New Year’s Day Gathering

What do you want to set forth in 2019?


Believe that what you set your mind to will manifest.

Thoughts become things. Take some time to be still, create space and trust that there is abundance…that it’s going to be okay….to remember to “Be” in THIS moment and trust that “Be”ing you is the the greatest gift you have!

Crystal singing bowls, yin, energy healing reiki and yoga nidra with Linda and Julie

"The Awakened Heart Journey"

5th Annual Women's Recovery Yoga Retreat

Open to all women on the path of discovery

August 2-4, 2019
The beauty of going on a retreat is that no matter where you go or how long you stay, you'll always meet yourself when you get there.

Are you ready to listen to a bird singing, deeply breathe in the smell of flowers, grass or earth and delight in a soft breeze blowing on your face?

Awaken your heart in the magical setting of Vernonia Springs surrounded by old growth forest for an uplifting and nourishing experience.


Without the pull of deadlines, relationships, the Internet, or other media, if we give ourselves time to go deep into our own hearts where we can fully reflect on our joys, sorrows and fears, we can own them, release them and come to understand our path more intimately.  "The Awakened Heart Journey" is about taking this time...this awaken, discover and renew.  Gentle yoga, meditation with the healing sounds of crystal singing bowls, Reiki energy healing during practice, healthy food, time to yourself and time to connect with other women will be just a few of the very special things you will experience at the 5th Annual Women's Recovery Yoga Retreat. Open to all women on the path of discovery. Linda Santilli Taylor, Cathy Lawgates, Halie Taylor and myself (Julie Bertagna) will be your gentle guides.

Calm the mind and nourish the soul

Align your mind and heart to awaken compassion and love within

"When one or more are gathered together, miracles occur"

Addiction comes in many forms and can creates chaos in our minds and bodies. Recovery yoga will give you the opportunity to break through addictive behaviors by aligning your heart and spirit with the life you want to lead, creating peace and harmony within. Our time we have together is a chance to gather with love in a safe , truth-seeking environment.  I heard it said that "practicing yoga provides the the cup, pranayama, breath work, empties the cup, and meditation fills the cup with sweet nectar."(on hold for now
