Balance Wellness Studio, in Mohegan Lake, will host a self-care retreat for women from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on February 17.

“February is the month of hearts, flowers and love. Women are the nurturers and love-givers. Because we can’t give when we’re running on empty, we’ve brought together an outstanding group of women practitioners and instructors to recharge women’s spirits by leading them on a wonderful journey of self-care,” says Karen (Kat) Symington Muendell, founder of Balance Wellness Studio. “Practicing self-love and self-care enables us to reach our highest potential. This daylong retreat is designed to replenish and celebrate our loving, giving nature as strong women.”

The retreat will feature an assortment of classes that would cost $185 if taken separately, Muendell says. They include yoga, an expert-led discussion, an essential oils workshop, a mini-facial, a self-myofascial release lesson, an intention setting and focus session, and an expressive movement class.

“We will close with a beautiful tonglen meditation to share the love we have given ourselves with all beings in the universe,” Muendell says.

Snacks, drinks, a buffet spa lunch and a “swag bag” are included in the retreat price. Space is limited to 10 participants.

Cost: $130. Location: 1851 E. Main St. (Route 6), Mohegan Lake, NY. To view a full schedule or to register, visit For more info, call 914.374.1471 or email [email protected].
