At the end of the day, this is how we hope you feel...

Break from large group work and spend an hour on your mat with beloved yoga instructor and Harvard University's resident mindfulness teacher, Kate Harrington. Empowering poses are accompanied by the healing sounds of crystal bowls. Michelle Marie of Sound Goddess Healing raises your vibration with her angelic musical infusion.

Leave your heels at home! "Athleisure" is the dress code for the day -- yoga pants and cozy layers, comfy flats and bare feet. To reflect your bright future, we ask that you consider wearing bright colored clothing!

Bring a water bottle, yoga mat, and notebook or journal. While you are welcome to pack snacks, coffee, tea, and vegetarian buffet lunch are included in the price of the retreat. Expect plenty of gluten and dairy-free options.

This is a nonstop day, so if your body requires frequent bio breaks -- or your business requires frequent phone breaks -- we suggest sitting at the end of a row or close to the exit. Book sales and signings will be scheduled throughout the day, but not during main stage presentations.

... a little gutsier, a little riskier, a little sweatier, and totally supported by the outstretched arms of your fiercely strong sisters. Rise up, women. Let's do this!

The first 25 people to register take advantage of reduced tuition of $279, so sign up right away! The next 50 registrants pay discounted tuition of $355. The rest of our retreat guests pay full price of $379. It pays to act now! Grab a friend or a business associate and take action!
