Palm Beach Gardens, Florida (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Weekend Getaways for Moms, LLC will be offering their inaugural weekend getaway from August 16-18, 2013. Held at the PGA National Resort and Spa, the weekend is designed for women to nurture themselves so they can better nurture their families.
Marla Friedman, the founder of the retreat, had a vision to offer other mothers the opportunity to have a break and focus on wellness. “Mothers deserve a guilt-free getaway where they can connect with other women and relax. So many women today are exhausted and overwhelmed. Taking a weekend to recharge can be invaluable,” said Friedman.
Marla is collaborating with Marla Goldberg, a meditation expert from Chicago who will focus on “the secrets to raising successful children without losing your mind, body and soul.” Other speakers include image consultant Marcella Scherer providing makeovers and Kim House, a chaplain with the U.S. Coast Guard speaking about spirituality. Alice Ostrower; bestselling author, speaker and entrepreneur will provide advice on empowerment. Stephanie Mordes-Ives will offer tips on balanced eating. Yoga and tai chi classes will be taught in the mornings by local instructors. Friedman will donate attendance to the weekend to a cancer patient who is also a mother. As a survivor of thyroid cancer, and the co-founder of ThyCa South FL (Thyroid Cancer Support Association) Marla is passionate about supporting the wellness of others.
The weekend begins on Friday evening with a wine reception by the fire pit. Registration is $399 which includes all meals, wine reception, spa discounts, sessions, and materials. Participants who refer a friend to sign up save $100 off registration. Discounted hotel rooms are available for those interested.
