March flew by but a lot of us ladies are still glowing from this past month’s limited edition BeHealthful Retreat! BalancedBabe.com hosted a mini series of our annual women’s wellness conference with a capped registration to 150 guests. We sold out three weeks prior to the retreat with a hefty waiting list which shows that women in Chicago are ready to connect, inspire, and bring forth positive change in the wellness community!
We had 3 introductory movement classes throughout the day, starting with a guided meditation by Ali Wadsworth of Barefeet Yoga, and then an energizing zumba class lead by Leah Marshall.
When attendees weren’t getting grounded with our movement classes, we packed the workshop room with positive vibes during our 3 panels! We learned about branding strategies and self-love from our personal growth speakers: Elyse Wagner, Kate Leydon, Jessica Zweig and Deborah Sakelaris.
Women were eager to soak in knowledge taking notes throughout each panel, especially during the nutrition & diet panel lead by: Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, Jennifer Westerkamp, RD, Heather Crosby or YumUniverse.com, and Jessica Murnane of One Part Plant.
Throughout the entire day our BeHealthful holistic oasis was buzzing and filled with activity from start to finish. We provided awesome services for guests like hand massages from Beespa, Oxygen treatments from Leah Chavie skin care; eyebrow shaping, braid bars, and full facials from Eleventh Hour Salon; microdermabraison from Rodan & Fields; and so much more!
We also gave guests a sneak peak of our soon to launch BeHealthful subscription box, their gift was filled with supplements, snacks, specialty drinks and certificates from our brand sponsors.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with our BeHealthful Retreat, we are a hybrid of a summit, expo, and retreat that brings awareness to holistic health and women’s wellness. BeHealthful’s mission is to motivate women to empower and support one another while celebrating small businesses and brands that are all about the mind/body lifestyle. BeHealthful will be opening early bird registration soon for our 2nd Annual Retreat (which will be a big one!!) this September.
