Our retreats are all about three foundational components that live at the very core of having a high-powered, vivacious life: the ones that keep our bodies healthy and our confidence strong. It begins with the power of nutrition: understanding food, how it interacts with your body, and how that interaction manifests itself in places that are so much more important than your waistline. That knowledge extends to the kitchen; learning the skills, recipes, and tactics to cook with confidence amidst a busy schedule. But to bring it all together requires presence; the ability to sit within your own skin and listen with honesty, love, and compassion to what your body is telling you.
I liked the variety of topics and how they supported each other. I liked converging wellness of both the mind and the body, then putting it into practice with the cooking. I also loved the camaraderie of the amazing and diverse women both running the retreat and attending it!Rebecca Sly
I really liked how the retreat encompassed a holistic approach instead of narrowly focusing on one area or issue. I loved the dynamics of Laura, Caitlin, and Danielle. They balance each other out very well. It has been a truly enjoyable, eye opening, and relaxing weekend. I now have skills to look at situations with a different perspective which will aid in my ability to move forward and ‘to be mindful’. I can now look forward to preparing nutritious meals and do not feel so overwhelmed with the thought of it!Dianne Chin
The scenery and environment are incredible, the space is a really great choice! The classes were a great length and I especially enjoyed the nutrition/cravings class. It contributed a lot of new information I didn’t know before, which inspired me to try something new!Malene Jakobsen
I loved the collaboration that happened with our group. The sessions all had overlapping themes that helped to tied it all together. Laura, Danielle, and Caitlin are amazing.Danielle Adler
It’s so clear to me how much the instructors all care about what they’re doing! The content covered was so relevant for the entire group. All of us were able to connect to it and share about it. I really enjoyed connecting with the women here. I will definitely attend another.Sherry Morrison
It was wonderful meeting such a variety of women from different backgrounds, careers, locations, etc. No matter who you are, you have a commonality and can relate to what someone else is going through. It’s helpful to experience that.Rosanne Demas
I liked having an expert in each area: mind/body, nutrition, and cooking. It really helped to tie all the lessons together on how to get to a healthier place in your life.Cindy Vincent
It was a great opportunity to meet women from very different backgrounds as myself, which provided me the opportunity to get to know myself through getting to know them.Molly Muzevich

The Weekend Was Amazing
We had an incredible weekend and a life-long bonding experience. The flow of the weekend intentionally creates a natural safe space to learn and grow from the welcome reception, through meals, classes, and free time, to the final workshop. This is the goal for every single one of our retreats. Ready to dive in at our next retreat?
