I was lucky enough to be invited to the Tammy Stokes Spring Detox at the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Spa in Atlanta. A group of 10 women experienced workouts, seminars, and spa treatments to prepare ourselves for spring. In full disclosure, I was extremely skeptical. I had concerns about not eating "real food" for an entire day. I like to know what my next meal is at all times. That being said, I was not only not hungry during the event...I was FULL! Tammy's drinks were delicious and really did keep me full all day. I will be ordering some to integrate into my regular diet as soon as she updates her website with a new order form. (She outgrew her old distributor!) The workouts were grueling but she was awesome. No woman with a headset screaming "Pick up the pace, ladies" here. Thank God! Tammy emphasized personal tempo and growth. I was especially thankful that she took some time to describe a proper push-up and to show us her signature West Coast Push-Up, which I believe I equally love and hate ;)
Here are some photos from the event:
We met in the Tei Pei room for mini- workshops and lunch between our workouts and spa treatments.
The view behind our table looked out at the English Gardens.
A beautiful green covered arbor in the English Gardens.
Perfectly cultivated plant beds.
A relaxing area around the reflecting pool.
A few rams to graze...
Plentiful covered outdoor patio
Covered outdoor (more formal) seating
A quick photo of the relaxation room in the spa. Wanting to respect the privacy of the other guests, this is the only photo I took inside the spa area. (These ladies were with my group and didn't mind this quick pic.)
