Guests will learn a number of new life skills to hold them in good stead as they prepare to embrace life after the retreat.  Activities for the mind include early morning yoga sessions and daily food demonstrations by the Resort chefs to guide them in the preparation of shakes, snacks and meals with optimum nutrition for a healthy body.
