About this healing & empowerment retreat

What you will experience

Our third annual 109 Women Empowerment retreat will be focused on healing our past, embodying our present and shaping our future.

There are many things most of us try to keep hidden from ourselves and from those around us, things that caused us pain and suffering. Things that are perceived by our minds as being ugly and painful. Things we would rather keep buried deep down inside than bring back to the surface. But the truth of the matter is that until we don’t come to terms with what happened, until we don’t cleanse ourselves, until we don’t let go and heal all our past wounds, they will continue to have power over us and we’ll continue to be their victims.

Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls our life, and that’s the work we will be doing during our 5 days in Zion, Utah.

About the location

Zion, Utah

Zion National Park is a truly sacred place covering 229 square miles in southwestern Utah and is most notable for its expansive & beautiful red cliffs. With a unique intersection of geographies, Zion is an incredibly diverse landscape home to towering canyons, winding rivers, and gorgeous rolling arches. With so much beauty to explore that has been millions of years in the making, Zion has the unique ability to bring us back in tune with all that nature has to offer while also allowing us to get in touch with our truest self.

About the space

Practice Spaces

We will be practicing our daily yoga and meditation at the beautiful Under Canvas. This glamping site in Zion is equipped with a beautiful platform where we plan on practicing our daily morning yoga and sunset sessions. In open air and with the gorgeous view of the Zion canyons, a lot of magic will happen on this space. In the afternoons, we will have our workshops in the communal tent and also at some special sites around the camp.

Meet the Team

This retreat is not possible without the hard work and brilliance of this wonderful team.

Bee Bosnak

Heal Yourself™

Founder of Heal Yourself™ - a comprehensive yoga method, which gives you the tools you need to truly heal from the inside out. Based in New York City, Bee Bosnak brings her vast knowledge of yoga and meditation through classes, workshops and retreats worldwide.

Her guidance helps practitioners find a deeper connection with their body and psyche as well as empowering them to live life gracefully on all levels.

Shirin Eskandani

Wholehearted Coaching

Shirin works with women who have big dreams and big hearts. She helps them work through their fear and doubt so that they can live their lives with more purpose, passion and joy. Together, they co create Larger than Life goals so that their own lives become their #lifegoals.

Her work is rooted in finding what drives you. What truly makes you passionate about life. Shirin wants your passion to fuel your goals instead of your goals being your passion. Because let’s face it, we’ve all been there. We’ve landed that dream job or found that dream partner, and been miserable because we realize that it wasn’t what we wanted. Why? Because we were so focused on the goal, that we forgot why we wanted it. Shirin brings her clients back to their why. Their deep rooted, soul’s purpose, heart-driven why. Once they find the why, they start living that next level life. A life where they truly know what they want and desire and they go for it.

Kat Short

Kat is a writer, speaker, and champion of stories. Her work is intended to be part cheerleader, part teacher, and part kick-in-the-pants to help you uncover, craft, and share your story with the world.

Still Have Questions?

I came into this experience with unfathomable trauma, anxiety, depression and truly a loss of myself; yet, I left having redefined my self-love and self-care, strengthened my voice, and grown in love for another community and people. Through this week and all the experience beyond, I am learning that I truly am my own healer, hero and leader. Thank you for keeping my heart soft and until we meet again, may 109 continue to change the world with its presence, action and intention.

Caitlin Beauchamp109 Mexico

I'm so thrilled at there being more and more opportunities for women to come together and see how much power we have communally. It is important for our thriving and survival to create environments where women can form coalitions rather than put each other down (which is what culture has been telling us to do for so long). So we truly need that safe space.

Anastasia Standrik109 New York

This experience was so much more than I had expected. The professionalism around a difficult topic, the caring and supports in place for participants went beyond what I could have imagined. The yoga was again very professional, therapeutic but most of all fun! We became life long friends bonded by this mission and I believe that we will all come home and make a difference here in our communities as well.

Lindsay Baker109 Sweden

I was looking for several months for a trip that would help rejuvenate my mind/body/heart and help me stay on a purposeful and happy path in life. When I saw this trip I knew it was exactly what I needed, and 109 did not disappoint! The group of women were all genuine, supportive, and so fun. The personal growth from practicing yoga, learning Muay Thai, and raw conversation was exactly what I needed to experience on the beautiful island of Samui.
