Serenity Retreats

Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, all live classes, workshops and retreats are cancelled until further notice. We are working to host all of our events “virtually” until such time as we can resume safely and securely. Until then, check out my virtual classes!

In 2014 Helena teamed with Roger and Cheri Hotalen to offer “Escape to Serenity” retreats.  The entire weekend retreat was centered around wellness practices that not only heal the body, but the mind and spirit as well.   After 3 consecutive years at the same venue (Pine Manor), we decided to explore other places that might offer more opportunities for personal growth.  We have spent most of 2017 contacting and visiting various venues which we think offer appealing affordable accommodations where the tradition can continue and grow.

It is nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains and boasts 41 sparkling pools as well as other recreational activities such as hiking trails, tennis, golf and a world class spa.   …READ MORE
