What to expect: While yoga is at the center of these weekends, the larger goal is connection, with ourselves, between mothers and daughters, and the group as a whole. We foster this bond through conversation, journaling, art projects, partner and group yoga sessions, and the organic experiences that are afforded by sharing a home for the weekend.
