Heal, Renew, & Empower Yourself with a retreat!


With Dr. Allison Brownlee & Jessica Yaffa

     Our domestic violence survivor’s weekend is intended for women who have endured the physical and psychological impacts of abusive relationships. Our team of experts guide survivors through a series of experiential activities that increase self-confidence, enhance insight, build skills to navigate future relationships, and create a community of women who support one another throughout their healing journey.

     We offer a unique and powerful mind/body approach to healing, that is designed to ensure our participants are well cared for and provided with rich experiences that facilitate growth and healing.

     Over the course of the 3 day weekend, participants will engage in Breathworks, Yoga, Hiking, and Stand Up Paddle Boarding (weather permitting). All activities are tailored to the individual’s physical abilities, and offer a challenging yet supportive opportunity to maximize personal growth.

Join us on our next mind/body/soul wellness retreat done San Diego style! We invite our guests to embark on a fitness and mindfulness journey utilizing our martial science team, clinical team and our recreational therapy team.
You will enjoy all the beautiful things San Diego has to offer from a whole new perspective, surf our shores, paddle our bays, enjoy your morning tea in a kayak, summit our peaks and take in the soothing sounds of our shores while engaging in a yoga or breath works session.
