Fort Lauderdale, FL, May 25, 2009 --( Beginning September 14, 2009, the At Ease Retreat will begin sessions for this total body rejuvenation retreat. Exclusively limited to 14, participants of this new wellness adventure will eat, sleep and breathe health and fitness, meditation, holistic nutrition and stress free spa treatments for six nights or more. Aiming for the perfect blend of body slimming exercise and body renewing sessions, Vita Vie Retreat will push clients with shallow water walking and running, Pilates, sunrise beach yoga, body sculpting at the beach, classes on stress reduction, meditation and anti aging practices and more. “We’re going to be educating people on their bodies, their environments and what they can do to protect themselves from disease and how to promote long, healthy, vibrant lives. It’s also time to learn how to rid our bodies of stress to we can function the best we possibly can. This tough economy has taken a toll on many of us in a number of ways. We’re mentally and physically stressed and we need to help ease that tension for our clients” says retreat owner, Margot Rutigliano. Long days of hard work will be rewarded with healthy, gourmet spa meals, candlelit cobblestone walking at sunset on the sun deck, relaxation and meditation. “It will be the perfect combination of kick butt workouts and total relaxation,” adds Rutigliano.
