Staytreat: A Motherhood Retreat (Sherborn)

  • Unity Farm Sanctuary 17 Unity Lane Sherborn, MA, 01770 United States (map)

I'm pleased to join Cassie Marcucci to offer yoga at her upcoming Staytreat at Unity Farm Sanctuary in Sherborn, MA. This mini wellness retreat was created to provide Mother's an opportunity to feel good about themselves, discover their inner beauty and to encourage self care practices to carry along with them when they return home.  This is an opportunity for mothers in MA or based in New England to retreat close to home.  Whether you stay overnight in one of the few Sanctuary rooms or go home that night to return first thing in the morning you will be getting the same benefits.  

When was the last time you took time away for yourself?  As mothers, we take on the roles of nurturer, educator, coordinator, household manager, and are often juggling many of these roles at once.  Most of us have hobbies or interests outside of out family life, careers, volunteer work, assist ill family members and humbling taking care of every one of the many people in our lives.  While we are In the constant service of others, we often fail to take care of our own needs.  This sense of duty that drives us to care for others, leaves us energetically & emotionally depleted and disconnected from our inner-self. 

the highlights

Unity Farm Sactuary- Unity Farm Sanctuary is a non-profit corporation providing rehabilitation and permanent housing for distressed farm animals. Located in Sherborn, MA, Unity Farm Sanctuary encompasses 15 acres of farmland, and currently houses around 150 animals that have been rescued from a wide variety of living conditions and situations.  The sanctuary operates alongside Unity Farm LLC, which currently produces certified organic apples, mushrooms, honey, and compost, among other farm products. The sanctuary also hosts retreats, yoga classes, meditation classes and more.  

We will have access to the entire sanctuary for the weekend.  Yoga classes will be upstairs in a large open space.  Blocks, bolsters, meditation blankets and more are all included.

Farm-to-table meals - Tiffany, an entrepreneur from the North Shore, will be preparing, cooking and serving us ultra nutritious snacks, homemade juice and farm-to-table meals.  She will leave us feeling energized, strong and full of nutrients needed to nourish us. Tiffany is in the process of starting her own juicing company out of a rehabbed school bus!  She's going to be a wonderful addition to our Retreat.  You can follow her juicing journey on Instagram:  @tiny_tiff_fit

Reiki -  For the last year and a half I have been receiving Reiki monthly to help assist me in healing from Postpartum Depression.   I not only found this practice relaxing but the healing began to work from the inside and transformations took place that have transformed me.  I became Reiki II attuned practice on myself daily.  This daily practice grounds me, clears me and centers me for whatever challenges are presented to me.  I look forward to sharing this healing practice with you. 

Yoga by Lauren Turner - Lauren is a yogi, mother, wife,  home-cook, suburban gardener, and bit of a crazy-chicken lady. Following the birth of her son in 2016 she decided to take a break from her corporate job to further pursue her passion of teaching and sharing yoga.  Her entrepreneurial spirit has enabled her to create a better work-life balance for herself and credits her yoga practice for helping her navigate her "newish" role of mother. Lauren, her husband and son live in Framingham and are expecting their second son in May this year.  Lauren will be joining us the entire weekend -- thank you Lauren for participating and manifesting this dream of mine.  Thrilled we are making this come to life together.

Reach Your Happy Guest Laura Flemming -  Laura is an Intuitive Coach and Reiki Practitioner and will help guide us towards developing a practice of reaching our health and life balance goals through a combination of energetic body work and intuitive coaching.  This will connect our inner purpose and passions to our external goals and aspirations. She will assist us in finding sustainable practices that will inspire us, bring balance to our lives, and bring us joy.  Check out her website below and follow her on Instagram!
