Leveraging Habits for an Empowered Life

Earn 20 CEs All While Stepping into Your Personal and Professional Power 

Join us for the MOOXLI winter 2024 retreat and go from a desire to change your life and unable to integrate habits that stick, to living into the life you’ve been dreaming about.

Austin, Texas

Monday, January 29th through Friday, February 2nd, 2024

Before we ask you to commit, let’s make sure you understand who this retreat is for:


You have some things in your life that you want to change but feel stuck and are ready to step into an empowered life.  You want these things to be  a part of WHO YOU ARE!


You  move through life with a rhythm that reflects your values around rest, moving your body, and  feeding your body AND your soul


You want to take your current habits out of the driver’s seat and take over driving towards the life YOU create


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  take the same care of yourself that you do of 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 living a life that feels swept along by impulses to one grounded in understanding and nourishing yourself at the deepest level of your being. Let’s introduce you to who is guiding on this journey

Irene Pace

Irene Pace has worked as a registered dietician in a major trauma hospital, just like so many of us, and can relate to the challenges we all face in healthcare. Irene will help you understand how you can be so smart and successful and still not follow through on how you want to live and who you want to be! Irene will help us understand how well-worn neuro pathways are a part of our current habits around healthy habits we want to embrace, food, and places we feel stuck. Irene will show us how we can change our brains, change our habits, and support our own resilience.


Sara Bergakker

“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.

The Setting:

MOOXLI takes your wild heart to wild places and this retreat we are heading to the wilds of the Urban jungle. MOOXLI bought out THE ENTIRE INN CAHOOTS BOUTIQUE HOTEL in Austin, Texas just for you!  You’ve asked for a MOOXLI retreat where you can fly-in, zip over to the venue in a quick uber ride, and spend the week enjoying all the city has to offer in food, art, music, and fun–we heard you and built this retreat just for YOU! But you may never want to leave “Our Hotel,” because you are too busy hanging out and enjoying the indoor-outdoors spaces, pool, rooftop deck, and the incredible group of humans you are about to meet. Everybody gets their very own bedroom in our very own hotel. 

Lodging rates are $297 per night which includes taxes! Retreat attendance requires 4 nights of lodging registration.

Upon confirming your retreat registration, you will be sent an email to book and pay for your lodging - lodging is not covered in the registration cost and is booked and paid separately to help with corporate expense reimbursement guidelines by for hospitals.  If you want to room close to your bestie, just let us know at

By the time your refreshed and recharged self boards the plane to fly back home you will have: 

Earned 20 CEs!

Learned in a supported community of your peers how to listen less to your inner critic and treat yourself with the same compassion and kindness that you give to your patients

Learned what changes you can make in your life on the daily to gain big momentum

Know exactly what you are going to do on the Monday after the retreat, how to handle the Sunday Scaries, and know you aren’t going back to real life, you are going back to YOUR life

Learned how to figure out what the heck you do want out of life and how to get it

Learned that you don’t have to be able to fold yourself into a pretzel to practice yoga and move your body in a way that supports you

"What Sarah Bergakker and her MOOXLI team have created is pure magic.  Sarah took her own experience, strength, and hope and not only shined a light on burnout in the healthcare profession, but she took it a step further and created MOOXLI."
