Have you ever dreamed about running a retreat but don’t even know where to start? Well you’re not alone, and that’s exactly why I created the Retreat Leader Summit in Saint Lucia.

With the market for Wellness Tourism worth $678 billion* the demand for retreats is completely exploding. Did you know that wellness travellers spend 130% more per trip than the average tourist (*Source: SRI International)?

And whether you’re ready to start running retreats today or you have a 3 – 5 year vision, Summit is the perfect opportunity to start building your confidence and expertise.

At Summit you’ll be immersed in a transformative retreat experience to educate yourself and build the confidence needed to start running your own retreats. Sound pretty cool? It totally is.

We’ve partnered with Stonefield, a premiere villa resort in the lush rainforest of Saint Lucia’s west coast. This is one of the most sublimely beautiful settings in the Caribbean. Built in harmony with it’s natural surroundings, Stonefield offers a unique eco-resort experience that features private, semi-outdoor villas, world-class dining and a full-service spa.

This is a very unique experience and I’d love you to join us. If you have any questions about Summit, or you’d like to chat and see if it’s a good fit for you, please book a time to chat with me directly.

Here’s some feedback from my retreat participants:

Hey, did I mention we’ll be climbing a mountain? Yup, we’re doing that.

Inspired by Richard Branson’s recent visit to Saint Lucia where he moored Necker Belle and spontaneously climbed the Gros Piton, Summit will include a challenging hike up the Gros Piton volcanic mountain.

If anyone has a passion for adventure and physical challenge, it’s Richard Branson. And you’ll be literally following in his footsteps as you summit the Gros Piton on Day 4!

The Perfect Retreat Destination

As I was designing Summit I wanted to select a location that was both unique and breathtaking. Stonefield Estate Resort was the obvious choice. Situated on a lush hillside, Stonefield is a highly sought after resort is nestled in dense tropical rainforest overlooking the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. The 26-acre property features 16 secluded villas, each with it’s own private plunge pool, offering breathtaking views and a true sense of connection to this incredible part of the earth.

Stonefield is a perfect venue for retreats

Stonefield was designed to maximize the stunning views of the pitons and the caribbean, while maintaining a very intimate and exclusive vibe. With a private villas design, guests are spoiled for choice to socialize at the main pool with other resort guests or chill out at their private villas with their very own plunge pool. Stonefield is perfect for retreats because it boasts:

  • 17 exclusive and private villas
  • 2 designated platforms to host classes and workshops (Indoor & outdoor)
  • Onsite gardens that supply fresh fruit and vegetables daily
  • Custom menus created by the local chef
  • Onsite luxury spa facilities exclusively for guests
  • Onsite management to design a unique experience

demand for your retreat



I don’t mean to brag, but retreats are kinda my thing. I’ve spent more than 15 years designing exclusive events and trips for companies and now I combine all my experience and passion into hosting epic retreats.

I’m a highly trained coach, facilitator, trainer and yoga teacher. I work with top entrepreneurs around the world and help them build passionate and profitable businesses. I’m also host to a wildly popular podcast called Conscious Business with The Corporate Yogi. You can listen to my podcast episodes to check out my style.

I have a very magical way of calling forth authentic power in others while maintaining safety and trust. And when you join me on retreat you will have multiple a-ha moments and develop new level of power and respect for yourself.

“Julie’s leadership was outstanding, she gave the safety and space for each person to explore themselves individually and with others.”   Nicole Beayni

“I would highly recommend you take a Corporate Yogi retreat. Julie’s energy is infectious.”
Sylvia Vyrostko

“I absolutely recommend a Corporate Yogi retreat to anyone at any stage of their lives.”
Nazli, Ten-2-Four Architecture
