Stretch Heal Grow is a yoga and wellness retreat for young women with breast cancer founded by Jasmin Fiore Dodge and hosted by a dedicated team of volunteers.

This year, Rethink is excited to be co-hosting young women at the sixth Stretch Heal Grow retreat July 31 – August 2, 2018

The application form to attend Stretch Heal Grow will be available in February 2018.

The 2018 retreat will be held at the wonderful Trillium Resort & Spa in Muskoka Ontario. The centre is right on the water which means guests can go swimming, kayaking or canoeing. Muskoka is also a great place for cycling, jogging or walking.

Retreat offerings include:

  • Daily yoga classes by:  Leonor Mowry from Village Yoga
  • Daily meditation sessions
  • Spa treatments available onsite
  • Onsite swimming, kayaking, canoeing
  • Community building activities
  • Healthy meals prepared on site by a chef
  • Educational Workshop(s)


The Stretch.Heal.Grow. retreat is open to young women (45 and under) who have recently completed treatment for breast cancer and women living with breast cancer in ongoing treatment who feel well enough to attend.

Once we receive your application we review it to make sure you are eligible to attend the retreat.  We ask that all participants be diagnosed with breast cancer, feel well enough to attend and be 45 years of age or younger.  Please consider if you will be comfortable in a group that incorporates women with all diagnoses from Stage 1 to Stage 4.

We give priority to women who have not attended a SHG retreat before. Once the retreat is full we will start a wait list for women who are alumni and if a spot opens up we will let you know.

Once your application is approved we may ask for a phone interview before final confirmation.

Unfortunately, we have limited spaces available and applications are processed on a first come, first served basis in conjunction with the above criteria and answers on the application form. Accommodation is shared and transportation costs are currently the responsibility of the attendee.
