Living in the dance industry her entire life, she has learned how to “fit God into her busy life”. It is GG’s goal to help women worldwide learn that anyone can make time for God daily, even in an incredibly busy life.

Sheila Smith: Pilates Instructor
Sheila is a Balanced Body Institute-certified Pilates Instructor, having completed her Mat I and II and Reformer I, II, and III teacher training courses. Sheila teaches privately in her home-based studio on the mat, reformer, barre, and chair.
Sheila’s desire is to create an atmosphere where students of all fitness levels are able to strengthen, rebuild, sculpt, and gain their health awareness and potential.
Besides Pilates, she has passion for the Lord and serving others. She is blessed with her husband of 30years, and is the mother of a beautiful 28 year-old daughter.
The mat-based workout is a mind-body practice and will take students through a dynamic, full body workout that focuses on improving flexibility, trunk stability, injury prevention, and athletic performance. Pilates places emphasis on alignment, breath, and the development of a strong core, as well as improving coordination and balance. Core strengthening, one of the Pilates perks, may ease pain, build bone loss, and improve daily life for people suffering from low-back pain. Pilates has also shown to enhance mindfulness and sensory awareness, which may induce relaxation, mood improvements, and stress reduction.

What God’s Gals are Saying About the Retreat
A wonderful experience
First words that come to mind, “Transcending enlightenment.” This was truly a beautifully pure, peaceful, healing, and transformational experience. GG’s retreat lovingly bathed me with a thorough cleansing of the spirit, mind, body, and soul. It also reinforced the love between my daughter and I, and strengthened our relationship by implementing simple tools we learned at the retreat, which we promised to do on a regular basis after we left (still going strong). We created new memories that will live on forever! We will DEFINITELY be back for more. THANK YOU!
Retreat was transformational!
My experience at the Christian Women’s Wellness Retreat was Transformational! I liked that every day was different yet everything we did was geared towards the same end goal.
