Which is helping them spread the gospel of yoga and massage.
Three months ago, they opened Mission Beach Yoga By Retreats to Go at 3788 Mission Blvd. in Mission Beach, combining both their disciplines into a new, stimulating yoga experience.
“We created a restorative yoga practice, and Anne does a hands-on massage technique during the yoga,” said Accomazzo.
“We use essential oils and help adjust them,” said Kuhn adding, “We’re passionate about wellness and keeping our kids healthy, ourselves healthy, our husbands healthy, etc. It’s a difficult thing to do.”
The pair were introduced by their high school daughters about five years ago.
“Daphinne was a yoga instructor and I’ve been a massage therapist for a long time and we started working together,” said Kuhn. “We thought, ‘How can we combine our services and make this community a better place?’ So we started Retreats To Go.”
Currently, the only Mission Beach yoga studio, Retreats To Go offers innovative yoga styles such as stand up paddleboard yoga, aerial yoga, wall yoga, and beach yoga. Their business also does reiki, tai chi and yoga sculpt utilizing weights. They cater to restorative practices but accommodates all fitness levels.
The hybrid business offers classes and instruction indoors and out with retreats in the field, on the beach, and in the ocean. They cater to private parties including bachelorette and mom groups while facilitating team bonding and corporate wellness. The design day retreats are perfect for vacationers in the Mission Beach area, who are offered special packages.
“Our tag lines are sea, land, and air,” noted Kuhn of their motto. “We have land in the studio, sea is our paddleboard classes on the bay, then air is our yoga wall and aerial (hanging from straps).”
Youth are a major focus for both women in their wellness practice.
“We started out working with teams from Point Loma High School,” said Kuhn. “Our passion is to work with the student population. We love these kids and we want them to have a safe place to unwind and get some skills. We think this little, neighborhood studio can bring so much peace to these kids.”
Accomozzo concurred that their catering to students helps “with the college pressure, their (college admission) ACTs and everything that they have to do, including competing with each other and building their resumes so that they can get into college.”
“We work with several different vacation rentals in the area to serve travelers,” said Accomozzo about yet another aspect of their business.
Patrons can join up for monthly memberships or pay by the class at Mission Beach Yoga.
“It’s a safe place and we want it to be a hangout,” concluded Kuhn. “There’s something for everybody.”
