The weight-loss program is not just a 10 day retreat. Rather, it is an extensive program with far-reaching benefits. It starts weeks before you arrive on site and continues for 4 months afterwards with monthly follow-ups, yoga sessions, opportunities for questions and continuing guidance. While some books and blogs leave you on your own and wondering, we guide you through each step of the process so that you are sure your effort – and results – are moving in the right direction.
