Think fall colors, self-care, connection, laughter, wineries, and healthful food!

It’s a perfect time to look ahead to the new year to build a solid foundation for your health goals while enjoying Sonoma wines and local fare. So grab a friend or join us solo, come open-minded and ready for fun!

Where the heck is Petaluma? It’s a quick hour drive north of San Francisco and only 35 minutes from HWY 1 and the Pacific coast. Petaluma sits within picturesque hillsides of wine country/Sonoma County. The bright fall foilage in Sonoma County is stunning and the best time to get outside in it.

Petaluma is a charming farming community with strong roots to growing quality food and wine.  The downtown is booming with locally owned boutiques and eateries.  It’s the coolest community and Lea is so excited to introduce you to her hometown!

Prior to your arrival, Jessica will correspond with you to discuss where you are on your fitness journey and your upcoming goals for 2024.  Based on that information, she will suggest an action plan that you can get started on.  We will have time every morning for hiking, running, walking, yoga and meditation. Jessica will guide you during your stay in CA and will even be available after you're home and settling back into your daily routine.

This trip experience will allow you to create connections with like-minded women and create a springboard for improvements in your fitness and wellness journey.
