Hell YES / No WAY!

Own Your Boundaries

Retreat with Nikki Bruno and Melissa Merres

What’s worth sticking your neck out for? Where are you willing to draw the line? What would it feel like to say “Hell YES!” and “No WAY!” with confidence and joy?  Healthy boundaries keep us whole.

They free us to be fully ourselves, with no apologies. When we set limits and hold true to them, we show the world that we love, trust, and respect ourselves. On the other hand, when we allow our boundaries to be negotiable, we let ourselves down and guarantee that our needs won’t get met.
At this highly interactive retreat, led by dynamic coaching duo Melissa Merres and Nikki Bruno, you’ll explore your unique needs, values, beliefs, superpowers, and desires. Then, based on your renewed sense of identity, you’ll set personal boundaries and prepare to express and defend them. You’ll leave with a solid sense of who you are and what you stand for at this moment in your life—with the added support of an adoring community of incredible women.
All of this in the empowering yet nurturing setting of Dragonfly Yoga Barn Studio & Retreat.  Surrounded by Nature under the gaze of majestic Mount Whiteface, our retreat is located on a quiet dirt road, snuggled on a hillside at the forest’s edge with views that expand over the foothills of the White Mountains, is traversed by streams, and where the keepers of this precious land are dedicated to your integrated wellness.
