Optimal Living Education & Retreats LLC and our team of experts invite you to bring your family (up to (4)combination of children and/or adults) for a day of holistic lifestyle education workshops and experiences in nature at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia. Experience is the best teacher.

Laze the autumn days away or try your hand at watersports on Robin Lake, featuring the world’s largest man-made white sand beach. Leave your cares at home and allow yourself for one day to explore a lifestyle that fosters more happiness and health.
Holistic Lifestyle Workshop options include: partner yoga (adults and children), introduction to meditation, mindfulness nature walk, the art of touch (beach-side couples massage), financial wellness, eating to live and special children’s activities.
Make this staycation less than 2-hrs away from Atlanta, Montgomery, Columbus or anywhere in the Chattahoochee Valley a day trip.
