nourish: a fall self-care retreat 

Saturday, October 13 to Sunday, October 14, 2018

Siena Center | Racine, Wisconsin

Register for the full-weekend or one day.

We are excited to host our first-ever local retreat this fall at the Siena Center in Racine. The Siena Center is located near Wind Point along Lake Michigan and is just 25 minutes south of Oak Creek. The grounds include walking paths with woods, natural prairie, views of Lake Michigan, and an outdoor labyrinth.   

We wanted to create an easily accessible, affordable retreat that enables you to "get away" yet still be close to home. You can register for the full weekend or pick a day. Early bird registration is now live!

The intent of this weekend is to give you the opportunity to Nourish, to set aside time to fill yourself up with yoga and community. The activities scheduled for the weekend are open to all, no matter your experience level with yoga. There will be space built-in throughout the weekend to allow you time to self-reflect. 

See below for a sample of what we have lined up for you. Please note that we are finalizing a few details, and will keep you posted on any updates.
