Outdoor Yoga & Cacao Ceremony Mini Retreat

This was a wonderful experience!! It was held in a beautiful location and was the perfect length of time to escape from the craziness of life.

I am so happy you were able to successfully take a few hours away from your little ones to recharge. Always love having you around me!

Tammy Cross

I had such a great time and enjoyed the company of others. The mix of Cacao meditation, gentle yoga and walking meditation was perfect. This was a very fun and relaxing afternoon. Francesca led the mini retreat with love and knowledge. I would highly recommend any type of yoga or holistic health with Francesca! ❤️

Tammy it was so lovely to have you join this ceremony. I have loved working with you privately all these years & it is so beautiful to share & grow in circle. Meeting like minded people is so heart warming.


I had such an incredible time with the most fantastic group of women. I was the newbie to the group, and welcomed in with open (distanced) arms. I felt so safe and loved.
The entire mix of the Cacao Meditation and learning experience, webbed with the gentle yoga, and silent walking nature meditation brought so much to my soul in such a compact time. Although allotted a few hours, it felt like a lifetime in a moment.
Francesca led this mini-retreat with passion, knowledge and experience. Everything was perfectly open to flow at its own pace within the trifecta of the retreat outline- not easy to do; and she nailed it!
Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience. See you soon!

Reading your reveiw certainly brings tears of joy to my eyes! It was such a pleasure to have met you in personal finally! You are wonderful person and your smile lit the space!
