Take care of yourself


Grow your business 


We can teach you what you never learned in graduate school. If you're like us, we learned how to take care of other people and we end up putting ourselves last in line. As if that's not problematic enough, you add in entrepreneurship and there's a 99.9% chance you will burn out. Stop the burn out! Let us help you learn how to incorporate self-care into your daily routine at work and regain the energy you lost. Not burned out yet? Great! Join us to refuel even more!  Surround yourself with likeminded people who know self-care is a prerequisite for business ownership. You might think that self-care has nothing to do with business strategy but you couldn't be more wrong. It's proven that if a business owner is healthy, their business is healthy. To add to that, a healthy business has a good business plan and strategy which backs up all of the owners decisions.

You need to know who you are, what you stand for and where you want to go before you can be successful.
“Business 101 teaches us, make it a win-win!
— Audrey

Quite your mind, clear out the clutter and listen. From there, we can help you narrow down a niche and rest easy that you can find ideal clients that suit your interests. Unsure of your niche or scared that you'll miss out on clients? No way! General therapists have lower work satisfaction, poorer retention and actually turns out... less referrals!

Remember, niches get remembered!  Are you an introvert? Most of us are! It's the Achilly's Heel of most helping professionals. We're not natural sales people nor do we want to be. Learn how to feel good about your branding and marketing efforts by learning Audrey's strategy that helped her grow her business from 10 clients to 125 clients in 18 months. 

Let us help you create a sustainable, lucrative, and authentic business that feels good from the inside out.
— Kanjana

How do we know this is true? We lived it. The two of us met at a retreat center and quickly started talking shop. We are completely different people but fit together jusssssst right ;) Kanjana is a teacher of stillness. She helps you quiet the mind, find your truth and settle into who you REALLY are, not who think you need to be. Audrey is a teacher of  strategy. She takes a problem and turns it into opportunity. She's an expert at finding the win-win.

I was provided the opportunity to slow down and reconnect with my mind+body. I was lacking self-care and knew that I needed to shift my focus inward and reignite my energy from within. I flew from Chicago to Pennsylvania by myself and took a huge leap of faith that this retreat was what I needed. The risk paid off dividends and a month later I continue to meditate everyday and I have the energy to take on my day. As mental health professional, that value is unspeakable.

The idea of Renew Retreat started out as an idea because we quickly realized that the two of us together solved a problem. While Kanjana specialize in self-care for clinicians through Compassion Fatigue and Yoga Therapy, Audrey brings expertise in creating, building, and maintaining a lucrative private practice. All clinicians deserve a day of self-care for themselves and their business.
