Every day you have a choice about how you want to move, how you nourish yourself and how you want to feel. It’s up to you. Choose to feel awesome, eat nourishing foods, wear a smaller size, run a faster 10k, have fulfilling relationships with specific people in your life. Choose to get happy. And now you can… choose to live The Shorter Approach!

Wellness Retreats and Online Programs

Michele Shorter will guide you to optimal health with a daily agenda as you have fun, get flexible, get strong, get your heart rate up, set goals and create a focused plan to guide your choices — while reserving time for you, in paradise.

Come solo, or bring your girlfriends or your mom. Together we’ll unplug, move our bodies, breathe in the sweet air and savor our surroundings while reserving time for mindful relaxation. 

Whether you choose to join us in Costa Rica, Tofino, BC or online, all you have to do is…. “Just show up!”
