Description

Are you LIVING or just alive ? Do you desire more human connection?

Chances are, like most busy men and women, you quietly resign yourself to your ‘place’ at the bottom of the totem pole. Everyone else requires so much of your time, your talent, your advice, your energy, your love and commitment—you don’t even make it on your own to-do list! What you deserve is a reboot, and the invaluable gift of ME-TIME. Being in this environment allows you to go deep within, quiet mental chatter, and experience profound rest and inner silence.

Brigitte Bartley uses breathwork, meditation, affirmations, mindfulness, positive self-talk, and more to guide you during this soulful escape to reset your body, mind, and spirit. We get our best confirmations, ideas, and enlightenment when we disconnect from our daily routine, give our mind and body the rest it requires, and have fun with like-minded people—they challenge you to grow just be being around them.

Your retreat is carefully guided and crafted to give you as relaxing and transformative an experience possible. Experience morning yoga, nature walks in the mountains, plant-based dining, and a supportive atmosphere for your inner journey. You’ll emerge recharged, refreshed, and ready to take on your responsibilities with greater focus and joy!

Open to everyone; all levels of yoga.
