Our Story

For women by women

We are here for YOU
We provide a space of rest and refuge for ALL women.
I intentionally created Retreat in the Pines to give you a safe space to retreat to. Our retreats are "women only" and we deliberately keep our retreat size small, so you can find exactly what you need; whether it's connection, inspiration or self-discovery.

We are women who support each other. It's not about the yoga clothes or if you can touch your toes. It's about time spent in conversation - sharing stories, laughter and sometime tears.

Jump right in and join us for a retreat. We'd love to have you! Or see what we're about, join us on Facebook or Instagram.

What we believe in

Community

Our community of inspiring women support and encourage each other, not only at the retreat, but in the months and years after. Our community thrives in our safe and sacred retreat space. You'll experience moments of healing throughout the weekend surrounded by a community of love and respect. In a hammock gazing up at the trees. During final relaxation in Yoga, your mind calm and body relaxed. Watching the sun rise through the trees as you enjoy your coffee. Sharing stories with a guest who is struggling just like you. The moments with the other guests are the moments that bind our community together.

Equality

We believe ALL women have the right to enjoy a quality retreat experience, regardless of background, age, ethnicity, fitness level or income. We intentionally keep our prices affordable. Our Retreat Assistance program is for women who are facing financial challenges and need assistance paying for a retreat. This is for YOU or someone you may know - we are committed to bringing the life changing experience of a retreat to all women.

Authenticity

Our guests are encouraged to be un-apologetically themselves at every step of the retreat. There's no need to wear make up. Showing up for breakfast in your pajamas is the way we roll. Sharing is encouraged. Laughter is embraced. Tears are welcome. Each member of our team has been chosen for her empathy and compassion, as well as her willingness to show up as her authentic self.

Sustainability

We reduce, recycle, re-use as much as we can. Our seasonal retreat menus are created to minimize food waste. We freeze leftover veggies to make veggie broth. We freeze rice to add to soups. We compost table scraps, coffee filters, vegetable peelings and more. We shop local for produce, chickens and eggs and grow our own herbs. We believe in conserving our planet's resources - using rain barrels to water our garden and asking guests to be conscientious about their energy and water consumption. We support economic sustainability by paying all of our staff a living wage.

We Give Back

We create empowerment not only in our retreat space, but by giving to local non-profits that support women. By joining us for a retreat, not only are you embodying personal change, you are also making a difference in the lives of other women. We love everything about The Magdalen House, inspired by their mission and their love for women. We welcome suggestions for giving opportunities, contact us.
