Mindful Eating, Yoga and Meditation Weekend Retreat with Liz Frost

Do you struggle with what you eat? Or when? Or why? 

Most of us are blissfully unaware of the process of eating – or maybe not so blissful.

This retreat is for you if you:

Are frustrated with the cycle of eating too much then beating yourself up?

Eat pretty healthy food but still gain weight?

Eat so quickly you don’t really taste the food?

Eat food you don’t like to please someone else?

Often eat more than you intended?

Feel like you need to nap after eating?

For most people the word “diet” means deprivation, frustration and suffering. However, the word diet really means a way of life. It doesn’t mean punishing yourself or starving.

Did you know that 95% of people who go on a prescribed diet to lose weight, gain the weight back and often gain more than what they initially lost? You don’t need to stay in that cycle of frustration!

This weekend we’ll explore motivation to eat

Did you know that you make approximately 200 decisions a day that involve eating? The way you make those decisions will determine what, where & when you eat and who you eat with. This weekend we’ll explore the why. You will leave the retreat with greater awareness of the decisions you make and the motivation behind them. Learn how to slow down the process of eating so that you enjoy every meal from now on – even the dash in the car. Learn how to say no to the well-intentioned people in your life who seem to want you to eat more or eat differently.


Learn how to give your body the nutrients you need to feel great, have more energy, reduce stress on your digestive system, your mental system and your emotional system. Be radiant! We’ll throw in some yoga for fun and explore the relationship we have with our bodies. No experience necessary. If you are breathing you can do yoga!


The weekend is a blend of group discussions, cooking classes, yoga, meditation, deep sleep and fun on the patio. Come join us!

Let this weekend be a gift to yourself

No experience is necessary and this retreat is perfect if you’re curious about meditation or yoga but not sure how to start or what to expect. This retreat is perfect for you even if you have physical limitations to movement.


We’ll spend time discussing various issues that can inhibit our healthy food choices and discover ways to be true to our intentions of healthy eating despite the stresses of daily living.


Everything over the weekend is completely optional. If you need to sleep in then skip the early morning sessions. If a massage is the nurturing you need, we can book that for you. Allow this weekend to be the kindest gift you could ever give yourself and honour your needs.
