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.

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!”

Smile at everyone.
Prepare your own food.
Make yourself a priority.
Take an hour a day to sweat.
Rest and read.
Keep it simple.
