Experience the Joy of Health
with Amrita Sandra McLanahan, M.D. and Ramakrishna Sackett
January 24 - 26, 2020
If you know the scientific benefits which support living a healthy lifestyle, you can better navigate daily life. Even more, experiencing a retreat can establish you firmly on your road to achieving and maintaining optimum wellness. This health-filled retreat is designed to help you detoxify and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit.
Throughout the weekend, Dr. Amrita and Ramakrishna (loved at Yogaville for their frank humor and accessible teaching style) will outline Eastern and Western techniques that will successfully assist you in:
- Losing weight
- Decreasing high blood pressure, cholesterol, and stress
- Preventing and reversing diabetes, heart disease, and cancer
- Relaxing and re-energizing
You’ll have the tools and motivation to continue making your health a priority when you return home.

Good balance of talk and activity. Excellent presenters.
I like that there was both the spiritual and physical side to health in this workshop.
We wanted to make more healthy choices at this stage of our lives. It was extremely informative and life-changing.
Presenters were dynamic, wise, and inspiring.
