About This Event

$250 per adult $108 per child

We often think of Yoga practice as a quiet, sacred time away from the excitement, energies, and moods of our children. However, that is not often the reality for most mothers. Treat yourself to a peaceful weekend of wellness and self-care supported by a community of mothers.

During this weekend, you will have the opportunity to engage in self-study and reflection in regards to your own patterns and stories of motherhood. By becoming aware of these patterns, you can reimagine the roles and interactions you have as a mother.

Through curated workshops, asana (posture) offerings, panel discussions, and group engagements, you will be given the space and tools to cultivate peace as a mother. Pranayama (breathing exercises), bhakti (devotion), and mindfulness practices will empower you to cultivate peace and intention in the midst of harm and suffering. A team of dynamic mothers will help to lead, support, and fortify the group along the way.

Children of all ages are welcome. They are invited into the space and sessions are staffed to support the needs of mothers and children.

This workshop focuses on mothers. So presenters will make sure the kids will have space to be themselves, engage in what the group is doing, and also engage in activities just for them, such as craft making, dancing, nature exploring, and free play space. If you have questions, please contact (contact info blocked).

If coming with kids, please contact our Ashram Reservation Center at (contact info blocked) or (contact info blocked).



This workshop was AMAZING! Kelley created an inclusive, non-judgmental space for moms to relax into rejuvenating ourselves while releasing myths that were harmful to our children and us. Kelley’s energy and strength allow her to support mothers navigate the softness and strength needed to raise mindful, intuitive, community-driven individuals. She made sure we left with specific tools and techniques to help us and our little ones stay grounded. — Vickie L.
