Outside Together with Mary Jelkovsky

By staying at Under Canvas, you take part in our mission to inspire connections with extraordinary places, people, and the planet by enhancing access to the outdoors. Our mindful approach to upscale, outdoor hospitality fosters connection with family and friends while protecting and preserving the great outdoors. When you head out into nature and leave the modern world behind, you’re able to connect with your best outdoor self, your family, your loved ones, and the beauty of the natural world that surrounds you.

Back with our Outside Together series which speaks to our beliefs that nature is the best architect and unique experiences strengthen relationships, we’re sharing memories of a desert getaway to Under Canvas Lake Powell-Grand Staircase & Under Canvas Grand Canyon.

Joining us is Mary Jelkovsky, the author of the best-selling book, The Gift of Self-Love as well as the journal, 100 Days of Self-Love. She is also the host of the top-rated Mary’s Cup of Tea Podcast: The Self-Love Podcast for Women. Over the past 5 years, she’s been leading worldwide self-love retreats and her message has been highlighted in TEDx, Teen Vogue, Shape, and Health Magazine.

When Mary’s not writing, podcasting, or hosting retreats, she is spending time with her little sister Ilana who is her biggest inspiration. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and rescue dog!
