Back to Vitality: A 5-night Wellness Kickstart

Sunday, March 26 – Friday, March 31, 2023

Have you been feeling out of sorts?

Lost your way on the wellness path?

Seeking direction, motivation, information and support as you (re)embark on your journey of health?

You are not alone. 

Consider joining us at Sugar Ridge for a 5-night kickstart designed to guide you towards the very best version of you!

The last few years have thrown us off kilter. For so many of us, our healthy habits and rituals have been altered or lost completely. Both globally and as individuals, we have been left feeling disconnected, out of balance, and out of touch with our vital selves in the realms of nutrition, movement, mindset and lifestyle.

One of the best parts of being human however, is that every single day we are gifted with another opportunity to begin again; to move forward and in the direction of our most vibrant, healthful and dynamic selves…one moment at a time! It is never too late to begin again!

This 5-night retreat is an offering of education, ritual, accountability, self-reflection, movement and community support. You will be surrounded by like-minded individuals who are also seeking the same things that you are. This is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach, however. It is simply a safe space where all participants can explore unique ways of healthy living that aligns with their own needs, abilities and lifestyles. 

Join us for the pure healing magic that is Sugar Ridge!
