Be not afraid of growing slowly, Be afraid only of standing still.

“I think I feel Self-Love for the first time. I loved and needed everything I experienced. The sequence was perfect timing for me. Breanna, I want to thank you for my journey. It is such a great feeling to have a light and warm heart. Ready to be present! You literally saved my life.”
“I have learned and received so much in only two full days on this Self-Love journey. I came here feeling exhausted, depleted, and in physical pain, and today I feel my cup has been filled and my pain lessened. Breanna put an amazing schedule together for me. I’m so grateful for everything I’ve learned and experienced. This was one of the best gifts I could give myself in this time of my life. Thank you so many times over.”
“My retreat was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Breanna is lovely, I connected with her right away. The space was just what I needed – peaceful, quiet and comfortable. Breanna is very knowledgeable and accommodating. My yoga hikes were incredible! I left my retreat with an overwhelming sense of happiness. Thank you for helping me re-connect with myself and open my heart up to possibility. I am forever grateful for my time spent in Sedona.”

“I am a frequent Sedona visitor, and whenever I stay at Breanna’s place, it is always clean and very comfortable to stay and to rejuvenate. It is located in a very convenient and quiet area, where all the major hiking trails and grocery stores are easily accessed. The place is also surrounded by tall trees, plants and it is very healing. Breanna interacts with guests with respect and a mindful manner. She replies to my questions very quickly when it occurs to me. It has been wonderful to have found her and to be welcomed to stay at her Zen-like sweet room.”

“Breanna’s Self-Love Guest House was so peaceful and immaculate, which could have been the perfect getaway alone. But then having her knowledge in yoga and the best local hikes makes it all the better. Be prepared for perfect setting, great landscapes, and quiet and fun soul searching. I’m going back for sure!”
“I had an amazing stay. It was everything I was looking for and more. I do feel a deeper sense of Self-Love and acceptance! I plan on using the new Self-Care tools daily; especially the gratitude journal. Thank you for an amazing stay. I highly recommend.”

Take some time. Treat yourself. You deserve it.
