Faithfully rooted


What to expect

Faithfully Rooted Retreats include the traditional aspects of a health and wellness retreat (fitness, healthy food, community and rest), but we know that in order to be truly restored we need something greater. That’s why every element of our retreat points back to rooting yourself in the truth of who God is, and learning how to live in a way that reflects that. We have witnesses freedom, joy, fun and friendships come out of each retreat.

Each day we offer a variety of fitness classes, chef prepared gourmet, healthy meals, teachings on finding greater joy, purpose and health in all areas of your life PLUS community and rest. We love to laugh and thoroughly enjoy the time we get to “retreat” so be prepared for a life changing and weekend!

We’re so excited for our retreat locations and dates for 2021. Regardless of where you live, if God is calling you to join us at a retreat we hope you can make it and that you believe He will make it happen for you to be there!  

Now, just one last thing: Imagine how your world could change if you jump into the adventure…Are you ready to invest in your health?

Portugal - Spain
(Retreat + Camino Hike)

September 6-16

I’ve experienced The Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage and combining it with our Faithfully Rooted Retreat I believe will be the most transformational thing we have ever offered. We will have 3 days in Porto, Portugal at a private estate where we will host our retreat sessions, yoga classes and eat amazing food. Then we will begin our 75 mile walk where you will have time and space to experience God in such a personal way. The scenery is incredible and along the way we stop for cappuccinos and picnics nestled in the beauty of Portugal/Spain. In the evenings we stay in charming hotels in quaint villages, and eat authentic cuisine making this truly an experience like no other. Sign up today. We will only take 16 “pilgrims” with us.

Michelle Spadafora

Hello everyone!

I am the founder and host of Faithful Workouts and The Fresh Table and I’m so excited to meet you at this retreat. I love that I can workout and cook with you through technology (Tv programs and online plan) but there will be something so much deeper about being together face to face. Of course I’m excited to lead a variety of workouts, lectures and discussions on topics around faith, fitness and food but what I’m really looking forward to, is getting to know you! To hear your story and hopefully pour truth over any lies that are holding you back from freedom, health, joy and peace.  I believe in this retreat because the only way to make lasting changes and start living the life you were created for is to first allow your roots to grow down deep into God’s love!

Denika (Spadafora) Ross

Faith and fitness have always been a big part of my life (I know that’s surprising considering who my mom is) For a few years I participated in long term missions programs, worked at a Christian summer camp, and through all my moving and traveling I did my best to go to church and pursue a relationship with God. Sometimes I struggled with doubting my faith because traditional spiritual disciplines didn’t always seem to draw me closer to God. Then two years ago, I started doing yoga each day and found that yoga helped me find peace and stillness amidst the craziness of my life. Since then, I’ve been hooked.
The movement of yoga helps me to quiet my mind and connect with God.

I wanted to learn how to share this experience with other Christians who were nervous about traditional yoga classes. I got my yoga teacher certification through Holy Yoga and was blown away by the way it magnified my faith and brought me both closeness with God, and boldness in my desire to share his love with others through yoga. 

Along with leading you through some scripture based yoga classes, I’m excited to have the opportunity to meet with you one on one to help you develop a personalized health plan! I’ve been studying for my Christian Life Coaching Certification because I love to sit and hear someone’s story and give them hope that they can do it!

I can’t wait to meet you and to partner with you for this transformational experience!

I have found from my years of coaching 100’s of Christians that almost everyone would like to experience more joy and peace. This discovery is what spurred me on to write The Joy Model . During the retreat I will walk you through the MASTER Plan that leads to lasting joy.

I am also excited to work with you on creating a life mission statement. When we understand our true purpose and calling it can inspire us to take better care of our health.

Don’t miss out on this life changing retreat. See you soon!
