Women's Retreat for Deep Self-Care

Friday Nov 11th - Sunday Nov 13th

Finally, time for YOU!
Relax  ✨  Reset ✨ Recharge

In a world fixated on doing, you need time to simply 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 rediscover your heart's desires.  To strengthen bonds and make new friends. Time to breathe, clear your mind, nourish your body.  And be inspired to live a life you LOVE!
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 deserve time.  To feel your best.  To remember what matters most, be all you are meant to be, for you and for everyone who counts on you.

What my students say

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 spacious calm on Lake Tainter

Julie’s spring retreat was an amazing reprieve and gift to myself…an opportunity for total self-care and a much needed reminder that I am “enough” just as I am; worthy and deserving of abundance. I left that peaceful lakeside setting feeling cared for on a deep level, both physically and emotionally…and inspired to carry that feeling forward to the everyday business and demands of life.
