Develop new healthy habits that promote long term weight-loss and life-long health and fitness. Exotic Yoga Retreats’ New Body ~ New Life 4-day health program is not a quick-fix bootcamp—it’s a sustainable approach to a healthy and fit lifestyle. We host our retreats at stunning locations – like Catalina Island – with beautiful surroundings, sumptuous gourmet, gluten-free, organic farm-to-table cuisine, and luxuriously warm and hospitable accommodations.
NEW BODY ~ NEW LIFE HEALTH RETREAT
Feeling good about yourself and comfortable in your body is a foundation to being healthy and happy. The Catalina Women’s Yoga & Health Retreat retreat will support you in changing your life style and eating habits to increase your energy levels and your overall sense of “aliveness”.
Two great coaches, personal trainer and nutritional specialist, Lisa Nielsen, and yoga instructor, Leslie Nicole Smith, each with over 20 years experience in the health and wellness fields, will support you in discovering new ways to love yourself into your optimal body shape and weight, through fun exercises, nutrition, yoga, breathing, walking in nature and activities to promote will-power and positive mind states. P.S. We also believe that pleasure and relaxation are an important part of health and well-being focus—this health retreat will be a living example of JOY and BALANCE!

The New Body ~ New Life health retreat was everything I had hoped, and more! It wasn't just yoga and fitness class like you could get at a gym; instead it focused on daily health habits, exercises, recipes and nutritional information that you could take home and integrate in the daily life. It was a great group of women and such a supportive atmosphere. I would highly recommend this retreat for anyone wanting to improve how you feel everyday!— Megan Lombardi, USA

“Before meeting Gayle I had tried a number of teachers, some of them with excellent reputations in London and India, but yoga never really came alive until I started studying with her. Gayle’s intuitive, sensitive and phenomenal teaching skills helped me to totally live inside my body and find new depths in my practice. Gayle makes yoga both accessible and challenging. She brings the spirit of healing and freedom into her classes and all the fellow students I’ve met, find her an unforgettable teacher.” —Deborah Poland, Canada
