True Resilience Retreat - Joan MudgetJoan 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.

True Resilience Retreat - Sarah Bergakker“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.


True Resilience Retreat - Aly McCleanAly has been working in the medical system for over 20 years. She currently works full time as a pediatric CRNA at the Boston Children’s Hospital where she blends her years of practicing anesthesia with her years of yoga practice and mindfulness. She uses guided imagery, yoga breathing, and Reiki energy work in each of the patients she encounters. Ensuring an experience of comfort and healing while going through procedures and surgery under anesthesia.

When working with Aly there is a general sense of ease and inspiration. She will help you discover your own unique inner world. She is a forever student of life and understands that all she shares and teaches is through her. She trusts the divine intelligent energy that exists in us all and has fallen in love in the sharing of her own inner world as a teacher.
