I want to share with you and the other folks at Evolve the impact that the retreat has had on me. I came home exhausted - in fact I had a nap almost as soon as we were unpacked. The rest of the day was busy with catching up on email and texts and grocery shopping with a focus on organic and natural foods to continue with the lessons we learned at Azuridge. After a fabulous night sleep, I awoke with an energy that I haven’t had in a long time. The scales say I lost 3 pounds and my clothes are looser. I put on my yoga duds and went for a circuit workout at Curves, had lunch with some friends and came home ready to tackle some long overdue “to do’s”. I share all this as evidence of the incredible impact that the retreat has had. Last week I felt sluggish and did a lot of procrastinating. No more. Thank you all for making it all possible!
I signed up for the retreat with the intention of taking a couple of days off work after a tough few months, and to spend some quality time with my girlfriends doing things we all enjoy. What I took away was some of the modifications I could make to my current lifestyle to help me feel better, calmer, more balanced, and fit.
I really thought I lived a healthy lifestyle before going to Evolve, but I realized there were some tweaks I could make to do even better. I'm so grateful I attended the retreat, and am so impressed with the caliber of the Evolve team. And lastly, I'm so glad I had the opportunity to share this experience with my girlfriends, and with all the new friends I made at the retreat.
I didn't really know what to expect when I showed up for my first retreat. I have been saying for years that I want to get healthier and stronger but as soon as I would get into a rhythm of some kind, life would get complicated and I would become defeated and full of excuses. This retreat seemed like a great opportunity to kick start a new healthy routine with the support of the Evolve experts. Not only did I get the kick start I was hoping for, I also found a deep motivation and understanding of how to keep the momentum going. I felt so alive and inspired, and am amazed that I still feel this good two weeks after getting home. Thank you to the amazing team and other guests who made this experience so much more than I thought was possible.
For the last month following my retreat with Evolve Retreat Co. I hadn’t had any coffee, chocolate or refined sugars (i.e. no cookies, ice cream or desserts other than fruit). The last few days I have had a little lemon sorbet and some chocolate chewy things made with dark chocolate and quinoa(one a day) that my husband brought home. However, it is due to increased stress, so I imagine I can get back on track once the stress lessens! I didn’t lose any weight (water or otherwise!) in the two days at the retreat but steadily lost 9 pounds. I have reached a plateau I think. However, unless you count packing and moving boxes over the last month, (we are moving our office) I haven’t had time to exercise. I swear Tommy is a little devil sitting on my shoulder giving me reminders of how I promised I would work out! I would like to lose another 10 lbs but all in all as a 64 year old who hasn’t looked after herself very well in the past 10 years, I can say that the retreat was a huge success for me. THANK YOU!
Evolve Retreat Co. goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is luxurious and your experiences are breathtaking. I would have never took on the challenge of hiking Nahahi Ridge if it wasn't for Evolve and their over qualified staff. They made sure we all felt safe and cared for. I pushed myself harder than I ever had that week and the benefit is unexplainable. I keep a value statement made at the retreat by the yoga instructor. She said, "for one to be truly healthy one must feed the mind the body and the soul." Thank you Evolve from my soul and above!
