About This Center

Have you ever been so passionate and driven to achieve something that you burned yourself out? Well, I thought I was invincible but it happened to me in 2012 when my own personal pressure and stress resulted in a serious health condition.

Hi, I am Yancy Wright, Founder/CEO of Alternavida. I left my career in the green building industry to make a larger impact by creating opportunities for people to experience life as nature intended; simple, regenerative, healthy, happy, balanced and full of fun. My inspiration is nature and the pure talent of our diverse health and wellness practitioners that are passionate about helping others develop better tools, practices and fresh perspective.

Alternavida was created to inspire transformation and growth for individuals, groups, and companies looking to deepen their purpose in this world.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
