Recreational Therapists help enhance the quality of life through recreational activities and leisure balance. The recreational therapist provides physical activities that have numerous benefits ranging from improved cardiovascular fitness and muscular endurance to increased energy, self-esteem, and overall sense of well-being. For a variety of reasons, including depression and anxiety, many people do not include exercise as part of their life. Through education and practical experience, the Retreat defines and highlights the benefits of an active lifestyle. Group participants will have the opportunity to engage in aerobic conditioning, strength training, flexibility, and core exercises.
