WHEN: Sat, May 2nd


TIME: 1030am-230pm

Hello amazing women!!

Different times simply means doing things differently. Almost overnight we've been forced to accept a shift in how we connect with our environment, our family, friends, OURSELVES. What already seemed a "virtually" driven world we lived in even a month ago, is nothing compared to the one we are experiencing today. The "virtual" world is no longer a choice to participate in, it matter of factly IS. For Malaika and I, it has been a question of how do we still offer an intimate, in-person wellness experience in The Virtual World. The answer, We Still Do! So here's to all of you, ever present in our hearts and minds, more important than ever, needing to bring the support and connectivity of this awesome women-based community together again through another SHE-RA retreat. Some of you have attended one of our past retreats in person, some of you have only taken a class from Malaika and/or I... Either way, we bring you a retreat offering a few virtual hours of tangible body/mind awareness. 























The same leggings for days, no shower, no judgement... 

Come As You, For You.



Date: Saturday 5/2/2020 (Registration will close 4/30)

Space & Props needed: 

- Space: If possible, try to set yourself up in a space that can accommodate a yoga mat and full extension of arms overhead both standing up and lying down. For the BARRE session, a sturdy mid-thigh to waist-high support system to act as the "barre" is ideal (this could be the back of a sofa, sturdy armchair, kitchen counter, desk, etc.)

- Props:

  • Yoga Mat (ideal, but not necessary. Particularly for the Barre session, just make sure you have access to a skid-free area like bare feet on a hard wood floor or grippy socks if you're on carpet.)

  • Light Weights (1lb - 3lbs is recommended) - (ideal, but not necessary. There are easy alternatives to weights such as 2 food cans, etc.)

  • Yoga Block (ideal, but not necessary)

  • Pillow

  • Cozy Warm Layers (blanket, sweater, socks, etc.)

  • Notebook and Pen

Barre Fitness:

- An all-level fitness program utilizing movements inspired by classical ballet methods, Pilates, yoga and orthopedic exercises. (All exercises can be modified to meet individual physical needs). The session will conclude with yoga inspired stretching and breathing. 

Yoga Nidra:

- A gentle and therapeutic yoga flow, followed by Yoga Nidra. The session will end with accompanied Tibetan Singing Bowl sound bath for an overall deep rest and rejuvenation of the mind and physical senses. 

Snack/Lunch Break: This is all you! Prepare your beverage and snack/lunch of your choice. BUT, while we've got you reading here, we urge you to take a little time ahead of this retreat to prepare something that is yummy and offers good nutrition. 


Whether or not you are able to join us for this retreat, Malaika and I send healthy love and peace your way!
