About this trip

Join us for a 5 day retreat like none you've heard of or been on before. We will be traveling to Taos, New Mexico, getting disconnected from the world we once knew to take a deeper dive within ourselves. This retreat is about working on YOU, from the inside out and taking care of yourself. The weekend will be filled with yoga classes, deep discussion, hikes, star gazing and more.  Our hope is to help guide those who feel disconnected from the person they once knew and help create a path to a happier and revised version of you.

Your Retreat Leaders: This retreat is co-led by Erin Stevenson, founder of The Do Good Movement  500 hour certified yoga instructor. Joining her is Kathleen McShane,MA, LCPC & CCTP therapist at Begin Within Therapy Services . Together they will help you achieve your next level of personal growth and improve your overall better well-being. 

Yoga And More: Each day we will begin with a yoga flow practice based on the needs of the students and will end the evening with a restorative/meditative practice. Erin works to make adjustments to all yoga postures, practices for all levels of yogis and variations for all bodies. No matter the day or time, each yoga class will be made to work best for YOU for what you need in the moment.

What makes this retreat different from most is that we have structured group discussions led by Kathleen to work on your mental well-being. There will also be opportunities for intensive therapy sessions with Kathleen at an additional cost. After an initial phone call, a customized plan will be developed for an issue or topic you would like to work on.

Kindness Projects: Additionally this retreat is like no other because we will be taking our yoga off the mat and giving back to our local community through kindness and art projects. 

Plenty of time will be available for you to take leisurely walks, hikes, watch the magnificent sunsets, stargaze and explore the many adventures of Taos. We will provide a day in downtown Taos with a private Trolly ride, tour of the Pueblos (if open pending on VOVID 19 restrictions) and dinner out. 

And of  course we will be experiencing the lovely estate of Blue Sky Retreat Center. Delicious meals will be prepare with so much love and care by their own chef-owner Marina. Marina prepares every meal from scratch putting lots of love and care into every meal.  Marina is originally from Kazakhstan and her cooking reflects the hearty and delicious flavors of Central Asia and Russia.

Transportation: Do Good Wellness will be offering shuttle service from the airport to the resort location pending your arrival time. We also will be providing transportation to local excursions and day trip to downtown Taos. If you wish to do more sightseeing on your own, we highly recommend renting a car to make your way around Taos at your own leisure. 

Cancellation Policy

We run our cancellation policy to be consistent with that of the The Blue Sky Resort. The retreat center is a small place and by booking with us, and we reserve your room, or the entire cabin for you, then there’s not much chance of us being able to fill your space at the last minute. So please be 100% sure that you want to book for the retreat and travel to the Taos before you submit your deposit.


Our policy applies in all situations, whether it’s caused by your own fault, medical emergencies, or acts of God.


Full payment is due 30 days prior to the retreat - May 15, 2021. 


If you need to cancel your reservation more than 30 days before your scheduled arrival date, then we will refund half of the money you paid for deposit.


If you need to cancel your reservation 30 days or less before your scheduled arrival date, then you will lose your deposit.

***In cases of cancellations due to being ill with COVID 19, we will credit the cost of your canceled retreat to a future retreat within the next 12 months.***

Excursions and add ons

We are excited at the opportunity to include some extra add ons to your Women's retreat. Below is a listing of additional items and adventures you can include within your trip. Once you register we will send you additional information on how to add this on to your retreat as well as the additional payment for the excursions and timeline of the week:


Hike - $0: This is a hike in the national park Cabo Blanco. Danes Trail takes about an hour (depending very much on how fast people walk, how often they stop etc.) it’s 1.5 km and is a loop. This hike is technically easier. 

These are true hikes and depending on the season it could be muddy or have some tricky footing. 

Wear hiking footwear and bring lots of water (you can refill at the entrance). There are bathrooms at the ranger station. 


***All add on items will be booked after signing up for the retreat. This will help us see who is interested in what and the best way to fit it into our week's schedule. Payment will be made either in person during the retreat to the vendors of the excursion or to the Cabuya Lodge. If you are interested in one or more of these items, make sure to identify during the final part of the on-line registration for the retreat***

Reviews

This was a once and a lifetime experience. When staying at the Cabuya Lodge you experience the best things in life. Fresh air monkeys, beautiful sunrise, amazing food,. Hospitality is beyond compare at Cabuya Lodge. Mandy does her best to accommodate all your needs and wants. When visiting a must is a massage . I have never experienced a massage like the one I received at the lodge. Erin and Kathleen couldn’t have been better host for the retreat. The Yoga in the morning woke you up, the evening yoga relaxed you. The book we read was very interesting and to hear the different opinions in group made you think. Kathleen lead the conversation to allow everyone express their thoughts and than give some feedback. The excursion offered allowed everyone something to do. The full day out on the Ocean was the best way to end the Inside Out experience. The community service trips were also interesting. Thanks for a great life experience.

This trip was a game changer for me. The Cabuya lodge is enchanting. The Yoga and the yoga room, all the surrounding nature, the wildlife, super delicious meals, camaraderie, ambience, the book talk, and therapy sessions are unsurpassed. Erin and Kathleen are my new 2 favorite people. Thanks for all your hard work!
