Women's Moto & Wellness Summit
(no motorcycles required)

Women's Moto Summit
Sept 1st - 3rd, 2023
Cheekye, Squamish BC Canada

What if for one entire weekend we prioritized connecting with ourselves and finding a deeper connection with others.

Why WMS

It's always been a dream to create an event that would bring both my moto and wellness communities together. A euphoric weekend that leaves guests coming out of the other side feeling renewed and replenished. Using this weekend to show up as nothing more than exactly who you are, and where you are at. This is a 'choose your own adventure' weekend that can be about wellness, self care and pampering - or challenging yourself out of comfort zone, through activities & conversations, or both!  There is no wrong answer - we are here for you, however you show up.

Ancient self care practices adapted for the modern, busy world, Ayurvedic wellness is the sister science to yoga.  Ayurveda helps you disconnect from our culture of excess and engage in your senses through breath work, movement, meditation and self-massage.  Carlys classes are fun, freeing, grounding, and a self-love experience.

Cheakamus Moto Summit will be filled with certified instructors facilitating yoga, movement, breath work, cold plunges, sound baths & meditation classes. You can attend all or none but they will be available to anyone that wishes to participate. 

 

There will be plenty of old school games throughout the day including corn hole, flip cup, bocce and ladder golf. Nights will be spent hanging by the fire (ban dependent) and listening to live acoustic music played by local musicians. 

 

Whatever the reason is that brought you here, this weekend is all about you. Set intentions, be heard, hold space, belly laugh, look inward and fill your cup. Ultimately this weekend is about creating a space where you can connect with yourself, each other, and the world around you in a positive and empowering way.
