Move Yourself from Adversity to Power

Move Yourself from Adversity to Power

From October 21 to 28, 2023

Hosted by Amber Joliat and Julie D’Uva, this retreat is for conscious travelers seeking to balance calmness with energetic movement; an opportunity to deeply connect with nature and back to yourself. Inspired by life’s challenges that make us stronger, we’ll honour adversity and the opportunities that help us move forward. We’ll take you through twice daily movement classes set to powerful music. Pilates/Yoga mat work will strengthen the body, cardio will get the blood flowing and slow meditative movement will help calm the nervous system. Immerse yourself in this tropical oasis to fully reset and recharge.

About the teacher

Move Yourself from Adversity to Power

Amber Joliat

Movement teacher

Amber Joliat is the creator of The Misfitmethod, a movement practice inspired by the transformative nature of breath and dance. A trained dancer and artist, Amber has been a movement teacher for three decades. Her method has been described as a cathartic journey that taps into strength and resilience within. By creatively moving the physical body, Amber encourages a release of stagnant energy that no longer serves, to expand into a higher state of being. She believes it’s essential to do the hard work to really know ourselves and embody the art of being present.

Julie D'Uva

Pilates teacher

Julie is an event planner specializing in small gatherings. Her background in sociology coupled with her inherent curiosity of human behaviour informs how she creates meaningful experiences. After years as a student of the Misfitmethod, she was inspired to teach mat Pilates, to share the energy of what our bodies can do for us. A physical set-back with breast cancer put her life on pause, but with determination and a fire inside, she has rebuilt her body. She is honoured to lead others in movement and hold space for those facing adversity.
