Adventures in Balance

Yoga + Pilates + Adventures

September 15th-21st, 2018

Urban Balance is returning to Marrakech after our highly successful retreat last year at the captivating Peacock Pavilions.

Lying on the crossroads of Europe and Africa, Morocco beckons you to a world where the exotic becomes commonplace.  Join certified Yoga & Pilates Instructor, Rebecca Schefstrom and retreat coordinator, Carolyn Perry, on a magical 6 night /7-day retreat at the boutique hotel of Peacock Pavilions, peacefully nestled in an olive grove just outside of Marrakech.

There’s something very powerful about unplugging from your day to day life and gifting yourself time to be free.  Time to strengthen your practice and experience new adventures.  Cultivating a daily practice creates the strength, grace and balance which helps guide you through your journey and in your life back home. Travelling and experiencing exotic locations awakens a greater potential as you replace familiar routines with new adventures. We will explore the tools that will help you infuse your daily life with inspiration, energy and balance.

We will start each morning with a mediation, to take space and center ourselves. Followed by a 90-minute all-levels yoga practice that will leave you feeling energized and ready for the daily adventure. In the evening, we finish with a one-hour Pilates practice to reset the body, strengthen the core and do some restorative stretching. The alchemy of meditation, yoga, Pilates, healthy meals combined with spectacular views, and serene grounds will support and nourish your soul, far beyond the week you spend with us.  You will come home with a glow that will last for a long time with unforgettable memories.

Soul Radiance Retreat

Soul Radiance Retreat

Traveling to Morocco these last couple of years, has expanded my soul and opened a space of creativity deep within me. There are so many aspects that have touched me on a deep level. The vivid colors of the landscapes in the countryside, cities and the beach; the alluring mixture of peacefulness and strength of the desert; the spice aromas in the souks in the medina; the nourishing seasonal food tantalizing the taste buds with each bite; the rich and vibrant textiles; the moment to moment adventures riding camels, cooking, practicing yoga as I’m hearing the evening call to prayer, the friendliness of the people I met on my journey – I could go on and yet, for you to truly feel the creative pulse of Morocco within you, the next step is to experience it for yourself.

I invite you to open yourself to the mystery of Morocco where we’ll ignite your soul’s radiance through daily practices of adventure, yoga, meditation, dance, and Radiance Living Vision. You’ll awaken your next dream that is waiting for you to say “Yes, I’m ready!”

You’ll join me and other women just like you on this creative retreat at the exquisite Peacock Pavilions located just outside Marrakech amidst an olive grove surrounded by hundreds of rose bushes and rosemary hedges.

As we spend this week together, you will awaken to something new within you; bond with women on the journey; be inspired; discover how to bring this practice home so your everyday life experience is aligned with your creativity and spirituality while feeling the wonder and awe moments of your life. As a life coach, writer, yogini, wife and mom, I bring years of training, expertise and experience to empower your creative juices as you carve out this week for yourself to practice, adventure and come alive to your dreams. 

Can you tell I love this retreat and the women I get to adventure with during this week! I absolutely treasure this retreat!  Please click here to learn more details, http://camdenhoch.com/events/soul-radiance-retreat-2018/

A Woman’s natural state is of receptivity, we are highly intuitive, connected and born leaders.

We unconsciously resist much of our inherent connectivity and creative feminine power. We find ourselves approaching life in a robotic, draining and compromised way.

Only when you claim your complete nature and take back the missing elements of your feminine magic can you begin to move through life with effortless power, passion and purpose. Shining and uncompromised.

Life should be effortless, there is nothing about you that doesn’t have a place in the world.

Lead by Christian Whitecloud & Paula Jones, our April Woman's retreat offers you a home coming ~ back to the most magical and authentic essence of the woman you are. It combines indulgent self care and igniting all of your pleasure senses in the magic of Marrakech.

Adventures in Balance - Yoga + Pilates + Adventure

Lying on the crossroads of Europe and Africa, Morocco beckons you to a world where the exotic becomes commonplace.  Join certified Yoga & Pilates Instructor, Rebecca Schefstrom and retreat coordinator, Carolyn Perry, on a magical 6 night /7-day retreat at the boutique hotel of Peacock Pavilions, peacefully nestled in an olive grove just outside of Marrakech.

There’s something very powerful about unplugging from your day to day life and gifting yourself time to be free.  Time to strengthen your practice and experience new adventures.  Cultivating a daily practice creates the strength, grace and balance which helps guide you through your journey and in your life back home. Travelling and experiencing exotic locations awakens a greater potential as you replace familiar routines with new adventures. We will explore the tools that will help you infuse your daily life with inspiration, energy and balance.

We will start each morning with a mediation, to take space and center the mind and body.  Followed by a 90-minute all-levels yoga practice that will leave you feeling energized and ready for daily adventure. In the evening, we finish with a one hour Pilates practice to reset the body, strengthen the core and do some restorative stretching.  The alchemy of meditation, yoga, Pilates, and nourishing food combined with spectacular views and serene grounds will support your mind, body, & spirit.

Daily adventures will include a half day guided tour of the Medina of Marrakech, where we will explore historical sights, shop in the souks and have lunch in town.  There will be a full day trip to the Atlas Mountains, with a visit to a rustic Berber village, followed by a chef tasting menu at Richard Branson’s Kasbah Tamadot Hotel.  A luxurious afternoon will be spent at the world class La Mamounia hotel spa and a daytrip to the lovely Jardin Majorelle Gardens.  We have planned at the Pavilion, a Champagne brunch, special movie night under the stars with popcorn and hot drinks, and a henna party with cocktails and appetizers party by the pool.   Most of our meals will be at the Peacock featuring delicious, farm-to-fork vegetarian meals.

Please join us for an unforgettable Moroccan Retreat! October 28-November 3,2017

The Retreat
We designed this retreat to inspire the soul and to stimulate all the senses.  This retreat offers you the unique experience of witnessing Africa's grandiose natural beauty while immersing yourself in a culture rich in design, history, and diversity. The snow-capped Atlas Mountains and the palm tree scattered desert of Marrakesh emits a serene, yet powerful energy that will help you tap into your inner wisdom.  Marrakesh, a mecca for interior design and ambience, is celebrated for its incredible ability to inspire creativity and a fun expression of self.  The vibrant energy along with the alluring visions, scents, and tastes will all astound you!  We've put together an itinerary that reflects all the soulful and beautiful aspects of this area of  Morocco and know you will LOVE it. 

The Workshops
The process of manifestation is fun, focused, and energetic!  The facilitators, Michelle Lee and Amanda Dykann, will guide you through thoughtful discussions and processes that reveal the power within you.  The foundational premise of the workshops is that the Law of Attraction is a universal discipline that when leveraged appropriately allows all that you desire to flow into your experience.  We will take a deeper look at the energetics of creation and how to use your subconscious mind to propel you into the life you've dreamed of.  Guided meditations, exercises, journaling, and creative processes will all assist in this weeklong dive into releasing the Creator inside of you! 

The Yoga
The yoga classes at the retreat are all-level and available to everyone.  Amanda's teaching style is extremely intuitive and each class will focus on specific alignment points, the medical benefits of the asana, and the spiritual context of yoga.  The physical practice of Hatha Yoga can be a powerful tool for gaining clarity in the mind, and alignment with Source Energy.  The yoga practice will support the deeper work we will share.  You will feel completely connected to your radiant health and vitality after this incredible week of Asana practice.

Through the course of the week, we will settle into a deeper relationship with our senses and our surroundings. Our exploration will include going inward and connecting with our own presence and our new surroundings, as well as what moves and inspires us. There will be time for intention setting, a deeper discovery of our inner creative process, and opening to the way creative expression flows through us when we open to our natural gifting and connection to Source. Guided meditations, discussions, writing exercises and other creative processes will all be a part of our deepening.

We will also spend time understanding the historical background of Morocco for its own culture and artists.  What better place than Morocco to expand and heighten our imaginations. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with Morocco’s culture and people; a country rich with history, inspiration, and the texture.
