Cultivate Wellness Returns to Raise Funds for Wilma’s Transition House and BC Women’s Health Foundation
Spend an Uplifting Morning of Health and Wellness at the Third Annual Retreat at Chilliwack Corn Maze ~ June 23, 2019
Cultivate Wellness Retreat returns for a third year to the beautiful Fraser Valley. This magical mini retreat takes place on June 23rd, surrounded by the beautiful corn fields and apple orchards of the Chilliwack Corn Maze. Genieve Burley and Danielle, Vanessa and Mariah of Cultivate & Co. have teamed up to bring an uplifting morning of all things health and wellness, benefitting Wilma’s Transition House and BC Health Foundation.
The morning starts with participants being guided through THE CLASS by Taryn Toomey led by Dr. Genieve Burley-Howes, DC, ERYT 500. The Class by Taryn Toomey is a practice of self study through physical conditioning. Through simple, repetitive calisthenics and plyometrics, participants challenge the body to engage the mind. With guided instruction and carefully curated music, this Class invites students to witness their resistance to discomfort. The result is an expansive, heart-opening, body-strengthening release. This music-driven, mat-based Class will challenge and enlighten you all while building an incredibly strong, lean, resilient body.
Followed by an uplifting session of yoga, meditaiton and kundalini by Peter + Cecily Elmas of BeGuided. Be Guided was created to support life’s journey. Peter + Cecily stand powerfully and peacefully with participants as they explore passions and create a life that matches visions and goals. They help guide retreat goers to be fully expressed and identify how they can be the best version of themselves through a holistic support approach through coaching, yoga and mindfulness.
After a morning of connecting with mind, body and soul, retreat goers will share a nourishing and wholesome post-workout brunch by The HABIT Project, hear from some incredible speakers, and enjoy a contemporary dance performance titled “This Woman’s Work” representing the complicated relationship and struggles that women alone experience.
