Soul Connect Retreat



The Soul Connect Retreat is a specially curated space to press pause for a weekend to connect with yourself while being surrounded by like hearted women.  This fall escape to a serene cottage on Lake Erie is where you will give yourself permission to disconnect in order to reconnect with your soul.



Your permission slip to rest, renew and reconnect with yourself.

Join Soul Connect for a soul-full weekend getaway to Lakeside, Ohio.  For 3 days and 2 nights, we will come together to disconnect in order to reconnect-mind, body and soul.  In our weekend together, we will explore what it means to live soul connected through heart opening yin yoga practices and soul stretching conversations that will help us explore who we are and how we want to show up in our lives.  We will do this all while having plenty of time to nap, walk the tree lined streets, grab coffee, pull moon deck cards, start a dance party, read a book and indulge in spa night.

This weekend retreat will include Coaching + Connection led by Katie Kurtz, lakeside yoga + meditation led  by Debi Darnell, locally sourced meals + snacks prepared by Abra Said, free time to walk the foliage lined paths, explore and grab coffee in the quaint village, or sit on the porch to watch the sun set.

Coaching + Connection

Retreats are a unique space for you to give yourself permission to just be- whatever that looks or feels like for YOU. Katie Kurtz is known for her ability to create a space where you can give yourself permission to do, be or feel whatever it is you need in order to tend to your soul all while creating authentic connection with other women. Each day, Katie will guide you in a Coaching + Connection experience to help you deepen your exploration of who you are all while creating lasting and genuine connections with other like hearted women.

Yoga + Meditation

Yoga and meditation will be offered each day right on the dock facing Lake Erie, a few short steps away from our cottage.  Yoga and meditation will be led by Cleveland based yoga teacher, Debi Darnell. Debi believes in self care and the importance of taking care of our whole self. Her mix of yin yoga and restorative flows will leave you feeling restored and renewed.  New to yoga? Now is a great time to lean in and try it out in a small and brave space with an incredible teacher.  Not feeling it? Yoga + meditation options are just that, options. We believe in you doing YOU when you retreat with us.
