Are you looking to shift unhealthy diet and lifestyle habits?
Do you struggle with self-sabotaging behaviours when it comes to health?
Do you want to find simple and delicious recipes to nourish your body?
Are you stressed out and looking for some “me time?”
Are you stuck in a rut with no idea how to get out of it?
Do you want to spend some time in a supportive community, eating delicious food, practicing yoga, and connecting with nature?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then you’ll want to give yourself the gift of a healing weekend surrounded by a supportive community at the Nourish Yourself Yoga & Wellness Weekend Retreat!
Starting November 30th, 2018 Caitlin Iles has got a beautiful, fun-filled, weekend planned at the beautiful Villa Madonna in Rothesay, New Brunswick where you’ll be surrounded by nature and wildlife overlooking the gorgeous Kennebecasis River. You’ll be opening up your body, mind, and soul for renewal, growth, expansion, and relaxation.
I’ve had such a great time hosting retreats in Saskatchewan over the last 3 years that I can’t wait to bring the magic home to the East Coast with another women’s retreat weekend chock full of personal growth, yoga, delicious food, community, and reconnection with nature.
Picture Yourself on a Wellness Weekend Here:
What if you could be freed of that negative little voice in your head filling you with self-doubt and confusion?
Imagine if you could work through that confusion to commit to creating healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
Picture a weekend surrounded by supportive women, breathtaking river views, and acres of walking trails, where you can finally relax and let go of stress.
Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to cook or clean the kitchen AT ALL, while being introduced to new flavours and meals?
How would you feel if you were able to wake up and be guided through relaxing and gentle yoga postures designed to open the heart and relax the mind?
How empowering would it be to have simple, delicious, and nourishing recipes to prepare for you and your family and the skills the do it?
Join the supportive Nourished community and give yourself permission to let go, relax, and take care of your needs for a weekend. Your body, soul, and spirit will thank you!
Check out the schedule below for complete details.

This past weekend was the most inspiring, powerful, soul fulfilling time of my life. I experienced and saw strong and beautiful connections come to life! Michelle and Kirsten didn’t, for some reason, get to say goodbye to each other……so we flagged Kirsten down on the highway so they could have that last one soul connection. What I saw was so amazing (so I had to share😊)….and that’s what life is all about❤ Thank you to everyone for sharing your heart. Just wow! ❤Kimberley Marshall
