Are You on the Verge of Burnout?

It’s not uncommon for C-Suites to experience physical and emotional exhaustion, along with feelings of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.  Burnout can also deplete your body of the precious nutrients it needs to assist you in performing at your best.  We will share with you proven skills to biohack burnout keeping you at the top of your game!

Want to Address Your Current Health Status but “Never Had the Time?”

Do You Experience Insomnia?

Your Executive Room is outfitted with all the essentials for the perfect nights sleep. Experience a blacked out room with aromatherapy oils emitted and special plants designed to decrease stress and increase relaxation giving you the perfect night’s sleep.

Your Journey

Executive IV Nutrient Therapy

Guests will receive one Executive Stress Rescue IV drip over three days. Drips are customized to each person based on their Metabolic Assessment and symptoms they present with. Executives may arrive post trade show, jet lagged, suffer from migraines, under severe chronic stress or need immune support.

IV Therapy allows for 100% absorption, something you can’t receive from taking a daily vitamin. Oral supplements are sometimes not enough during times of high stress.

When you’re physically stressed you increase your stress hormones (Cortisol), which can lead to hypertension, belly weight gain, low mood and fatigue. The mood elevation and calming vitamins combine to mellow out your stress and boost your health naturally.

Neuroemotional Technique for the Executive

Elite Retreats International understands that most executives need a fast, painless way to reduce stress and that is precisely what this modality is geared towards doing.

NET is a mind-body technique that uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress. NET is a tool that can help improve many behavioral and physical conditions and is extremely effective in reducing stress.

NET Practitioners are nearly unlimited in their ability to address the physical and behavioral stress-related conditions of their patients. These conditions include headaches, body pains, phobias, general anxiety, self-sabotaging behaviors, organ dysfunctions and so much more.

This looks incredible...

By the end of the retreat you will find yourself
elevated from fatigue to feeling at the top of your game!

The Executive Room

We all know how important sleep is, but it’s the first thing that gets sacrificed when under pressure to meet demands and deadlines. Sleep is a highly active time for brain function and brain development and allows the body to recover from stress. In today’s fast-pasted society, we find our brains are overstimulated, stressed, and tired, making sleep even more important.

Coronado Island Marriott has upgraded rooms allowing you to experience the most restful and restorative’s night’s sleep. These specialty designed blackout rooms are lavishly outfitted with aromatherapy and plants proven to alleviate stress and promote a restful sleep.

Elite Retreats gives you a permission slip to get a great sleep!

The Executive Workout

Exercise is one of the most important ways to maximize your brain, both physically and mentally. Coronado Island is the home of U.S. Navy Seals training base. Keeping with this theme, Yvonne will guide you through two TRX workouts designed specifically for you, the executive.

Good stress, such as exercise, is shown to help improve sleep, increase energy and improve neurotransmitter balance. These things, among many other benefits, help keep you happy and focused. Your TRX workouts and Zenga sessions are geared towards improving stress levels and revitalizing the body.

The Executive Menu

The Executive Menu has been artfully created specifically for YOU. Nutritionist Yvonne Kohsel and Dr. Krakora have worked closely with Marriott’s Executive Chef to provide you with a cuisine that puts a premium on both taste and health. We understand that in times of stress, many vital minerals and nutrients can be depleted from the body.

You will experience meals packed full of antioxidant-rich produce and other foods that will boost your immunity, quiet your mind, and delight your palate. All meals are deliciously organic, free-range, grass fed, gluten-free, Paleo and Diabetic friendly.

This looks amazing!

The top 6 reasons why you wouldn’t want to miss this retreat.

IV Nutrient Therapy

This cutting edge technique allows the body to receive and 100% absorb vital nutrients that are key in reducing inflammation, promoting sleep and energizing YOU. It is a safe and effective modality used all over the world in leading integrative clinics.

Neuro-Emotional Technique

Countless studies show that stress affects the body. We see direct correlations between mental stress and high blood pressure as just one example. Its clear that more stress reduction strategies are a necessity for the busy executive. Neuro-Emotional Technique has been proven as an effective modality to lower stress.

It’s all about you!

Elite Retreat International’s Energize the Executive retreat will give you time away from the hustle of your busy life. This downtime is designed to give you the relaxation that your body is craving.

In a recent study 75% of executives report their happiness, health, home and work performance are negatively impacted by stress. Elite Retreat International recognizes that anxiety and stress reduction is a very real need for most leaders. The Coronado Island Marriott is the perfect place to unplug and recharge your battery.

Spa Treatments

Massage therapy does wonders for tightness in the body that is often a result of stress. Each retreat participant will receive two 80 minute massages geared towards revitalizing the body and mind.


Zenga is a fusion of pilates and yoga bringing you a unique mind-body modality that incorporates creative, lively, exploratory movements based on the latest research in neuromyofascial training. Yvonne will guide you through a playful yet powerful mix of three-dimensional circular and wave-like patterns designed to stimulate the fascia and take stress off the joints. The workout puts an emphasis on proper breathing and posture and vary in tempo, load and intensity. You will benefit in all areas of wellness, from muscular strength, endurance and mobility to stability without rigidity. Most importantly, you will develop an increased sense of self.

Food is Medicine

Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” many many years ago and while our culture seems to have forgotten this, it doesn’t make it any less true. Your body functions on the building blocks it has been given; the food you eat. The menu has been customized to refuel your body. Don’t worry, this isn’t a “diet” and you won’t feel deprived. Rather you will feel energized and ready to get back to your life at a 100%.
