Custom one-on-one Retreats in Colorado

 For her clients who want to experience transformational coaching and healing in person, Elisabeth can design a custom itinerary to spend time in guided meditation, all levels yoga custom for your body, guided introspection and journaling, active time in wilderness (hiking, cycling or horseback riding), massage, soaking in hot springs, and a blend of holistic health, life purpose, and spiritual coaching. You will leave with a self-care plan with action steps that you can take with you to feel whole and to lead a more fulfilling life.  Contact Elisabeth for a complimentary live webinar to discuss whether this is right for you.

Telluride Magazine published an article about Elisabeth's blend of healing retreats and transformational wellness coaching:

Telluride Magazine

"Elisabeth designed a custom 4-day retreat for me in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. Mornings started with yoga and meditation; hiking or SUPing in the afternoon; then journaling and yoga in the evening.  The pace was ideal with time to sit and reflect as the sun went down. Elisabeth was a fantastic host with an abundance of knowledge on spirituality, wellness and self-reflection. The location is stunning with a plethora of adventure-based activities and natural hot springs to sooth sore muscles. Looking forward to the next one!"

Pandemic Recovery Retreat for Frontline Responders and Public Health Officials

In October, Elisabeth is offering a retreat in southwestern Colorado for public health leaders and staff  (also former public health leaders) and frontline responders to the pandemic (EMS and healthcare providers who cared for those sick with coronavirus) for a trauma sensitive retreat for healing from the pandemic, where we will discuss  how to rebalance and heal both personally and with your communities.  Video describing the retreat is available on YouTube at:  

With a combination of: 

  • twenty years of public health leadership experience including responding to September 11th, anthrax letters and the pandemic.

  • advanced coaching training and experience,
  • trauma informed yoga instructor training,
