Rebels Retreat

ArrowWhy REBELS?

The Urban Dictionary defines a rebel as someone who stands up for their personal opinions, despite what others think. Rebels know who they are and do not compromise their individuality for anyone. True rebels live by what they believe is right (not against what they think is wrong) and don’t just follow the crowd.


ArrowWhy A CAUSE?

This retreat is created with the intention of helping you uncover talents and strengths you’ve had all along. We want to CAUSE you to LIVE your passion and dreams even if it means releasing some of the roles and rules you’ve lived by in the past. You will explore new ways you choose to BE in the world and have the opportunity to nourish your creativity and courage around the things you want to engage in at the retreat and back home. Our SHARE Circle literally serves as a platform to share your insights, reflections and your passion (including your business, non-profit or project.) In our BE Involved day, you will SHARE your skills and discoveries with young woman living in the Dominican Republic as you volunteer at a local youth center.

Hi! I am Robin Von Schwarz,a holistic health coach, yoga teacher, writer, mother of four and grandmother of two! I have lived many lives, starting at age 17 when I trained for a year with the California Division of Forestry. I then served seven years as a fire fighter in the Air Force before staying home to raise my children. After two of my kids left home, I taught high school English and a college preparatory program that focused on getting inner-city kids into college. At age 50, I decided it was time to take my life in a new direction and I started my business, Hunger4Healing, and became a yoga teacher. My focus is nutrition for the brain and restorative yoga for anxiety and depression.

I am excited about my new adventure to the Dominican Republic and hope you will consider taking part in this life-changing adventure with me. If you are ready to step out of your comfort zone, make amazing new friendships, and have the support of a team who is committed to helping you be the best you, I would love to meet you!

Hello, my name is Angelica Gutierrez. I come from the U.S. and currently live in London, England. I am a Transformational, Life Purpose and Lifestyle Coach as well as a Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher.

I started Daretofly because of my own experiences in Life. I had stopped Living on Purpose and therefore began to feel unfulfilled and wondered what was the point of the Life I was (then) living.

Like many of you, I lost sight of my dreams somewhere along the way and forgot that I was meant to be happy, as are you!

My aim in the work I do is to bring You back to your Authentic Self so that you too can Live a Life On Purpose. Living on Purpose enables us to Live the Life we were born and meant to live. That usually translates as Happy and Fulfilled! On that note, I Dare you to Take a Risk, Live on Purpose and Become Exceptional!

Hi! I’m Leah Lund, a Holistic Health Coach, Neuro Nutrient Therapy Specialist, Laughter Yoga Leader & perfectly flawed Human <strong>BEING</strong>. (please notice the word that was bolded) and I appreciate the time you are taking to visit our site.

After years in corporate business leading teams to success, I found myself personally burned out. This experience served as the catalyst for feeling good, creating a new career, attracting new connections and most important- honing a knowing- that we ALL can FEEL GOOD by CHOICE-regardless of our external environment.

I went on to study a very specific, very helpful modality called Neuro Nutrition also known as Amino Acid Therapy. I am honored that my mentor and a pioneer in Neuro Nutrient Therapy, Julia Ross, credits me as being the only practitioner world-wide certified to provide this therapy virtually. I’m passionate about growing awareness to this foundational, simple solution for anxiety, emotional eating, depression, low energy, insomnia, poor focus, overwhelm, burn out and more. This is just the beginning, just the springboard to your brilliance!

My passion in life is to help you feel good on purpose by engaging every aspect of your WHOLE SELF-physical well being, spiritual well being, nutritional well being, emotional well being and mental well being.
