My name is: Ingemaud Gerber.
I'm known for being: a family physician at Inliv Full Circle Health. I live my passion for wellness through Evolve Retreat Co. by educating and providing people the opportunity to make better lifestyle choices.
I’m hosting a retreat called: The Great Canadian Wellness Experience.
It’s located at: Retreats are hosted in the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada. We have five to six five-day retreats throughout the year at different venues. Each venue is chosen for a unique reason and purpose. They include Azuridge Estate Hotel, The Crossing at Ghost River, Sunshine Mountain Lodge and Baker Creek Mountain Resort. Locations include Banff, Lake Louise and Priddis, Alberta, Canada. This year’s retreat dates are May 20-24; May 27-31; July 15-19; August 12-16; Sept 17-21; and Oct 1-5, 2018.
I was drawn to this destination because: I am truly drawn to the mountains. They provide us with the time and space to focus on our individual health and wellness. Nature is a power force; gratitude is instant. I think that we forget how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world. There are so many beautiful places to explore and countless adventures to be had.
This retreat is special because: Our retreats offer a world-class, scientific approach to health and wellness. We bring together a team of experts to guide you on your journey, touching on many different aspects of lifestyle medicine including nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, yoga, health education, lifestyle mentoring sessions and active outdoor adventures in a beautiful environment. Retreats are customized to each guest to create a unique experience. There is no one-size-fits-all with health and wellness.
One thing you can’t miss is: your chance to look after yourself and enjoy laughs! It’s amazing how quickly relationships build in this environment. You often forget that you’re putting in work because you’re having the time of your life!
Your body will thank you because: Although you have been on a holiday, you will come back refreshed with a new outlook. You will be motivated to make life-changing adjustments to the way you do things on a daily basis. And you’ll realize quickly: You can be healthy. Health and lifestyle is a choice. Simple changes are easily made to achieve whole-body wellness.
I never retreat without bringing: my hiking boots, hiking poles and my yoga mat.
Retreating is part of my process because: I want to offer people a place to start. I see it as the first step to pressing the reset button and truly starting to take care of you. Stepping out of the business of daily life is an investment in personal development, growth and well-being.
