We all know the vast health benefits of movement and physical activity, but how do we get started? How do we approach movement safely and sustainably? How do we overcome roadblocks that keep us from moving with ease?

When we unite breathing, movement, and relaxation, the results are empowering, revitalizing, and transformative. Learn to honor your embodied inner wisdom in this weekend at-home retreat—reveal for yourself how movement can be a potent medicine.

This 3-day personal retreat will provide you with the supportive and nourishing container to jumpstart your daily routine. Take time to reset, connect with nature and yourself. Renew and reboot with balanced movement that is stretching, strengthening and most importantly relaxing.
