Within this perfect sanctuary to unplug, you’ll let your heart take you from site to site as you uncover the magic in every step and on every path you take – whether it is a meditative moment at the Vortex Circles or contemplation at the Angel Sites or Water Wheel, walk across a Foot Bridge or refreshing moments by the Oak Creek – you will continue to receive inspirations and recharge your soul with wonder and magic.
These beautiful grounds will soothe your soul as you remember what it’s like to actually slow down and enjoy life.

After failing my qualifying exams, I was devastated. This led to finding a place that brought me peace and a feeling of coming home – yoga and meditation practice.
Already having a taste of the liberating feeling I experienced with yoga, I blindly followed my heart to embark on a yoga teacher’s training with the world-renowned yoga master Yogi Amrit Desai at the Amrit Yoga Institute in Florida. The spiritual rabbit hole I fell into lead to life-changing heart-opening experiences and awakening of powerful energy that I never knew was inside of me.
It was an accelerated journey of healing of my childhood wounds and for the first time in my life learning to trust my heart and my healing gifts that had been hiding behind doubts, insecurities and self-judgement.
After opening Gentle Heart Yoga and Wellness in 2014, I have been dedicating my life to supporting other people in developing trust in the healing wisdom of their body and breath and uncovering the place within them that is pure happiness, bliss, and wholeness.
It is my passion to help people reconnect to sacred heart and align with their soul’s true purpose. In the processes I guide my clients and students through, they learn how to accept themselves and to be liberated from insecurities and judgments and have a direct embodied experience of Divine Love.
I lead Women’s Yoga Circles and teach workshops and trainings, including a professional certification of Yoga Nidra (sleep-based meditation technique) aimed at helping people reconnect with the Source of unconditional peace and Love available to us all.
If your heart longs to break free of limitations that keep you small, I invite you to come to the magical Sedona with me!
Here is what I can promise. After 5 days in Sedona, you will feel:
💫 Rejuvenated, centered, grounded, connected to your heart and soul
💫 Inspired to follow your heart and share your gifts with the world
💫 Free from the past hurts and drama that held your energy stuck
💫 Confident in your unique gifts that the world needs
💫 Trusting in your connection to Spirit and the healer within YOU!
💫 Uplifted from heart-centered ceremonies and rituals and ready to share your renewed energy with the world
💫 Return home feeling relaxed, refreshed and inspired to take your life to the next level
If all this makes your heart sing, then you are in the right place and need to be at this retreat!
We will be an intimate group of maximum twenty three women. This is intentional for me to be able to spend maximum amount of intimate time with you as well as to allow for our group to really get to know one another and to work together.

Sedona is in the dessert where it can get cold at night and very hot during the day. In November, the average low temperature is 41 F during the night and the average high temperature is 68 F during the day. Without a doubt, one of the best times to visit these beautiful Red Rocks is during October and November. During the fall, the weather in Sedona is mild and enjoyable.
At the Angel Valley, the beautiful Oak Creak runs through the property where you will be able to see beautiful colors of deciduous trees accentuating the beauty of red rocks and the flowing pure water of the creek. The most magical location for taking pictures with your beautiful self during sunset to reflect your inner and outer beauty.

We’ll be sending out a more detailed “Don’t Forget Me List” a month before your departure.
We deeply believe in caring for Mother Earth and that each of us has the responsibility to consciously live in harmony with the planet, as best we can. This includes looking at how we eat, heat our homes, vacation, commute and travel. That’s why we support holistically looking at climate change and where we can reduce our CO2 emissions. Credible research shows, for example, that cows cause more CO2 “emissions” than cars or plane travel.
We recommend that you use a carbon footprint calculator to see your personal impact and reduce your emissions as you can. You can also participate in offsetting your carbon footprint by donating to or getting involved with environmental organizations you trust or well-recognized organizations that list certified and verified carbon offsetting projects. Every little act we take can make a difference and we appreciate your concern and awareness.
For us, we know the benefits of converging with life-minded folks in person, on occasion, who want to make a difference in the world, create online businesses and give back is priceless!
Here are three companies that you can refer to for offsetting your carbon units:
The planet is calling for our powerful presence and healing gifts to be seen and heard now. This requires looking at fear, doubts and insecurities in the eye and dismantling them one by one with support and loving care. After all, your gifts is what creates change in the world.
If you’ve been giving, giving, giving to others, but no one’s been giving to you, then this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to step outside your everyday routine and dive deep into your inner well of wisdom so you can return home replenished and ready to make a difference.
