Retreat Details:


9am: Welcome and Centering

9:15am: Self-compassion session with Donna Rae Jones

Self-compassion is strongly associated with emotional well-being, less anxiety, depression and stress. An introduction to this practice to transform your relationship with yourself through the notion of “attending and befriending.” During this session we are developing a mindful, warm, and kind friendliness to oneself.

10:15am: Daily Ritual Practices with Elle Brodsky

In regards to self-care, we don't have to do everything, every day - but every day we need to do a little something. This session will introduce some simple concepts of pranayama (breathwork), mudras (hand gestures), and self-massage that can be incorporated into mini-self-care practices daily.

11:00am: Grace & Gratitude Restorative Yoga with Bryna Parker

Scheduling time to rest peacefully in your body is an offering of grace. When we grant ourselves permission to support the physical body in a relaxed posture, it becomes easier to release tension and stress. This allows more space for us to welcome acceptance and gratitude. 

Choose Your Pricing Option

We are committed to equity, and offer our educational programming on a sliding scale basis. Please select the rate that reflects your current financial position. 

20 spots are available at each rate.



The highest tuition cost reflects the true cost of training. If you have access to financial security, own property or have personal savings, you would not traditionally qualify for sliding scale services. If you are able to pay for “wants” and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, you have economic privilege and power in our community. This price is for you.



33% Scholarship

If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and are not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc., you belong here. If contributing this rate for training would be difficult, but not detrimental for you, this rate is for you. 



66% Scholarship Rate

If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, and are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, you probably belong here – and you deserve a community that honors your price as an equal economic offering as the person who can pay the highest tier.
