Nurture & Nourish Retreat

This women's weekend retreat was the very first retreat that I conceived of, created, executed and taught all myself.  Honestly, I was so nervous!  I went outside of the usual retreat center arrangement and found our lodging myself.  I brought on my friend and aaaaamazing cook Julie to cater the morning and evening meals.  I scouted both hot springs, and found the perfect fall hike.  It had all the components of something I would love... but still - would they like it?  Would it be good?  Could I manage teaching and taking part in all the adventures?  How would the house be?  I was nervous! 

It went so well.  Even better than I could have imagined!  It was a beautiful bunch of women, the food was amazing, the house was a huge hit and so lovely to stay and practice in, and I think the yoga delivered and intention practices were pretty damn on point.  I definitely had a little moment on the porch after everyone had gone.  A moment of massive gratitude and appreciation of the absolute beauty of our mountain home.  Here are some photos to give a peak of the fun.  I'll definitely be doing this one again next year!
