The Birth of Embracing the Mother Retreats
On her back in savasana, that final resting pose of yoga, founder Rebecca felt beautifully and abundantly blissed out. She had spent the day with 75 other women doing yoga, art, singing, and dancing together in the authentic and nurturing space that only women can create together. As she laid there surrounded by other women, her inner voice spoke to her, “share this feeling with mamas.”
She was very unsure about how that might manifest, as she was the main caretaker of two children (one with special needs) and enjoying the growth she was experiencing in her childbirth and yoga classes in Denver. Nonetheless, she began dreaming up her first mama-focused retreat.
Slowly and surely, her first yoga and meditation retreat began to come together. Only two amazing mamas joined Embracing the Mother Retreats that fall and it was a beautiful gathering that allowed her to start small, intimate and authentically.
Now, just two years and 4 retreats later, we are humbled and thrilled by the abundance of interest in our mama-focused retreats. Our main intention is to nurture mamas as they grow their babies in pregnancy, emerge from the first childbearing year, and well beyond. We offer yoga and meditation in beautiful and easily accessible locations in Colorado and soon, beyond. We focus on healing the mind, body and spirit by reconnecting to the heart and body through being in nature, on a yoga mat and eating nourishing organic food together with other mamas at various points in their mothering journey.
As the owner, Rebecca collaborates with other yoga, meditation and intuitive teachers to provide quality, authentic and supportive retreats that offer mamas a break from everyday life with family to rediscover her inner world..... as she did that Sunday afternoon in May just a few years ago.
Join us as we celebrate our third year together in this amazing adventure of retreats for mamas!
