MomAngeles and SoCal Moms recent SoCal Wellness Retreat, a day for women to take time out to focus on their health and the health of their families, was another hit! This past event, at the Lodge at Malibou Lakes, was another exceptional day basking in the glorious California sun and soaking in all the expertise and experiences at the event. If you missed it you can get a Virtual Ticket to watch the videos online. Also get special offers from many of our partners in our Wellness Passport. You can see more photos from the day on my Facebook page.
The Wellness Bar on the patio featured Dr. Ashley Beckman, Always Play Studios, Pisces Intuition, Nurtured Brain, Arcona and Sleepy Bye Family as well as handwriting analysis from Jenn Levin of Modern Hypnotherapy…
…and intuitive tarot readings from Wild Wisdoms. There was a line all day long waiting to meet with Sofie and get their cards read.
Attendees loved making their own bouquets with Yellow Bow Florals, the company that decorated our beautiful photo moments and backdrops.
The morning kicked-off with our Mindfulness Panel with Chudney Ross, Dr. Daya Grant, Zelana Montminy and Adonica Shaw, to set the tone for the day. For a full line-up of the day and a full list of speakers visit the SoCal Wellness site. Watch the videos online!
The outdoor Marketplace featured a plethora of wellness brands and our Camp’d Out tent where we held Reiki (Caitlin Benya) and meditation (Alison Serour) sessions and a Sound Bath with Always Play Studios.
There were so many incredible moments! Like this fun shot of attendees checking out the Hästens bed, handcrafted in Sweden.
Or the session with Jessica Schatz, the Core Expert, as she helped us firm and strengthen our core. There was also yoga with Dr. Daya Grant and myofascial release with Conni Ponturno of Absolute Pilates Upstairs.
This was just the beginning of our wellness initiatives for 2020. We have a smaller event planned for later this year and the upcoming launch of WELL, a wellness podcast with host Tracy Fredkin, CEO of Fun Family Brands and founder of SoCal Moms.
