What Students Say

"I loved the inclusion of 'real' people sharing their experiences on certain topics. This made the learning so visceral as well as intellectual. I also loved the food, the accepting warm atmosphere and the free time to walk, think, read, and write."
-Eira G

"It was the best leap of faith in my yoga journey. Thank you! This training and the coordination for all the specialists was phenomenal. The food was great. (I liked) all of the content and living with 14 powerful women from all walks of life."

- Michelle L.

"This prenatal training has given me a greater depth of knowledge and a wealth of resources that I look forward to sharing in Northeastern Pa. I hope to help build communities of women, by women, and for women"
