Women of central Alberta will gather to do all of the above and more on Oct. 15 for the 2016 Sylvan Lake Women’s Wellness Retreat.

Where can one go to rejuvanate their soul through yoga, learn the practice of uncluttering their life and also take home valuable financial tips?

Women of central Alberta will gather to do all of the above and more on Oct. 15 for the 2016 Sylvan Lake Women’s Wellness Retreat.

The full day retreat will see women participating a plethora of workshops in addition to hearing keynote speaker, Rosabelle Daugela.

A motivational speaker, author, educator and ‘joy specialist’ Daugela was chosen by organizers for her ability to capture the hearts of her audience through her energetic story telling presented in a light hearted manner. Her presentations are said to be to be full of ideas aiming to ignite one’s spirit and help individuals to make each day their best.

Guests are guaranteed to hear inspiring stories through Daugela’s skits, pantomimes, animated slides and laughter.

In addition to hosting Daugela, the Sylvan Lake Women’s Wellness Retreat will also have local community leader, Leah McIntyre as a special guest for the day.

This year will mark the 13th Sylvan Lake Women’s Wellness Retreat with the event being organized by the Henday Association for Lifelong Learning.

Donna Arnold of the Henday Association explained the retreat began as a means to fill gaps in learning opportunities available to women in Central Alberta. She added is most looking forward to the wide range of workshops being offered throughout the day.

“We know people have interests or maybe even need help in specific areas, so we really try to have a broad scope,” explained Arnold. “We try to make it a fun day while also having that learning aspect.”

She explained the day has a significant impact on women throughout central Alberta and Sylvan Lake annually.

“For women of Sylvan Lake it means they don’t have to travel anywhere, this event is happening right in their hometown,” said Arnold. “You’ll be hearing from local women from your own community during the workshops so if you want to expand on what you’ve learned locally as well.”

Individuals will be asked upon their time of registration to select their choice of workshops they wish to attend on the day of retreat. Those wishing to attend are reminded workshops do fill up quickly and it is advisable to register as early as possible.

The cost of tickets is set for $35 if registered before Oct. 7 and will be raised to $40 following. Limited spots are available with both lunch and refreshments being included in the cost of one’s ticket.
