Retreat to the Heartland
Since 1983 we’ve been helping people like you make lasting lifestyle changes. Whether you want to lose weight, adjust your diet, lose bad habits, gain healthy habits, reduce & relieve stress, or meet like minded people, our all-inclusive retreats will help. We’ve helped thousands of others just like yourself.
Our ALL NEW, week-long programs are designed to help jump start your life in whichever week works best for you. Or, join us for all 3 weeks! Our full 21 day experience is complete for beginners as well as experts and will take you through hands-on lessons to help alter your kitchen for more juicing, blending, vegan meals, dehydrating, sprouting like the pro’s and that is only one of our new weeks!
Our most frequent comment we hear from departing guests is “life-changing.” Satisfied guests, now called Alumni of Heartland, return every year to renew and refine their healthy lifestyle goals, enjoy all of our nurturing spa services, and reset good habits… all while losing a few pounds, connecting with their personal goals and making some new, life-long friends.
A wellness retreat is a vacation for a healthier YOU….
For some, the primary goal is losing weight and to reduce stress in their lives. Others come for daily massages, nurturing spa treatments, and transformational conversations. Some want to prevent and address physical and other health issues. Others seek grace in dealing with a difficult event. Some are maximizing health before a medical treatment, being pro-active and preventative. Others seek the ultimate spa-health vacation in a beautiful location!
Everyone agrees: Our holistic, all-inclusive approach works!
Bring your friends, come with your family or your partner. Shared & Private rooms available every week. Everyone leaves feeling better and, best of all – living better.
Some previous guests have reported dramatic and sometimes remarkable results including reduced insulin dependency, a decrease in bad cholesterol levels, improved blood sugar, reduction of chronic pain, greater feelings of well-being and overall happiness! No matter what goals you set for yourself, our compassionate, supportive staff will be with you on every step of your journey.
We know many of you are only able to come for one special week-long program each year, however, ask about our 21 day, full three week course and be sure to take advantage of our discounted rates. Take them all at once, or split them up, even give one to a friend as a gift. Also, each week is different, so make sure to experience them all! Still need some help after leaving our program? You can even take on-line and telephone coaching home with you!
Help YOU create and enjoy the retreat YOU need to make the lifestyle changes YOU want!
It’s safe to say that if you want to live a long and healthy life, exercise of some kind, is a must. Physical exercise, when practiced regularly, increases stamina, blood circulation and overall physical health, and science also shows that it treats depression, ADHD, and other mood disorders. But if you are going to stick with it and make it a habit, fitness must also be enjoyable! Learn what YOU like from our menu of daily lakeshore heart walks, yoga and dance classes, body sculpting, tai chi, pool exercise, and other fitness classes. No matter what shape you’re in, you will find lots of options at the Heartland.
Every day you will enjoy some form of activity (or maybe not if you are cleansing); it’s your choice. We care that everybody gets the fitness, movement, exercise they need, at every age, in any health condition. When your heart is healthy, the rest of your body will follow the leader! If you are not sure where to start, then a personalized health assessment may be added a la carte to any package.
The evidence is in: What we eat matters a lot, especially as we age. There are many reasons to learn to eat a healthier diet, not only as a temporary weight-loss fix but also as a long-term lifestyle solution. Our portion-controlled, delicious plant based, raw / vegan meals, served three times daily, have been developed to provide optimal nutrition – but also to nourish mind, body and spirit. You may also choose to have your meals blended (for easier digestion), choose a juice cleanse program or just only have juice for breakfast and a healthy meal for dinner. Mix and match to suit your needs!
At the Heartland, we focus on evidence-based nutritional information, not fads. All of our foods that we serve are gluten and dairy free, raw / living greens, sprouts and vegetables, or an optional blended meal, even juice is available for all who request it. Some nuts, seeds, or avocado may be served as well, which are always labeled.
Not sure what to do once your return home? Personalized nutrition consultations may be added a la carte to any package.
Spa services soothe the soul – if you’re a seeker of balance, adding regular bodywork to your health regime might really help!
Luxurious massages and rejuvenating facials are our most popular offerings, but our spa also offers reflexology, deep tissue, acupuncture, hot stone massages, Reiki, Tui Nah, fire cupping, acupuncture, arromassage, dry brush exfoliation, and other luxurious body treatments, both invigorating and deeply relaxing.
Spa services are included in every package, and additional services may be added a la carte.
Relaxation and stress relief is the FOCUS of your experience at the Heartland. While all vacations are supposed to let you ‘chill out’, we seek to help you deeply relax here by 1. Helping you get the right amount of body movement, leading to better sleep. 2. Enjoying some of the healthiest prepared meals in the country in a beautiful environment! 3. Meeting life-long & like-minded friends and 4. Enjoying our luxurious spa treatments.
We also teach you how to take that relaxation home with you: we are committed to sharing a diversity of practices to reduce stress and tension, increase mindfulness and mind-body balance, and restore a natural feeling of well-being to your everyday life. Being able to keep friends in your life with new choices, and maybe letting some old habits exit on their own.
These practices come from a variety of traditions and incorporate internal body awareness and energy balancing techniques. Each week we offer classes and information sessions to help you learn to enjoy life more. Individualized classes, assessments, and workshops can also be scheduled to help you meet your specific needs. Be sure to check out all of our NEW 21 DAY lecture series as well as certified programs and special guest speaker weeks!
