Cleanse Your Mind Body & Spirit

Juice Cleanse Retreat

Cleansing is a crucial part of any health and weight loss program. The stress, pressure and exhaustion of daily life can interfere with normal elimination and repair and these stressors urge the body to hold on to metabolic waste. When you add this toxic burden to the toxic chemicals we are all exposed to in our environment and food supply, it becomes increasingly apparent that optimal health requires a reduction and removal of body toxicity.

Water Only Fasting

We are delighted to announce that Balance for Life is one of only three centers in the U.S. (and the only East coast oceanfront location) that provides fully supervised water-only fasting. Water-only fasting is one of the most profound, natural and effective tools for cleansing and health recovery and the warm, gentle breezes and Florida oceanside location of Balance for Life Retreat make it the ideal environment for fasting care.

Our Mission

LET US NOURISH your MIND, BODY and SPIRIT through our nutritious food program, exercise classes, health lectures and spa services. And, we are located right on the beach for your enjoyment, comfort and pleasure! Restore and maintain health and lose weight without feeling deprived.

Relax and destress. It’s all here for you at Balance for Life Retreat.


It’s safe to say that if you want to live a long and healthy life, regular exercise is a must. But it must also be enjoyable to stay committed and performed as an almost daily habit. From our yoga to aqua classes, body sculpting to tai chi, no matter what shape you’re in, you will find lots of enjoyable fitness classes for all age groups and fitness levels at a Balance for Life Retreat.

Every day you can choose several activities or just one (or none), it’s your choice. We care that everybody gets the workout they need depending on their age and health condition.


We only use the highest quality organic ingredients, locally sourced whenever possible.Eating healthy plant-based foods helps lower our risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and other diseases common to our western civilization.

There are many reasons to eat healthy, not as a temporary diet but as a long-term lifestyle solution that will provide the necessary nutrients your body needs to create new cells, eliminate toxins, and optimize your immune system every day!


Spa services soothe the soul – if you’re a seeker of balance in your life you need to add regular bodywork to your health regime. Combining soothing massage, reflexology, acupuncture, or other treatments is both invigorating and deeply relaxing. These treatments increase circulation, release fatty deposits under the skin’s surface and flush metabolic waste.

Escape to paradise – indulge in these ancient healing arts to balance physical and spiritual well-being. Treatments are done in your room or in the poolside cabanas by qualified and registered practitioners.


At Balance for Life we are committed to teaching and sharing a diversity of practices that increase mindfulness and mind-body balance. These practices come from a variety of ancient traditions that incorporated internal body awareness and energy balancing techniques for reducing the stress and tension that can have such negative debilitating effects on our lives.

Daily classes and workshops will be offered for our guests only in yoga, tai-chi, qi-gong, longevity breathing, mindful meditation and a variety of other relaxation and meditation techniques. In addition, relaxing and therapeutic massage will also be available only for our guests.
