Joy! An Uptown Women's Retreat

  • Anahata Collaborative 2836 Lyndale Ave South Minneapolis, MN USA (map)


Joy is our birthright and the truth of who we are.

Often this truth is buried under the burdens, worries and to-do-lists of everyday life.

Indulge and nourish yourself at our full day Urban Retreat meant to Inspire, create & connect on a deeper level with time for reflection during the quiet February months. This is a day where women can come together and immerse themselves in the practices of Gentle Yoga, Women’s Wellness, Collaborative Art, and Energy Medicine.

This one day retreat is like a gateway - an opening into the experience and truth of yourself as joy. It is an initiation to and activation of the joy vibration in your body and mind. You will be guided to remember and open to the joy that is already within you and move through any blocks that many be holding you back. You will also learn the keys to the gateway so you may access joy at any time.

We will do fun, interactive exercises to help YOU uncover your own path to Real Joy. Think of it as a take-away toolkit to learn how to cocoon yourself and emerge restored.



  • Guided intention setting and meditation, including vision boarding in your own journal to take home

  • A restorative yin yoga practice

  • Reiki healing and activations throughout the day
