Imagine standing in your personal power, strong & confident in who you truly are, without fear or apology.
Accept yourself, as you are in all your glory!
Let your light shine bright! Goddesses you are so worth it!
"You are Enough. There is absolutely no shame in being who you are. You can be as soft or as strong as you want to be. You can be both. You can share & be vulnerable, or you can contemplate & be introspective. Whoever you are & whatever you want to be is absolutely ok. There's no need to compare yourself to anyone else because you are the only YOU. You are rare. You are golden. You exist for a reason. You are completely worthy of being loved just as you are." Alison Wu
This intimate Women's Weekend retreat is for all women and those identifying as female who are looking for a gathering designed to heal, reconnect, & transform. Through yoga, breath, meditation, & energy work, we will face our shadows and embrace our light. Together we will stand strong in our strengths and soft in our vulnerability. This will be a deeply healing & transformative journey. Give yourself the gift of self care. Experience a weekend of connection, renewal, & self discovery.
Our Weekend includes:
-Yoga sessions that work with the qualities of each Element, emotions, and the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Classes will be a blend of Hatha and flow with energy and breath work.
-Daily journaling and discussions on the Elements
-Energy work and breath to release stuck emotions
-Delicious catered meals to balance the 5 Elements
-Individual 30 minute Reiki session
-Free time to yourself in nature (with options to explore Bowen Island)

Each yoga session will focus on one of the 5 Elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Your body houses your suppressed thoughts & emotions. Clearing emotional energy is so important for a healthier you. The work will center around our Shadow Self, finding awareness and acceptance of our sometimes unconscious patterns. This allows us to develop a good relationship with our inner child and become the best version of ourselves.
It takes courage to cultivate/nurture the Self & I'm honored to partner with you on your healing journey!
