During your ELEVATE retreat, all the activities are focused around you. From our classes, conversations on self-improvement to food preparation demonstrations, we want you to leave ELEVATE prepared with the tools to succeed when you return to your real life routine.
Here is a brief description of the types of activities you can expect from your ELEVATE retreat, as well as a sample itinerary for a day.
This series of conversations is geared to providing you with the knowledge that you need to succeed once you’re back to life at home. At Elevate we refer to our learning segments as conversations, as they are very informal and comfortable with interaction from the guest.
It is crucial to have these tools so that when you do return, you can stay on track with your goals set during your Elevate stay.
Some conversations may include weight loss specific chats like how to combat emotional eating, why quality is better than quantity when it comes to food, and how to not sabotage your progress by falling back into old habits. Nutrition and dietary conversations will include the role of inflammation on your health. The conversations may also be geared for sports or optimal performance for the athlete in all of us like; the biomechanics of success, training the competitor within, and swim, bike run 101.
We will be hiking almost every morning. On Friday your senses will take you on a journey called “The Peak Experience.” This is an all morning hike that ends with a meditation and then a packed lunch that will teach how to eat healthfully on a picnic. To really experience the environment in Kayenta and the surrounding southern Utah area, you have to be out in it. The colors on the trail, the awesome views and the oneness in being with nature will inspire your own transformation.

At Elevate, exercise is looked at and studied from a varied perspective. As we all know the importance of regular exercise and how valuable and crucial it is to our optimum health and well being, often times we are at a loss as to how to maintain it for a lifetime, incorporate it into our busy, stressed out schedules and how to consistently make it a part of our life.
