for our RE:treat guests with great success. But as it turned out, she was looking for her next adventure. In a blink of an eye we decided to collaborate on delivering mini wellness packages. Petite RE:treat draws from Telluride’s very deep well of wellness professionals like Naani, Fran and Lucy of course to create a custom-tailored experience for anyone who appreciates a juicy yoga practice, an intense massage and mouth-watering, healthy food. And these days, isn’t that everyone who lives in or visits our mountains?”
But should you have extended leisure time in your future for more than a Petite RE:treat and want to plan ahead for a longer escape, below is the list of upcoming RE:treat adventures:
