Courtney founded Outrun Gravity in 2019 and is a certified personal trainer, life coach, group fitness instructor, and philanthropist with over 17 years of experience in the industry. His passion for seeking meaningful experiences was sparked by a cruise vacation trip where he found himself surrounded by unhealthy options and limited social connections that left him feeling unclear, lethargic, and guilty. These feelings created a desire to promote health, wellness, and community, which are the core values of this Retreat.
Cassanie’s yoga journey began on a quest to a Mexican yoga surfing camp that instead ended on a trip to the Sivananda Yoga Ashram on Paradise Island in the Bahamas in 2006, where she completed 200 hours of Yoga teacher training. She has been teaching consistently ever since! Over the years, Cassanie has added other modalities to her toolbox of healing, offering expertise in the fields of meditation, Mat Pilates 1, Tarot, and Nutritional coaching.
Arrive at Sangster International airport where your guide, a member of our local team, will be waiting to escort you the 25-minute ride to Silent Waters Villa. Once you’ve settled in, you’ll get a tour of the property and get a taste of the beautiful land you will get to know over the few days. Before dinner, everyone will get to meet each other during a 30-minute slow yoga session where we will stretch and reset the body after a long day of travel. Following yoga, we will refuel our bodies with a healthy dinner prepared and served by our own private chefs.
Rise and rejuvenate as we take a lively start to the day with a 30-minute bodyweight strength and conditioning class followed by 30 minutes of restorative yoga. A healthy breakfast will be available after, and then you are free to spend the day exploring Montego Bay, playing tennis, golfing, going on an excursion, or relaxing on the property. In the evening we will offer a mindset workshop to work on visualizing goals before eating dinner.
Following breakfast, we will spend the morning giving back to the community as we team up with Farm up Jamaica, so be prepared to get your hands dirty and do a little sweating during this 2-hour experience. Here, we will learn about sustainable agriculture and farming in Jamaica and its economic impact on the country. Following the excursion, you are again free to explore Montego Bay however you choose. In the evening, we will engage in a guided meditation followed by a vision and goals workshop before dinner.
Today, we embrace self-care and reconnect with our core self as we begin the day with a 40-minute bodyweight class exploring animal flow movements. Focusing on mobility and the mind-to-body connection, we will use this time as an opportunity to set intentions and challenges for ourselves. Following breakfast, you’ll have plenty of time to explore, hit the beach, go sightseeing, or relax! In the evening we will reconvene for a community gathering filled with live music, dance, a drum circle, and overwhelming energy of gratitude and love. During this ceremony we will reflect on the past few days of the retreat and the tools that can be carried home with us.
Today we depart our return flight home, so we will have a leisurely morning with time to enjoy breakfast and take a last walk along the white sand beach before boarding the vehicle to be escorted back to the airport.

Supporting Jamaican Farmers
Join us as we team up with Farm up Jamaica to plant crops and get educated on the agricultural industry in Jamaica. We will work alongside Jamaican farmers to discover ways to create sustainable growth to improve Jamaican communities. Experience the most natural way to get a workout on the land - farming is the best way to get functional training! It's an unforgettable educational experience followed by a meal from crops on the farm.
The retreat was so good for my soul, mentally and physically. The workouts were fun, challenging and I liked that a person of any level of fitness could participate. The hike was something I had never done before -- it took me out of my comfort zone, but I was proud that I accomplished it. We've all been cooped inside during COVID and the winter - so being able to be outside on a great day was such a bonus. I also met some amazing people during the hike who also enjoy working out and being challenged.
