I recently had the honor to co-host my first retreat experience. We asked the attendees to share about there experience- here if what they had to say.
Please describe your overall experience of your retreat.
"I loved my experience on this retreat. It was very out of my comfort zone so I was going in with no expectations. At the end of the retreat I just wanted to stay and continue more of the meditations. I absolutely loved it and will be forever grateful for you both."
"Magnificent! Feeling restful and restored!"
How would you describe your experience of Yoga Nidra?
"I loved it. I never thought I could allow myself to get to that point of relaxation. Focusing on feeling my body really helped take my focus off the thoughts that would normally run through my mind."
"My experience changed every time we practiced. Enjoyed practicing in the group. Two-voiced was cool, as was incorporating sound."
My experience was amazing and opened my mind to a whole other world that I want to continue in my every day life."

BODY THERAPIES- currently unavailable
ANOINT ME abhyanga; the ultimate oil treatment
Experience therapeutic energetic bodywork. Through various assessment tools I am able to tune in and formulate an anoiting oil to balance the body, mind and heart. Anoint Me is a restorative, nourishing therapy that combines qualities of Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine principles with 5 sense therapies to create a harmonious session. A warm herbal oil blend is applied to the body in a soothing and rhythmic massage. Every oil therapy uses authentic oils and herbs which are carefully selected and customized for you. These herbal infused oils focus on detoxifying your body and eliminating the stored-up cellular waste. Health and longevity depend upon the proper nourishment, assimilation and elimination of the body tissues as well as the mind. Improper metabolism and circulation causes waste products to accumulated in the different systems of the body, such as the nervous, circulatory and muscular systems. Through proper oleation and massage of the entire body, the metabolic and enzymatic functions are stimulated to assist the body to detox, reducing stress and allowing it to work at its optimum potential.
