The Relaxation Retreat

Welcome to the weekend that will restore your mind & body through relaxation. Join Shannon and Brianna for a blissful weekend full of reflection, movement, and self-exploration in magical Ojai, California.


Each day we'll be exploring different aspects of our physical and emotional wellbeing and their interconnectedness to the nervous system. We'll dive into a deeper understanding of ourselves using eastern and western philosophies. Through meditation, yoga, nutrition, and coaching you’ll have the opportunity to move through the layers of your being and truly connect with yourself.


You’ll leave with practical tools to change the way your manage stress in your life. Expect each day to be nourished daily with healthy comfort foods, treat yourself to a massage, walk the orange orchards, or lounge by the jacuzzi.
