“The focus of my retreat was on dealing with grief. Vita Wellness provided me with a fresh perspective and a holistic approach to wellness in body, mind, and spirituality. I look forward to using the tools they provided me to now live my life with joy and achieve my higher purpose.” 
Dr. Alyshah Kaba

“I recently attended Vita Wellness's Healing Retreat and was amazed at how much I learned from the Life Coaching and Wellness portion of their retreat. The program taught me how to control my thoughts, self-awareness, and how to reconnect with my true inner self. The most amazing part of the Retreat was the connection with a loved one I had lost and the reconnection with myself. The yoga, meditation, and connection part of the Retreat really resonated with me on a whole new level I feel completely rejuvenated and rebalanced. I truly appreciate everything Vita Wellness has done for me during my stay at their beautiful Bragg Creek location.“

I attended a 6-night retreat with Dr. Shelley as my coach, I don't just feel lighter, this place and these hands have healed me. I was dying, my soul was leaving and I felt no love. Now I feel love and life within me, now I am learning to live life with love, and with great excitement, I am resurrected within. Thank you to everyone at Vita Wellness, thank you for bringing me back and making me stronger than I ever knew was possible. Thank you

“I just came back from Vita Wellness's 5-Day retreat and I was spoiled with how well I was treated by the staff. The location was in a beautiful secluded area but not far from the city. My retreat leader Michelle taught me to believe in myself and my dreams, she was an inspiration, life coaching, and meditation was an amazing experience for me I now know that I can follow my passion and dreams and open myself to new and exciting experiences. Thank you, Vita Wellness for everything you did for me!“

I loved my retreat experience at Vita Wellness, the program met my expectations, and I was treated excellently by my coaches and the staff. I came feeling defeated and left feeling and knowing that I now have the power and tools to fulfill my purpose. I have gained the power of loving myself through forgiveness, light, and love. I am now able to live my authentic life!

“Vita Wellness Mind, Body & Spirit Retreat was exactly what I needed in my life! My Retreat Leader Assia really challenged me with questions I was trying to ignore, she made me really think about things in my life and helped me to draw out my issues and to reflect on them. She taught me how to be honest with myself. Now that I have attended their retreat I feel more clear-headed, focused, stress-free and most importantly I feel lighter spiritually, I was able to release myself from everything that has been holding me back in my life.“

“My week-long experience at Vita Wellness Retreat was a very positive one that will stay with me for years to come.  When I arrived at the facility, I was immediately given a warm welcome by my coach and I was treated like family. I was made to feel comfortable and safe. All the staff and service providers treated me with respect and were skilled at their craft, which enhanced the overall experience. The breakfast served was home-cooked and the other meals were all healthy and fulfilling. The facility itself was a big log cabin on the Elbow River that allowed for free movement and I did not feel caged in at all.
As for my treatment, the collaborative approach (spiritual and clinical) was very helpful in determining what was negatively affecting my mental health. Both Michelle and Marlowe offered tools that are going to aid in my mental health and well-being for the time to come. I would encourage anyone who is struggling with their mental health to try out Vita Wellness, even if it’s for a day or two just to relax. You will be treated like family and leave the facility refreshed and reset!“

“What helped me most is a couple of things, the one-on-one was more in-depth and beneficial in gaining insight as opposed to a larger group setting, and the tranquil beautiful setting was exactly what I needed! What resonated with me was the power that we all have within ourselves to change our thinking, and the discussion on what the ego really is and how it operates was extremely insightful. The dream exercises also resonated with us, I have been given guidance and I am also more aware of physical signs. What I liked most about my retreat was that it was better than what I expected, it was a wonderful location, the food was delicious, and I spent my time with Michelle who was compassionate about how I was feeling. I definitely feel less anxious/uptight, I have a renewed sense of purpose and I feel more focused on the now! Assia treated me with compassion, and respect and she was non-judgmental about how I was feeling. My retreat was truly a beautiful experience. Thank you Vita Wellness for all your help during my retreat!“

"Thank you for helping me get over the loss of three people in my life through your retreat and your wellness counseling, Vita Wellness has truly changed my life. Thank you for sparking my light again, I'm forever grateful." 
Dr. Alicia.


"Vita Wellness’s Private Mexico One-on-One Wellness Retreat was a life-changing experience for me, it helped me with my self-worth and to truly love myself again. Michelle was able to help me with my confidence, purpose, mindset, and anxiety, and gave me the coping tools I needed in my life. Upon the completion of my retreat, I have positive thoughts, and a new mindset, and am so much happier with my life. Michelle really helped me let go and forgive. I am now confident in how I feel, it’s okay to be alone, I am happy with myself, I learned to not focus on the past but how to live in the now and the future, I am able to trust my intuition, and how I feel. The one-on-one private retreat with Michelle was truly life-changing, the walks and yoga on the beach were truly calming and blissful, and the therapy sessions helped me to feel loved once again in my life.
Thank you Vita Wellness for this amazing and truly life-changing Wellness Retreat!
I would strongly recommend this retreat to anyone looking for self-discovery and healing. I found that the support of my retreat guide, Michelle, was remarkable.

"The meditations and yoga and all the spa services helped me relax and rejuvenate my mind and body. I also really enjoyed the one-on-one coaching sessions. I came out rejuvenated and renewed. What a truly amazing Retreat."  

"The workshop/ wellness classes gave me plenty of food for thought and I found myself self-reflecting on what I've learned weeks later...the tools I've attained have created a snowball effect for positive change in my life. Thank you Vita Wellness"

"The focus of my retreat was on dealing with grief, and I truly felt I was given the tools to move forward after feeling so much sadness and pain for so long. The meditation and spiritual therapy were enlightening and gave me peace and closure. Vita Wellness provided me with a fresh perspective and a holistic approach to wellness body, mind, and spirituality, which our medical systems fail to offer to individuals, especially for those mourning and grieving loved ones. I'm forever grateful."  
Dr. Mary Sunday


"I really enjoyed my stay here and intend on coming back! I really liked Assia as a life coach. She is an incredible person and I would highly recommend her to anyone!" 
Jim Bazeley


"I can never thank Michelle and Vita Wellness enough for teaching me the value of me. I came to this retreat broken and grieving. I couldn't imagine my life any different than it had been for the last 36 months." 

"I came to the Vita wellness retreat in Bragg Creek for a week and it was the best thing I've ever done in my life, I came for depression and anxiety I didn’t know where I was going anymore. I didn’t know how to help my family or myself at all. I had no feelings, I was numb. I went to therapists for many years and they just put more drugs in my body and just tell me to breathe, it wasn’t working for me anymore. Finally, I found this retreat and it was worth every cent I paid to come here. And I would do it all over again. Vita wellness changed my life, I arrived feeling broken I left feeling powerful."

Kylea T. 

"I had a wonderful experience at Vita Wellness! Every treatment or coaching session surpassed my expectations.

The coaching offered amazing insight into how you can continue to get out of your own way and live your best life.

The environment was lovely! A wonderful change from the city, I felt a huge weight off my shoulders from just being there. 

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to both rejuvenate your mind and body, plus, give yourself an extra nudge to achieve your higher purpose." 

Tracy R. 

"I came to the resort thinking that I would have a simple relaxing experience and that I already had so much of my life on good terms that I wouldn't receive much out of the coaching. I quickly found out that, as is always the case, there are always ways to tweak your life/mindset/attitude/etc. for the better. 

Vita Wellness is so tapped into their intuition that I could not hide what needed to be tweaked and they immediately knew what the tweak had to be. I'm very excited to immediately apply the tips, tricks, and advice they provided as I already know they will help.

They feel right.

I plan to regularly make use of coaching and healing. We all need to be pointed back toward our life's true North and I trust that Vita Wellness has the right experience, knowledge, and intuition to provide the right adjustments. 

The retreat itself has wonderful hosts who ensure that you have all the comforts and more of a safe and secure home.

The environment is incredibly peaceful and the silence is deafening. In less than 24 hours, all my stress and worries melted away.

I am grateful for the experience and hope that others have the opportunity to take advantage of this unique experience." 

Kurtis W. 

"Michelle and Jenny were my coaches for my Extreme freedom from depression retreat. As I'm getting ready to leave I want to tell you I am so grateful for having met both of them and having the chance to attend this retreat. They have bought clarity and love back into my life. It took me a long time to get where I was but I am now hopeful that it's not going to take me long to get where I want to be. Thank you!"

Tammy S.

"I attended the extreme freedom from depression retreat for 7 days and my coach Alana was amazing! The retreat program exceeded my expectations, I loved everything about it. I am already a different person because of it, this was truly a life-changing experience. All of the staff from the booking staff, and hosts to the service providers were very professional, easy to be around, and made me feel comfortable and safe. I finally have the tools to regain my power back! I would recommend this retreat to anyone who is struggling! This changed me into the person I wanted to be and for that I am grateful." 

Dale W.

"I had a very positive, healing experience at the Vita Wellness retreat! I was treated amazingly by the staff and enjoyed the food very much. There's nothing I would change, I was finally able to realize I am the leader of my life and the power is within me! Thank you for giving me the knowledge and tools I needed."

Kaitlyn M.

"This retreat experience met all of my expectations and more. I learned a lot of skills and information. I was able to learn which areas of my life needed change. So many tools were given to me to practice with, and I am so excited to go back out and apply them to my life! And the food was great with a fantastic variety offered." 

Linda C.


"After attending Vita wellness retreat, I have released well over 40 years of trauma and anxiety from my life. I feel reborn. I am not suffering from depression and anxiety as I have for the past 25 years, and I thank Michelle and Vita  for all of my healing. I would highly recommend Vita Wellness with all my heart." 


“When I booked this retreat, I was an empty shell of my former, true self. I had no idea that what I was about to experience would be 100 times more therapeutic, rejuvenating and transformative than I ever imagined. I’m certain that this is a powerful turning point in my life.” and I highly recommend this retreat now to all my patients.” 


"This experience is now an invaluable tool for me to carry on retrieving my inner strength and true self. Opening myself to the guidance of my own energy and intuition was empowered by this retreat. The consistency of Michelle's presence and reassurance of presenting my path through difficult times is what makes this retreat one of the best choices for having a reprieve from the stresses of life. 
Thank you and God bless.”
