The “Rest in the City” retreat is specifically tailored to offer the professional working woman the opportunity to relax, reassess, and return to the world in a peaceful state of mind. Participants will enjoy wellness activities like yoga along with pampering treats like massages and facials.
Through activities led by life coaches and therapists, participants will have the chance to assess their progress on any goals created at the beginning of the year and/or develop a plan of action to conquer the rest of the year.
Guests will enjoy a catered dinner on Saturday evening and a wholesome breakfast on Sunday morning. Savory snacks will also be available throughout the weekend.
I have never done yoga/don't want to do yoga. Can I still participate?
Yes! The Rest in the City is designed to be a time of relaxation and rejuvenation. Our yoga instructor, Crystal Moore, is dedicated to helping new and experienced yogis to embrace their bodies and grow in power and grace. She accomplishes this by tailoring her teaching methods to meet student needs. (Learn more about Crystal and her practice at http://www.crystalmooreyoga.com.) Therefore, beginners are more than welcome. At the same time, we certainly do not want to stress anyone out or cause anyone to hurt themselves. If you are unable or uninterested in participating in the yoga class, no problem. You are still welcome ar our retreat! You can take that opportunity for a little extra "me time" in our glorious accommodations.
What is "Expressive Arts"?
Expressive Arts is a discipline of helping and healing that uses the arts as the foundation for personal discovery and change and may include the inherently therapeutic practices of visual art, dance/movement, music, drama/theater or writing/poetry. The expressive arts session in this retreat will combine the process of art-making with writing and poetry to assist participants in making sense of their inner world of thoughts, feelings and ideas in a fun and creative way.
Do I need to bring my own magazine or materials for the vision board party?
Nope! Everything you need to create your own vision board will be provided.
What type of spa treatments will be available?
On Sunday morning, "full retreat" participants will be able to indulge in either a massage or facial. (This is included with the full retreat package at no additional cost. Aesthetician gratuities, however, are not included.) As the date of the event approaches, event organizers will contact you to determine which treatment you would like to receive.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The event will take place at Pure NuPhoria Bed and Breakfast in Ft. Washington, MD - just minutes outside of Washington, DC! (You can learn more about the facility at http://purebedandbreakfast.com.) As the venue is located in suburban Maryland, driving is your best option. Ample street parking is available for guests. (Please do not park in the driveway as caterers will need access for meal events.) If transportation difficulties prove to be the primary obstacle to your participation, please please email email@example.com to discuss.
Can I share a room?
Yes! If you wish to share a room, please register for double-occupancy. Note, however, that there is only one suite that has two beds. Therefore if you wish to share a room with a friend, it is strongly recommended that you purchase both reservations at the same time.
Can I pay in installments?
Yes. Because there is only limited space available, if you would like to participate in the retreat, but pay in installments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. All decisions regarding installment payments will be made on a case-by-case basis.
I would like to share a room but that option is sold out. Am I out of luck?
Not necessarily. Although there is only one room with two beds, the beds in the other suites are large enough to accommodate two people. If you wish to share a bed with a friend, please email email@example.com to make appropriate arrangements.
If I share a bed, will one registration of $350 cover me and my friend?
No. Because spa services and workshop participation still incurs a fee for the event organizer, each registrant must pay separately. HOWEVER, to accommodate shared bedding situations, a reduced rate of $200 per guest can be offered. Note that this is only available on a case-by-case, first-come, first-serve basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make appropriate arrangements.
I would like to share a room with my sister/bestie but there is only 1 double occupancy left. What do I do?
Unfortunately there is only one room with two beds; if someone else has purchased one of those beds, we cannot accommodate your request for that particular room. HOWEVER, the beds in the other suites are large enough to accommodate two people. If you wish to share a bed with your sister/friend, please email email@example.com to make appropriate arrangements.
Can I bring my sister/friend just to tag along?
Only registered guests may participate in the retreat.
I can no longer make the event. Can I get a refund?
Full refunds are available until May 15. Partial refunds of 50% are available until June 10. After June 10, no refunds are available.
Can I bring myboyfriend/husband/kids?
The Rest in the City Retreat is for women only. This is your time to relax - leave your man and kids at home!
What should I bring to the event?
Guests should be sure to bring a yoga mat, workout clothes,slippers (optional), and their favorite nail polish (smile).
I am a vendor and would like to sell products at this event. Do you offer vendor opportunities?
Because Rest in the City is designed to be an opportunity for participants to "get away from it all," we will not have any vendors or sales at the event. However, if you are interested in pursuing sponsorship (which can include in-kind donations of sample products, gift certificates, or discount coupons), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request our sponsorship packet.
