Before coming to Skyterra, I tragically lost my best friend and the love of my life. I didn't know how I was supposed to live even at a basic level. I came to Skyterra with minimal expectations. But everyday I started to feel a little bit more like myself. I started feeling alive again. You can't really heal unless you address each individual part. Mind, Body and Soul. And Skyterra's holistic recipe to wellness addressed all those parts equally. I never felt judged or treated like I was different. I was ok. If I hadn't gone to Skyterra, I honestly don't know where would I be. But I imagine it to be a dark place. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you are getting what you need out of the experience. There is never a lack of smiles or laughter.

This is my second time at Skyterra and it was just amazing. I was there in August for one week and I could not wait to return. No matter what you are looking for in a wellness retreat Skyterra has it all: hiking, workouts, yoga, stretching, and fun stuff! I’ve social anxiety and tend to shy away from trying something new but at Skyterra every staff member makes you feel that you can do anything. It is a wonderfully supportive environment that nurtures the whole self. In my three weeks here I have been able to experience almost all that Skyterra has to offer. I have reconnected with nature, stepped outside my comfort zone, made lifelong friends, and feel valued as a person. If you are looking for a place reset look no further than Skyterra.

The people who work here have to be the most generous, dedicated folks I've ever had the pleasure to meet. It may sound cliche but everyone at Skyterra REALLY cares about you, your well-being, your progress, and your ability to take home the abundant knowledge they so enthusiastically share. The employees, the meals, and the accomodations are all above and beyond! I promise that if you are open and anxious to feel better, to see everything with a more confident and grateful spirit, this is the place for you!

Skyterra was an answer to my prayers. I was grieving, had gained weight and lost my motivation to do anything but eat and sleep. I didn't feel good. I didn't feel like myself so I threw myself a lifeline and I took the plunge and signed up for the losesmart program. This package was unbelievable. A private cottage, 3 meals a day, grief counseling, personalized fitness plan, personalized nutrition plan, amazing staff who are non judgmental, supportive and just kind. This place is amazing. Not only did being there help lift me up it exposed me to so many firsts like, kayaking, pickle ball, hiking, and paddle boarding. I never would have done any of these activities anywhere, but the staff is confident, knowledgeable and capable. I felt safe. I am now home and gradually incorporating everything I learned in the classes like nutrition redefined, fitness redefined, getting back to you, inspired intentions, sound sleep, into my daily routine. I literally have taken the schedule that was personalized for me before leaving and plugged it into my life. There's no way I can lose. I've been equipped to continue my skyterra experience AT HOME.
