You may LOVE this retreat if you:

  • Need time to "just be"

What to Expect

No matter the age or stage, the role of motherhood may often feel isolating or present social or mental challenges for many. This day retreat is a special time to connect with a friend or even make new ones. Designed to be interactive, resourceful, light-hearted, and fun, this morning event should leave you rejuvenated and inspired. 

All activities and presentations offered have been thoughtfully put together, and we hope you'll find value in the offerings. We also honor and respect the desire to "opt out" of any particular portion, so a quiet, meditative space as well as a make-and-take activity area are always open to receive.

Only infants in arms are welcome. This motherhood experience is truly a time for self-care.

You can look forward to:

  • an opening circle of introductions

  • a walk/run choice to symbolize the "marathon of motherhood"

  • interactive presentations from local pelvic floor therapists

  • dry-needling

  • breath work, meditations, and journaling

  • relaxing yoga 

  • fitness demonstrations and exercises just for moms

  • a meditative sound bath experience

  • perinatal mental health screenings

  • hair/scalp treatments and recipes from local estheticians

  • hands-on activities to lower stress levels

  • a sensory meditation/prayer corner

  • make & take succulent station 

  • a healthy boxed snack and hydration

  • health and wellness demos

  • chances to win donated prizes

  • a FULL goody bag including themed items, T-Shirt, and  more

  • portions of your ticket sale being donated to a local nonprofit

  • the morning with like-minded women in all stages of motherhood

Meet Your Facilitators


Jeanette Cole
Nonna, Mama, Me

Offering: Yoga Class, Meditation & Journaling,  Breastfeeding Circle

Putting together this Motherhood Retreat would not have been possible without the amazing support and connections of the others facilitating this event. Getting to this point has been an amazing adventure. After a traumatic birth 5 years ago, I decided to pursue a calling that would allow other women to be supported in birth, nourishing their babes, and moving their bodies alongside their children. Thus, Nonna Mama Me was born. Based on the birthing ways and traditions of our ancestors while connecting to modern-day research based evidence, this maternal wellness business offers full spectrum mindfulness practices to carry the individual from birth to senior. Rooted in doula and lactation support and yoga from babes all the way to seniors, the offerings encompass the namesake and who we truly are. Whether I'm attending your birth, by your side as you nourish your babe, stretching with Little Yogi's, or moving with my seasoned yogi's, I'm doing it all with the intention that mindfulness is for everyone at any life stage.

Calko Pelvic
Rehabilitation & Wellness

Offering: Pelvic Floor Discussion & Dry Needling Demo

I entered the world of pelvic floor therapy after experiencing severe pelvic pain and trauma from the birth of my first daughter and wanting to provide the healing and skilled guidance to other women within the local community. Mothers of all stages of life often silently deal with urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. In fact, it's estimated that about 50% of women (maybe even more!) will experience some sort of pelvic dysfunction like this. These conditions and their symptoms can often have women feeling embarrassed and even scared. This presentation will provide education on these conditions along with specific, easy-to-implement prevention strategies and hands-on skills that busy moms can utilize immediately to improve and avoid these common women's health conditions. Following the presentation, I will provide free breathing and posture screens, along with direct, tailored feedback so these mamas can begin preventing and reducing the symptoms of incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. I also provide dry needling services and will discuss benefits of it.

Offering: Mobility and Movement Benefits & Home Exercise Routine Demo

As a personal trainer, yoga instructor, and mom, I am acutely aware of the role exercise plays in not only our physical wellness but our mental well-being, too. I’m also aware that it’s SO HARD for us to carve out focused, dedicated time to ourselves for self-care, so my approach for my own personal exercise program as well as that of my clients is to make exercise attainable, realistic, easier to understand, and enjoyable. If we don’t like it, or if it’s not realistic for US, we’re not going to do it. Building and preserving muscle has a lot of health benefits and is something we should all do forever, so we should like it, right? My goal is to help moms find their exercise personality, cultivate consistency, and make permanent positive changes to their lifestyle and the way we view exercise. I specialize in helping mamas reach their fitness goals with online personal training; one-on-one coaching, the same fully customized program I would provide in-person, but delivered via my app instead of face-to-face… scheduled on your calendar for you to complete on YOUR time.

Offering: Perinatal Depression/Anxiety Screenings & Flamingo Effect Activity 

The path to healing and wellness is within reach for everyone. Taking time and making space for one’s self is one of the kindest things we can do, and yet it can be challenging when we get swept up in the day to day of our lives. I believe that tools for strengthening our resilience, so that we can learn to thrive in the face of life’s challenges, should be accessible to everyone. Screening for perinatal mood disorders can be the first step in that wellness journey.

Offering: Slow Flow Yoga Class for Moms in All Life Stages 

I am passionate about yoga for moms because first and foremost it provides a space for community. Secondly, yoga provides an opportunity to move through both the physical and emotional tension that motherhood can bring. And third, movement provides an opportunity to quiet the mind just enough to determine both needs and wants--both of which can sometimes get overlooked amongst everything on a mother's plate!

I Am Me Life Coaching

Offering: Breath Work Session & Sharing the Process Together

I am passionate about women being madly in love with themselves and authentic. I believe we are able to change the world with our hearts when our cups are full. Breathwork is one of many modalities that can bring us out of survival mind and transition us into our bodies for rest and healing. Moms tend to be in a giving role most of their day, and this practice can help to reduce physical, mental and emotional stress, promote grounding/centeredness and increase their capacity for love, joy and peace. I create safe spaces for women to turn their focus inward and return to the core of themselves. I guide them through the process of releasing mindsets and habits that produce overwhelm and overextension. Together we create practices that nurture self-love and care so that they can continue to positively impact the world around them.

Offering: Pelvic Floor Anatomy & Core Activation Activity

I love helping women feel their best throughout their transition to motherhood and postpartum. It can be a very challenging time for women, so having the support from a pelvic floor PT physically can really improve their quality of life. The goal of my presentation to provide education to mothers about benefits from PT and how it can make an impact on how they feel and function. Also recognizing that it is never too late to get help for pelvic floor issues. Whether your child is 2 or 42, you can still invest in your health! Our pelvic floor physical therapists provide a safe and supportive environment to discuss pelvic floor disorders, pelvic health, and women’s health. We have the knowledge and compassion to help support moms and moms-to-be prepare their bodies for labor and activities postpartum.

Calvin Wagner & Maria Lallo - Wagner
Center for Sound Therapy

Offering: Sound Bath Demo 

We have over 10 years experience working with Sound Therapy and the community. Pregnancy can be challenging and stressful. For new parents, especially first-time mothers, parenting comes with a lot of duties that can quickly become overwhelming. It can result in postpartum depression and take a toll on their mental and psychological health. It has been discovered that sound therapy is effective in treating postpartum depression and is good for new mothers. The postpartum experience is different for every mother. For some, recovery is relatively quick and simple. But for most, there are lingering physical and mental symptoms that must be addressed in order for them to heal and continue moving forward.  Sound therapy helps to dissolve worry and fear, while helping exhausted mothers to get the restorative sleep they need. It also gives new mothers the energy and balance they need to be there for their newborns.


Kayla Aluise
Registered Dietician

Offering: Healthy Nutrition for All Moms 

I am passionate about being well: mentally, physically and spiritually. I want to help everyone find this in their lives. This goal can be challenging, but incredibly gratifying. I believe we can heal our bodies through food. One of my greatest loves is cooking, aside from my love for my Savior, Jesus Christ, and my family.  When we can create food that is nourishing, satisfying and energizing, we can foster healthy thoughts and attitude. I would love to work with you as you seek to find your true health and learn to be well. At KA Wellness and Nutrition, I provide nutritional counseling and guidance for a number of different diseases, chronic illnesses or desired health outcomes. This includes diabetes, renal disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, NAFLD, PCOS, infertility, weight management, IBS, Crohn's, performance nutrition and more.
