I just got back from Copperhood and it exceeded my expectations. I signed up for the three day juice cleanse which was difficult for the mere fact that I love food. However, I'm glad I did it!! After three days, I lost weight, gained a tremendous amount of energy and was beyond relaxed. I've heard of challenges from juice cleansing before. My advice is to go vegan at least a week in advance to help your body adjust.
Whether you juice, go raw foods, or eat regularly, you're bound to leave feeling relaxed and healthy provided that you partake in all of the great activities offered. I never meditated before and I found it to be an incredibly useful relaxation technique. The hikes were beautiful. The classes were well done. Due to being there on a quiet week, I even got some one on one classes in. Furthermore, the spa services were great too.
Most importantly, the staff at this retreat make you feel so comfortable and at home.
If you're looking for personal attention, have an appreciation for nature, and are invested in a healthy lifestyle, then this is an absolute must do trip!!!
