The schedule changes daily and offers a variety of experiences.

Everything is optional, and you get to choose which sessions or outings to attend and how you'd like to curate your retreat.

Here’s to making the most of 2024 and living our most deeply satisfying lives!

Meet Jessica:

Jessica’s work is informed by nearly three decades of dedicated practice and study in yoga, therapeutic movement and dance, expressive arts, restorative practices, trauma theory, and neuroscience. She loves sharing the simple yet profound physical, emotional, and mental benefits that these modalities offer.  Jess is passionate about offering meaningful life-affirming (and fun!) retreats in beautiful locations around Aotearoa and overseas. She creates deeply fulfilling, transformative & powerful experiences.

"My inspiration is rooted in the limitless potential of movement, human connection and creative expression. I feel blessed to have witnessed firsthand their transformative power within my own body and mind and in the lives of those I have been privileged to work with. And we have a whole lot of fun along the way!"

"Going on retreat with Jess is an exploration in tuning into your inner wisdom, nurturing your body and mind, enjoying divine healthy meals, laughing a lot, connecting with others and spending time in nature. It's pure bliss!"
