“MOOXLI is a place of  sharing, supporting, and nurturing. A place for the healer to rest and heal.
All who are human and have breath are welcome here”

~ Sarah Bergakker – Mooxli Founder


There is a place where you can do yoga on top of the world, where the food is as fresh as the mountain springs running under your feet, and where the tradition of coming together to heal feels as ancient as the sparkling stars above. We gather here. To breathe, to move, to heal, to share our stories.

Sarah Plummer Taylor, Marine Veteran, Social worker, 500hr-ERYT registered yoga guide, and author of Just Roll With It: 7 Battle Tested Truths for Building a Resilient Life will be our keynote facilitator for the week! She will be joined by expert negotiator Fotini Iconomopoulus,

As well, Sarah Bergakker MSN, CRNA and founder of Mooxli will be returning to the Ranch this year for a new season of Resilience, Self Compassion, and Trauma Recovery with an agenda of tools for self discovery.  Sarah has curated this retreat based on her recent experiences navigating working a high stress career in health care as a nurse anesthesiologist while preserving her personal values and finding peace and equanimity within herself.

Sarah Bergakker - Resilience & Trauma Recovery Retreat For Compassion Fatigue“Mooxli is born out of the passion that Sarah has as a nurse anesthetist, professional speaker, educator, and yogi. After ten years in anesthesia, Sarah found herself in a state of personal and professional contemplation. During this time she began practicing yoga for exercise, and soon discovered that yoga offered a way to not only  acknowledge her own story but also those of her patients’. By recognizing and accepting the impact of “those we carry” and practicing self compassion, Sarah found a way to start to live and work wholeheartedly.

Giving her first lecture as a senior graduate student at Oakland University in 2009, Sarah has continued as adjunct faculty at her alma mater and a professional speaker. Sarah has served as an instructor at the National Congress of Nurse Anesthetists, as well as a guest lecturer at multiple state association meetings. On her mat, in the operating room, and in life Sarah is filled with gratitude that practicing mindfulness and yoga is part of her daily routine.

Joan Mudget - Resilience & Trauma Recovery Retreat For Compassion FatigueJoan was an Executive in the Fashion Industry, a seemingly glamorous life filled with designer shoes and world travel.  However the job took its toll in stress and after 30 years, she found herself diagnosed with serious mental and physical health issues. Joan took a much needed time out, reevaluated her goals and changed every single aspect of her life.  Joan attributes her recovery to her yoga practice which she has done as physical exercise for over 15 years and once fully retired from the Rag Trade, she dove into the softer side of yoga studying in India and becoming an Advanced Yoga Teacher.

She returned from India and opened a Yoga Studio in her home town of Fremont, Michigan and Branch Out Yoga was born.  The yoga studio was closed in 2020 due to the global pandemic and Joan now shares the gift of yoga with anyone who is willing to leave their comfort zone and get on their mat.  Joan is an experienced yoga teacher and Reiki Master with advanced certifications in Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative, Pranayama, and Meditation.
