My name is Valerie Leeds, and over the last decade I have been there too. Growing up in NYC with a foodie mom, I naturally was exposed to a lot of amazing culinary delights. My palate grew to include multi-cultural cuisines at a young age, including plenty of bagels, fabulous breads and bakeries, mouth watering Chinese dumplings and Italian pastas. Seemingly out of nowhere, in my mid-thirties, my experience radically changed when I realized I was getting bloating and elimination issues! Apparently, I could no longer eat gluten and was overly sensitive to sugar. I was experiencing bloating, eczema, and on and off elimination issues, which than lead to brain fog and poor sleep. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling great. And my family started feeling like they needed a support group to keep up with the stress that eating was causing for me and them! Finding my way, navigating through the maze of non-GMO, organic, raw, vegan, gluten free, paleo I decided to become a Certified Health Coach in this process to rediscover my path back to vibrant health and well being. Fortunately, I have found a way to boil down all my years of trials and health issues down to some very simple principles and guidelines.

So now that you realize you are not alone, make the choice to be supported in creating your own sustainable healthy lifestyle. Leaving our detox retreat you can expect to cleanse out your toxins, eliminate bloating, feel more energized, lower cortisol levels, help stabilize blood sugar levels, decrease cravings, lower your blood pressure, become more flexible, increase muscle strength, become more toned, feel lighter and walk with a deeper sense of calm and balance. With our guidance you will be ready and able to take on new lifestyle choices with transformational long term results for you and your family! I did.

Envision yourself enjoying sunny days, white sand beaches, palm trees and the tropics... This is your destination for your Total Transformation Retreat. Support your body's natural ability to heal itself with our complete package to reset and recharge mind, body and spirit through our detox program. You just pick how many days you want to spend in paradise. We'll take care of the rest! Side note: you will learn how to prepare your own juices and smoothies while with us, so this way you're empowered to take these new skills home with you for long term real results. It is way better to "learn how to fish [so to speak] and feed yourself for a lifetime," rather than someone simply handing you a pretty beverage and feeding you. 

While recharging at our beautiful retreat center in Boca Raton, you are welcome to enjoy daily yoga classes, join in on our yoga school’s in depth yoga teachings or just relax in our hot tub and resort style pool. Perhaps while you are here you will choose to experience community classes in the park,  evening drum circles just one town away, sunrise beach meditations, field trips, intro to tai chi and more!

We teach Sadhana Yoga, the Yoga of Spiritual Practice and the asana practices of Vinyasa, Hatha, yin and restorative flow. Our approach is experiential, contemporary and eclectic. We bring to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons still relevant today.


In-depth detox program includes guidelines and support the whole way through as we ease you into preparing for your juice fasting your first week. You will do an elimination diet, learning how to make smoothies and veggie broths, and then equally important you'll learn how to emerge back to the world of food your last week with us so you can take your healthy lifestyle home

We empower you to learn how to blend and to juice and what nutritional benefits you'll enjoy as a result of these new skill sets for life
