It’s not only beneficial for your physical body, it also helps you process your emotions more effectively. We highly recommend all of our clients engage in some type of physical activity every day, either on their own or as part of their couples retreat. If you wish to incorporate it into your retreat you can choose between a scenic hike on the land, the Sedona vortex experience, or private yoga. You can do the same physical activity every day if you wish or mix it up. During a couples retreat you can do the same activity together or each of you can choose what you want to do individually.

Whether it’s physical or emotional, it’s very damaging to a relationship and many times you will need assistance to save your marriage or relationship.

“My overall experience at SpiritQuest was nothing short of a miracle. I was skeptical that I could change so quickly within a span of 4 days. But nonetheless miracles do happen!
I feel more like myself again, and growing stronger each day. Something I have not felt in a long time and with a greater understanding that even if I fall of my path I can always land very quickly and get back on it. Thank-you!
