Hosted by Better Beings & Kauai Adventure Fitness
Tucked away on Kauai’s North Shore, Anini Beach is the perfect spot for optimizing wellness. Whether you need to disconnect, reconnect, rejuvenate or invigorate, this boutique wellness retreat will be a truly unique experience. You will spend 1 week exploring various aspects of physical, mental and emotional wellness. Your daily excursion, led by a Kauai native Bear Bailey Bubnis, will allow you to see and experience Kauai like no other. Join us for a week that could truly be life changing!
Here is a sampling of what your week will entail!
Kapa'a Bike Path
The Ke Ala Hele Makalae Kapaa bike path starts at Lihi Park in Kapaa and follows the coast north, ending at Ahihi Point, just past Donkey Beach. This incredible path meanders along the ocean for several miles with great views of the Pacific.
Kalihiwai River Stand Up Paddle
Stand up paddling is a gentle, peaceful way to cruise down a river. Bear will instruct and guide the group as you enjoy the beautiful, lush valley scenery. Take time to reflect in solitude or use this opportunity to tap into all the amazing insight Bear has to offer.
While it is a relatively sort distance, the mud, steep climb, and rope assists make this a challenging hike. Bear will guide you every step of the way. As you work together to navigate the trail, Bear will enlighten, encourage and inspire you.
You will get scratched by vegetation, and bitten by bugs. It will be muddy and slick and you will most likely fall once or twice. Why would you put yourself through all of that? Because the stunning views atop are worth it---as is your sense of accomplishment!
Hidden and Secret spots only the locals know. You will be introduced to various forms of yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and other mind-body practices.
Meet the Leaders of the Kauai Wellness Retreat
|Michelle Zellner - Founder and Owner of Better Beings
Even though I am not local, from my very first visit to Hawaii at 8 years old, I felt a connection to the culture and environment of Hawaii. As an 8 year old, being in Hawaii made total sense, like I was coming home. That feeling has never gone away, and I am convinced that my spirit has always resided somewhere in the islands. When I finally had the opportunity to live in Hawaii by attending UH-Manoa, I truly felt at home around my local friends. Reality set in after I graduated, and moving back to the mainland was the path I took. I have been fortunate enough to come back every year, and now, the opportunity to bridge the passion of my profession, with my love and connection to the Islands is very exciting to me. I look forward to bringing you into this world to experience all we have to offer.

Growing up on the North Shore, I have gained a deep appreciation and connection to this place. I spent my childhood surfing and competing, and eventually ventured in to Mixed Martial Arts practice. I now get to share my knowledge and experiences with others. I take great pride in personalizing the experiences to energize your body and mind. It is the lifestyle, the place, and the people that inspire me.
