RETREAT & EVENT LEADERS
Hi! I'm Celi. A passionate entrepreneur from Venezuela now in Calgary, Canada where I live with my husband Trevor and my son Noah, born in 2021 (You'll get to meet both of them at our retreats). I have a graphic designer and a marketing and communications degree. I also have a serious entrepreneur and travel bug. After working for the global education program Up with People for over seven years in the marketing department, leading youth on a world tour where one of the main components was to volunteer, I understood how important it was to show people the needs of others.
After many years of planning and executing successful events and trips for non-profit organizations as well as corporate companies all over the world, I decided it was time to listen to my call as an entrepreneur. Soul Trips was born in 2017. Wellness retreats with 3 main components: Social immersion and volunteerism, Personal development and growth workshops, and yoga & mindfulness.
I'm the founder of Soul Trips, the soul behind the trips and the logistics queen of it all. As an entrepreneur and leader of Soul Trips, I have found my motivation to continue making unique experiences a reality, from the testimonials of travelers that continue to have life changing journeys at every Soul Trip. I'm always excited to welcome you to our community of travelers!
Leslie Conzemius has long had a passion for health and wellbeing inspired by her personal struggles with illness and autoimmune disease as an adolescent. Her mission is to change the paradigm of health through empowerment and education.
She is a Registered Nurse with experience in mental health and long-term care. She has a Board Certification in Health and Wellness Coaching, and is also a Stress Management and Resiliency Trainer. She is convinced that coaching is the missing link in our health care system. It not only equips individuals with more knowledge on WHAT to do to take better care of themselves, but it also shows them HOW to do it to create lasting change.
On top of being an Integrative Nurse Health Coach, Leslie wears many different hats such as Group Fitness Instructor, Certified 200-hour yoga teacher, professional dancer and choreographer. She traveled the world for five years working for the global education program Up with People, leading youth with a mission of service, leadership and performance. Leslie has performed for hundreds of audiences, done over 400 hours of service work, and traveled to over 20 countries. Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Leslie now resides in Arvada, Colorado with her husband. Together, their mission is to create community and make the world a better place. Leslie “fills her cup” by dancing, hosting dinner parties, drinking tea, and traveling.
Her inspiration comes from her Swedish roots and lifestyle. Moving to the US a few years ago from Sweden, she found there was a need and interest for more of the Swedish values and balance in the American lifestyle. Getting asked over and over again about the healthy art of Swedish living, the idea of Swede Wellness was born! Some of the workshops you will join are centered around Swedish values for work-life balance, healthy eating, daily physical activity and time for reflection. And of course you will learn more about Swedish terms and ideas such as fika, lagom and träningsverk.
With her background in Group Fitness (Power Sculpt, Pilates & Barre) and Yoga (Restorative, Vinyasa, Hatha and Nidra), Sofie brings a great balance of physical challenge and mindfulness to her classes. She is an ACE certified Group Instructor and a certified 200h yoga teacher. Also a singer and musician who incorporates music into her classes whenever she can!
