A unique retreat for special-needs mamas to feel nurtured and supported 

Created by A special-needs mama, Tanya Savva

Rest & Reset Retreat is a beautiful two day / two night retreat specifically developed for special mamas offering love and care to children living with additional needs. 

This carefully designed weekend offers a unique space to rest, rejuvenate and reset from the crazy demands of caring, supporting, advocating and planning a life around the complex needs of our beautiful angels. 

Do you remember who you were before your days were dictated by the needs of your children? Do you remember the essence of your true Self, before you became a mother? It’s time to nurture your weary Soul and nourish your body, mind and soul. It’s time to reconnect to the essence of your true Self.

“Give yourself permission to release the layers that suffocate your heart and shun your light. Expand into the essence of your true Self by remembering who you are beyond the labels, late nights, appointments, and therapy
