1-Day Mini Retreat

Treat yourself to a day immersed in “Creative Stretching”. Create mini-masterpieces while “Painting with Fire” and sink into the synergy of a supportive, joyful group. Begin the day with light yoga or stretching to release tensions. Soak in Penny’s personal painting techniques during demonstrations. Guided instruction and free-paint-time elicit luscious art pieces crafted from beeswax, pigment and heat. Enjoy poolside treats while dipping toes in the water. Conclude your day by restoring in the saline pool, spa or fireside. Toast to your new friends with cocktails, mock-tails and munchies during our signature closing experience.

“I’ve carefully curated this day to embody exactly what I’d personally like to receive as a gift to myself. The gift of art and soul nourishment.”
