Chi of Life Weight Loss Retreat

Based on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Chi of Life Weight Loss and Health Retreat runs unique live-in programs to help people lose weight and, most importantly, achieve overall holistic wellness.Chi of Life Weight Loss and Health Retreat owner Gwen Stewart says the approach is simple,yet completely different to many mainstream “cookie cutter” weight loss programs.

“We work from the inside out,” Gwen explains. “We start with a live and dry blood analysis by a qualified pathologist to identify the areas that need support such as the adrenal,thyroid and lymphatic systems,oxygen levels, inflammation and digestion.

“Our aim is to restore balance and give the body support where needed because when you strengthen and restore your foundation,the weight loss will just happen without going on crash diets. When you feel alive with energy and vitality, this positive feeling will be your motivator to live a life in good health and make better choices. I believe this is the first step to weight loss and that no professional should consult a client without knowing what’s going on inside that person’s body first.”

As well as this complete system analysis,Chi of Life Weight Loss and Health Retreat offers 6, 13 or 20-day programs featuring organic meals (each participant’s personalised individual metabolic typing diet is based on the bio chemistry of their own body), up to five hours of training per day (think kayaking, stand-up paddling, bike riding, scenic hikes,bootcamp, boxing, pool activities, tennis, yoga, Pilates), wellness and nutrition consultations, cooking classes, a mindset workshop, infrared sauna,Oxy chi machine session, magnesium baths and spiritual and energy healing.

For Gwen, keeping each retreat limited to eight participants means a tailored, targeted, personalised approach for every individual. With practical advice, education and workable solutions,participants can go back into their ‘normal’ life with confidence.

Chi of Life Weight Loss and Health Retreat is proud to have transformed hundreds of lives. Take 54-year-old female Terri for example. Terri was 120kg and admitted she never, ever liked herself and was, in fact, “disgusted” and “hated” herself before attending one of Gwen’s weight loss and health retreats in February 2014.

“I went in thinking all I needed was weight loss,”Terri says. “But I quickly learned it was more important to focus on my overall wellness.”

Terri is now down to 86kg and is a self-professed“wellness warrior”.

“During the retreat I couldn’t even walk across the road to the beach without stopping a number of times to catch my breath. I cried one day because I couldn’t even kneel down to the ground and get myself back up again. But now I have heaps more energy. I love myself again and I now always put myself first.

“This health retreat changed my whole life,” Terri says. “No, it actually saved my life. I have been reborn.”

Chi of Life Weight Loss and Health Retreat is suitable for men and women of any age, weight, size, fitness level and specialising in obesity programs for people over 100kgs. Gwen encouraged anybody suffering lethargy and weight gain to look into Chi of Life Weight Loss and Health Retreat for long-term, sustainable weight loss, improved energy and vitality.

“Because when you think about it, without your health and energy what else do you have?
