St. Pete Retreat
St. Pete Retreat is a space where individuals feel empowered to live a pleasure-filled lifestyle. To fully experience pleasure, connection, intimacy, and fulfillment we need to be present and conscious. It can feel strange at first - like you are a virgin all over again. Social anxiety can rear its ugly head. Getting to know yourself is a process. That is why we are here to help you on this journey of self discovery, intimate connection, and ultimate pleasure! Healing occurs through self acceptance and having compassion and forgiveness of ourselves. You can shift unhealthy behavior patterns and thought processes that are preventing you from having the fulfilling life you deserve. Allow us to partner with you in your journey. We will help you create and sustain authentic relationships. At St. Pete Retreat, you will:
Gain confidence and let go of the fear of rejection
Learn to communicate effectively
Set healthy boundaries
Experience fulfilling sexual expression... you are worth it!
We specialize in lifestyle programs tailored to complement your day-to-day needs. By providing personal assessment and raising awareness of limiting patterns, our clients become emotionally and physically motivated to make the necessary adjustments required to meet their goals. Change from the inside flows out. When we change for the better the outside changes for the better effortlessly. We are 100% invested in our clients and strive to exceed expectations. We care about them as individuals and are delighted to see the transformation of a client’s mind, body, and ultimately, their lives.

Liz Nygaard is a Self Pleasure Practitioner, Empowerment Coach, Embodied Photographer, and mystic, and has been in the field of teaching self-development and nervous system regulation for 3 years. She started with working for a non-profit helping children and their families build a new, healthy way of relating to one another, then moved into the intimacy realm as a Self Pleasure Practitioner. Liz has been doing photography for about 5 years and found that her skills as a healer compliment the experience of a photoshoot - creating a powerful, transformational experience.
