Our 2017 Women’s Retreat was an incredible experience for many who joined us. Read about what some of the participants had to say:

“Your retreat was one of the most wonderful things I have experienced!  It was so nice to get to know such interesting women.  The place was perfect.  I came for the yoga and that was the best part.  I look forward to participating in more of your classes in the future.” ~Geri

Bani’s retreat was rejuvenating. I felt great afterward, it was freeing and cleansing together. I came home with a new perspective. Bani’s retreat was informational and beautiful. I highly recommend it! Plus, the food was awesome! ~Joanne Mongeau

Why Go On a Retreat?
The reasons for needing a retreat vary from person to person. Some seek rest and renewal, stress reduction, core-level healing or a yearning to expand. Others come to attune with Nature, to center and deepen their spiritual journeys, or to better handle life transitions.

How Can Going on a Retreat Impact My Life?
Not only are you worth it, but the ripple effect of this ultimate self care and healing will benefit your family, friends and co-workers as well! When we heal from within, what we give to others comes from that overflow of self-love. Giving becomes energizing and effortless.

Life is constantly shifting and changing which requires us to constantly shift and change, release and readjust.  It is a continuous unfolding and a life long journey of peeling back the layers to return to our essence which is pure and perfect.

If you are seeking to facilitate significant change, to gain more clarity, release greater life potential or unearth your best self, this retreat is for you.
