"Yoga and other forms of movement medicine, such as dance,

have healed me in unspeakable ways. 


When I became a yoga teacher in 2018, I had the idea in mind of holding space and creating opportunities that would allow others to heal, as I had, through the yoga practice. I have had the privilege to travel to nearly twenty countries and I have attended yoga retreats in Portugal, Bali and in Hawaii, and often, I was one of the only Black women in these spaces. I have experienced the healing benefits of yoga/wellness retreats and wish to share this offering with and for you. I have attended yoga retreats, one in Hawaii, the other in Bali and I know its healing benefits. This offering is a part of my divine call, my passion.


I curate transformational spaces of healing for women of color. 


I believe that rest and radical self care, particularly for Black women, are forms of resistance and reclamation. A part of my life’s work is to heal communities and society through deliberate wellness in communities of color, particular among Black women. When Black women are liberated, we all reap the benefits of her freedom. 


Through my retreats, I aim to create a space where women, particularly Black women, can rest deliberately, reclaim intentionally, and return to self in ways that will allow us to show up as our authentic, goddess selves. I know and have lived the truth that rest, wellness, boundary setting, and saying no are pathways to not only peace, but to power".

  • Adventures and excursions depending on the location (completely optional)


is a retreat right for me?

I have typically attended retreats when experiencing burnout, the need to get away to a beautiful place so that I can check in with self, or when I want a holistic feeling retreat experience or vacation - that someone else plans for me - in a beautiful place!

My yoga retreats may be good for you if:

  • If you are open to or love to travel

  • Have never tried yoga but you are interested in it or you practice yoga regularly 

  • you are curious about international travel or you have traveled all over the place 

  • You are open to meeting new people, but you are also okay stepping away to take whatever you need for yourself
