Unmask: To reveal the true character of; To uncover; To bring to light

Movement is medicine! Start your day with a kundalini yoga and meditation practice.  Today will be full of delicious freeing practices allowing you to release the shackles of fear, and unmask the version of yourself that is powerful, connected, and authentic. We will have a heart-opening cacao ceremony followed by a fun-filled night out in town, including a salsa dance lesson.

Today it’s ashtanga yoga and meditation to set the tone for the day.

Testimonials

KENA

TESTIMONIAL

“Kena has been the best mindset coach!.She has been paramount in helping me identify triggers and mental blocks that have kept me playing small and playing it safe... She helped me go within to face my fears and remove the blocks in a way that did not retraumatize or trigger me. Kena is direct, yet gentle and funny….Because of her, I’ve manifested the relationships I’ve only dreamed about, a much better job, and have launched my business and podcast! Can we say I’m just getting started, but am abundantly living!!”

RACHELLE

TESTIMONIAL

“Chelle has been a beacon of light on my healing path, leading me through my own inner darkness with empathy, compassion, and a sense of empowerment that is contagious… She connects deeply with me and shines light on the dark areas; think “soul sister”, but with healthy boundaries… Not only has Chelle been a phenomenal therapist and yoga instructor, she’s also been a beloved mentor for myself and many others who aspire to work in the clinical and healing communities. I would strongly recommend working with her on your healing path; she’s a pleasure to know and offers a safe space to start unpacking the “heavy” stuff that we’ve often unconsciously carried on our journeys.”

MARSHA

TESTIMONIAL

“Marsha has inspired me with her very being alone. She left an incredible mark on me during an incredibly difficult period of my life. I owe so much to her and I hope that she knows the impact of her work for so many… She connected with me on and off my mat as she pushed me beyond my comfort zone. No matter where I was in my headspace, I always felt my power! She was always prepared, concise, inspiring, and authentic. She unknowingly gave me back my peace by helping me find myself, my power, and my peace.”
