Ballard Health Club is happy to announce the Strength and Wellness Retreat at Suncadia with Karen Gamble and Aeron Hansen, November 6th through 9th. The natural beauty of Suncadia, with it’s pristine acreage along the Cle Elum River, is the perfect location for a wellness journey that encompases body conditioning, hiking, yoga and guided meditation.
Retreaters will be staying in a luxury vacation home with a gourmet kitchen, ample bedrooms and a comfy mountain lodge atmosphere. These 3 nights and 2 days will be a casual, relaxing and fun filled gathering for a group of women looking for a healthy and positive get-away.
All activities are optional. Mornings will begin with a yoga practice that includes breathing exercises and meditation. Before lunch, we will set out for area hikes. In the afternoons there will be cardio and strengthening fitness programs, teen building exercises and free time to explore Suncadia. Evenings we’ll gather for late yoga and meditation to wind us down for a good sleep.
