Reset & Refresh Retreat
Join FloYo, Mantra Fit and Meadow Hill Wellness for an immersive wellness experience. This is more than a retreat. This is a hands-on coaching program that guides you to vibrant health through nutrition, Chinese medicine, yoga and meditation.
Your journey starts weeks before the trip begins. You will be coached by our three wellness experts before we embark on our 4 night retreat. Two weeks prior to the retreat, you will learn how to make changes in your life to revitalize your energy, weight loss, hormones and feel good in your own skin. Then, we will travel to our beautiful hotel in Sedona, Arizona, where you’ll find a sacred place to decompress, take a deep breath and truly focus on yourself.
Your Wellness Coaches:
Carleen Birnes is the owner of Mantra Fit, a wellness studio in Severn Park, MD, which got its humble start in 2012 as an outdoor bootcamp. Word got out quickly and her bootcamp tribe grew. Stand up paddle came next as Carleen helped people take their fitness to the water. Her movement community expanded even more, which led Carleen to open her Mantra Fit studio in 2014. As Carleen worked with clients to help them achieve their health and weight goals, she realized that exercise alone isn’t enough. She dove into nutrition to find answers, training under functional medicine pioneer Chris Kresser. Now, as a certified functional health coach, Carleen helps clients tap into their body’s innate wisdom to activate healing through diet, movement, habit change and mindset.
