LIVING LIFE MORE FULLY is the goal of the Women’s Wellness three-day seminar. This experiential program crafted through trial, feedback, and correction has developed into a world-class workshop over twenty years. Our approach focuses on personal strengths and best practices and cultural differences. Lifestyle options, individualized assessments, relationships challenges, body type, exercise needs, nutritional requirements, and lifestyle options are a few topics embedded in your tailored plan designed to foster permanent change. Women’s Wellness is community-based and draws on many of the abundant resources and local experts in your neighborhood. We work in concert to give women practical advice and intellectual stimulation who are then able to serve as resources for continued support. This program honors the natural ability of women to know what is best for themselves and their families once presented with current health-conscious research.

Groups of women empower each other.
Women are incredibly different at age 20 than they are at age 40 or 60. Our needs change as we evolve.

The general state of our mind and body are intertwined.
Relationships are significant and affect all other areas of our lives. Laughing, crying, and exercising all serve to relieve stress.
