Do you long to understand why you're feeling the way you do and wonder about steps you can take to feel better?

Are you dealing with a growing list of concerns like fatigue, overwhelm, trouble focusing, insomnia, depression, anxiety and stubborn weight? Or perhaps been told you have hypothyroidism or an autoimmune condition like Hashimoto's? 

In this one day retreat, we'll focus in one two key systems that are most often in play in a woman's health--the thyroid and adrenal glands.

Offering a different approach, one that is holistic and interconnected, we'll discuss natural solutions to transform your health and begin to create greater energy and vitality. By viewing your symptoms through the lens of 5 root causes, you'll learn an effective road map to navigate through what may, currently, look and feel like a mess. 

The day will not only be highly educational and include wellness lectures, but will also be part of a self-care plan central to nurturing these two glands. Interwoven into instruction will be meditation, journaling, mindful yoga and the deeply restorative practice of yoga nidra.
