Prepare for your retreat

Hello Ladies, we are so excited to welcome Fall 2019, in the Poconos, with you!

Please remember to pack a mat and comfortable clothes. I had went to Himalayan Institute recently and I can you tell the country roads have twists and turns that come quick in the last 30 minutes or so.  Stay aware. The trip out of Jersey is just under 3 hours, but please consider Friday traffic as well and the sweet Hatha Yoga class at 5pm to unwind (levels 1,2,3). Then we'll enjoy a bite and meet for our first session. We have so much in store for You! xo Zoe

A full schedule + Itinerary is provided the week of retreat.

Finding peace and alignment is nice, understanding your triggers and cultivating healthy boundaries around them is also pretty nice. 

But, tapping into a source of fire, passion, purpose, and intention is EVERYTHING. 

Let’s find that and move from there



All monies are non refundable once paid, however credit for future workshops, classes, and retreats is available
