Sun and Moon: A Couples Yoga & Wellness Retreat

Feb 16 - 18, 2024

Resource. Reconnect. Remember.

Relationships can harness our greatest joy but also trigger our deepest wounds. Join psychotherapists and life partners Sean Neesley and Darcy Cavanaugh for a nourishing couples weekend amidst the redwoods. Together we will explore somatic practices, yoga techniques, and experiential exercises inspired by leading couple’s therapy modalities.

Participants can expect to access new ways of cultivating connection, establishing safety, and harnessing the power of vulnerability. Integrating practical therapy tools, ancient yogic practices, and the nourishing natural landscape, this experience will leave you feeling resourced and connected to the love that you both deserve.

This retreat is open to couples of any life stage, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Yoga practices are accessible for all levels, including beginners.

Tuition & Fees:

$990 per couple ($495 per person) + Meals & Lodging

Financial Accessibility: We aim for this retreat to be accessible to all. Please email to request financial assistance.
