Women's Retreat for Deep Self-Care

Thursday, April 21  - Sunday, April 24 

Finally, it's YOUR time
Relax  ✨  Reset ✨ Recharge

In a world fixated on doing, you need time to just be.
 
When’s the last time you took a real-life “time out”?  Not just a few minutes, but DAYS to step away from all you do and focus on your well-being?  To rest, rejuvenate, and reconnect with your heart's desires.  To strengthen bonds and make new friends. Time to digest all that’s happened.  And find the inspiration you're seeking.
Taking time for self-care is not a luxury.  

Self-care is essential to your physical, mental and emotional health.  Especially these days, with "burnout" being so common it's classified as an official medical diagnosis!  You need to take time.  To feel your best.  To be all you are meant to be, for you and for everyone who counts on you.

Take time for a care-free, expertly guided adventure inward

Picture this.  A nourishing 4-day getaway, entirely dedicated to your well-being.  Intentionally infused with just the right yoga, insights and introspection to shake something loose.  To awaken your curiosity and creativity.  Gain a fresh perspective.   Discover what's holding you back.  And experience yoga practices and the right tools to reduce stress, improve your focus and feel more joy and gratitude.  So you can return home, well-rested, refreshed, and confident that you can rise above it all.  

  • Arrive, settle in, then calm your body and mind with Yoga to Unwind, to set the stage for what's to come.

  • Each morning, ease into the day with a "just-right" practice tailored to you.  Not too much, not too little.  Intentionally designed to invite space, release stress and find inspiration.

  • ​Grow your yoga skills with confidence under the guidance of a seasoned professional (hands-on assists as needed)

  • Learn to adapt yoga poses to fit your unique needs, so your at-home practice gives you just the right challenge, without unnecessary strain

All practices & sessions are optional on retreat.  Do as much or as little as you need.

My Mom & I took our first yoga retreat together! In the opening yoga practice Julie asked "What does it feel like to do less than you can?"  As someone who's spent most of my life trying to achieve the next thing, that really spoke to me.  

 

This retreat was a gift I gave myself.  It was so nurturing to be away from all the "To-Dos"at home, eat delicious food (made & cleaned up by someone else!) and take space to dream about the life I want for myself and my family. I left feeling more aligned with my own priorities.  And I'm learning things like how to do less. Quite an accomplishment for this overachiever!

As a Type A it can be difficult for me to take time for myself.  But I decided to make that a priority, and signed up for my first retreat ever. There I met amazing women from all walks of life and was surrounded by positive energy. We ate amazing healthy food and went home with great recipes.  But even better, I learned to appreciate my body for what it is.  Julie taught me how focusing on my breathing can be so calming yet powerful when I'm stressed, anxious or can't sleep. In fact, yoga has been so calming for me that my sister recently asked me why I was so chill. My answer: “Yoga with Julie”.

We'll stay here, in the soothing calm of nature

No matter your age or yoga experience, taking time for a retreat rejuvenates the mind, body and spirit.  I'm in my late 70's wasn't the oldest one there.  I enjoyed the yoga, health topics and meditation for looking inward.   The meals were delicious and healthy.  In the confinement and depressing times of Covid this was a much needed get away to relax, meet new people and enjoy lively conversation.

With the challenges of pandemic and a fast-paced, demanding career I was feeling stressed and a bit overwhelmed.  But until I came on this retreat I had no idea JUST HOW MUCH I needed this!  Time to decompress, really relax and let go of tension I didn't even realize I had. And it was SO FUN to make new friends who felt more like family by the time we left. In fact, we all wanted to stay longer!
