Retreat Reviews

The vibe created was incredibly welcoming from the second I walked through the door. This energy flowed from Rachel and Tami to every woman to the point that we felt completely comfortable opening up our souls to people who were complete strangers before this day. The day pushed us and was full of tears, laughs and kindness. The transformational retreat unlocked something in me and every woman present. I felt a surge of inspiration from this event and have felt a shift in the Universe that pushes me to be true to myself and follow my dreams. 

I did not know anyone signed up to go to the retreat but I felt a connection to it and knew I must attend in spite of any fears I had of not knowing what to expect or other people.  

I am so glad that I honored my intuition and put my big girl pants on that day and went to the retreat all by myself.  From the moment I arrived to the amazing property I knew it was going to be a special day.  It far exceeded my expectations!

The day’s events were scheduled so beautifully.  Everything flowed so smoothly and naturally.  It was structured so well that it did not feel structured. The activities were all so great. I don’t think I can pick one over the other as a favorite as they were all different but equally great.  And, the food was amazing. Really, the entire retreat was wonderful.  It was just what I needed.


We're glad you have questions. If you can't find your answer, contact us.

Absolutely! Many women attend solo! The welcoming environment is there for new friendships to form and leaves you feeling connected to an inspired community.

The Day of Renewal retreat is held at the Rise retreat home in New Hope, PA. The exact address will be shared after you book your retreat.

Rise is a community where all belong, whether this is your first retreat or you've been to many. You don't need any experience in yoga, meditation or the like; our retreats are about connection to ourselves, each other and modalities for renewing and recharging our whole selves.

Think cozy and comfy! No need to dress up, come as you are and pack your favorite items for hanging out, movement and being outdoors. 

Bring your own yoga mat, water bottle and shoes for walking outdoors according to the weather.

You and your tummy are going to feel nourished! 

Snacks and the chef prepared lunch are thoughtfully designed to give you freshly prepared, wholesome nourishment with ideas to bring home to your kitchen! There is something for everyone  – vegan, paleo, gluten free, etc. 

If there is anything specific you need, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We are here to accommodate you.

We will be immersing in our beautiful setting and breathing the benefits of time spent close to nature. Location of activities will depend on weather, but Forest Bathing will be outside unless it's raining heavily, so bring appropriate attire.

The retreat home is equipped with many bathrooms and rooms for you to change throughout the day.
