    Happy Clients
    Check out what some of our Bees have to say about Bee The Wellness.
    The trips really cement your purpose and intentions, whether it's your nutrition or movement or mindset. You meet and bond with such awesome people. I think that when I've had a rough time and felt less positive about my ability to stick with a healthy life, the connections I feel towards my trip-Bees has helped me stay the course.

    This retreat was a whole new experience for me and I absolutely loved it. Being able to go to a place with people who are all on the same path in life is amazing. Learning what works for yourself/others and being able to take the knowledge home with you is a truly amazing opportunity. You will make life long friends on this inspirational journey.

    It exceeded my expectations. I had been to Primal Con, but never had such an intimate experience where I really feel like I got to know the other participants. The wonderful thing is to meet people and realize how much we all had in common. Great to be able to bond with like-minded souls. This truly was a life changing weekend for me in mind, body and soul. **Also, I think a really important thing to know is that it is really great going solo. I was afraid I might be left out not being there with a partner or friend, but I totally did not feel that at all. I felt really comfortable knowing that other people were also there on their own and that you didn’t have to “have somebody” to do all the activities. Sometimes it’s intimidating to travel to something like this on your own without the security blanket of having a friend along with you, but I can safely say that I never felt alone or not part of the group and it was great that other people were there on their own as well!
