Return to Now....... Healing & Yoga RetreatSeptember 25 & 26, 2021


Looking to reconnect with yourself and nature, and regain some sense of peace and alignment in your life?

Come join us at Spirit's Whisper Ranch for a weekend of reprieve from the day-to-day and a chance to slow down, reconnect and Return to Now! The weekend will offer a unique blend of yoga, meditation, healing and connection.
What makes this retreat even more unique is the beautiful herd of horses that live at Spirit’s Whisper. Horses help us see and experience the world in an authentic way and provide support to those who choose to connect with them to understand ourselves in new ways and find the truth that lies within.
Hosted by Andrea Tesolin (Zen Yoga & Healing), Catherine Henry (Inner Peace Warrior) and Melanie Groves (Metamorphosis Healing), we are looking forward to having you join us for this exciting weekend and are honoured to be supporting you on your journey.

A Little Bit About Your Retreat Hosts

Guiding you this weekend is a trio of powerful women who’s combined knowledge of coaching, yoga, and healing arts expertise will support you wherever you are on your journey. 


Andrea Tesolin - Zen Yoga & Healing

I’m a bit of a beach wanderer, passionate about animal rights, music, food, and an enthusiast of all things ZEN. 
I fell in love with Yoga. So much so, that I wanted to share it with everyone. My field of study includes training and certification in various concentrations: Hatha, YIN, Restorative and Pre Natal-Yoga. As well as Meditation, Chakras and Essential Oils. 
In 2020 I became certified in level 1 and 2 Reiki Healing.
I feel so honoured and grateful to be one of your host/guides at this special event, and I’m so looking forward to spending a beautiful weekend with all of you, as we tune out… and then tune in. 


Catherine Henry - Inner Peace Warrior

Since 2013 I have been on a journey to healing and finding my inner peace. This journey led me to becoming an Intuitive Life Coach, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200hr), Reiki Master and meditation and mindfulness guide. I am passionate about helping others and supporting them on their own path to becoming an inner peace warrior.

With over 7 years of improv experience, I also love to inject humour and fun into what I do, because after all, laughter is the best medicine!

I am honoured to be helping guide you on this beautiful healing and transformative weekend, and excited to be sharing it with these two amazing women, Andrea and Mel. 


Melanie Groves - Metamorphosis Healing

One taste of Huna and I was hooked and felt the call to share with everyone so naturally I studied to become a Huna practitioner. I am also certified in Reiki, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or tapping). 
My goal is to share healing with as many as possible to help guide those I work with in their transformation back to wholeness.
I am so very excited to be partnering with the amazing Andrea & Catherine and to be welcoming you and guiding you on this transformative weekend.
