September 22 - September 23

$175 - $225

It’s time! Join us for the next YMC Connects – OFF THE GRID

This edition will be more of what you love (personal growth and local shops), but with the added benefit of having nutritious food provided, beautiful scenery and a whole day to yourself! Not to mention, the option of mindful supper, meditating under the stars and sleeping in a tipi!

So what does this retreat look like you ask? (The schedule below is subject to change. Specific instructors will be announced July 15. Some instructors include: Kelsey Schiavon, Janis Isaman, Lisa Hillyer, and Stacey Irvine.)

There are a lot of yoga retreats, so why is this one different? Our goal is whole health, for Moms, for women who are just getting started into this whole crazy world of Mindful Health, Self Care and Beauty. We get it. There’s a lot of information! This weekend will be about exploring different practices, teachers and ways to achieve Mindful Health.
