Meet the Retreat Facilitators



Welcome Mamas!

Logan and Rebecca have carefully curated this retreat for postpartum and seasoned mamas to getaway for a weekend and be active, meditate, go inward and restore!

We look forward to getting to know you and are here to answer any questions you might have about our retreat and what that will look like!  We promise to meet you wherever you are in your motherhood journey. We are honored to be a part of it!

Rebecca Peterson

Rebecca is the creator of Embracing the Mother Retreats. As a Colorado native, she wanted to create retreats that really honored mothers in the childbearing years and take advantage of the beautiful space she grew up surrounded by in Colorado. The way that being in circle with other women, more specifically women on a similar journey, creates community and inclusivity - something she values above all else. Being in community with other mothers is not just healing, it's a necessity. And having the time to getaway, listen to within and relax is crucial to thriving as a mother. 

Rebecca has loved yoga since her early teen years. She has trained with teachers ranging from Shiva Rea & Shannon Paige to Tantric teachers like Sally Kempton and Douglas Brooks. Her yoga style is described as down-to-earth, grounded in diving deeper into your heart with mindful compassion and courage and filled with humor and light-heartedness.

She has been teaching yoga classes at various yoga studios throughout the Denver and Boulder, Colorado area since 2008, and specializes in mamas. There is always laughter in her classes and retreats!

She is also an Advanced Birthing From Within® childbirth Mentor, training with the amazing Pam England and teaches regular Birthing From Within and Express Mindful Birth at the mama'hood in Denver.

Her influences include Danielle LaPorte, Kate Northrup, Brene Brown, Kimberly Ann Johnson, and most significantly her children, Skyler and Everly & her beloved, Joel Peterson, whose loving encouragement and patient listening makes following her calling a reality.
