APRIL 19-22, 2024


Spend 4 days in Punta Cana, with like-minded, high-achieving women, and discover a renewed sense of purpose, balance, and holistic well-being... WITHOUT the stress of daily demands, the pressure of constant notifications, or the weight of endless responsibilities.

High-achieving woman feeling the weight of success? Ready for a transformative retreat tailored just for you?

In those killer heels and power suits, you're the epitome of success. Your calendar is a testament to your ambition, and to the world, you've got it all. But behind the busyness, is there a part of you running on empty? Those late-night emails, back-to-back meetings, and that never-ending ‘to-do' list—do they sometimes overshadow the real you?

Each morning, as you savor your coffee and glimpse a reflection, a thought persists: “Is this truly it?” 

You've climbed the corporate ladder, shattered those glass ceilings, and crafted a life that's the envy of many. Yet, amidst the applause, a whisper in your heart grows louder: “There's got to be more.”

Balancing the weight of professional accolades with personal responsibilities can sometimes leave you feeling disconnected, overwhelmed, and on the brink of burnout. If you've ever questioned, “Is this all there is for me?” then it's time for a change.

The OYA Wellness Retreat is your sanctuary. Designed exclusively for high-achieving women like you, it's a space to pause, rejuvenate, and rediscover your purpose and passion. Beyond the daily grind, it promises a transformative journey, a chance to align with your deeper purpose, and a return to yourself. This isn't just a retreat; it's your next chapter waiting to be written.

If you are a highly ambitious woman who is...

Why do you need the OYA Wellness Retreat NOW?

Because in the fast-paced world of high achievement, it's easy to lose touch with yourself. As you approach or surpass significant milestones, the risk of burnout looms larger. The OYA Wellness Retreat offers not just a break, but a transformative journey in a serene environment. It's a chance to reconnect, rejuvenate, and rediscover your deeper purpose. Waiting might mean deeper exhaustion and further disconnection. Now is the time to prioritize yourself, find balance, and reignite your passion for life!

Meet Your Retreat Host

Navigating the sometimes complex pathways of success, I often found myself juggling a million things. Balancing everything, from work to personal expectations, was at times, a daily challenge. Can you relate?

Between the late nights and early mornings, I would often wonder, “Is this it?” Sure, the accolades were great, but something was missing. And honestly, I felt guilty even thinking about wanting more. With so many counting on me, could I really take a moment for myself?

It was during these moments of introspection that I encountered mentors and experiences that hinted at a deeper journey, one of self-discovery and genuine connection. Embracing this new path wasn't easy. It meant challenging long-held beliefs and stepping out of my comfort zone. Taking that leap? Scary. But the promise of true fulfillment was too compelling to resist.

It's from this personal transformation that the idea of the OYA Wellness Retreat was born. I realized there were countless women like me, seeking deeper connections and a space to rediscover themselves. I wanted to create a sanctuary where women could pause, rejuvenate, and embark on their own journey of self-discovery. The retreat is more than just a getaway; it’s the gateway. It's a culmination of my experiences, designed to serve and support women in their quest for a more fulfilling life.

Today, as the host of the OYA Wellness Retreat, I invite you to join me. Together, let's focus on your wellness.

Testimonials from Past Attendees

The OYA Wellness Retreat was the most relaxing, peaceful and thoughtful experience I have every had on a retreat. I really enjoyed the experience and the people who attended.

I would absolutely recommend the OYA Wellness Retreat to others! I would tell everyone to give yourself the gift of wellness. The sessions were thought provoking and help me rethink my leadership on the job. I was able to do the things I wanted to do and it was such a beautiful place.

Director of outreach


The OYA Wellness Retreat was truly a wonderful experience of sisterhood, sharing, feeling safe and connection.

The OYA Wellness Retreat is a great investment, as sometimes as women, we are not always strong, nor can we do it all. We need time to heal, grow, think, be still, to get different perspectives on how to deal with the difficulties of life. I think we can't continue to ignore and not reach out to others or resources that are available to support us on this journey/process of managing our day-to-day life.

The OYA Wellness Retreat was
well organized, fun, and relaxing. I needed a retreat that focused on self-care, and this met my expectations. It is important to “retreat” from your everyday life in a positive and affirming way.

The value of the investment I made in attending the OYA Wellness Retreat in terms of personal growth, well-being, and long-term benefits was
worth it! But can you really put a value on your mental wellbeing? Whatever the cost, do it!
