Mindfulness In Action
The Path to Self Acceptance
Earn 20 CEs and walk away believing that you are enough.
You’ve been doing the work to improve your relationship with yourself, it’s
time to put it all into action and earn 20 CEs while you do it.
Before we ask you to commit, let’s make sure you understand who this retreat is for:
You are a smart, successful, and highly motivated individual! Ask anyone and they’ll say how remarkable you are. Yet, you ask yourself how someone with a degree, a job, and goals can be stuck in feeling unremarkable and frustrated by the lack of control they have over their choices. Let’s fix this disconnect darling!
You want to take your inner critic off of repeat and start hearing and listening to your beautiful heart again
You want to flip your internal script from I am so tired to, I am fired up!
You want the way you feel inside to match what those around you already see on the outside
You want to understand research-proven approaches to giving up personal and professional emotional exhaustion for living an empowered life
You are a nurse and want to see and accept yourself with the same love and care that do for others
You want to learn how Yoga can become part of the way you support yourself as a person and a professional
You should join us if you want to move from wondering why someone who looks like they have it all together but feels scattered, numb and frustrated, to being able to accept, celebrate, and nourish yourself at the deepest level of your being. Let’s introduce you to who is guiding you on this journey.
“Clinically qualified, but not emotionally equipped,” describes MOOXLI founder Sarah Bergakker, experience starting as an LPN in the emergency department at the age of 19. This theme continued as Sarah completed her bachelor’s in nursing and began work as an ER Trauma nurse, and then became a nurse anesthetist. After almost 20 years in healthcare, Sarah realized that she didn’t know what she was going to do differently but that her practices of perfectionism, numbing, and detaching from her emotional and physical self needed to change. Sarah started this work to discover if there was a way for her to continue to work in healthcare and find joy in her work. She is so thankful to have returned to the original passion of her calling in healthcare. Sarah will be sharing how self compassion and boundaries can effectively change our habits, change our lives, and ultimately support our own resilience.
Joan Mudget will guide you through daily movement, breathwork and meditation that supports the mind and body in making the shifts that will happen for you on this retreat. Joan’s background in executive leadership, and her personal experience with burnout and addiction recovery, allow her to guide you through deeper introspection. Joan will help you understand how yoga changed her life and guide you in incorporating these simple practices into your daily routine.

Can I get CEs for attending this retreat?Yes! Mooxli is recognized as a provider of CEs by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (a nationally recognized certifier of nursing continuing education). The AANA is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation (ANCC). MOOXLI CEs meet ANCC criteria and are valid and applicable to any and all nursing license holders. The AANP has historically recognized with reciprocity CEs already certified by the AANA. If you provide your AANA# you will automatically be submitted for credits. Not a nurse? No Problem! Just contact your healthcare professional association about how to manually submit for CE approval using the MOOXLI syllabus/program! For instance, do you mean I get to go on retreat AND get CEs?! Yes, yes that's exactly what we mean!
What should I bring?In addition to your personal traveling essentials, here are a few recommended additions: Most importantly, bring an internal commitment to yourself—to breathe deeply, to view the world with an open, curious mind, and to rejuvenate. For movement and meditation classes, we recommend free-flowing, comfortable attire and you can wear this attire during the non-movement based workshops as well! MOOXLI will email you a more comprehensive suggested packing list closer to the retreat.
What if I’m new to yoga or meditation?No problem whatsoever. We all have to start somewhere and why not start here, in a safe place, where you can focus on your own needs? Our intention is to make all our sessions as approachable as possible. And if you prefer not to actively participate in yoga, we give you permission to lay on your mat in any position you are comfortable in and simply be present in your own body. Please follow the recommendations of your doctor when evaluating adding yoga to your exercise routine.
Are MOOXLI retreats only for women?No. This is a retreat built for the needs of all healers. All who are human and have breath are welcome here.
Is there a dress code?Athleisure / outdoor wear will be appropriate for all of our sessions including workshops. We recommend layers and breathable clothing that allows for easy movement. Wear what will keep you comfortable, connected and feeling your best.
Should I bring my children or my spouse?No. Our focus at this event will be to take time away with a community of fellow healthcare professionals and allow space and energy for introspection
My friend wants to come but only do the yoga. Is there a “yoga only” package?Due to limited space availability all retreat events are for registered attendees only. Anyone who registers is welcome to attend.
