This experience will allow you to integrate these powerful practices into your daily life to create more balance and capacity for your purpose and passions.

Purpose

This is a retreat for all helping professionals to experience connection and co-regulation with one another through yoga, awareness, self-inquiry, and much-needed self-care for self-repair. You will also learn about non-duality and experience the exquisite “one-ness” of it all. 

All levels of experience with yoga and meditation are welcome!

Modifications and choices will be present in various styles of trauma-informed yoga geared towards increasing connection to the wisdom of the body (interoception) and the quieting of the mind. Learn yoga and breath practices to return to your window of tolerance, recharge, and connect on a deeper level with self, life, and others. Practice savoring the art of stillness, a requisite for going inwards to find the gold within.

Recharge Your Soul

Take home the knowledge and novel skill sets to create an enhanced connection with your Self, your purpose, and your clients.
