Join Jessie & Laura for a unique retreat to Cartagena, Colombia and its surrounding islands!

During our 6 days together, you will experience the vibrant Colombian & Caribbean culture, foods, and nightlife of Cartagena, and enjoy the stunning beachings and calm waters of the Rosario and Tierra Bomba Islands.

Jessie and Laura have also teamed up to offer you some incredible programming, which can best be described as, Yin & Yang: Restored Balance Through Movement.

What is Yin & Yang?

“Complementary (rather than opposing) forces that interact to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the assembled parts.”

Jessie and Laura have been friends for 5 years now and while they have a LOT in common, they challenge each other in different ways. Jessie challenges Laura to be more fierce and fiery. Laura challenges Jessie to be more present and grounded. While these seem to be opposing energies, they work in unison. They create balance.

They both find healing and solace in movement and while their preferred movement types (Dance and Yoga, respectively ) are viewed as different, they find them be quite similar and complementary– Yin and Yang. Throughout the retreat, Jessie and Laura will use these forms of movement to dive deeper in to who we are at our core and who we are becoming. While guiding you through physical barriers, they will also help you let go of stories you tell yourself, such as, “I can’t dance”, “I’m not flexible enough to do yoga,” “I can’t meditate,” or “I have no rhythm.”

Their hope is that, through movement, discussion, and exploration, you will learn more about yourself and gather tools with which to overcome bigger barriers and stories you tell yourself on a daily basis. Give yourself the opportunity to tap in to your true potential, own your power, see both your soft and fiery side and experience how the two create balance.

Why Cartagena?

Cartagena holds both Yin and Yang qualities. While the downtown is colorful and lively (Salsa lessons, anyone!?) the city also rests along the peaceful and beautiful Caribbean waters. You will be spending time in both settings—another aspect of this experience the separates it from others. Escape your fast-paced city life, explore a new land, and give yourself time and space to slow down and discover a new you.

As two successful women in Boston’s fitness industry, they truly believe that life is better lived with those who challenge you to be open, to be real, who encourage you to get uncomfortable with your growth and who dare you to be different—and LOVE being different.
