Learn how these four fundamentals of our program will reboot your fitness and help you lose weight!
Our fitness guides will lead you on daily 1-3 hour hikes to nearby trails near the shore and in midst of forest and mountains. Our August 2024 retreat will be more beginner based but expect to sweat and get a good cardiovascular workout while receiving nature therapy. We will also lead you in a kayaking tour in beautiful Puget Sound waters. Morning yoga classes will stretch your muscles and prepare you for a continued week of activity. Other classes consist of strength training, yoga, and meditation.
Local chefs will prepare individualized meals for your specific needs, using mostly organic locally sourced sustainably raised food. You will be on average 1400-1800 calories/day of meals and snacks throughout the day and you will not feel hungry. Instead you will be energized and feel fully sustained. After a week of eating clean, you will feel like a new person and lose weight. You will also learn about nutrition and mindful eating through lectures and discussions.
Learn how mindfulness promotes less inflammation in the body, changes the brain and promotes prefrontal cortex and reduces our fight and flight center. You will be led in yoga and meditation classes and you will have quiet personal relaxation time at the retreat house.
You will have the opportunity to book massage sessions during your week at the retreat house by local therapists. Cleansing food and drinks will support your body to detoxify toxins and chemicals that build up from our environment. Sweating during your workouts and re-hydrating with clean water will naturally detoxify your body.
