The VeraVia Four Pillars of Health

Every wellness retreat at VeraVia integrates these four pillars for a well-rounded and lasting transformation.


Achieving fitness looks different for each person who comes to VeraVia, which is why we create a comprehensive, safe, and evidence-based fitness plan for everyone we work with.


We place special emphasis on discovering and addressing the root cause of our guests’ underlying medical concerns. Our healthcare team uses both functional and naturopathic medicine to transform your overall wellness.


At VeraVia, you’ll work with our holistic nutritionist to establish a healthy eating plan that fits your personal needs. While you are here, you’ll enjoy organic, farm-to-table meals to provide your body with high quality, nutrient dense foods.


We incorporate the latest psychological and behavioral techniques to help our guests create long-term sustainable behavioral changes. Positive change begins within.

What is Your Path to Wellness?

Our guests arrive at VeraVia seeking answers for a variety of wellness challenges. Below are some of the most common that we can help you achieve.

Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Healthy weight management goes far beyond simply "dieting", as many of our guests have found. We can help you determine the underlying causes of your weight struggles and tackle them holistically and sustainably.

Sustaining a High-Intensity Career

We meet a lot of high performers who are suffering from the burnout effects of a stressful career. We can help you refocus on health and build a life that is balanced and sustainable. Your body and mind will thank you.

Getting a Fresh Start

As a guest at VeraVia, you can expect to leave feeling like a new person. Our beautiful resort is a sanctuary for those who need refreshment and renewal. You will walk away with renewed confidence, peace, and a zest for life.

Managing Health Issues and Chronic Pain

The life-changing effects of VeraVia's programs are most tangibly seen with our guests who experience ongoing health issues and pain. We have helped many come off medications, get their mobility back, and revolutionize their health when they believed there was no hope for change.

Our Mission

Our fitness resort goal is simple: to provide you with the maximum results possible during your stay and empower you with the knowledge and a personalized plan to get continued results after you return home.

“VeraVia was truly a life changing experience for me!”

I learned more in the two weeks I was there than I had reading and listening to all the diet and health information out there for years prior. The key for me was how personal the program is designed to be and how dedicated each and every staff member was to instilling confidence in me. I had so much love and support from the very first day. I would go back in a heartbeat!
