Yoga Retreat For Women of Color Let's Dance!


"Put on your red shoes and dance the blues. Let's dance to the song they're playing on the radio. Let's sway while colour lights up your face."  —David Bowie 

Come gather in community to heal and renew your body, mind, and spirit.

Join other Women of Color in this retreat with Maya Breuer, Kiesha Battles, and special guests Dr. LaCretia Dye, Robin Downes, and Satta Jallah, and experience a weekend of sisterhood like no other. Through yoga, movement, meditation, relaxation, and conscious connection to yourself and others, you will 

  • Open your heart to make connection through sacred movement
  • Find purpose, harmony, joy, balance, and love
  • Let your hips sway!

Return home ready to live your best life.
