A Yoga & Creative Art Journaling Retreat just for women.
Allow this time for you and escape to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia for some self-care and self-exploration. Be inspired by the breathtaking colors of the fall landscape. Get in touch with your inner child and and rediscover yourself through creative art journaling, a process of play exploration and experiment with words, color and images that has been shown to lowers stress levels as effectively as meditation. Bring healing and balance to the body and peace to the mind with Lymphatic Yoga®, a gentle practice that combines breath work, specific poses, and relaxation to restore and rejuvenate from the cellular level. This practice is suitable for all levels, including beginners. Let retreat leaders and long-time friends, Erin Jaszczak and Trish Petty, guide you through a much deserved, nurturing weekend of restoration and self discovery.

Erin began practicing yoga more than 20 years ago and over the years found that the periods in her life when she let her practice fall away were the times she actually needed it the most. After committing to her personal practice seven years ago, she found healing from past traumas and conditions including metastatic breast cancer at the age of 37, depression, and autoimmune disorders. As an instructor and founder of Where in the World Yoga & Wellness, Erin's goal is to bring yoga to you, no matter where you are on your journey, by providing practical, accessible, and achievable yoga instruction and inspiration for everyBODY, with a special emphasis on beginners, returners and recovering bodies. Erin 200 RYT® and Certified Lymphatic Yoga® Teacher, trained under yoga master Edely Wallace, creator of the Lymphatic Yoga® method. When not on the mat, Erin enjoys traveling with her husband and two children, preparing meals with local foods, and any activity on the water, especially SUP yoga!
Trish is a creative soul with a science mind who loves being outdoors, practicing yoga and admiring the beauty all around. She received her bachelors degree in biology and studio art from the University of Virginia, where she met her amazing husband of twenty-five years. She started her career illustrating medical textbooks and surgical manuals while doing dermatology research at the University of Florida. She stepped back from her career to have and raise two wonderful kids. When they entered school she taught elementary and middle school art at Millhopper Montessori School for almost 10 years. She designed and led a team of women to paint a 150 foot mural depicting the story of Noah’s Ark at Trinity United Methodist Church in her free time. And now that she is a new empty nester she is starting another chapter in her life. She is restoring her love of creating art daily and exploring how that nourishes the body and the spirit. She hopes to share this journey with others.
