Retreat Sample Schedule


Friday

Retreats start on Friday evenings with a meet and greet at the retreat location. From there, we’ll have dinner and our first group empowerment activity.

Saturday

Saturday morning starts however is best for you! Want to start with our scheduled group pilates class or an individual walk/jog through the local neighborhood? Want to sleep in a bit because it’s the first Saturday without the kiddos in a while? Both are welcome on this retreat! Breakfast is served at 9am, followed by two workshop sessions, lunch, and then free time to work on goals, relax, exercise at your leisure, or bond with new friends. Saturday night we’ll join again for dinner with another empowerment activity.

Contemporary Portrait Session

During the Saturday afternoon free time is when we’ll take turns getting each of you to hair + makeup and then to your fun mini photoshoot. (There will also be an early morning spot and a Sunday post-retreat spot). Final images will be available within 3-4 weeks, and here’s the best part…

Every lady will be receiving ALL of her final images available for digital download to save and keep and share, included with the price of the retreat! 

Sunday

Sunday morning feel free to do some self-guided exercise before we all meet again at 9am to enjoy one last breakfast together, revisit any future goals you set during the retreat, and then head home. 

Accommodation

Unless otherwise noted or offered, each retreat will cap at 5 attendees to keep these workshops small and the most helpful on an individual level. Room and board (5 total meals) are included in Retreat price.
