About the event

Join us for a day where serenity meets sisterhood exclusively for women yearning for a pause from life's demands. This gathering is an invitation to immerse yourself in a deeply nurturing healing experience.

We'll begin our day with play - an invitation for participants to  trust, relax, & explore their creativity with a bit of improvisation.  In our women's circle, you'll be guided to set your intentions, explore what liberation feels like in your body mind and spirit through gentle yoga asana practice, ancestral healing, group akashic reading, sound healing and a ritual to seal in your practice to carry your intentions back out into the world.

This one day retreat is designed to spark personal liberation, build community connection and support you on your path to healing. We invite you to join us for a day of fun, personal freedom, relaxation, and the rediscovery of joy.

During this retreat you will experience:

  • Improv
  • Gentle Yoga
  • Akashic Records & Ancestral healing
  • Soundbath
  • Community Building
  • Personal Liberation Ritual

At the beginning of our program we will review our community agreements. If you'd like to review them in advance, you can review them here. 

Participants are encouraged to bring a yoga mat, blanket, bolster and any other items needed to relax comfortably. Lunch & light refreshments will be served. If you have specific dietary needs or allergies, please send an email to
