Real change comes from within: To change your body, first change your mind.
Participants at Unite Fitness Retreat discover that being healthy starts from the inside. In order for real change to last, you need to be aware of the behaviors, habits, and thoughts that have not worked in the past, you can adopt new ways of thinking that will improve your life for the long term. Our emotions about food and our body are created in our mind.
If you gain self mastery over your mind you have a means for mastery over your body. Self awareness is having a clear perception of your personality; including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation and emotions. Self awareness is the first step in creating the life you want!
Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. This is often called the “mind/body connection” and it’s something we talk about at our weight loss camp quite often. When you are stressed, anxious or upset, your body tries to tell you that something isn’t right. For example, high blood pressure or weight gain may begin to develop after a particularly stressful event. There are many clues to find out if your emotional health is out of balance. At Unite Fitness Retreat, we help achieve balance awareness in both your body and your mind through meditation, yoga, talk therapy, spa rejuvenation, stress-management, and above all, you choosing to take care of yourself.
Each week, regardless of length of stay, guests meet privately with our life-coaches, this is an optional service that is included in the program. Participants are encouraged to change their priorities and focus on themselves allowing time to reflect, re-assess, and flourish. Along with individual life-coaching, we offer group behavioral modification education. Some of the topics covered in group discussions include: Food addictions, putting a stop to emotional eating, binge eating, making healthy food choices, life-style activity, thoughts on weight, problem solving, trauma, stress-management, relapse prevention, and relationship issues. Couples who come together may find it beneficial to do their sessions together. Keep in mind, life-coaching is optional- it is not required.
