5-Star Wellness Retreat

Stress Management At Skyterra

Life is full of stressors. Learn to manage your response.

Cultivate Resilience With Mindfulness & Self-Care

You have probably heard it before: stress is toxic. Stress ages us. Stress leads to chronic pain and health problems. Stress leads to illness. Stress makes us irritated, depressed, anxious, impulsive, and downright unhappy. But we need something more than knowing stress is bad for us – we need to know what to do about the stress in our lives.

We address that need at Skyterra. Setting aside life's obligations and committing to a personal retreat is the first step. Once you're here, not only will you have the opportunity to unplug, relax, and breathe easy, you will also learn about the stress response, the factors that affect it, and techniques for managing your own response to stress.

The Skyterra Approach to Stress

Unplug & Reconnect


Our educational lectures and workshops explore the body and brain's stress response. Understanding neurobiology is an empowering place to start. You'll grow to know the importance of:

UNPLUGGING. Take a break from the constant call of technology. When you step away from your screen, you also step away from stress and stimulation.

POSITIVE PERCEPTION. Stress is a form of resistance. The opposite of stress is acceptance. We'll teach and demonstrate ways to adapt toward positivity and openness.

Mind & Body Nourishment


Experience the brain-body benefits of movement, nature, community, meditation, and real, delicious foods.

FITNESS. Exercise is a known stress reliever and mood booster. Each week, you'll enjoy a variety of expert-led strength training, cardio, and yoga classes. Breathe and stretch in our three-season "treehouse", challenge yourself with circuit training, or join in a caveman-inspired workout outdoors. Classes are small and accommodate all levels.

FOOD. Meals are chef-prepared and dietitian-approved, made according to your dietary needs and preferences. They are served community-style so that every guest may feel at home.

BREATHE EASY. Daily breathwork and meditation classes calm the mind and help you connect with yourself. You'll learn a number of techniques to take home with you.

Relax & Enjoy Yourself


Recreation, socializing, and self-care are essential tools for keeping stress at bay. At Skyterra, you can try out new activities and opt into spa services and excursions to help you relax and enjoy yourself.

RECREATION. Seasonal outdoor activities are offered year-round. Waterfall hiking, stand-up paddleboarding, fly fishing, pool classes, and pickleball are a few of our favorites. We offer something for everyone!

SPA SERVICES. Our on-campus spa offers signature services that you won't find anywhere else.

EXCURSIONS. Take a field trip off-campus to nearby Brevard or Asheville. Explore the attractions and businesses that make western North Carolina a top tourist destination year after year.

Real Talk: Guests Talk About Stress

"I went to Skyterra Wellness Retreat for a break from a stressful situation and to learn more about lifelong wellness. From the time I was picked up at the airport to the time I was dropped off I felt like I was surrounded by caring and knowledgeable friends who would do whatever it takes to make my visit exceptional and to make sure I was able to take home my new found knowledge and sense of peace."
