About this trip

Yoga me BLAC was created to provide healing, holistic practices to people of color to empower them to Be Liberated And Conscious

This year we celebrate 5 years of establishing community, increasing mindfulness, building partnerships and changing lives. 

Celebrate this transcending achievement with us in Arizona.

During this getaway we will visit Phoenix, Sedona and the Grand Canyon Village.

This land offers various spaces for spiritual enlightenment, healing, self-reflection and manifesting. 

We will greet the sun with our Kemetic practices, honor the first new moon of Fall, and practice self-care. 

The theme for this years celebration is "Self-defense is Self-care", therefore we will align ourselves with the ability to care for and protect ourselves both physically and mentally. 

We will have a special tactical trainer from Hard Candy Self Defense, guide us through proper firearm use, self defense strategies and trauma release 

There will be plenty of time to explore, rest, learn and reflect. 

Let's get mentally elevated to Be Liberated And Conscious; this 4 day retreat is full of immersive, soulful yoga practices to help you reclaim your identify

Why join our retreat?

For the person walking their spiritual path, this is the perfect experience to let go, just be and transform. 

Also, we're celebrating 5 years of culture and energy building and this is a great place to put that energy to use... plus, we know how to have a good time!

This retreat offers plenty of time and space to embrace silence and ground for transformation. 

Each day will include meditation, conscious breathing and intention setting, Kemetic yoga flows and an opportunity to explore the beautiful landscapes of Arizona. 

We will also have an anniversary celebration and new moon ritual

And to tie everything together we will spend a few hours on the gun range to practice our firearm handling and self-defense awareness.

Remainder Payment

In all cases, full payment must be received no later than 45 days before the start date to hold your spot. In the month leading up to the final payment date, you will receive reminders to complete your payment. If we do not receive your payment on time, your spot will be made available to those on the waitlist and you will forfeit your deposit. There are no refunds or transfers of payments after the above deadline due to the fact that we are required to make venue payments that are no longer refundable after this time.

It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policy before making a reservation. Naturally, no one books with the intention of canceling or postponing their training, but unexpected things do happen that can be beyond your control. We strongly recommend that you purchase travel cancellation insurance to cover any possible loss. Depending on the policy and conditions, travel cancellation insurance will pay for some or all cancellation fees. With most agencies, insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation.

If you have to cancel your reservation, please inform us as soon as possible.  If you cancel your reservation altogether up to 60 days prior to the start date of your retreat or training, you will forfeit your deposit. The remaining balance may be used as credit for another event within two years of the date of your confirmed cancellation. For last minute cancellations (less than 60 days prior to start date of your retreat) any fees paid will be non-refundable and non-transferable.

Due to non-recoverable payments that we must make in advance to secure the retreat venues, exceptions to our policy cannot be made for any reason, including but not limited to natural disasters, inclement weather, acts of terrorism, illness, health conditions, medical or personal or family or work emergencies, or change of mind. If you cannot reach the training due to unforeseen circumstances such as strikes, weather circumstances, and missed, delayed or canceled flights, training fees are unfortunately non-refundable and non-transferable. We strongly recommend purchasing travel cancellation insurance.

We reserve the right to remove a participant from the program if their behavior is disruptive. Incomplete or inaccurate information on the application may result in dismissal from the program.
