You Are More

With Simone Cheri, Shawntel White, Oyah Kheperu and Tia Forbes

January 27 - 29, 2023

You Are More is a 3-day/2-night intention-setting wellness retreat for women of color. You Are More is designed to create safe space in community with women who see themselves in one another, share similar mindsets and struggles, and most importantly that have daring visions for their life and legacy. Hosted in partnership with three amazing, radiant women who are passionate about their self-development and purpose, YAM’s facilitator partners and host invite other women to call MORE into your lives.

Because you deserve it.

Two Retreat Experiences to Choose From:

  • High Vibes is YAM’s standard retreat experience and includes daily yoga, daly sound healing sessions, all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), a Release to Receive fireside chat, and a full day of workshops with some free time to process and unwind. This option includes shared accommodations (double occupancy) and the option to add on 1:1 sessions with retreat facilitators for an additional fee.
  • Next Level is YAM’s retreat option for those who want a more personalized experience. In addition to the workshops and activities planned for all retreatants, Next Level participants will also enjoy a private bedroom (single occupancy) in addition to two 1:1 sessions with retreat facilitators included.

1:1 Facilitator Sessions are 60-minutes each and include:

  • Brand Breakthrough Session w/ Simone Cheri
  • Confidence Coaching w/ Shawntel White
  • Sound Healing Session & Oracle Reading w/ Oyah Kheperu
  • 60-min Fitness Circuit w/ Oyah Kheperu
  • Tapping into Emotional Intelligence w/ T. Forbes

MORE retreat perks to enjoy:

  • Pre-treat Virtual Meetup
    We’re building bonds before we touch down through our new moon virtual experience. The pre-treat is an optional (but highly recommended) online meetup for retreatants to connect before arrival day. We’ll also lay the framework for intention setting so you can get the most out of your experience and start the weekend clear on what you came for (and want to walk away with).
  • Exclusive YAM Toolkit
    A curated collection of activities, resources, and services to keep the fun going after the retreat is over. From coaching sessions for your personal development and wellness to technical services to help overcome challenges in your passion projects or business, this hub contains resources from black women-owned and allied businesses that want to see you win.
