Oman Wellness Retreat
March 17-19, 2023
Welcome to an adventurous retreat
How does healing yourself through the element of nature and stepping out of your comfort zone sound to you?
If you are looking for a spiritual challenge then this journey is for you. You will leave this retreat with so much more self confidence, inner growth and a new love and respect for nature!
So what are you waiting for?
Get your adrenaline pumping and join us on a journey where you will disconnect from city life and be surrounded by the most scenic mountains, get your adventurous side out as you will walk out of your comfort zone through the abseiling snake canyon experience, meet amazing new friends through spiritual connection, and explore the historic side of Oman.
When you face a fear or shove yourself beyond your comfort zone; you are in fact fighting against yourself, for yourself. You are fighting that voice that says you cannot, for the heart that knows you can. In that process, there is growth that cannot be put into words.
Nature is the greatest teacher of all. It teaches us not to fixate on our goals but to focus on the present steps instead. It teaches us to accept that things cannot and will not always be within our control, that the world does not revolve around us; it teaches us to let go of the things that are beyond our control and to focus on those that are. There are countless more lessons that you will learn and that we will all share together over a delicious meal, around a bonfire, in the middle of the mighty mountains amongst like-minded women!

We’ll have lunch at a restaurant in Muscat before making our way back to Abu Dhabi to arrive before 10 pm. Then we grab take away dinner and make out way back home safely!
Snake canyon is the perfect combination of abseiling, cliff diving, rock sliding, canyoning and hiking. This 6–7 hour adventure will get your heart pumping and adrenaline racing all while in a safe and comfortable setting. So what is abseiling? Abseiling is the act of lowering yourself into the canyon using a double rope that’s anchored at the top of the rocks. Although it may seem thrilling, it is one of the safest techniques in climbing, and requires no technical skill or previous experience. You will have the choice to lower yourself, controlling your own speed; or asking one of the Grasp The Adventure team to lower you slowly. Besides abseiling from edges over 25 meters high, we will also have opportunities to cliff dive off 7-meter edges. Of course, the option to climb down instead is always available… but we highly recommend that you attempt to face your fears! The rest of the adventure takes us swimming in narrow gorges and through incredible caves. Although it does not require any technical experience, 7 hours of hiking and swimming can get very exhausting. Therefore, this trail is recommended for those with moderate fitness levels and who are generally active.
Meet your Lightworker
This retreat will be hosted by the founder of Inner Seed, Laura-Helene Kopinski who is our Senior yoga teacher and very much loved by the Adventure Yogi guests. She is incredibly passionate about the many benefits of living a yogic lifestyle, physically, mentally, and spiritually. She takes you on a journey that will release, soften and inspire your soul. She aims an inviting practice for everyone and encourages to explore new boundaries.
Laura is a lightworker that aims to bring out that inner strength and empowerment to women. She is also a Reiki Master healer and a therapeutic Life Coach that guides adults and children on how to grow and improve in their lives. Her power is her care and love.
“I am here to educate and support women to achieve their greatness. I believe, we as women have the strength to change our mindset, I believe that we need to find our inner power and deliver our gifts to the world. Help women make better choices and become present. I am here to support and help release behavior that hold you from being your truest self and from doing the things you are meant to share with the world”
Your wellness program has been personalized with a theme that will help you dive inwards, understand more of who you are and empower you to make better and healthier decisions for yourself. This program offers the opportunity to rewire your mind and reconnect with your body.
Your journey in nature
If you have never camped before, then this is your chance to experience an outdoors adventure! Camping is a great chance for us to fully unplug and get away from our usual " comfort" available. You can’t help but develop new skills while camping. Everyone on the trip will contribute and it’s a great chance to learn new things. These skills are important to have, and yet we don’t often get a chance to develop them during the course of our regular busy schedules. And most importantly, you WILL have fun!
Full board meals included:
Breakfast, lunch and dinner provided in listed itinerary schedule.
Grasp the adventure will also be serving their signature BBQ on day 2! We all LOVE that meal!
Vegetarian/vegan & gluten free option are available.
"I thought the retreat was amazing. I could not fault anything. I think you all work so hard to make our experience so enjoyable. I feel so lucky that i found inner seed and that Laura is in my life. I love spending time with all of you.
I have not fully over come my fear of camping but i have made amazing progress. I have never told anyone about why i have this phobia. I found it so hard and felt really uncomfortable speaking about my fears. However i am so glad i did as it can only have positive benefits. George was amazing and worked so hard. He is so enthusiastic and full of life. Both Laura and George made this trip amazing. Thank you so.much for everything. I loved every moment."
"This was an incredible life learning lesson. The way Laura addressed healing topics and how considerate she was with our feelings felt very safe.
Being in nature helped me open my mind to a lot of my negative thoughts."
Laura and George made me feel like I was normal. Their passion and care is well shown. Great team work.
I want to thank the both from the bottom of my heart and I look forward to the next retreat.
"Laura, thank you so much for an amazing weekend. I feel so lucky and blessed to find your group. I love our time time away with the girls. I feel it is life changing. Thank u so much for all your love and support. You really are amazing. Have a beautiful day x"
"The journey from the beginning to the end was well organized and very smooth along with the flexibility given.
Combining hiking and wellness to connect with nature were well conveyed and such deep conversations and questions made it easier to connect with each other.
The consideration to our lady needs / nature call were very much appreciated with also the gentle encouragement to be comfortable in nature fully.
Loved visiting Oman for the first time with this group and getting to hike there. Honestly visiting Oman was never in my radar or list of places to hike either. I am grateful that I joined - thanks for notifying me about it
Also, recommendations, remarks and comments are always welcome to help us improve.
The only thing I would like to address is that on day two it was a bit difficult to fully enjoy the mesmerizing view of the Snake Canyon due to being already tired from the Jabal Shams hike and the cold, plus not having enough / good night sleep. So it felt like I was having an enough share of being challenged in the mountains that I wasn’t really having fun with it somehow.
Would suggest having in day two a more chilling and relaxed outing either in a farm or the village and connect with the local people there. Maybe having a farm experience (harvesting etc)"
