A Gathering of Women: Mother’s Day Retreat, May 12-14, 2017
Join Sheila McVay, Owner of Johns Creek Yoga, and Kim Saunders, owner of Lift Yoga, for an All-Women Celebration of Sisterhood, Motherhood, Nature and Yoga.
Picture if you will…. A gathering of women on a mountaintop… A group of mothers and daughters, of sisters and cousins and friends of all ages, all committed to honoring their unique journey, showing up authentically and connecting from a place of complete unfiltered love and acceptance. Picture the young ones just coming into their power, eyes bright with longing and mischief and adventure. Picture their mothers, standing in the center of their lives, rich with experience, embracing their maturity and womanhood, learning to tend the fire of their souls and nurture their well-traveled hearts. Picture the elders, wise with years and life, full of truth, sharing their stories and spirit. Now Imagine moving and breathing together in this circle, sharing your journey and your dreams, lending your voice to the tapestry, enriching your relationship with the generations before and after, singing, celebrating, learning, loving and leaving rich with the nourishing power of mother earth and authentic feminine connection. This is happening, and we need YOU to complete the circle.
Enjoy daily yoga and meditation, hikes through the beautiful trails around the property, fresh and deliciously prepared meals and time to unplug and nourish yourself.

Venue and Local Area
From the Elohee Website:
“The ecosystems of the Blue Ridge Mountains are exceptionally diverse. They range from moist, deep-soiled forested valleys to exposed ridges, mountain tops and balds. At Elohee we have planned our facilities to highlight these different niches and dynamic energies, so that we may more easily join the plants and animals and elements in discovering our own personal edge – where our growth is new and tender, where transformation is just emerging.
We believe this conscious partnership with the land and nature aids in transformation by enlivening our connection to the force of evolution. It provides the opportunity to explore healing on whatever level that you find as personally meaningful, be that physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
It is in this spirit that we translate El’-oh-hee as “sacred earth place.” In Cherokee, ElohÏ combines the roots ela or elo, meaning earth, and hÏ, place. From the ancient Hebrew, we have Elohim, invoking the sacred.”
This beautiful place of retreat and renewal is the perfect place to dive more deeply into your yoga practice and connect with Spirit. This retreat will invite you to gain inspiration from the breathtaking outer landscape to traverse your own vibrant and dynamic inner landscape. Connect with Nature outside to Nurture Yourself and return to your daily life feeling renewed!
