Give yourself this time to renew.

Maybe you need a break from your routine.  A chance to get away to the mountains, far from your busy life, to focus on you for a few days.  Perhaps you have a health issue or two that you’d like help with.  And maybe you’d just like to have some fun, meet new friends, and enjoy the stunningly beautiful mountains of Colorado.

While you are here, your body will be treated to energizing and restorative yoga sessions, nutritious meals, fresh mountain air, and lots of fun activities.  You’ll have plenty of time to relax as well.


Give yourself this time to learn.

Your presenters during these three days have a wealth of information to share with you.  Sessions with our two doctors, Samantha and Kim, will be tailored to your health questions and needs to ensure you get the most out of the retreat.  Our world-class nutrition guru, Derek, will help guide you through all the conflicting diet fads and hype to discover what actually works best for you.

Although we have a lot planned for these three days, this weekend is meant to be relaxing and restorative.  All activities and sessions are optional, and we have built in plenty of flexibility and free time to ensure you come away feeling renewed and refreshed.


Each day includes multiple options for yoga, in the morning and afternoon.  Join in for one or both, your choice.


Sessions led by our two doctors will take place throughout the morning and afternoon.  Sessions will be structured around specific topics tailored to the questions and issues that are important to you.


Each day will start with a Superfood smoothie, lovingly prepared by our nutrition guru, Derek.  Throughout the three days, Derek will lead sessions on nutrition tailored to the specific needs of our participants.
