Are You Really Living Healthy?

Are You Really Living Healthy?

You go to yoga three days a week, have a smoothie for breakfast every day and try and eat your veggies. You believe you’re living a wellness lifestyle, but are you really?

With all the information available at our fingertips today it should be easy to know if something is healthy or not, but it isn’t. Often toxic ingredients lurk in the everyday products we use, and in food that on the surface seems healthy.

Samantha Harris, former co-host of Dancing with the Stars and Entertainment Tonight thought she was the picture of health. She felt good, she ate well and she worked out.

Then breast cancer came out of nowhere.

Only 40-years old at the time, Samantha had to fight with doctor after doctor who said she was fine, when her gut told her something was wrong. It was this experience that led her to look hard at her health, and she soon realized that foods she thought were healthy weren’t, and that everyday products she used were toxic. She realized that to be healthy today you have to be an informed consumer and your own best advocate.

Your Healthiest Healthy Retreat is designed to empower all women to learn what healthy really is and to take charge of their own and their families health. Samantha will be leading several talks on healthy nutrition, products and relationships. She will also lead you in the workouts that have made her a covergirl of over 10 fitness magazine covers.


Media personality and co-host of Dancing with the Stars and Entertainment Tonight, Emmy-winner Samantha Harris is also an author, certified trainer, cancer survivor and unstoppable optimist. Her stage II invasive breast cancer diagnosis at age 40 inspired a quest for answers about how we can all improve our overall health, prevent chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and autoimmune disease, and understand their underlying causes. The resulting book, Your Healthiest Healthy: 8 Easy Ways to Take Control, Help Prevent and Fight Cancer, and Live a Longer, Cleaner, Happier Life, (named one of People Magazine’s Ten Best New Health books) translates comprehensive, research-backed knowledge into an easy-to-follow action plan for maximizing health, energy and happiness for life.

A certified personal trainer and recognized fitness expert, Samantha has appeared on the cover of numerous health and fitness magazines, including Shape, First for Women, Fit Parent, Muscle & Fitness, HERS (a record four times), Pilates Style, Wellness, Women’s Running, and National Ambassador for the Susan G. Komen and American Cancer Society. 

Along with her husband, Michael, Samantha founded the online community Gotta Make Lemonade ( to inspire positivity in the face of adversity

Nurture & Nature

We’re here to nurture you inside and out, with nutritious meals and serene surroundings.


Our bodies work hard for us. They carry us, shelter us, show us the world. At CIVANA, we honor our bodies with good, real food—whole, organic, made to sustain us and our planet. Our recipe is simple: fresh fruits, vegetables, and grains for mains, with meat (if you choose) on the side. And flavor? It’s the focal point. Our culinary team works hard to maintain integrity—to buy locally, seasonally, and sustainably. Because if it’s real, you taste it. And savor it. And then, come back for more.

Wellness & Spa

The new 22,000 square foot spa is designed to take you back to the origin of SPA –  Salus Per Aquam (Health through Water) by offering a choice of hydrotherapy immersions that include a tepidarium, hot/cold walking pool, cold plunge shower and saunarium. The ritual of “taking the waters” is intrinsic to the traditions of spa along with alternating hot and cold exposure. A pre and post ritual to ground the body for the healing therapies.

Civana Carefree Resort

CIVANA was born out of a desire to make wellness more expansive and approachable.  Grounded in the philosophy of wellness through oneness, we believe in the sustainable interconnection of the individual, community and natural environment.

CIVANA is a place for the traveler to rest, nurture, nourish and discover in both playful and impactful ways.  We encourage all to Seek Deeply, Travel Lightly, Live Fully.
