I am thrilled to announce the 4th annual Stretch Heal Grow yoga retreat for young women with breast cancer.
As a survivor I want to be able to give back, to offer some way to help women on their healing journey. So in 2013 I started the Stretch Heal Grow yoga and wellness retreat for young women with breast cancer.
I have brought together a top notch team of practitioners who will be our guides through a weekend of yoga, healthy eating, meditation, relaxation, exercise, community and healing. I’m also hoping there will be lots of laughter and few new friendships by the time Sunday rolls around.
Breast cancer diagnosis and treatment changes a young woman’s life in every way. It not only affects her physically but emotionally and mentally as well.
This retreat is a chance to spend time healing their bodies and minds. They will be surrounded by people who understand what they have been through and can share experiences. It will be a safe place to process what it means to live with post cancer treatment or with ongoing treatment.
Going through a year or more of cancer treatment is a huge financial burden and I didn’t want any of the women attending to miss out because it was not within their budget. Sometimes getting away from it all for a few days is a perfect prescription for healing.
That is why the cost to attend for the weekend ( other than transportation) will be covered for the women attending. I am partnering with Rethink Breast Cancer again this year. With their support as well as some fundraising we will make it happen for another group of women!

This year’s retreat runs from Wednesday August 17 – Friday 19, 2016
Location: Trillium Resort and Spa
If you know of a young woman (in Canada who is under 45) living with breast cancer that might benefit from attending please pass this post along to her.
