Are you ready for a retreat this weekend?

This year, I've really learned how important it is to take a time out. It's imperative to our mental health to take a step away from the noise and stresses of this world and relax. This weekend, you can carve out some time for yourself and get away from the noise with the Rouge Retreat at the Remington Suite Hotel and Spa right here in Shreveport.

This event is just for ladies.

From 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., it's all about connecting with yourself and other. You'll begin your day with a sunrise yoga sculpt session. Bring your own mat, towel and water bottle. The rest of the day will be filled with breakout sessions featuring local wellness experts. You'll learn to manage stress with Dr. Kim Woods, receive seven tips for aging beautifully from Dr. Karen Pendleton, and learn about essential oils with Mary Thoma. You'll also receive a hands-on tour of the facilities at the Remington Spa.

Lunch will be provided from the new restaurant in town Stem, with a guest speaker from Susan G. Komen.

It's a day of inspiration, information and empowerment. You'll leave with an ability to take charge and take care of your body, mind and spirit.

Tickets are $20 for yoga and breakout sessions only. $35 for yoga, breakout sessions and lunch. Discounts are available for military personnel. Learn more at
