Join me for a full day woman’s retreat on connecting to peace through the practices of meditation, gentle yoga, inner child work and breathwork.
This day retreat is for any woman seeking self-care time and looking to explore practices that helps them connect to their true nature - peace, love and happiness. The practices explored throughout the day will also assist with stress reduction, patterns of negative thinking and working with challenging emotions.
Throughout the day we'll explore what keeps us from feeling peace and happiness within and then move into practices & teachings that help to connect us back to our true nature and help us more clearly understand the workings of the mind.
This day retreat includes meditation exercises, breathwork, journaling & reflection, gentle movement + group teachings and group discussion.
Leave with a toolbox of skills and practices you can use for returning to inner peace at any time.
