CONNECT WITH YOUR CHILD AND YOUR JOY TO GET RID OF MOM GUILT
ON A 4-DAY MOMMY & ME YOGA RETREAT IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
To follow your ‘yellow brick road’ means you keep moving your bigger purpose forward even when you are tired and scared.
Sure, we all find familiar faces on our path like scarecrows (tough decisions), tinmen (challenges), and cowardly lions (anxiety, guilt, and blame).
But you can feel joy and satisfaction every step of the way.
My unique mommy and me yoga retreat is designed to help you do just that:
excite inner balance, achieve fuller health, and experience a profound life.
I used to believe my good deeds could change the world.
My ideas and sheer willpower could get the job done.
Sure, I made a difference, but at a cost to my health and family - I convinced myself it was only temporary.
And then I got pregnant and had a baby.
The effect was exhaustion and multiple meltdowns per week (mostly in the privacy of my own home, so I'd appear calm and collected in public).
In my crazy zealous state, I didn’t fully connect my life purpose with my everyday actions, but instead: I attached my self-worth to my successes (based on what I thought others expected me to do).
Craving something to make me feel whole again and being pregnant with my second, I led a retreat to become a prenatal yoga teacher.
I had an aha moment putting to use what yoga teachers have been telling me for years:
EVERY MOMENT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENT.
I believe that intention is everything.
And so is how you spend your time.
When you fully connect your day-to-day actions with your mission, you’ll find more freedom and growth than you could ever imagine.
Bring together inner joy, and you're invincible.
READY TO MOVE YOUR LIFE FORWARD AND HAVE FUN
With your kiddo?
As a Mommy and Me Yoga Teacher, I understand that everyone’s yellow brick road to happiness is as unique as they are
My passion is helping people be their best, and stop wasting energy where it doesn’t add value to their life.
I inspire my students to listen to your inner voice (the one that brought you here today).
I provide actionable steps so you can be PRESENT for your child and your ever-evolving life.
The way I do that is with mom-to-mom connection.
I believe each of us has unique gifts to share with the world.
I don’t follow any template or yoga school. My style is me. My playfulness, dry sense of humor and eternal optimism, coupled with what makes you unique, gives rise to joyful holistic expansion.
I love working with Moms like me who enthusiastically create solutions and are more than ready to take ownership for creating the day-to-day life of your dreams.

"Jennica's Happy Plan Activity Book is so much fun! I love how it brings together Jennica's love for all things data-driven (and therefore logical and tangible) and that mysterious thing we call 'happiness'. If you're looking for a light and enjoyable way to dig deep into the depths of your own heart, you will LOVE this".
~Cerries Mooney, United Kingdom

"After I gave birth I was stressed out as a new Mom and Jennica welcomed me with open arms. She helped me improve my self-care. Her community involvement inspires me to connect and rejoice with the environment and those around me."
~Geneva W., Joshua Tree, California
THE JOY OF MOTHERHOOD IS IN SHARING IT.
Our time together is my mission:
To help you share your heart, nurture mom & baby, and live your dharma (the big reason why you are here) by doing what I do best- connecting the dots.
The fact that you're here, right now, means YOU are ready.
The way I help you connect is with everyday life-purpose connection sprinkled with nature, wisdom, and a whole lot of YOU. (aka your custom Happy Plan Activity Book and personalized Mommy and Me Yoga Retreat ).
But you may feel guilty about even reading this.
I want you to know, your only job in this life is to follow your heart. That is how you can be of the highest service; when you are in your highest joy.
And the world really needs you right now- oozing with so much joy that your family, friends, and co-workers can't help but smile, too. This is living your dharma.
So many of us are on the quest for happiness but I’m going to fill you in on a secret:
Your baby's happiness is not your purpose. Your baby's happiness is a byproduct of living your purpose.
You cannot truly be happy until
You connect your day-to-day life with your purpose.
Otherwise, there will forever be a void that you are trying to itch with another accomplishment, another goal, or even another baby.
So together we will align your 'happy statement' with your daily life while in a healing setting so you tune into your children and your own infinite potential that you were born to share.
"I had no idea where to start or what to do in certain areas, but Jennica was very resourceful and made everything go ahead smoothly. I learned something new and was very motivated. It's nice working with Jennica because she's also driven and gets results. She delivered."
~ Markisha K., Colorado Springs, Colorado
Your 4-Day Mommy and Me Yoga Retreat and four-week mentorship experience costs $2896-$9996USD depending on the location and size of group.
Payment plans are available.
But I want more than your money.
I want you to give me days away from distractions so you can be in the NOW for your child and your own personal growth and spend the next four weeks making it your reality.
I want your time with me to be an investment in your bliss, your family, and in putting in the work it takes to create a life that is full of joy so you can stop feeling so guilty.
And when you choose to invest in your child and yourself, you are making it possible for other Mamas without the financial means to benefit too.
MOVE FORWARD AS A MOM AND PERSON...
But let me guess, you can't get away.
You can't not get away.
You have to separate your identity from your daily life to create space for you to grow.
All your studying and learning can and should be of service without feeling guilty.
To achieve this transformation in four days is invaluable for your life and your unique motherhood journey.
"Stress and burnout are things I've struggled within my life. When I was going through a tough time a few years ago, Jennica took the time to show me some powerful techniques that allowed me to improve my mental health in the face of challenging circumstances. I still use these methods to this day and it's literally been a lifesaver."
~ Jamie B., Salt Lake City, Utah
HAPPINESS IS NOT A GOAL. IT'S A LIFESTYLE.
This entire program is made for you. If you're nervous or scared, often it's the stuff we don't want to do that our body and mind need the most. Be open to the adventure and let it unfold. Prepare to have fun, learn, and experience a profound life with your child.
How do I justify the money?
We always find the money for what's important.
The fact that you're still reading means this experience is of the utmost importance.
Share your heart with the co-decision makers in your life the way only you can and they can't help but say yes.
Can I bring a support person?
Of course, the people (Grandma/friend/partner) who help us the most, deserve a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend adventure too.
I just ask that you honor that this retreat is for you.
So you can create a win-win without sacrificing your BIG dreams and the bond only you as a Mom can have with your babies.
The cost increases $500 if you're open to sharing a bed with your plus one.
"Jennica is an inspirational force with welcoming energy which encouraged me to integrate more deeply in my community. She is aware of her failures and successes as a learning and growing process that we all should reflect upon to live our best selves and lives. She remains so positive that I can't help but be inspired!"
~ Saniyyah T., San Bernardino, California
Many women choose to bring one child because making one-on-one time is both good for them as a Mom, the child they bring, and those back home who also get unique time together.
I usually include all my kids because that's what I like best, and my husband gets to recharge too.
Listen to your heart to do what's best for your family.
In a nutshell...
We will spend the majority of our time at a spacious and comfortable homestead in Southern California, surrounded by pristine nature.
