Got Questions?

WE GOT ANSWERS!

"I'm thinking about coming alone...is this ok?"

Absolutely! YES YES YES! Going to a retreat alone can be extremely powerful and transformative. Common feedback we also receive is the welcoming, safe and connected vibe we create and the relationships you create on retreats sometimes turn in to lifelong friends. 50% of past attendees have come on their own.

 

"I'm not too experienced in yoga & meditation...is this ok?"

Another big YES! We welcome women of all levels and complete beginners too! Retreats are a great place to learn or to solidify established practices and routines. 

 

 

"Is there a what-to-bring list?"

Yes, once you reserve your spot, a Retreat information email will be sent out immediately and again 2 weeks prior to the retreat.

 

"What if I have dietary restrictions?"

Most of the food and meals are gluten free with vegetarian and vegan options. Send an email to befree@shawnathibodeau.com if you have any dietary restrictions to ensure that weekend's menu will accommodate you.
