About me:
When I am not trail running, biking, swimming, doing yoga or working out you can find me researching running gear, our next running adventure or working on Run Like A Girl’s next big thing. I am a strong believer in following your heart and living through your passions which is how I live my life. I love to help and encourage others to do the same. I have an awesome job, that I love, working at Mountain Equipment Co-op which allows me to be in an environment that encompasses all of my passions of the outdoor adventures! It’s the greatest feeling to be constantly surrounded by others who share the same passions as I do!

About me:
I have been married to my best friend for 17 years and we have a 16 year old son named Chandler. When I am not running or working out, I am spending time with my family, by hiking or watching Chandler play hockey! I am passionate about nature, and getting outside. I dreamed of sharing these experiences at Chakra with my family, and created the family retreat!

Maria Fernanda:
Yoga instructor and armotherapist

About me and your time at the Run like a Girl retreats: It is about focusing on you’re well being during your stay, so that your physical achievements can also evolve into good medicine for your soul! I will facilitate a daily yoga flow, she will guide the interconnection or relationship we will experience with nature and the elements through a multi level practice.
We will also learn about Yoga Sense, which is a  way to come together with each asana through the recognition of our senses, primarily our sense of smell. The olfactory memory, most powerful sense; allows reconnecting with our being in deep levels. The powerful information of plants preserved as organic essential oils are released in the air in key moments of the flow so we can access a blissful practice. We will transcend and become one with nature’s teachings.
