Tina Outeiro 

Founder/CEO

Tina Outeiro is the founder and CEO of Inspirational Retreats. After owning a successful accounting practice for years, she noticed what a toll the office lifestyle took on her body and mind. Her health declined and despite her success, she was unhappy and unfulfilled. She realized how important it was to incorporate healthy habits into her daily lifestyle in order to be happier, healthier, and perform at the highest level.

 

Tina turned her physical and mental health around through diet, exercise, and meditation. In the process, she found her true passion and purpose in life: helping others discover the joy of truly being at peace with themselves.

 

Tina is now a holistic health coach, yoga teacher, and Reiki practitioner who has organized and led corporate retreats that have helped hundreds of others improve their health and perform at their best. She has years of experience working with wellness professionals to design custom corporate retreats that improve productivity and efficiency throughout her client organizations. Tina is focused on improving every day and helping her clients do the same.

Kristen Bond

Yoga Instructor

 

  Kristen brings with her 12 years of yoga teaching experience and a deep passion for the practice. The first time that Kristen attempted yoga she was following a Rodney Yee tape that her mom had given her.  She was 16 years old and she had always been a cheerleader and gymnast so the physical aspect of stretching the body appealed to her. It wasn't until 8 years later that she took her first yoga class and began to truly embrace not just the physical practice but the spiritual one as well. Kristen loves taking an "Off the Mat" approach in her practice and in her classes, combining the world of nature with the meditative benefits of yoga. She believes that simply being outside in nature has healing powers. Kristen also holds a strong belief that by setting heartfelt intentions you can manifest your greatest hopes and dreams. All of Kristen's classes reflect her passionate belief that yoga truly has the ability to change the world. Her goal is for her students to not just take yoga classes, but to live a yoga lifestyle filled with peace and love.
