Find Your Fighter Within,
The Boxing + Eldoa Women's
Nov 24-26, 2023!
An exquisite experience located 20 minutes
north of Kingston, Ontario, on Loughborough Lake
Wake up your body and sharpen your mind to go after what you want in life feeling like the fighter that you are!
Immediately feel the beauty of BLOOM upon arrival and get ready for an unforgettable weekend!
This complete experience will involve aspects taken from boxing training beyond physical workouts. We will rehearse the movements of a fighter (non contact) to get a sweet sweat by incorporating light drills and basic techniques. We will also be exercising our minds to think like a fighter so that you can leave this retreat truly feeling like the Champion of your own life.
To compliment the retreat, you’ll work with co-host Petra Baethmann, who will introduce you to the ELDOA technique which is a unique form of exercise that targets the joints of the spine, creating space and mobility between the vertebrae. This can be especially helpful for anyone dealing with back pain or stiffness. ELDOA enhances physical performance, mental clarity and calmness. You are in for an absolute treat to learn from one of the best in the business!
For the main event, grab a pen and pull up a cushy chair overlooking Loughborough Lake as Yvette walks you through her popular keynote speech which has gained attention for its unique approach to goal setting and go-getting! This will be an interactive session that will help you to uncover the areas of your life where you feel stuck and provide new insights on the goals you wish to set, the dreams you forgot you had and the deepest desires you have neglected for too long!
With over 20 years experience teaching boxing for fitness, Yvette believes that the lessons and wisdom
we find in boxing can give you a
considerate advantage in all areas of your life
The retreat will allow plenty of space and time for you to relax, reflect and renew your sense of purpose...
Located on over 650 acres of Canadian shield land just 20 minutes north of Kingston, BLOOM the building is newly designed and constructed, with floor-to-ceiling windows, and is mindfully oriented to have a view of the expansive lakefront from every room on the main floor: yoga space, living area, dining area and entrance. The property offers literally miles of lakefront on a very low-occupancy lake, acres of forest with hiking trails, lookout points, fire pit and outdoor dining area.
It is an oasis like you've never seen in Ontario.
You truly have to experience it for yourself.
