The Retreat

The Retreat Everyday enrichment for older adults.

The Retreat offers exceptional adult day and therapeutic services to individuals and families of the Sandhills region. We embrace the opportunity to provide our members with life enrichment, support their family care partners and champion the community’s efforts in meeting the needs of the aging population. Our mission is to allow adults to age in place in their own homes, provide respite for care partners, reduce the costs associated with care to remain at home, and delay, defer or eliminate the need for institutionalization.

Martin has been practicing, teaching, and demonstrating tai chi and qigong for the past 5 years. His sharing and teaching is an integral part of his effort to continue to learn and grow.

Registered Yoga Instructor Cindy Boals is going to share her expertise with our members at The Retreat on July 9th and 12th!

Cindy practices Mindful Movement, which she describes as designed to increase awareness of the body and breath, both in stillness and in motion. The movements are done seated on a chair or at times standing, when able, using the chair for balance and support. They are planned to develop strength, flexibility, balance, and concentration. The breath work is vital to nurture the spirit, as it allows us to drop into stillness, and to practice a state of relaxation.

We look forward to her visit!
