Sunrise yoga / mindfulness :: Kristin Martino (RYT 500)
SATURDAY | SUNDAY MORNINGS
It was through her mom’s diagnosis with breast cancer that Kristin discovered a way to incorporate eastern medicine, nutrition and mental health practices that would ease the grueling side effects and keep her spirits lifted.
She earned a degree in Public Health and received her certification as a RYT 500. “My core belief when guiding others on their yogic journey is to find breath first, and only move in a way that honors that breath. When we find breath in the body, we find stillness in the mind. And when we find stillness in the mind, we are able to connect with out highest and truest Self. That connection is the true essence and beauty of yoga.”
As the retreat’s resident yogi, Kristin’s deepest desire is to help each and every student feel comfortable, respected and whole-heartedly welcome so they can continue their journey.
Craft cocktail workshops :: Arianna Hone, Woman Crush Wednesday
FRIDAY | SATURDAY EVENINGS
Our resident mixologist, Arianna Hone’s love affair with craft cocktail bartending began when she lived on Kauai and would get “Pau Hana,” (the Hawaiian term for after-work) drinks. “I loved the abundance of fresh juices, herbs, and shrubs that would go into the drinks, and the precision the bartender had while making them – all while carrying on a conversation.” After two years on Kauai, she moved back to Salt Lake City and was determined to recreate the amazing island hospitality she had grown to love. Since then she has become a finalist in international bartending competitions, apprenticed under the best names in the industry, and created her own traveling bar event: Women Crush Wednesday, which creates a community for womxn in the bar industry while raising funds for local non-profits focused on helping womxn and marginalized groups. She has worked behind the bar at Tinwell, Post Office Place, Quarters Arcade Bar, and High West, and worked with major brands such as Rabbit Hole Whiskey and Jose Cuervo Tequila.

Jill’s experience informs and influences her practice….and her verve for life will inspire and entertain you (just wait ’til you hear her signature giggle/snort!)
With her Masters degree in Art Therapy at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, BS in Women’s Studies and BS in Communications, (pre-law), Jill works in a holistic fashion, offering a combination of expressive therapies with traditional talk therapy, creative exploration, outdoor and narrative therapies. Her ongoing goal is to provide a safe space to explore and assist clientele in discovering their voice and expressive nature.
She will guide integrative creative art moments throughout that evoke a deep connection to nature around us, and teaches us how to access the CREATIVITY that exists within each of us.
Fitness in the wild :: Al Hahn, Maven Strong
FRIDAY |SATURDAY AFTERNOONS
As the retreat’s resident fitness junkie and mountain enthusiast, and ambassador of Maven Strong, Al has always been active throughout her life. Starting at the young age of five, she was participating in multiple sports such as skiing, softball, soccer, and gymnastics. “Being physically active was naturally a part of who I am as a person. I was able to accomplish becoming a Junior Olympian for downhill skiing at 16 years old, and walk onto a Division 1 Track and Field team (high jump) for the University of Nevada Reno.”
As an instructor at Maven Strong, Al teaches strength, HIIT, and pilates, and in Moab, she’ll be integrating movement and mindfulness in ways that stretch not only our bodies, but our minds and spirits, too. “As I got older I realized that physical fitness is just one part of it all. I have since then dedicated my time to understanding how to give you the experience you deserve when working out. Physically, mentally, and environmentally. I look forward to sweating with you.”
