Shawn Rodine

Shawn's love and longing to be around water started at a very young age. His passion for water has taken him many places as a river guide, kayaker, fly fisher, triathlete, and scuba diver. He discovered SUP ten years ago and fell in love instantly as it is the perfect way to discover new bodies of water, get a total body workout, and become grounded while finding peace and balance. Most importantly, SUP allows you to capture that aloha spirit even when the ocean is far from sight. In 2012, Shawn’s passion for SUP and building community led him to found and establish Rocky Mountain Paddleboard.

      It was just a great experience. I came with an open mind and the theme / content of the week opened up doors I didn’t know would have been opened otherwise.

      My experience with Bella retreats was the perfect reset button in the middle of winter. I am inspired to live more creatively and to see the world in new ways. The week was nourishing to my body and my soul and I got in touch with the importance of slowing down and operating with an open heart. Muse.

      Una is an amazing facilitator, organizer and yoga instructor. She has a gift for partnering the perfect people for the perfect experience. Laura Dawn has an unparalleled understanding of how to and compliment flavors and textures. Her cuisine was the most beautiful food Ive had in a very long time. Autumn Skye, I am speechless. I have never been in the presence of a more beautiful, loving, compassionate and talented woman. I truly enjoyed the way she sees the world and her ability to translate it and communicate about it. Her voice, humor, grace and poise are an inspiration and I havent even gotten to her artistic skill yet. I arrived a beginner painter and in one week I feel that I have learned how to see the world with new eyes. Her instruction was concise and easy to understand and her command of the materials is awe inspiring. I am so grateful for the experience. It was well worth the fee. I hugely recommend this retreat and will be coming back next year. I loved everything!

      The name is fitting - Bella, such a beautiful experience. I was incredibly inspired and enriched on a daily basis. Every activity was magic! The people who attended were such kind and supportive ladies, bonds were unavoidable. Una is light, patient, funny and so full of spirit! If you are reading this, wondering if you should commit, dont waver! Do it!! This is a gift to yourself that you will keep forever.

      What an amazing opportunity. the whole self is nurtured through this retreat. Una and Laura assist with bringing the physical body into clarity and balance through yoga and fresh, live food. Assistance on the physical level really helped with my level of creativity and feeling good in my body. Autumn Skye is such a gem. her natural ability to support the paths of others is what makes her instruction really shine. Clear concise, instructions with a sense of humor really make learning from Skye such a pleasure. What a complete honor this retreat was for me. Mahalo nui loa.

      My husband and I had an incredible time at the Kindness Yoga Retreat--relaxing, restorative, inspiring, healthy and complete with an extraordinary community of hear-centered people. Una was a fabulous planner and took care of every detail.

    • Lisa

      BookYogaRetreats website

      I think that a NS/Yoga retreat like this will be a life changing experience for me. I could feel the magic of the lake and thank Lisa and Una for making it possible.

      The name of the retreat as spot on. I would have never realized what my hang ups were without this curriculum. So many aha moments while writing things down on paper and then getting the chance to meditate and incorporate them. Wonderful!!

      Brad and Mia's retreat was wonderful, providing just the right balance of stretch and education. They made every session unique, and made sure each attendee felt welcome. I couldn't sing their praises more. Can't wait for my next retreat!.

      Wendy Pabich is one of the rare speakers who is both scientist and artist. The artist side gives her the ability to connect with audiences of all knowledge levels without sacrificing scientific rigor. She is a wonderful speaker and can make water issues come alive.

    • Jennie Lay

      Bella Retreats website

      Wendy Pabich is a brilliant combination of scientist, artist, and hands-in-the-dirt bona fide mountain woman. After hearing her statistics and success story, who wouldn't be compelled to go home and rip out a lawn or two?

    • Hilary Stunda

      Bella Retreats website

      Self-deprecating, funny, smart, and exacting, Wendy demonstrates how we can all approach the daunting water crisis through thoughtful small steps of awareness, that in turn realign ourselves with a greater sense of stewardship and life purpose.

    • Bob Zimmerman

      Bella Retreats website

      Wendy Pabich brings a new and compelling voice to the issues surrounding water, its use, and our individual responsibilities to protect and sustain it. Wendy is easy and engaging as a speaker, and her presentations are clear and memorable.

      Mary Beth is truly an amazing soul, her teachings and lessons are still shaping me as a person and fellow teacher to this day.

    • Amory Millard

      Bella Retreats website

      Mary Beth, thank you so much. The Taos retreat was pitch perfect. I enjoyed every moment, thanks to your ability to work with us at all levels.

    • Katie Simpson

      Bella Retreats website

      I knew I would come into the weekend curious, a bit anxious, and mostly looking forward to what was in store. What I left with, at the end of three days of yoga, was a feeling of being refreshed, a trust that I could go back into the real world standing a bit taller in life, and lastly, a deep emotional healing. The retreat touched all my senses and emotions. Thank you, Mary Beth, for such a spiritual and inspirational weekend!

      Great time! This was our first retreat and did not know what to expect. At the end of the retreat, we were happy with our decision and would do it again. We would go to any retreat hosted by Lindsay and Una!

    • Jenni

      Bella Retreats website

      Surfing, sailing, food, all-inclusive: bargain. Loved the variety of activities offered. Loved the laid back intention. Sailing was great! This retreat offered such a unique experience. I am so grateful to have been a part of this amazing week!

    • Christine

      Bella Retreats website

      Una, your art brought me to a place that I had been forbidden to go by other people's judgment of what I should be doing. Feeling the paint in between my fingers against the board, watching magic happen right before my eyes was such a powerful sensation that it still brings me to tears thinking about it. It unleashed so much that painting, especially with my hands, strongly calls to me and experiment without anyone's judgments. I just want to say that you've made a major difference in my world and pray that I may cross paths with you soon again.

    • Ariana

      Bella Retreats website

      This retreat was such a gift. Alicia, Una, and Imagika made an extremely potent team of visionaries with a unique and diverse array of offerings that nurture mind, body, and spirit simultaneously. I was humbled, encouraged, inspired, and uplifted with the powerful women that offered their heart and soul with genuine love. I look forward to returning to this retreat every year.

    • Kelly

      Bella Retreats website

      I wanted to thank you so much for everything! Thanks for the inspiring talks and classes. Thanks for listening and sharing. Thank you for teaching me so many things over the week on and off the mat. It was an incredibly special event in my life, I will remember you always!

    • Denise

      I attended a retreat in Costa Rica facilitated in part by Katrina of Karma Yoga Center and I'm hooked. She's incredible! Can't wait for more.

    • Darryl

      Bella Retreats website

      Thank you Unaji, for so kindly helping Judith and I navigate every step of the way through the logistics of our trip to the Goddess Gardens. We would have been lost without you! We were both impressed with your artistic and yoga teaching talents, probably for different reasons, but that just illustrates what an amazing person and teacher you are. Thank you again for presenting the best yoga retreat I have ever been on.

    • Lindsey

      Bella Retreats website

      I so enjoyed this retreat! The chakras theme is clever as it lends itself to a day-by-day focus on each chakras. Katrina has a magnetic energy I was immediately drawn to - I probably do not fit the typical yogi mold but she was open and interested in my life. I so appreciate that she made a personal connection with all of us. I learned a great deal from her and now view yoga from a new lens, knowing it is not just about a mind, body connection, but also mind, body, and spirit. Despite the touch-and-go weather, she always had a great attitude. She also really cared about whether we were enjoying ourselves and if we wanted to do any side activities, or change up the schedule. Thank you so much for a great week! Please let me know of any other retreats on the horizon!

    • Kaylie Finnis United States

      Bella Retreats website

      When I arrived at Mag Rock and first headed down the stone steps to the ocean I felt completely off balance. By the end of the week, I was running up and down them barefoot two at a time, feeling totally grounded, yet light on my toes. I've never felt stronger or healthier in my life after these seven amazing days! It is nice to go on a vacation with a group of friends, but going on a retreat with Lindsay and Una was a completely different and life changing experience.

    • John Valentine

      Bella Retreats website

      My first out of county yoga retreat. I was not sure what to expect, especially since travelling by myself. But the whole event was far beyond my expectations. Tried it all!

    • Emmy

      What a relaxing and invigorating retreat in Mexico! The location, flexibility of the retreat leader and instructors, quality of instruction, and friendship was superb. Unforgettable and transformative week - thank you!

    • Aluna

      Bella Retreats website

      Una is an amazing organizer, leader, and friend. The trip was enlightening, fun, flexible, and something will never forget. I would recommend Bella Retreats to anyone open to building new friendships, gaining inner wisdom, and creating unforgettable memories

    • Kim United States

      Bella Retreats website

      I appreciate and adore Katie’s ability to translate and provide the teachings of Tantra in an accessible and digestible way. I have been studying this material for two years and sitting and practicing with Katie for one week literally brought the teachings to life. I not only learn in a way that seeps into my pores but I experience the teachings when with her in a way that is powerful and impactful.

    • Robin United States

      Bella Retreats website

      Training with Katie has allowed me to be more mindful. She has given me real tools to work with on all levels, to really peel through the subtle layers to be the most grounded and authentically happy person that I can be. Through diet, asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation, and helping to identify what holds me back and helping me break old patterns, Katie has provided a clarity and a sense of empowerment.

    • Lila Heller United States

      Bella Retreats website

      Katie is a brilliant teacher, knowledgeable, real, spiritual, and approachable. I have gained and re-learned the love that is within me. Thank you.
