  • Abundant & Balanced Women's Yoga Retreat

    ~ because balance is an "inside job" ~

    finding balance within the abundance of doing what we love

    March 16th-21st, 2018

  • Why this Retreat?

    Meet Your Retreats Leaders and listen to why Dawn & Tara feel called to lead this!

  • Abundant but in need of Balance

    • Are you a successful woman with a passion for what you do, but your success is leaving you feeling overwhelmed with not enough time in a day?  
    • Have you noticed your mental focus has become foggy, and your mind constantly wandering and keeping you up at night?
    • Are you finding yourself short tempered and stressed with your family?
    • Has your health become more of an issue rather than a priority because you have no time to even think about it?
    • Does your life lack fun and spontaneity?

    If you answered "yes" to the above, then this retreat is for YOU!

  • 6 Days of Connection, Awareness, Balance & Transformation

    The MDC Retreat Experience

    Day 1 - Sisterhood Initiation

    New Experiences

    You will experience the true essence of the Divine Feminine aspect of yourself by discovering peace and stillness within the excitement of our Sacred Circle Opening Ceremony, with your feet grounded in the sand and the sound of ocean waves whispering in your ears. You'll then experience Yoga Nidra, and the calming effects this form of mediation has on your mind, body & spirit.

    Day 2 - Grounded in Awareness

    Awareness is the first step

    Each morning begins with an invitation to experience yoga specifically designed for exploring balance within your body. You'll learn the "Whys" of your struggle to turn off the mental chatter, and gain specific tools for "How" to overcome the stress through breath work and conscious awareness.

    Day 3 - Daily Practices

    Change your habits, change your life

    When the mind, body & spirit are incongruent with each other, you will experience stress, sickness, mental fog, emotional upset and pain in life. Here, you'll learn how your own habits create your own suffering, while gaining a deep understanding into how your physical body communicates with you what your mind simply wants to ignore.

    Day 4 - Lack of Boundaries Create Stress

    Saying no is necessary for your health

    What energies are you injecting into your relationships when your mouth says yes, but your heart says no? Discover why saying no is important for your health and how always saying yes can create imbalances within your body, mind & spirit.

    Day 5 - Your Balanced Living Blueprint

    Finding balance is an inside job

    You find yourself juggling to find balance in your life, but changing your calendar won't help you succeed in finding balance. Day 5, you'll unearth aspects of your life that require your focus, and without knowing these aspects and having the tools, juggling to find balance may persist. You'll leave this retreat with this Blueprint for success in your hands!

    Day 6 - Release, Receive & Unify

    Divine Feminine activation

    Letting go of the "need to know", receiving what is intended for your highest good, and unification within self and our sacred circle. (undisclosed event)

  • Benefits You Receive
