Start the New Year with a Story of Happiness and Success

Stories are the true essence of human relationships. On a daily basis, we have over 6,000 thoughts that formulate the story of who we are and what we believe and what we share with others. Our thoughts become our actions and our actions become our story. Do you like your story?

What is the story that you are telling yourself? Are you good enough?

What is the story you share with others? What do you believe you can achieve?

In this fabulous retreat, get empowered by understanding how to tell a story that helps you SHINE both mentally and physically. Also use movement to improve your inner story.
