The Aligned Retreat 2023

at Brentwood Bay Resort

We are so excited to invite YOU to join us *in person* at the Aligned Retreat 2023!

Friday, May 26 - Sunday, May 28, 2023


Save your Spot

- O V E R V I E W - 


It's May 2023 and you arrive to Brentwood Bay Resort. The evening air is fresh and briney, flowing off the ocean. Nicole and Kaila are waiting for you in the lobby. As you walk in, you are struck by the immense beauty and energy of this space.

Tomorrow morning, you will be sitting by the pool, enjoying the weekend away with your best girlfriends (some you're meeting for the first time and you are already life-long friends).

From the moment you arrive, everything is taken care of. Your room has a beautiful view and a big, puffy, white bed. 

Whatever is calling you awaits - total silence, movement, connection, growth, lots of laughs and a few tears, mimosas, a cozy robe + slippies - all of the above.

There are no computers in sight. You are unplugged - not just on silent but actually unavailable. 

Your heart is full.

Life is good. 

The Aligned Retreat is about to begin...

This is a weekend of woo, curated for you


Nicole, Kaila and our fabulous guest speakers will be guiding you through a 3 step process of shedding your old habits and stepping into the next version of you. 

We will use modalities from breathwork to energy healing, movement to meditation.
