About Oasis to Thrive Women’s Retreats
Oasis to Thrive Women’s Retreats is a women’s mindfulness, meditation, and yoga experience located, in 2024, in the tropical paradise of Bali. This retreat is deliberately restricted in numbers to keep a sense of intimacy and allow for connections to grow between participants. Our five-day retreat is designed to help you stretch your body, calm your mind, and nourish your soul. Experienced teachers Anne and Cherise will guide you through daily yoga and meditation practices based on the classic teachings of the four foundations of Mindfulness. Nourishing delicious meals and serene accommodations will provide you with the perfect environment to rest, relax, and reset. Our goal is for you to leave our retreat with a new outlook on life and the tools you need to maintain your mindful self.
Your guides – Anne Rodgers & Cherise Vallet
Anne Rodgers – I was so taken with the benefits of mindfulness and yoga with my own wellbeing, I took a leap of faith and changed my life’s direction. I am now a mindfulness educator, facilitator and speaker, sharing my experience with others who struggle with mental health. My focus is on developing self-awareness practices to bring out the best of you. I love seeing the growth that happens in clients as their mindfulness practice deepens. This work is my life and I am proud to say my life has never been better.
Cherise Vallet – I began my personal practice of yoga and meditation around 25 years ago, during a time of great personal change and stress on all levels – mental, emotional, physical. The benefits that quickly began to show up convinced me that this is an approach available to anyone who can breathe! My development into a yoga therapist and mindfulness facilitator has come out of many years of studying and deepening understanding of the intricacies of our human system. We each contain within us all the tools and methods we need to bring balance to our whole system, no matter what condition we are dealing with. It is one of my greatest pleasures to assist you on this journey.
“I absolutely loved our retreat and am still feeling the precious calming effects of this time together!”
Our location – Amori Villas
Consistently rated in the top 10 of the dozens of resorts available in the Ubud area, this hotel is situated in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful, unspoilt places. Here you will enjoy homely, personal service from the concierge, chefs and spa therapists.
Imagine stepping out of your luxurious accommodation to breathe in the fragrant tropical air of the lush rainforest surrounding you. Feel the caress of warm air on your bare skin, and the taste of fresh coconut water to bring you into your day. Hear the call of local birds, the breeze in the palm trees, and the gentle sound of trickling water.
Imagine taking this time for yourself to not only rest and receive the beauty around you in this serene location, but to dive into the quiet space of mindfulness meditation, stretch and deepen into a restorative yoga session, and have your nervous system completely rebooted with a blissfully long yoga nidra practice.
This setting is a safe space for the body to relax, the senses to awaken, and the mind to ease out of its daily ruminations. In this setting you can branch out into the experience of learning through practice what it means to be mindful in all the moments of your life – work, home, community, and most of all, with your Self. Imagine re-entering your world with a feeling of ease and peace, AND with the skills to apply your heart and intelligence into a more balanced, energetic life.
