Journey to Wholeness Retreat Re-Cap!

What an amazing time we had last weekend.  We had a group of women from all walks of life come together for an intimate time of reflecting, dancing, eating, and getting pampered.  For a lot of us, this was the first time ever meeting each other.  By the end of the weekend, you would have thought that we’ve known each other for twenty years!  We didn’t want to leave and the transformation on everyone’s faces was evident!  Everyone looked refreshed and rejuvenated.

One of the main inspirations for creating these weekend retreats was to help create a place for women to come and be themselves.  I wanted to cultivate a safe, non-judgmental environment for women to come and be heard, to share their hearts, and to be able to decompress.  We can be so busy sometimes and we don’t have the opportunity to slow down and just be still.  In those still moments, we can get in touch with what we’re really feeling and be able to share it in a place of love and empathy.

Our breakout star of the weekend was Nickey Robin!  Nickey served us tirelessly in the kitchen and bestowed all her incredible knowledge on nutrition and healthy eating.  We seriously feasted on amazing food all weekend!!!  We are so excited to be selling her cook book, “It’s Delicious!  With Nickalicious!”  You can pre-order here….BUY IT NOW!

Of course, there’s no way I could have done this alone!  I had great support and encouragement from amazing women who gave their hearts and trusted me in this process.  I am forever grateful for all of you!  You know who you are!!!  Every single person who came to the retreat came to give and serve and honestly, that’s why it went so awesome!  It was a team effort and we all benefited from it.

I applaud all the women who attended and took the time to invest in their whole being.  We definitely focused on our mind, body, and spirit.  We cried, laughed, had massages, ate a ton, and built long lasting, bonding friendships.  It was an unforgettable time and I can’t wait to do it again!

I’m so honored to be partnered with Vicki Hagadorn.  Vicki is a certified Grief Recovery Counselor and will be hosting workshops very soon.  The greatest gift you can give yourself is to make the investment in your personal and spiritual growth.  Check out her site here…

Judy’s Journey to Wholeness!

I’m really excited to share with you the next chapter of my life.  As you all know, we started Bootcamp Barre at the park in September of 2009.  I never imagined that the little group of friends working out together would evolve into several bootcamps all over Los Angeles and working with amazing trainers who shared the same vision.  Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.  I have relocated to Austin, Texas and will no longer be running my LA bootcamps.  Thank you to all of you that supported me in the last four years!

I have transitioned into more of a coaching role and my new passion project will be hosting workshops, seminars, and retreats.  This is truly a dream come true and a dream that scares me to death!  If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough!!!

Judy’s Journey to Wholeness workshops will give us tools on how to live an authentic, audacious, life through breakthrough exercises and soul movement classes.  I am so excited about this next chapter in my life.  I truly feel called to be an ambassador for helping women live their lives to the full.  All you need is an open heart, a yoga mat, towel, and water.  (No yoga experience necessary)

What- This is my new passion project.  I am on a journey to help as many people live their lives as authentically and audaciously possible!  I will be sharing my own journey and share many tools that I have accumulated over the years.  Being able to share our stories brings connection and courage as we go on this journey.  Be ready to dig deep and shed layers to help you take one step closer to being whole!

Why- I have been wrestling with this topic for a long time.  This has been cultivating in my soul for decades.  I just couldn’t articulate it and didn’t know how to do it.  Living in LA, I often wished I could get away and just connect with God and cry out to him.  I wouldn’t carve out the time, energy, money, etc…because frankly, I didn’t have it.  But not only that, I wished I could get away with my close girlfriends and connect to one another in a vulnerable, authentic way.
My father recently passed away and I was fortunate enough to be there for his last days.  That time was the most special time I spent with my dad.  His death gave birth to this project and has fueled me to not wait another day.  I feel his blessing and support.  I’ve never been more certain of anything in my whole life!

How- I have developed a curriculum and will be working together as we explore what it means to live wholeheartedly.  There will be three parts to the program.

Soul Searching -(workshop portion)
Soul Cleansing -(breakout groups)
Soul Movement -(a yoga/fusion type class to engage your mind, body and soul)

Where- Dates and locations TBA

Much love,
Judy Thureson

Don’t Stop Dreaming!!!

Have you ever gone after something in your life that both scared you and excited you at the same time!?  I hosted my first real live workshop in Austin, Tx! We were sold out in two days and I had to add seats because people were interested in joining.  I’m so blown away and so shocked!  It was such a bonding experience and we had so much fun growing together and learning how to be authentic and live an audacious life!  I’m planning for our next retreat in January 2014.  I hope you can join us!!!

 

Here’s a little sneak peak of what some of our workshop participants have to say….

“I appreciated the honesty, safe place of no judgement, and just finding peace and calmness.  I learned tools on how to be vulnerable and dig deep with God and myself.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“The ability to have a “safe” place to share my deepest fears.  I can now see the things that hindered me from being vulnerable.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“I really loved our breakout sessions.  I got to connect and share with others and I felt heard.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“I really felt like I could be open, free, no judgement.  I really enjoyed the yoga portion and the guided meditation.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“For myself, I really enjoyed getting to know all these ladies and talk in our most raw state.  I liked the guided questions and being able to be completely honest.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“I was really impressed by Judy’s example of vulnerability and listening to people in the group and answer questions.  Everything was great through the lessons, food, positive atmosphere, etc.”
Journey to Wholeness Participant

“Thank you Judy for an amazing workshop today! It was incredibly moving and made me dig deep and really think. I loved it. The yoga was the icing on the cake! Kicked my butt!”
Kelly F.

“Thank you so much for this amazing workshop! I was inspired by all the beautiful women and blessed to have shared this amazing time. I look forward to the next one! …oh, the Yoga…yes, the Yoga…lova ya!”
Sam K.

“Amazing workshop. Judy created a safe and loving environment and we all got to dig deep into our hearts and see what stops us from living an Audacious Life. Doing yoga for the last portion was so incredible- a true mind, body and soul experience! Thank you Judy, great job!”
Vicki H.

“Judy your life and loving heart are so inspiring! The Journey to Wholeness Workshop is a wonderful event filled with wisdom for the heart, soul, body and mind. Love you bunches!”
Paula S.

 

 

I’m so proud of these women and the courage they had to share their lives!  Thank you all for being in this journey with me.  Let’s continue to grow and build each other up.
