Announcing Our 2016 Weekend Retreats

Announcing our 2016 Weekend RetreatsWe get it – so many women can benefit from our program, but simply can’t attend due to time limitations, family obligations, financial restrictions, work responsibilities… and so on.

So when we first decided to begin hosting special weekend intensive programs, we knew there’d be interest – but we had no idea how much!

Over the last year, we’ve learned that our weekend programs are exactly the thing so many women need to help them start or continue on their journey towards an improved relationship with food, exercise, their body, and – themselves.

So we’re extremely glad to announce our all-new upcoming weekend programs for Winter/Spring 2016! (PS. Keep reading for information on a free weekend giveaway!)

Led by experts in their field, each weekend with provide you with the knowledge, practice, strategies, and support you need for finding success on your journey towards better health and well-being.
