Are you ready to take your yoga practice to the next level while falling in love with what life is offering right now? Re-connect with yourself no matter what stage of life you are at. It is wonderful to practice with women from all different generations, backgrounds, and levels. There is nothing like the support of women. Our goal is to create a safe environment where self discovery is possible on every level – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
The retreat is designed to provide a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for women to explore their inner selves, gain clarity and confidence while realizing that our voice matters.

Throughout the weekend, Colleen will guide you through two yoga classes a day. Each class involves a safe, fun, and expertly curated sequence that will leave you in a state of quiet alertness and clarity. You will realize the power of strength and vulnerability. Every class includes pranayama, meditation, and journaling.

The retreat includes delicious and nourishing meals prepared with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

There will be time for spa treatments, reading, writing, hikes, and sweet, funny, deep and profound conversations with amazing women.
At “Yoga for Life: Know You Are Enough”, you will have the opportunity to step away from the stresses and responsibilities of everyday life and discover what was never missing – your beauty and wisdom.
