Fall Foliage Retreat for Midlife Women 

Sandagate VT- October 5th - October 9th, 2023

RESET - Your psyche

RECALIBRATE - your physical, mental emotional and spiritual wellness

RECONNECT - to the vibrant you that you know is still somewhere inside of you!

It's time to shut down the outside noise and escape to the beautiful New England countryside to recoup and refresh during the height of fall foliage.

For years this has been on my bucket list and I decided why not bring you along to share in the majesty and joy! I have hand-picked this beautiful location in Sandgate, Vermont because of its beautiful location and for the wonderful retreat center we will be calling home for 5 days, enLiven Vermont. The owners of this wonderful property are yogis that had a passion and a calling to open a retreat center that provided the perfect setting to unwind. I can't wait to share all that this amazing property and the surrounding area have to offer.

These midlife years are fabulous in many ways but more challenging than we might have expected. As a busy midlife woman taking care of everyone else’s needs, I bet it’s been far too long since you gave yourself the gift of serious self-care. I’m not talking about the little things we do such as massages, pedicures, reading a book, etc. I am talking about seriously putting yourself first in order to replenish your body, your mind, your emotions, and your spirit. It’s time to fill your cup up and YOU DESERVE IT!

Calm your spirit on this retreat by enjoying daily yoga and meditation practices. Support your growth through specially curated workshops designed specifically for women in their midlife years and beyond. Included in this retreat will be a wonderful leaf-peeping tour of the countryside as we gaze upon the brilliant hues of the changing leaves. During our 3-hour private experience, we will learn about some of the local history and make some stops to snap photos of quaint bridges and picturesque churches. 

While on the enLiven property stroll the grounds and enjoy their sprawling 3-acre garden paradise. Kick back in an Adirondack chair right by the river and let the soothing sounds of the water carry all of your stress away. Soak in the hot tub at sunset. Grab a glass of wine and gather around the nightly fire to warm your toes and share stories and deep connection with other like-minded women. One evening I have a wonderful sound bath experience planned for you!

I also have a few optional experiences you can take part in. Join me and a private guide for a leaf-peeping hike. Stroll the charming town of Manchester. Enjoy an optional craft-and-sip class. Further, pamper yourself by booking an on-site massage and facial (additional fee for these offerings). Additionally, there are lots of wonderful hiking trails, e-bike and bike rental, and kayaking,

There will be no cooking or cleaning for you. We will enjoy healthy and delicious meals prepared by the retreat center's personal chef, who can take your personal dietary restrictions into account. Wine will be included during the evening and with dinner. 

This is a perfect opportunity to make new friends (or bring some with you). Gaze at the twinkling stars, laugh a lot, learn something new, share your own knowledge, and find acceptance, strength, joy, and peace. 

I invite you to join me as we nurture our souls and feed our spirits!

Room
  • What do I bring?
    Yourself. That is really it. Ya, we will send you a packing list a couple weeks ahead of time, but really, the main thing you need to worry about is bringing you - all of you. (Some retreat venues have yoga equipment available and some do not, the host will advise you if you will need to bring your own mat and props.)
  • What if I have diet restrictions?
    When you register please note any special requirements you have. I will do everything possible to accommodate your needs.
  • Can I bring my service animal?
    Well now this is just difficult to say...but no. Sadly our host locations are animal free areas, including service animals.
  • Are there payment plans available?
    Yep! Choose the payment plan option with a $500.00 deposit. The remaining balance will be divided evenly by the number of months left to pay (Final payment is due 60 days prior to the retreat). There is no interest on payment plans, however, there is a $25.00 payment plan fee. Your host will contact you with exact payment plan details once your deposit has been made.
  • Who are my retreats suitable for?
    If you are reading this far- it is definitely suitable for YOU. My retreats are designed for women who want to come connect to other like-minded women- and to themselves. Many of my guests find peace, growth, ridiculous laughter and fun, healing and nourishment of the mind & body. COME.
  • Are your retreats for women only?
    Yes. Although we have MUCH love for men, our retreats are designed to share sacred, safe space for the ladies.
  • What are the ages of the attendees?
    So here is the thing; As you have probably figured out by now from the name of my company, Reshape Midlife, my business is geared to women in the midlife years and beyond. That being said, no woman is excluded. Just know that workshops and classes are geared to this phase of life. Because alcohol is served at retreats they are restricted to women 21 and over.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Yikes - NOOOOO say it ain’t so! Ok, yeah, I get it. Life happens. Deposits, however, are non-refundable (boooo I know). You can gift it to someone else if you would like (they are transferrable). Also, I do not offer any refunds on payments with less than 60 days to the retreat start date (another boooo). So, like, please don’t cancel. Just COME. You can read the full cancelation policy here.
  • I don’t really do yoga, or have only done it a few times. Is this still for me?
    Uh YASSSSS. It is. Whether you have NEVER done yoga or you consider yourself an ADVANCED yogi- our yoga offerings are a fun place to explore yoga & your body. You are not too small, too big, too 'unhealthy', too stiff...you are perfectly designed to attend as you are right now. COME.
  • Is daily housekeeping included?
    Ahhhh the joys of someone else doing the dirty work! My retreats are typically held in private properties thus there isn’t any housekeeping included (unless noted). I do take care of all the meals outlined in your program and NO DISH DUTY for you! My intention is to cultivate a relaxed, carefree environment.
  • Can I share a room with a friend?
    If you have a roommate you’d like to share accommodations with, be sure to clearly indicate that when you register for your retreat- and if the room structure allows it, it will happen. Otherwise roommates are selected randomly in shared rooms (trust me you will love everyone you meet!).
