The Brain Health Retreat

Sunday March 26 - Saturday April 1, 2023

Protect your brain for life with mindful movement, nourishing food and meaningful connection. Treat your brain to an energizing week on the black sand beaches of Panama. Join your hosts Dr. Annie Fenn of Brain Health Kitchen and Stacy Fisher of Fisher Fitness for a one-of-a-kind program focused on cultivating the habits of a brain-healthy life while relaxing at the stunning Sansara Surf & Yoga Resort.

Why should I put effort into my brain health? Because the science is clear; healthful, vibrant aging means taking extra special care of your brain. A proactive care plan can slow down the aging of your brain, and with it, help you stay sharp for decades to come. And, the earlier you begin, the better for your brain. We will break down the science into small actions you can take home to create mindful intentions that will last a lifetime.

Mindful, nourishing and meaningful.
A week designed to
  • Protect And Nourish
  • Your Brain

Dr. Annie Fenn is a physician, chef, and founder of the Brain Health Kitchen, the only culinary school of its kind focused specifically on fending off age-related cognitive decline. She teaches the Brain Health Kitchen method of cooking throughout the U.S. and abroad, with an emphasis of neuroprotective ingredients and brain-friendly cooking techniques. Her mission is to help you take care of your brain while still eating delicious food.

A 28-year resident of Jackson, Wyoming, Dr. Fenn practiced obstetrics and gynecology, with a specialty in menopausal medicine, for over 20 years. As an active member of the Alzheimer's prevention community, she serves as a science advisor for numerous non-profit organizations.
