Bliss Out & Renew

About This Event


I know the feeling…

You set wellness goals such as committing to a new diet on Monday, or signing up for a bunch of gym classes. You start strong, and you’re hopeful that this new diet or exercise program will be the fix you’re looking for. But it’s only a matter of time before you’re back to your old ways. You fall off the healthy eating wagon, and you just can’t drum up the motivation for that next workout. And what about that daily meditation you committed to on New Year’s Eve?

You wish it were easier to stay healthy, but you’re exhausted, burned out, and haven’t got enough hours in a day.

Perhaps life’s given you a bit of a beating, and you could use a hand in getting back on track.

Maybe you’re just not feeling yourself…the self that somehow got lost in the wash of life.

Don’t despair…

The Magic Fix!

There is a magic fix… I’m not talking about a six-pack appearing over the course of a long weekend (nice, but impossible!). Nope, the magic fix I’m talking about is an inside job.

And this is exactly where we begin your transformational journey on your Bliss Out & Renew Retreat. We’re going to create a healing space for you to go deep within, to uncover, discover and discard what you no longer need in your life. Clearing your “inner closet” is the first step in allowing the joy and abundance to flow in.

I’m Sophie Uliano, and I’m excited to spend time with you in one of the most beautiful settings I can think of. And it’s my honor to become part of your wellness journey.

I’m a New York Times bestselling author, board certified nutritionist, yoga instructor, and health coach. I created the Bliss Out and Renew Retreat for busy women who have put themselves last on their to-do list for waaaaay too long.

Terranea is my favorite luxury Cali destination… think sunshine, salty air, crashing waves, butterfly gardens, luxurious robes and the whole nine. It’s the perfect setting for healing, and letting go of the thought patterns and beliefs that keep you stuck in your old rut. You’re about to rewrite the script of your future dream life – gorgeous journals provided.

The Bliss Out & Renew holistic retreat combines exploration workshops, healing circles, yoga, pilates, nutritional advice, and meditation.

But the retreat doesn’t end when you leave. My intention is for every attendee to leave with a “toolbox” of real-world practices, tips and resources that you can implement at home!

My wellness retreats are all about bonding. There’s nothing more powerful than a group of women coming together to elevate each other. Bring along your bestie, your Mom, your sister, or your daughter for an unforgettable experience. And if you decide to fly solo, you’ll be welcomed with open arms.

And just in case you’re concerned that you need to have a hot yoga practice, a skinny bikini, and knowledge of which adaptogens to put in your smoothie, you don’t!!! You’re welcome if you’ve never even set foot on a yoga mat in your life. Designer sunglasses not required. This is a practical retreat for real women. So pack your sweats, swimsuit, sunscreen, and the real you warts n all… and I’ll do the same!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health.
