Amazing mothers and daughters committing to their relationships. Carmen Ganne from Wildflower Retreats ran a weekend retreat at Halfmoon Haven on the Sunshine Coast. And half day workshop prior to Mothers' Day at Ocean Breath Yoga on Granville Island.

This workshop was held at Halfmoon Bay on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. 
The mothers and daughters stayed in the suites and cottages onsite, and activities were held in the amazing yurt overlooking the ocean.

“Wildflower works with Moms & Daughters to inspire the development of bold and brave women and girls who are unapologetic in themselves through experiential retreats, workshops, classes and private sessions. It asks us to show up fiercely and connect deeply.”

The girls all worked on a secret squirrel plan, that I accidentally spied on. The put together a proposal to sleep overnight in the yurt and then presented it to Carmen for consideration. Each girl took turns to read out parts of the proposal. 
It was so sweet how much thought and preparation they had put into it.

I adored the light in this yoga studio at Granville Island on such a beautiful day. This workshop for mothers and daughters coincided with Mothers Day weekend. And was the perfect way for these mothers and daughters to grow their relationships.

“Being in relationship is our single biggest tool for cultivating happiness, experiencing joy and understanding ourselves and the world around us. We grow and exist in relation to ourselves and others. Reflecting and amplifying the good, bad and everything in between.”

Some more candid portraits of the mums and daughters on one of the hottest days of early summer so far!
