After college Scotty ventured away from his East Coast upbringing to experience the West Coast instead of diving into a more traditional career path. Along his journey, he honed his craft as a cook, working in prestigious restaurants along the California Coast while becoming an avid surfer. His love for cooking, the outdoors and snowboarding eventually brought him to Colorado where, while working for Whole Foods, his culinary interest turned profoundly toward health. He believes in cooking whole foods, ideally local and seasonal. He has received his Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through the Cornell Institute and has become one of the most prominent Personal Chefs in Manhattan and the Hamptons.
Kevyn was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico and spent her formative years between Manzanillo and Colima, Mexico (with a short stint in an actual Hotel California near Tenacatita, Mexico… long story) and eventually Paris, France. Other than Paris, she had been a West Coaster through and through. She studied Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology at CU Boulder and received her Pilates Teacher Training and Masters’ Certificates at The Pilates Center in Boulder, Colorado. Curious about the East, she moved to New York to experience life in the big city and developed a thriving Pilates business between New York City, the Hamptons, and Paris. She currently is one of the most sought after Pilates teachers in NYC and proud owner of Kevyn Zeller Pilates, located on Manhattan’s prestigious Upper East Side.
One year after having met at a wedding in Colorado, Scotty moved back out East to be with Kevyn and shortly after, their dream of running retreats came to fruition. Sublime Retreats was born with the intention of providing guests with a top of the line luxury brand of retreats held anywhere in the world, from a client’s private home to… you name it. Kevyn and Scotty strive to provide an unrivaled experience with an eye for detail that goes above and beyond.

My husband and I, well-heeled travelers both, spent 7 glorious days in Nicaragua on Kevyn and Scotty's first annual retreat and loved every minute of all of it. The yoga and pilates classes were sensitively and extremely well taught in beautiful settings. The meals were fabulous and healthy and prepared by a staff that added to the general sense of comfort, well-being and personal attention. Supplementing the classes were challenging and stunning optional hikes, a glorious boat ride for sunset drinks and beach runs on a perfect surface. The accommodations were more than adequate and attentively maintained.
The 2015 Sublime Retreat exceeded all of my expectations. The house, the food, the yoga and pilates, and the nightly beach bonfires were all amazing. Every member of the Sublime Retreats team was lovely. Within minutes of arriving at Casa Colorados, I felt like I was on vacation with a group of close friends. I have thought about that trip daily since my return and it brings me a little bit of happiness every single day. I cannot wait to do it again in 2016. Thank you, Kevyn, and Scotty for starting my year off right!
I love studying with Kevyn and Scotty – hell, I love them. So this retreat seemed like the perfect vacation. And it was. Gorgeous location (check out the sunsets and the beach that goes on forever) exceptional pilates and yoga classes (cooled by sea breezes,) challenging hikes, the most delicious food (three times a day) and heavenly massages to soothe whatever was left to soothe. Down to every last detail, Kevyn, Scotty and their team delivered. I can’t wait for the next one
Sublime Retreats was amazing and I would definitely sign up again and again. Pilates, yoga, meditation, massages, and wholesome, delicious food. The idyllic setting… Can’t be beaten. Not only was the week simply Amazing but I was able to capture the feeling and transfer the idyllic feeling back home. Stressed back in NYC I just close my eyes and breathe deep and recall the serene calm of Nicaragua and Sublime Retreats.
A sublime experience. Everything about our retreat to Nicaragua was wonderful from Kevyn and Scotty to their team of wellness professionals to the magnificent surrounding. It was a restorative experience …and I’m still holding on to that feeling.
