I have always wondered what it would be like to go to a spa for an extended period of time so when The Oaks at Ojai invited me to spend a few days with them I jumped at the opportunity to do this as one of my 49 Before 50 First Time Experiences. I had envisioned a peaceful, quiet retreat where people walked around in robes and whispered to one another. This was certainly a relaxing escape. However I would call it more of an adult summer camp than a fancy spa. I participated in a variety of fitness classes, ate amazing meals, met some inspiring women and even found time to chill in the pool.
