Self-Care with a community is even more impactful than doing it alone. When winter calls us inward, there's nothing like a sweet retreat for a whole weekend to come back home to yourself through intentional time to reflect, refresh, and restore.

The focus of this weekend getaway is rest. Throughout the retreat, many offerings are included. In addition to several Restorative Yoga practices, you’ll be able to enjoy fun slow flow classes, hiking, leisurely walking, delicious food, quiet time, reading, coloring, napping, and connecting with good humans. Participate in as little or as much as you wish. Massages are available as well for an additional cost.

Carve out time for yourself for whatever you need this weekend to be. You can be with people or you can retreat alone in peace. Activities are suitable for anyone, and no yoga or meditation experience is necessary. Let’s rest together!

CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is the perfect treatment to pair with a rest retreat. During our time together, your nervous system will finally have the space to breathe and settle. Support and deepen that experience for your nervous system with a CST session. Nicole intuitively combines CST with Somatic Experiencing® to help your body and mind gently unwind. This will be a light-touch hands-on session on a massage table. This will facilitate the bracing patterns in your nervous system to find safety and let go, creating a state of rest, integration, and presence.

Nicole is also a Somatic Healer & Coach specializing in women's work and supporting entrepreneurs. Learn more about her bodywork offerings at and her coaching offerings at


Build Your Own "Tiny Dancers” Suncatchers 

A warm welcome to Terry! A new addition to this year’s winter retreat. Terry will lead us in a “sparkly” Playshop event. You will make two “Tiny Dancers” Suncatchers. Using a huge variety of crystal beads and other sparkly attachments, you will be guided to create your own beautiful works of art to hang in a sunny window and wait for the rainbow dancers to appear! We begin with a light and calming meditation, allowing you to create an intention to weave into your Tiny Dancers.

Once you have completed your own unique and beautiful works of art, you will receive an energy reading on the completed piece. These are fascinating and allow you to learn how to direct your energy for your highest good.
