A I M

Our aim is to offer a unique travel experience for women where they discover the world and get to deepen their own self connection. We've designed every aspect of this retreat to empower you and to support local  business owners through hands on collaborations and education. Mindful moments will be infused into each day to inspire you to connect with Medellin in a different way than you would solo. We've thought through every activity, and intentionally connected with amazing women owned businesses to give you a multi dimensional and intentional retreat experience where you can feel taken care of,  and supported. Medellin is truly the city of cool, where the weather is eternally spring, and where design, food, entrepreneurship and innovation are making this city one of the most interesting places in the world.

Optional Yoga:

We are trying out something new with our retreats to offer an experience where everyone feels included. Although we believe that our yoga trips are accessible to everybody, we wanted to remind you that not all yoga is physical. For those of you who love the practice, or for any of you who are just getting into it, we wanted to offer a class on two of the mornings to give you an opportunity to move your body, get connected and also learn the basics that can develop your yoga practice. 
 
Morning Check In's + Intention Setting
We want to promote a daily mindfulness practice for you to deepen your appreciation for yourself and the world. Each morning we invite you to do our check in and intention setting where we'll prompt you with a simple theme to bring your attention to through out the day. Examples are, Thursday: practicing presence. You have the opportunity to participate as much as you want to during these mini group chats. What has made our retreats so special are the authentic connections we make and the self awareness that we can all develop. We want to offer you little nuggets of introspection for you to feel connected with the other women on the retreat and walk away feeling like you were the most present you could be.
