Extended & Advanced Stays at Skyterra

What are the Benefits of a Long-Term Stay?

While our recommended minimum stay is one to two weeks, you are encouraged to stay for as long as you would like. Guests choose Skyterra for many different reasons, and no two wellness journeys are the same. We offer a variety of personalized support options during stays that are three weeks or longer.

New Approaches to Motivation - Ditch the Scale


You know that "lose weight fast" gimmicks don't work – so what does? Let us teach you. In one or two weeks at Skyterra, you're exposed to the basic fundamentals of long-term weight management. With a longer stay, you expand on this knowledge and receive additional one-on-one support to help you craft a new lifestyle.

Losing weight isn't about diet or willpower alone. And it's not just a matter of physical health, but emotional and mental health as well. Misleading health information and well-intentioned but self-sabotaging habits can complicate things even further. We'll identify the factors affecting you and work through them together.

Illness Recovery


Cancer, chemotherapy, accidents, injuries, surgery, medications – your doctor manages these, but when it comes to improving prevention and bettering your quality of life, the burden falls on your lifestyle.

Reclaim your vitality with a long-term stay. Nurture your strength, mobility, and energy levels under the caring eyes of experienced professionals. Through personalized coaching, you can create nourishing new habits that will further your health, recovery, and longevity long after you leave our property.

Grief & Trauma Recovery


The emotional burdens of grief and post-traumatic stress weigh down our bodies, minds, and hearts. It is essential to care for yourself as lovingly as possible as you bravely process the past and push forward into your new life.

When you're here, all you need to do is be kind to yourself. Join us for some mood-elevating cardio classes and calming breathwork, or spend some solo time relaxing by the lake. No matter what, you are encouraged to honor all of your needs and find the things that make you want to embrace life again. Through private guidance sessions and the sharing of stories, you can learn ways to acknowledge the past without letting it take over.

Wellness Retreat Lessons


A retreat is an excellent way to optimize a work sabbatical or contemplate a change in careers. Ground yourself so you can make your next decisions from a centered and rejuvenated mindset.

Work-related stress is one of the most common driving forces behind a career change or occupational burnout. It also has enormous impacts on your health. Open yourself up to new stress management approaches. You’ll set forth on a path of greater balance, vitality, peace, and self-assuredness, which will serve you both professionally and personally.

Self-Care Tips to Prevent Sandwich Generation Burnout


Self-care isn’t selfish! You are there for the people in your life – supporting them, encouraging them to be their best, maybe even nursing them through injuries or illness. But in order to serve others, you must take care of yourself first. Take time to get to know yourself again and get to the bottom of what keeps you going.

As the old saying goes, “You can not pour from an empty cup.” A retreat helps you fill that cup. While you’re here, we take care of you. You are free to focus on cultivating strength, energy, resilience, stress management strategies, and overall better health,



Self-esteem and body image issues complicate our relationship with our selves and our bodies. A long-term stay gives you time to replace self-defeating thoughts and actions with positive affirmations and behaviors.

Our team will help you define and achieve wellness goals that actually serve you instead of just wearing you down. Learn to increase your confidence and change your mindset, warding off depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and self-sabotage in the process.


“I decided to attend the retreat after a difficult 10 months following the death of my wife. I arrived exhausted in every which way ... I left renewed. My physical stamina has a new baseline. My nutritional knowledge has broadened significantly. My psychological resilience has begun to return. There are insufficient words to fully describe my satisfaction with the entire gestalt of the retreat, and I unreservedly recommend it."
