This is the best fasting retreat I've ever been on. Mary Jo & Steve were fantastic hosts, guides, chefs, yoga teachers, health coaches. Massage therapy services were excellent. My friend and I stayed in the Alpine Villa and loved the private hot tub, amazing shower and comfortable accommodations. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting a health reset. Knowledgable, compassionate, funny, kind, generous hosts, Mary Jo & Steve went out of their way to make us feel welcome, comfortable, nourished, cared for and encouraged every step of the way. I will be back!

I'd looked at yoga retreats in the past and wasn't sure they were for me but when I saw the adventure wellness retreat at vibrant living it sounded perfect. Mary Jo & Steve were welcoming and flexible tailoring the activities to my preferences and the weather. The food was all plant based and really tasty. A magical few days.

This was the perfect stay for our family of 9 including our dog. We stayed in the amazing Cottage & Spa Villa which were both clean, tidy, spacious & had all the amenities you need along with stunning views of the mountains. Great hosts who also gave us an early check in which was much appreciated. The owners dog Magica was a highlight for us since she is so cute/friendly & visits your room throughout the day. Bikes for hire was a bonus too. We didn’t have time to do the day spa this trip but we’ll definitely be back & book a massage next time. Awesome place to stay & highly recommend! Thanks again Steve & Mary Jo :)
