Mother/Daughter Yoga Retreat 2018


JUne 9- June 10


Join Iris and Robin for a unique mother/daughter yoga and mentoring experience focusing on life transitions. Hosted in a beautiful Sag Harbor home featuring indoor and outdoor yoga spaces, Iris will lead a playful and accessible 90-minute morning yoga practice followed by a 10-minute meditation on Saturday morning. Robin Giacomo, a wellness coach, will introduce us to a portion of the gROw Method, guiding mother and daughter in inquiry-based written exercises to embody our highest ideals and to strengthen the mother-daughter bond through accountability and support. She will guide us in crafting a five-sentence Creation Statement (or vision) for our Relationship to Self, the life area that maintains the greatest influence on how we show up for ourselves and in the world. Sharing our vision allows us to stand alongside one another, offer mutual counsel, and create forward momentum.  Discover more about Robin at
