Return to the Core of your True Self
Pilates + Yin Yoga Retreat
with Jess Stephenson // True Pilates San Francisco
This experience will lovingly guide you back to your truest Self through Pilates, Yin Yoga, meditation and other creative embodiment practices. The retreat will be held at a beautiful boutique resort in Todos Santos, Mexico, a government appointed “Pueblo Magico,” just a few minutes walk to one of Baja’s most pristine beaches. Ease is the priority, so there’ll be plenty of time to relax, reset, and connect -or disconnect- pool or beachside. Leave feeling calmer, stronger, empowered, and inspired to show up fully in your life!

FIND YOUR PURPOSE
I believe that my life’s purpose can be distilled into three categories:
To be a conduit of infinite love, cultivating loving relationships with mySelf, others, and this world.
I am committed to personal growth and evolution (thereby healing my lineage and paving a brighter path for future generations).
To live in service of Love and offer my unique gifts to the world.
I believe that each of us has unique gifts to share with the world and that true healing can only happen through the body and WITH others, in community. Pilates and yoga have been incredible resources for me to cultivate my own strength and resilience again and again throughout my own healing journey. Embodiment is THE place I feel I can live my authentic expression(s) as a human, and continue to cultivate self-acceptance, love, and the courage to act in alignment with my Soul’s purpose. I aim to empower people by showing them their strength both internally and externally-physically and mentally/spiritually. I LOVE caring for people, and their bodies. I have a keen eye for movement, alignment, and energy flow/direction, and feel that it is my responsibility and privilege to live a life of service. This is my gift to share. The body houses so much history and is a record keeper for how we live and move in this lifetime. I create a compassionate and safe healing space where people come as they are, without judgment.
