Girls Gone Zen

by jenny sansouci on February 8, 2010

Healthy food, meditation, yoga, life coaching, and connecting with your inner guide…all while vacationing in a tropical paradise? Plus…a chance to win a free trip? Read on, my friends!!!

Guest Post contributed by Gabrielle Bernstein, Inc.

No more Girls Gone Wild. The days of booze cruises and Cancun spring breaks are a thing of the past. Instead, young women have refocused their cherished vacation time and savings to healthful retreats. The mentality has shifted from “how drunk can I get” to “how zen can I be.” Yoga and meditation getaways have become the new way to shed negative thoughts and unnecessary pounds, while enjoying a peaceful vacation.

At the forefront of this shift is Gabrielle Bernstein – life coach, motivational speaker and author of ADD MORE ~ing TO YOUR LIFE. Coined by The New York Times’ “Sunday Styles” section as the guru for the next generation, Gabrielle guides her female contemporaries to shift gears and look inward. Her “forget the bling and Add More ~ing” approach to life has influenced her latest venture – a retreat in Costa Rica.

On April 14 – 18, 2010 Gabrielle will lead a Vacation with Your Inner Guide at Costa Rica resort, Recreo, for 4 days of relaxation and personal growth. Gabrielle will guide guests on a journey to connect with their inner guide (aka ~ing), clear their negative thought patterns and celebrate themselves on an adventurous vacation.

Gabrielle has created a way for women to win this trip for free!
