Highlights from our 2016 Spring Retreat

The weekend of April 8-10 Core Wellness commenced its annual Spring Retreat at nearby Lansdowne Resort & Spa in Leesburg, VA. Comprised of staff and patients, the group of 20 enjoyed an educational weekend focused on learning, relaxation, and socializing with likeminded individuals dedicated to overall health and wellness.

The retreat opened with a full day of spa services at Lansdowne’s Spa Minérale followed by a gourmet dinner and fireside chat at the resort’s outdoor fire pit. Over the next day and a half, participants enjoyed a robust series of educational Core Talks on body healing, detoxing, stress response, postural effects, bone and tissue health, and more. Participants also engaged in various Pilates demonstrations and personalized core and strength-training exercises, including the use of yoga ball and yoga strap props. There was also ample opportunity to enjoy the resort’s amenities, including a full gym and classes, pools, health clubs, locally grown food, and beautiful grounds.
