Need a weekend away – for the sole purpose of focusing on Y-O-U? 

On the first weekend of October 2018 you can take the opportunity to sink into a personal refuge in the stunning hills of Ojai Valley, California. Enjoy a customized 3-day retreat with practices that are profoundly relaxing and rejuvenating, and connect with wonderful, supportive, like-minded women in the spirit of self-care. Spiritually reconnect, align and walk away with practical tools which will help you feel more empowered and uplifted in your everyday life.

 Acknowledging that we live in a world of heightened expectations and a long list of to do’s, we want to help shift the paradigm of living to a more present and powerful state.

With that, here’s a sample of what’s on tap from Friday, October 5th to Sunday, October 7th:

  • Restorative and empowering yoga practices

We want to support, connect, uplift, and empower women! So what are you waiting for? Come own, be, and ROCK who you are as we celebrate, motivate and elevate each other. You deserve this.
