Ready to Get Radiant From the Inside Out?
Jan. 7th-12th 2018
Let's stop the madness for a few days and soak up some much needed sunshine, rest and nourishing foods at Soma. Our leader, Megan Ulrichs is a holistic nutritional therapist with a masters degree in the subject of healing through food. She will guide you through daily workshops on understanding the ways of healing foods that cleanse and protect your body throughout life
The world we live in is full of technological distractions, to do lists, meetings and responsibilities that often leave little room for meal time or meal planning and is an outright disconnect from the food that is supposed to feed our souls. This wellness retreat is designed to help you disconnect from the chaos and reconnect with nature, self and the cert foods that nourish your mind, body and soul.
Healing and Thriving Through Food Inside and Out
Megan's food philosophy is this: she abhors labels as they force a person to define themselves with very rigid terms, and beat themselves up if they suddenly eat something that doesn’t fit that definition. Therefore, Megan never wants to have to label what “kind” of diet she subscribes to. Being dogmatic about anything, for Megan, just doesn’t work. Being flexible does. She also believes that every person is unique and has individual needs when it comes to diet, lifestyle and health. In considering each client’s needs and listening to their stories; Megan has developed protocols to fit those needs in an effort to enable her clients to heal and or thrive through food. So to answer the question, Megan eats almost entirely organic food. Her diet consists mainly of vegetables, sustainably and humanely raised animal proteins, seasonal fruit, some beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds. You’ll even catch her nibbling on the occasional tortilla chip or decadent dessert but mostly you’ll see her sipping green drinks, broths or exotic herbal teas. The only label she'll slap on herself is “whole-food-lover”. Nothing makes her feel better, think better, and look healthier than whole foods! And the big bonus? She never counts calories nor do she expect her clients to do so. She knows that if you follow her lead, your body will thank you by falling into a state of balance and health, naturally.

Megan Ulriches MSHN Holistic Nutrition Counselor
Megan received her undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Exercise Science in 1992 and worked as a personal trainer developing individual exercise and nutrition plans until I began my career as a full time mom. While staying home and raising as she says "my three crazy fun boys", I began to turn my nutrition skills into useful tools (unbeknownst to me or my family at the time). It wasn’t until my middle son was four years old, and his teachers began telling me that he needed to be on Ritalin for Attention Deficit Disorder that I knew things needed to change.
Megan poured herself into holistic nutritional healing; and over the course of a few years completely changed her and her families diets and in turn had teachers and fellow moms asking her, “what have you done? My how calm your son has become!” “Do you have him on medication now? He is a different child!” After self educating for another 8 years, Megan decided to pursue a masters degree in holistic nutrition from Hawthorn University. Megan's 3 years at Hawthorn University played an integral role in advancing her knowledge in healing through food. She feels it is an honor and privilege to help others feel those same powerful health improvements as her son did. Since earning her Masters in Holistic Nutrition and working at Spring Integrative Health, she has worked with clients who run the gamut of individuals with digestive issues, children with learning or behavioral challenges, to endurance athletes, and pregnant women.
Come and spend this time with Megan and leave healthier, happier and more radiant from the inside out!
