Join us for a whole delicious day where you can just let go.

You are a midlife woman living in complex times. While managing the intricacies of multiple roles and challenging responsibilities, you may also be experiencing peri-menopause or post-menopause discomforts. While midlife may be a difficult season for any woman, YOU CAN awaken inner wisdom, potential, and possibility. Restore your spirit in the Vibrant Woman Awakening Retreat. . .


    Find comfort, refreshment, and silence when you connect with your body, breath, and heart.


    Calm your mind. Discover your inner light, clarity, wisdom, and voice.


    Let go of muscular, emotional, and mental tension to feel more peace, ease, and freedom.


    Feel the acceptance, compassion, and authenticity within a community of fully present, open-hearted, positively-focused women.


    Shift gears and view points and come away from the retreat feeling refreshed and renewed ~ physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Vibrant Voices

“When I returned to working with Cindi, I was stretched between caring for my aging parents and energetic grandchildren.   A year before my anticipated retirement, I made the sudden decision to leave my career in the wake of my parents’ medical crises.   Life clearly was not unfolding as planned. Yet, through the uncertainty and turmoil, I credit yoga and the work we did together for transforming my fears into hopes and growing my skills to reimagine a whole new way of living. Today, I feel renewed, empowered, and grateful! ”

Michelle "Mitzi" Anderson ~ Green Valley, AZ
