What women say…
Thank you seems so small! Being a part of your inaugural Women’s Retreat was inspirational, calming and enlightening. I left with, what felt like, a tsunami wave of peace that simply carried me through my week. I want to thank Nadia Ellis and Dawn Gomez for the most soothing and therapeutic stretching and massage. The delightful conversation, meditations and inspiring TED Talks added to the experience. Claire, your kindness and generosity are greatly appreciated.

I spent a wonderful day of relaxation and meditation at the Women’s Retreat in a beautiful, natural environment. I enjoyed the delicious meals Claire prepared and gained knowledge on nutrition and healthy ways of eating. I felt energized and strong after the breathing and stretch session, as well as the insightful conversation with the other participants. A wonderful experience created just for women.
