#retreattoyourroot

MOST RECENT

Fall foraging can be bittersweet.... it seems everything beautiful and ‘productive’ in nature but that is the contrary. As the plants and trees let go of their leaves and pull their energy deep into their roots lets embody this wisdom by letting go that which doesn’t serve us and nourish our roots. I was feeling sad today that I had no joiners for my plant walk but got some good lessons from Mother Nature today and gathered roots and nuts and am making my burdock, yellow dock and dandelion cordial, recipe will soon be released in the fall issue of @make_minnesota #nourishyourroots #retreattoyourroot #autumnmusings #letitgo #rootmedicine #herbalcordial #burdockcordial #burdockroot #arctiumlappa #rumexcrispus #taraxacumofficinale

New Blog Part 1: Retreat to Your Root CONTENT. A huge part of my retreats is education, lecture, and discussion. Each day there are 1-4 hours of lecture on varying topics including #anatomy and function of the #core and #pelvicfloor, common conditions associated with #pelvicfloordysfunction like issues to peeing, pooping, and #sexualfunction. We also discuss the energetic and emotional components associated with the core and pelvic floor using the #chakra system. Here’s a sampling of #penelopethepelvis and some of my favorite books to teach from. The idea is that more we know about our physical and energetic bodies the more readily we can access awareness of them!

#loveyourself (and your #pelvicfloor!). 6 week countdown until my #Midwest #retreattoyourroot! I’m keeping the ball rolling with my theme of #womensupportingwomen by inviting my good friend, Michele Wilkerson of @yoga7even, to come teach a couple classes. We’ve got 4 days of indulgent #pelvic focused #selfcare planned. This means #yoga classes, lectures, group activities, amazing food, and connecting with our bodies in a beautiful location. I’ve got a few spots left, but this will be my last retreat offering in 2018 so jump on board now! Link to sign up in bio.

I’m on the last leg home from #RootedinWellness in #Morocco and can’t get over how awesome this chickadee is. Bri and I met via the magical world of #socialmedia in @integrativewomenshealth Women’s Health and Nutrition Coaching program in Oct 2015. She reached out to me about sharing her Lady Bits book. I read the book, thought it was awesome and we started messaging about our shared love of the pelvic floor, yoga, and movement to get women in touch with their bodies. We started supporting each other on social media like #facebook and #instagram solely because we loved each other’s voices and approaches to #pelvic #wellness. It was such a sweet experience of #womensupportingwomen. In May of 2016 I believed so much in Bri’smission and approach that I decided to give her book away in my gift bags at my first #retreattoyourroot. In Jan 2017 Bri asked me to be on her YouTube interview series were we discussed #yogaforpelvicpain and planted the seed for collaborating in the future. In Aug 2018 we had a couple calls to hash out what a collaboration might look like and later that fall #rootedinwellness was conceived. Rooted in Wellness would be a version of Retreat to Your Root, but with Bri’s expertise and #womensfitness approach. We decided it would be more of a #fitness and #yogaretreat for women using the #pelvicfloor as the basis for the content of the week long retreat... in Morocco! By December we launched the idea and within a few weeks the retreat was sold out thanks to Bri’s amazing Youtube presence.
The symbolism is not lost on me when I look back and realize it was 9 months after that that Rooted in Wellness was officially born. This past week in Morocco with Bri (and 16 amazing women) was more than I could have ever dreamed of creating. It felt a little bit like an internet date when she and her husband picked me up from the airport in Germany... never actually meeting me in person... but right away I knew this would be an awesome week. Our styles complemented each other beautifully.

So many feels on the last day of our #rootedinwellness #yoga and #fitness #retreat. Some how @femfusionfitness and I pulled off hosting this beautiful group of women in a very far off land! We ranged in age from 25-77 and assembled from all over Europe and the United States thanks to the connecting power of #socialmedia. Pretty incredible stuff!
😊
At the end of every retreat I get such great joy as I watch the women part ways- faces relaxed, guards surrendered, hugs with heart to heart contact, laughter, and the knowing that deep friendships and connections were made. This retreat was 4 days longer than my normal #retreattoyourroot and it was beautiful to see the depth of opening, trust, communication, and joy as the group bonded over the week. @femfusionfitness and I worked incredibly hard on the curriculum and class offerings for the week, but honestly it was the heart connections and side conversations that were made safe by the space we held which were most beautiful and healing. #thisiswhyidowhatido 🐫☀️
A very very special thank you to @surfmaroc and @ema_tr_ for hosting us.

A little #core fitness session with Dr. Bri of @femfusionfitness this morning as we explored the #thirdchakra today. One of my favorite things about this retreat is that it’s longer than any other I’ve led before. This has allowed us to luxuriously introduce the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor and core and then build on the information with concepts and themes like the #chakra system and with physical practices like #fitness classes, #yoga, #meditation, and #breathwork. Feeling very inspired to change things up a bit like this on my next #retreattoyourroot in the Midwest this September. Casiedpt.com/retreats

This pretty much sums up how much fun we are having at #rootedinwellness! Haha! 👯‍♀️💃🏼👭@femfusionfitness is amazing and how have I never had belly dancing on any of my #retreattoyourroot weekends?!
We started the week off with looking at the #rootchakra and explored #grounding and getting #rooted through our yoga practices yesterday. 🌳
Today we moved up to the #sacralchakra, explored the emotional connection to the #womb space, and obviously studied the #booty🍑 shake😂.

Teaching my #yogaforpelvichealth basics class today on the first full day of content for our #rootedinwellness #yogaretreat. Here’s a sampling of the different analogies I offer for people to get in touch with their #pelvicfloor. Different cues resonate with different people and because I can’t feel everyone’s pelvic floor in a yoga class I have to #usemyvoice, #imagery, and different #yoga poses to facilitate awareness in an area of the body that is often foreign to thinking in a typical yoga class. In these clips I give three different ways to think about a #kegel and how feel the active range of motion of the pelvic floor. 🧘‍♀️👍🏼
Yes... I am of course wearing my #myvaginaismagical 👚!

A trip to Sequoia obviously meant I had to be birthed through this magical and majestic tree’s #vagina. Here’s to #adventures, a #retreat to my own #root, and #grounding down so that I can show up and serve others from a more centered space. .

I practiced getting out of my comfort zone this week in an effort to challenge my stability, tap into my creativity, and bring joy into my life (all aspects related to pelvic health and wellness if you can believe it or not!). I was terrified to go to #salsa class, but I dragged @danieatslife (who has a lot more confidence dancing than I do) to come take a beginners class with me and we had soooo much fun! We left with our hearts full, big smiles glued across our faces, and a little extra flare in our #pelvicfloor (s). I was reminded of how much growth and #healing can happen when we step out of our comfort zones, put our pride or fear of being judged by others aside, and just do this #dance of life!
💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
Today is the last day for early bird rates for my #midwest #retreattoyourroot with @yoga7even. For a lot of the women who have come to #retreattoyourroot going on a #yogaretreat is waaaaay out of their comfort zone, but I can honestly say each one of them grew and learned and blossomed through showing up. Come join me Sept 27-30 @_yogahouse_ for an in depth immersion into #womenswellness #yogaforpelvichealth and an opportunity to learn how fostering #creativity, indulging in #pleasure and taking risks can #nurture your health and #pelvicfloor. I’ve shared a many of my participants’ experiences on my blog if you’re interested in joining, and want a little inspiration or reassurance. (Link to retreat and blog in bio).

Receiving testimonials and feedback from last weekend’s retreat is warming my heart! This one really makes me feel proud because she touch on all of these things in my mission statement and why I created #retreattoyourroot (which you can read more about on my blog!)
🌞
“Casie creates a welcoming space for the retreat where you can unwind, reconnect, and learn about yourself while creating friendships with amazing women. She is a personable, open and charismatic individual. Her retreat is filled with pearls of helpful information from yoga, breath, mindfulness, pelvic health, and empowerment. I highly recommend attending a retreat with Casie, you’ll be glad you did!” -L.P. Joshua Tree Retreater 🌵🌵🌵
😊(I’m definitely blushing) You have two more opportunities to join me in 2018 if all that sounds great to you. Join me (and @femfusionfitness) for fun in the sun in #Morocco at the end of July or in #Michigan for an on the farm in the fall #retreat in September (with @yoga7even).

One retreat ends and the next is right on deck! Why? Because I keep getting asked to do them in fun and beautiful places for new groups of #women! I can tell there’s a hunger for more #pelvicfloor info and the awareness around #pelvichealth is on the rise! I hear you ladies 🙌🏼 I booked this #midwest #yogaretreat inspired by my #yogi friends, students, and teacher in #chicago and #quincy, IL after teaching my workshops there this past May. I’m still riding the energy of my #retreattoyourroot last weekend and can tell you... magic happens on these long weekends. This Midwest edition is extra special for two reasons:1. My #soulsister, Michele Wilkerson, of @yoga7even will be guest teaching and 2. I’ve added an extra day for a chance to dig deeper into this material with y’all! 🌞
Happily enjoying summer in Cali, but can’t wait for #michigan in the fall!🍁
P.S.If you can’t make this retreat I still have one space available on my #morocco #rootedinwellness retreat in July! See website for details🙏🏽

@enlightenpt is legit. Good heart, good brains, good person. I’d say I have fairly high standards for yoga instructors and this one exceeded my expectations. She is hosting another retreat in September in SW Michigan and I would highly recommend attending if you were at all interested in my past few posts. #retreattoyourroot #pelvichealth #pelvicpt #justdoit

Man...I’m missing these shiny souls from this past weekend’s #retreattoyourroot. My heart is full, my skin is sun-kissed, and my #pelvicfloor is happy as can be after 3 days of teaching, leading, listening, meditating, and connecting with this very special group of women. We journeyed from from Seattle, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego and LA to meet at the gorgeous @cactusmoonretreat in #joshuatree and indulge in our weekend of #selfcare. We laughed, we cried, we practiced #yoga, we talked a lot about #vulvas and the #pelvicfloor, we meditated, journaled, chilled by the pool, ate really yummy food, and all left with our #hearts full and a bunch of new friends to lean on. I have so much gratitude for the brave women who have joined me on this journey and have become such instrumental components of this offering. A very special thank you to @dririsorbuch for attending and for being willing to share this experience with your patients!🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
🌵🌵🌵🌵
All this sound fun??? I’ve got two more retreats coming up! Morocco on July 28th and Michigan on Sept 27th. Casiedpt.com/retreats for more info.

It was a full weekend in the kitchen, but so worth it! Short on sleep (and showers 🤷🏼‍♀️ ha), but high on life. Loved creating, connecting, giving, and receiving much more in return 💛 Thank you to @enlightenpt, @pelvicwhisperer and all the lovely ladies attending #retreattoyourroot for being such joys to cook for. Blog post and recipes to come! #jenuinely

Fresh morning smoothie to cleanse the system and ease into the day...especially good for balancing hot weather like the desert! Pineapple (goodbye inflammation 👋🏼), mango, banana, ginger (for a digestive boost), coconut milk (healthy MCT fats), greens 🌱, cilantro (for extra liver and heavy metal detox support) #retreattoyourroot

Welcome to the weekend 💃🏼I’m excited to nourish some incredible women at the #retreattoyourroot, hosted by @enlightenpt and @pelvicwhisperer. I attended Casie’s very first retreat and it was literally life-changing! Wishing lots of love and light upon this year’s group ✨

Prep and #selfcare day @thespringresort before #retreattoyourroot #joshuatree. I’ve learned I’m able to offer myself most fully to holding space for these weekends when I dedicate time for myself before and after the #retreat. Just trying to #practice what I preach. So excited to see the amazing group of women who will gather with me in the desert tomorrow @cactusmoonretreat!

These are the last minute texts I have with my dear friend and fellow #pelvicfloorpt the night before #retreattoyourroot. It really just doesn’t get better than this... #ilovemyjob #clitoris #wheresmyclitoris #didsomeonesayvagina #pelvicfloor #retreat #friends #womenshealth #womensupportingwomen #ivegotyourclit
