7 Day Prep / 5 Day Retreat

16-22 Sep (Home) 23-27 Sep (Retreat)

ReEmerge is a two week immersive and transformative program for women. Science has proven that total IMMERSION is the BEST way to make a lasting change in your mindset and your life. This retreat provides you with that foundation via a set of tools that you will be able to pull from throughout your life.

But the retreats are so much (contact info blocked) losing weight and eating differently is not enough. If it were, you would not be here trying to understand why nothing has worked or at least not for very long. 

A ReEmerge retreat will TRANSFORM you by arming you with ALL THE TOOLS you have been missing. We will do this together by learning new tools, releasing fears, and reawakening your innate creativity and confidence to improve all areas of your life. You will reemerge with a strong, new foundation from which to grow your health.

The NUMBER ONE TOOL is learning to fast safely, effectively, and without fear. It is THE key in overcoming and conquering the control food has over your weight, your health and your life. We will END the programming we've all had that says you need 3 meals/day, you should eat at set times, you need food for energy, and that you must feel guilt and shame when you enjoy an indulgence. We will ERASE AND REPLACE those FALSE notions.

The NUMBER TWO TOOL is a new way of eating that will END the diets, the deprivation, and the time-consuming methods of counting calories, counting carbs, counting macros, writing in food diaries, paying for expensive shakes and supplements or packaged "food" programs, and the guilt when you just can't keep it up. Toss ALL that.

A massage, a soak, and a salad only go so far. This is not a spa. It’s a system reboot.

Can I share a room with a friend?

Yes! There are 5 casitas with 2 twin beds in each. These are offered at a lower cost due to the fact that you are sharing and have less privacy. The queen rooms are not for sharing at the Dominican Republic event.

How do you coach me during Week One?

Week One is conducted at your home. Upon booking the retreat, you will immediately receive your prep materials to review. You may begin your preparations at ANY time, but the week before the retreat its time for me to step in, advise, coach, and get you PUMPED for what is about to happen!! These 30-60 minute sessions will happen 3x during your prep week as either phone calls or group video chats where we will begin to get to know one another. You can also email me with questions at ANY time and I will get back to you ASAP with help and/or answers.

What do we eat and drink while at the retreat?

During prep week you will be cutting back carbs and sugars by following a gradual keto-based plan with some intermittent fasting. Once at the retreat, your fast begins. We will learn to make an electrolyte water to keep us hydrated and happy. There will also be black coffee and green tea available. There will be no food provided, however it is accessible should there be an emergency, which is HIGHLY unlikely.

What do I pack?

I will provide you a complete list of things to bring, including suggested items, in your Prep Guide, but mostly you can pack light and casual clothing. Do not bring or wear valuables.

What happens if there is a medical emergency?

The UNAP Los Cacaos (hospital) is located just 20 minutes away by car. It is a small, but highly rated hospital.

How do I know if I'm ready for this?

That's easy! Let's talk about it. Doesn't cost a thing to get all your questions answered and get a vibe from me as to whether you feel its the right time and I'm the right one to get you there. Just click here to fill out the Contact info, answer the 3 questions, and I'll schedule with you a good time to talk.

How do I get there?

Feel free to get to the Dominican Republic however you choose, although most choose via airplane. The Santo Domingo International Airport is 2 hours from the retreat and transportation to and from the retreat will be provided for you once you have booked.

What is your cancellation policy?

You have 7 days in which to cancel your 12 day ReEmerge program. All money will be refunded minus a $75 fee for the proprietary materials that you will have received immediately upon booking.

What happens after the retreat?

On the final day of the retreat, each person gets a private one-on-one sit-down consultation in which we develop a personalized plan for going forward using all the tools you've gained. This plan will be one that we will both create and make sure it is both doable and enjoyable so you may Live Life Awesome!!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
