Who is This Retreat For?

This retreat is for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of healthy eating, particularly as it relates to what you choose to eat, and as importantly, why. Our eating habits and the emotional baggage that fuels them are the main reasons we struggle with our weight, health, and sense of fulfillment. I’ll help you discover the best foods for optimal well-being while eliminating those that impede mental clarity, skew the metabolism, and create health imbalances. I’ll teach you how to begin to heal your body through a series of small changes, which will give you the focus and energy to make wise and meaningful choices in and out of the kitchen. We’ll also cover practices and exercises that will steer you through the challenging terrain of emotional eating. As you improve your physiology while negotiating emotional saboteurs, you’ll cultivate an effective eating style that will allow you to look and feel great, while gaining the inspiration to create a life that satisfies you.

My hope is for you to achieve health, happiness, and fulfillment. I want you to feel good in your body, so that you have the energy, peace, and radiance to feel inspired every day.

There are no age limits or prerequisites in terms of age or fitness to attend this retreat. All you need is the desire to take control of your health, learn about nutrition, meet some new friends, and be inspired in a beautiful location! There will be opportunity to engage in gentle but invigorating movement to clear your mind (yoga and hiking) and help kick-start your way to conscious eating!
