"We travel (Retreat) not to escape life, but for life not to escape us." ~ Unknown

Retreats offer an opportunity to create a clearing from our busy schedules and many layers of demands.  I have been creating and leading retreats to help individuals step away from habitual living into a space that's nourishing and renewing. A space of retreat can be found in faraway places as well as in our most familiar surroundings.  Each retreat is curated with thoughtfulness and care to bring together amazing destinations (including right where you are), empowering yoga practice, delicious food, quiet reflection, enriching explorations, and supportive community.  All retreats will have an emphasis on inner exploration, and most will include outer explorations of nature and culture.  Some will have a dedicated focus on theory and practice.  There is a retreat for everyone.  Come join me on a retreat, and meet someone new - the best version of yourself and the amazing others.
