This intimate women‘s retreat is a unique opportunity for you to take time for yourself, get present to who and where you are in life, shift your perspectives, and bond with other incredible women along the way.
April 2019 brings us an astrological Blue Full Moon, a Moon like this only happens every 3 years! An astrological blue moon is a full moon amplified. It’s a wonderful time to clear out the old and bring ourselves to a place of peace, where our deepest desires have space to come toward fruition.

Courteney Martin is a 200 hour E-RYT Yoga teacher. A former college athlete and high school psychology teacher originally from a small island in Rhode Island, she started practicing yoga to balance her body from a lifetime of competitive sports, injuries, and as a release from the fast paced high-stress environment she had become accustomed to. She quickly realized that on her mat she ultimately found true peace & clarity of the mind and a healing balance of strength and flexibility.
Courteney completed her RYT 200 hour yoga training in 2013 in Rhode Island and since then has completed over 1,000 hours of teacher training in a blend of yoga styles including Vinyasa, Baptiste Power Yoga, Hatha, Kids Yoga, Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) Yoga, and Pre-Natal Yoga.

Courteney teaches vinyasa-based classes with an emphasis on alignment, breath, and self- exploration. She leads students through a progression of dynamic sequences to stimulate energy and vitality throughout the body. While her classes may be challenging, she makes them accessible to everyone. She strives to help her students explore their own yoga experience and grow and transform on and off the mat.
