Our Retreats 

The MBS Retreat is a 2-day holistic wellness weekend workshop intended to serve the ever evolving and excelling African American & POC community in an effort to spread the healing benefits the practice of yoga, meditation, self-care and education. Each retreat features themed workshops aimed toward overall health and soul wellness. MBS Retreats were created in response to the lack of  representation and inclusion within the yoga community.
