Trip Builder: View Trip
Event Description:
One of our most popular programs, this signature New Year’s program integrates and clears the old and makes way for a powerful, celebratory and enlightening new year! Intention lives here on this magical winter weekend as we embrace new friends, warm mittens and Mayan hot cocoa. Initiate your new year with an invocation of divine grace and wholeness.


Wake up to presencing meditations and guided soulwork explorations that are intuitive, deep and liberating. Playful, fun yoga and healing techniques will balance and brighten your body’s energy centers. You’ll laugh, learn, share and incorporate new ways of being into your life at home. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Dahlonega, Georgia, this personal discovery and yoga retreat is hosted by Soul Nourish’s Shari L Fox & Mandy Roberts?yoginis, friends and soulful women leaders.


Our program begins Friday at 11am and concludes Sunday just before lunch. We recommend exploring the quaint town and local waterfalls with your soul sisters after our closing circle. You can also enjoy a massage or peaceful hike at the retreat center Sunday afternoon. Optional items are marked on the schedule with a (*) and you’ll be responsible for massage/spa appointments and additional wine/beer. Staff tips are always at your discretion based on your personal experience.

Claim your seat in the circle!

If your inner wisdom guided you here, chances are YOU are ready. Can you hear your heart saying: “YES!”? If so, we’ll see you in the mountains.

Soul Nourish Retreats 
Shari L Fox, E-RYT, Enneagram Facilitator & Soul Teacher
My best days happen when someone tells me, ''That changed my life.'' I'm a personal growth facilitator and founder of Soul Nourish, where we combine the essence of yoga with the power of self-discovery. I share practical tools to be clear, confident and present.
Shari creates spaces to let your hair down, understand yourself and re-connect with what matters to you. She thrives on heart-warming experiences and honest conversations. At retreats, workshops, and one-on-one work around the world she witnesses self-aware women waking up to their innate strength, grace, and peace.
Specializing in yoga that nourishes the body-mind, Shari leads soothing, presencing mediations and deeply freeing yoga nidra. Her style flows with energy and grace, blending the roots of Indian yoga with Oriental arts of energy movement. You’ll experience luscious restorative postures that release physical and emotional tension. With meditative guided relaxation, essential oils, and gentle forehead rubs you’ll carry your own post-savasana bliss.
Shari teaches the Enneagram, a dynamic system of integrated psychology and spirituality. Trained by the Riso Hudson Enneagram Institute, she creates spaces to experience the transformative power of this work live and in-person. She is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher under the tutelage of Tim Miller, the Yandara Yoga Institute, and other world-class yoga and meditation teachers.
She wakes up daily to a cup of hot coffee, an inner work journal and a healthy dose of sunshine to the face. Shari gets particularly jazzed about creating the platforms, tools and support we need in human transformation and spiritual movement. She works best with a superfood smoothie and a view of nature.

FORM {yoga} & Soul Nourish Retreats
Mandy Roberts, E-RYT, Woman Leader, Pranic Healer & Yoga Reformer
As the owner and director of FORM {yoga}, a funky music-driven studio, Mandy's passion is to bring an expression of liveliness and authenticity to each of her students. Leaving dogma at the door, she encourages you to face your fears and to go deep into what moves you.
Mandy’s classes are a sweet and often sweaty celebration of life expressed through asana, music, and storytelling. She loves to embody playfulness on the mat, gently exploring and encouraging poses to challenge and empower her students to keep learning, growing (and falling). You will move to the beat of the music and allow the music to deeply move you. You may cry, you will surely laugh. You will make friends, and build community. You will have fun.
Mandy is dedicated to her expansion of yoga by attending classes and workshops to deepen her knowledge of the psychological aspects of life and yoga philosophy. She has studied Pranic Healing with Master Stephen Co and has studied yoga with many accomplished national and international teachers from various schools of yoga. Mandy holds a 200hr level Yoga Alliance Certification through Springs Yoga and Mitchel Bleier Yoga. More recently Mandy is honored to be recognized twice as a Lululemon Athletica ambassador in Atlanta and represented the southeast at the 2015 Lululemon Ambassador Summit in Whistler, BC. In addition Mandy is a proud presenter in the 2014 and 2016 Dirty South Yoga Fest, the 2015 and 2016 Atlanta Women’s Foundation Yogathon, The 2015 Wigwam Health and Wellness Festival, and the co-chair of the first annual Atlanta Yoga Rave.
You can find Mandy in Decatur, Georgia teaching her weekly classes at FORM {yoga}. When not teaching you can find her living life to the fullest, often with a smile upon her face and a twinkle in her eye.
