#PGWPowerRetreat2020 is a wrap!

We can't believe it's been just a few days since we wrapped our very first Power Retreat! What an incredible week!

The diverse group of women who gathered daily in this gorgeous oceanfront villa in Acapulco could not have been more different from each other - single, married, separated, divorced, mothers, grandmothers, and from backgrounds that spanned four continents! But the connections that were forged around the breakfast table + by the infinity pool were undeniable.

Powerful programming celebrates, uplifts + unites women, connecting them in an organic way to make the most of their personal + professional development. Let us arm you with the tools + resources you need to build a life beyond your wildest dreams! Register today to receive updates about next year's Power Retreat as they become available. We can't wait to see you there!

Arrival + Check In

One by one, our ladies arrived in Acapulco. Keeping up with delayed flights was a challenge, but our private driver got every girl to our beautiful villa safely.

Blush Welcome Reception

After a full day of travelling, the ladies settled into conversation, getting to know each other a little better before the Blush Welcome Reception - this year featuring a candlelit beach dinner of steak, chicken, shrimp, rice, grilled pineapple, and even some local delicacies like grilled cactus! (Yum!) All the women looked absolutely stunning in their blush ensembles!

Sunrise Flow Sessions

Our first full day of programming kicked off the way all of our mornings would - with a sunrise flow session on the beach (tai chi, meditation + breathing) followed by a morning workout that left us struggling to keep up with our fearless leader, Sharna Florence of Do It The Right Way Fitness & Wellness.

#PGW30DaysHealthy Sponsored Breakfasts

A special thank you to the team at #PGW30DaysHealthy for our daily sponsored breakfasts that included sopes, huevos a la mexicana, plenty of fresh fruit (papaya, cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple), as well as protein shakes (vanilla, chocolate) + energy fizz sticks (blood orange, pomegranate, citrus) from Arbonne's nutrition line.

Daily, Dynamic Workshops

Jasmine Lee presented the Buy Herself workshop, taking care to discuss the individual real estate goals of each woman, whether they were not yet in the market + contemplating an end user purchase, or looking to expand their real estate portfolios with multi-unit, mixed use properties. Her insight into the buying process from whatever starting point you're at was invaluable, leaving several women excited to continue conversations with her as they move towards their personal real estate goals.

Dymond was dynamic in the introduction of her mantra to these women: loving yourself first, fierce, and for real, a step by step guide in how to lean into your authentic self, unapologetically, opening your heart + life up to beautiful relationships with others + with yourself. In her own words: "I exist to inspire authenticity in the lives of those around me so they experience abundant living, meaningful success and infinite happiness for themselves and others."

Viky + Sharna led informative talks on the importance of a holistic, healthy lifestyle, complete with product recommendations + nutritional guidelines and tips that the women could use moving forward for their personal health + wellness goals.

Fun in the Sun

Between informative workshops + heart conversations, we definitely made some time for some fun in the sun, including a lagoon tour! And after a long day of sunshine + laughter, each woman was treated to a 30 minute full body massage by a private masseuse.

And we can't wait to do it all over again.

We're taking #PGWPowerRetreat2021 to COSTA RICA! Be sure to register for updates so that you're the first to know once details are available + registration is open. 

We can't wait to see you there!
