6-Day Live Better Retreat in Tulum, Mexico - March 2019
Everyone comes on a Live Better Retreat for different reasons, from different places, and in different places. We use health and wellness strategies to help you live your best life, whether that means heading out on your own as an entrepreneur, getting back on your feet after something didn't go your way, or finding some guidance in a time of transition. You might know your path, and we'll help you blaze it. If you're not quite sure, we'll help you search.
Nothing we do on this trip is mandatory. We simply provide the tools - you implement them how you see fit. If you're struck with the urge to explore, take a work call, journal, or nap, you're encouraged to do it. Yoga is all levels, as are the workouts. Whether you're a pro or a first-timer, we'll make sure you find growth in discomfort and success in putting yourself out there.
We have one retreat rule: be (unapologetically) yourself. We need you to be.
(Dreamy Vibes) + (Great Conversations) + (Bold Action) = Live Better Experience
I want you to imagine yourself sitting at your desk, or in your home, the Monday morning after the retreat. Is it the "same old shit" or is it a whole new ballgame? Expand the size of your world, and seek others who are expanding theirs.
“It’s safe to say that over the course of just six days, my time spent with Bret, Jason and the entire Live Better team changed my life for the better, pun intended. My story is a little unique in the fact that two weeks prior to the trip, I had just met Bret after a Barry’s Bootcamp class. At this time in my life, I was still overcoming severe anxiety, depression, and the overpowering feeling of loneliness in a city that promotes the opposite of all those things. After my quick and memorable chat with Bret and learning more about what Live Better does and stands for, I knew this trip could and would change my life. Never in my wildest imagination did I think I’d ever travel to the country of El Salvador, with 14 strangers, just for the sake of trying to “find myself” or seek some answers. Within those incredible six days: I met my new best friend, who ends up living just a few blocks from me in the city; I let go of self doubt, and pressed the reset button on my future; I challenged myself, both mentally and physically, and on the other side came out stronger. The mantra “best day ever” is truly what I strive for each and every day, and I cannot put into words how incredibly thankful I am to have met Bret, Jason, and Ryland, and to have said YES to trusting the process.”
