Avail yourself of the amazing team of yoga, dance and fitness teachers at High Mountain Hall, gear up for outdoor adventures such as hiking, biking and kayaking in one of Maine’s most pristine playgrounds, or just spend time by yourself, napping or sitting by the ocean. Learn to cook nutritious, tasty meals; explore alternative health regimens; and find your Food Fingerprintâ„¢ for optimal energy and well-being.
You can expect to leave this 5-day program with a clearer idea of what your unique body needs and how to delve more deeply to fine-tune your awareness.” Holly

Late morning workshop with Holly, walking the spiral of your own unique Food Fingerprintâ„¢. “When you know the path to take to discover what food-style really works for you, confusion is replaced by feeling empowered and vitally energetic. Finding your Food Fingerprintâ„¢ allows you reverse premature aging, stay off medications and increase your energy.”
