Are you feeling disconnected from your life’s purpose?
Are you stuck in dysfunctional patterns in relationships, with food, or how you show up in daily life?
Do you feel like you are drowning by life’s demands and constantly tell yourself, “I can’t keep going on like this?”
Have you tried to make changes in your life, but nothing seems “to stick”?
If you are ready to get to the root causes of what’s blocking you, create a sustainable roadmap for the future, and have FUN during the process, then Ignite Your Shift is for you!
Ignite Your Shift is a 3-month transformation program that includes one-on- one individualized coaching and an immersive weekend retreat that will nourish your mind, body, and spirit to create the perfect foundation to dive deep into your goals, connect with your purpose, and look at the root causes of what’s getting in your way.
Let yourself be rigorously challenged and deeply nourished.
WHY IGNITE YOUR SHIFT?
Holistic – We take a whole-body approach to transformation providing you with delicious, organic plant-based meals, meditation sessions, yoga classes and rituals designed to integrate mind, body, and spirit. Spa services can also be added for an additional fee.
Boutique – By limiting this experience to 8 women, we keep the group size small to provide the highest level of service.
Lasting Results – There is a reason why our clients call this experience “LIFE CHANGING”! SUSTAINABLE SHIFTS AND CHANGES TAKE MORE THAN WEEKEND. I commit to your holistic transformation before, during, and after the retreat so that you can fully embody your changes at your own pace.
MEET THE TEAM
Marla Teyolia, Your personal guide – I’m Marla and I will be your personal guide and coach. Working with me, you will get the experience, knowledge, and skills of my 20+ year commitment to working with women of color to make sustainable changes in their lives. I have a Masters in Science degree from Columbia University, graduated magna cum laude from UC Berkeley with a BA in Psychology, have studied with master curandera Elena Avila, am a certified Empowerment Institute Workshop Facilitator, a 200 Hr registered yoga teacher, and have practiced yoga, mindfulness, and meditation for over 20 years.
Marisol Ybarra, Your personal yoga teacher – My intention is to empower people to learn, heal, explore, and challenge themselves on and off the mat so we can have a positive impact on ourselves and our communities. My mission is to hold space for WOC to move outside of expectations so they can live their truest lives.
Evita Tenzeno, Your personal chef – The glowing face of a fresher plant-based movement that spans more than two and a half decades in the DFW area and beyond! She refuses to compromise style, taste, or flare for health, compassion, and sustainability in her cuisine.
Walking the plant-based walk since 1988, this Texas native has always been well ahead of her time in her meatless mindset. Constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible with plants in the kitchen, Chef Evita has the ability to craft plant foods with flavors and textures that are so close to the animal-based versions, they will leave even the most scrutinizing food critic licking their lips while scratching their head.
Here is what I know from working with brave women of color for the past 20+ years:
We know how to DO, we know how to nurture and serve and get shit done… but it’s often at the expense of our physical and emotional well-being.
I also know WE THRIVE when we get support.
I’ve created an intimate, immersive opportunity for 8 women to get personal care, attention, and support to make sustainable changes in their lives.
LET YOURSELF BE SUPPORTED.

I've participated in Marla's women's empowerment retreat and worked with her as my personal life coach for almost a year. Being part of the retreat was a powerful experience, Marla put together a program which was able to reach our group of women wherever we were in our life's journey. The exercises helped us bond with one another quickly & in a real way allowing us to be free to share in small groups to assess our personal challenges and create paths to real change for ourselves. The inner growth I experienced and witnessed from the other women was real and tangible.

Marla is a soul awakening vessel. She is driven from life experiences and open to sharing how to discover your next venture. She is someone that has the ability to scan her client. Sometimes it is scary, quite frankly. She comforts when she knows you’re uneasy and allows you the room to scream, cry, and rebel. She’s so easy to speak with and helps articulate the emotions, fears, and hopes that have been living inside of me. Marla is someone I think we all need on speed dial.
Sha R., mother and entrepreneur
I came to Marla wanting to finally break through my money issues. I had been enjoying respect and success in my work, but I still struggled with getting paid. Working with Marla led me to a significant breakthrough - a deep understanding that I am still in awe of today. She helped me see the true meaning behind my unproductive patterns, and gave me the tools to light a new path. I can't say enough about how helpful it has been to have her as a friend and guide!
Alison Fornés, alisonfornes.com
Marla Teyolia is a powerful, nurturing, and inspirational life coach and her retreat was invigorating and inspiring to say the least. The variety of experiences from yoga to journaling, goal setting and delicious tasting and healthy food, addressed the body, mind and soul. Her retreat allowed me to tap into my power and gave me the information and support I needed to gain clarity and move forward. I highly recommend the Ignite your Shift retreat to anyone who is searching for direction and answers.
If you unconsciously say things to yourself like
I can’t do this…
What if it fails?
Am I good enough?
What if no one buys my product?
I’m afraid to put myself out there…
I don’t know how to even get started…
We should definitely talk.
Ignite Your Shift is the experience that can upgrade your fulfillment in life, love, and work

What is Rancho Chico and where is it?
Rancho Chico is a new retreat space located in Double Oaks, TX, 13 miles from DFW airport. It is a beautiful, relaxing compound located on 16 acres near Lewisville, TX. You will receive the exact address when you register for the retreat. There are three main buildings on the property: The Big House and the Little House both have 4 bedrooms and the beautiful renovated barn has two sleeping areas.
Will I have to share a room?
The short answer is no. All women will have their own room with a few exceptions. See below.
There are three main buildings on the Rancho Chico property:
- The Big House has 4 bedrooms, including 1 King, 1 full, 1 queen, and 1 twin day bed. The queen bed is up a spiral staircase and leads to a magnificent room with windows surrounded by trees. It feels like you are in a tree-house. Book NOW as this room is sure to go fast!
- The Little House has 5 beds in 4 separate rooms (1 king, 1 queen in loft, 2 full, and one twin bed). The king bed with a full-bath has a loft area with a queen blow-up mattress that is accessible via ladder. I am not planning on renting out the loft. However, if two friends want to share this space, please let me know and I am happy to give you a discount.
- The Barn has two sleeping areas. One queen bed is in its own room and has a separate entrance. The communal area of the barn has two twin bunk beds, perfect for sharing with friends!
Are the rooms priced differently?
Each room has its own charm. Participants will have the opportunity to choose the room of their choice on a first reserved basis. The only rooms that are discounted are the twin bunk beds in the barn and the twin day-bed in the library as those are not as private as the other spaces. You will have the opportunity to choose your room depending on availability once you register. So if you have specific room preference, I suggest you book ASAP.
What do you mean by plant-based? Are all the meals vegetarian or vegan?
I am committed to your holistic wellness and the retreat is structured to get you into the highest vibration possible. Our tendency as a culture is to eat foods that dull the senses to avoid dealing with the feelings that arise when doing transformative work. If you tend to reach for sweets like I do, you know what I mean.
We will be centering our meals around a menu of delicious, organic fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains. We will have eggs available during select meals. Vegan and gluten-free options are available at all times.
I encourage you to experience the benefits of a plant-based diet. You will feel lighter and more emotionally available for the transformation you seek.
I have specific food allergies and sensitivities. Can you accommodate my needs?
We will have vegan and gluten-free options available at all meals. If you have specific allergies or dietary needs beyond this, please reach out to me at least three weeks in advance of the retreat and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Can I book spa treatments during breaks?
YES, absolutely! I encourage you to get as much bodywork done as possible. Massages must be booked in advance. Once you have registered for the retreat, you will receive instructions on how to reserve your massage.
What is the price?
Early bird pricing for Ignite Your Shift is an investment of $3500 and ends March 1st.
This includes all yoga and meditation classes, workshop instruction and materials, meals, lodging, use of hot tub, and pool during the weekend retreat.
In addition, you will receive:
- one 30-minute pre-retreat coaching call,
- six 50-minute individual coaching calls in April, May, and June to set you up powerfully for the new year
- unlimited text and email support for 3 months following the retreat
- Opportunity to create a network of support with an exclusive group of women
- Private FB group to keep you motivated and accountable and
- One 3-hour group meet-up with all retreat participants in June 2018.
Do you accept payment plans?
YES, I am happy to work out a payment plan with you! The first option is to pay a $500 deposit upon registering for the retreat and then make monthly installments of $1050 for three months. A $50 service charge is added to each payment. If this still does not work within your budget, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out as I am committed to your transformation.
I live out of town and can’t participate in the June meet-up. What can I do?
If you are unable to fly into Dallas for the meet-up, we will teleport you in via online streaming. We’ve found that the zoom platform works best for this.
I’ve never practiced yoga. Are the classes suitable for me?
YES! We will be practicing a gentle based style that is accessible to anyone, from the first-timers to the seasoned practitioner. There are always modifications for any pose that honor your body and how you’re feeling at that given moment.
Do you offer refunds?
Yes, we offer refunds (minus $250 of your deposit) if you are not able to attend the retreat based on the following schedule:
