Health and Wellness Just Got Real

We’re all for namaste, unicorns, and rainbows. But sometimes, the health and wellness journey feels like anything but “peace and blessings.” It can be uncomfortable and painful, challenging and intimidating. It can make you question yourself and wonder if making it to the finish line is even a real possibility. It can be so damned disrespectful. 

Instead of denying or feeling bad about your journey, The Covet Retreat is, in part, about creating an authentic health and wellness journey that welcomes dirty words. Why not? (Self-care, weight loss, and mental health can be messy, so why not let our words reflect that?) Our program invites you to establish your goals, articulate your whys, and shamelessly own that you’re the “shit.” Because you are, and in a world that often shames people for being fat or Black or women, you can’t be celebrated enough. Our mission is to make you fall in love with yourself over and over again way before you reach your finish lines because in the words of Toni Morrison: “You are your best thing.” The best version of you is who you’re coveting, and we want to help you get there.

And while this retreat is open to women, especially moms, from all walks of life, we emphasize women entrepreneurs, business owners, and CEOs. We know that entrepreneurs, in particular, struggle with mental health challenges at a higher rate than people in other positions. Consider this retreat an opportunity to reclaim yourself after spending so much time and energy impacting the world.

Putting a Little Sass and Edge on Health and Wellness

Harlow is a boss. In all aspects of her life, she leads, and she leads well. She runs a successful company, her children adore her, and she is building wealth, allowing her to make a financial difference in her extended family and community. She’s extraordinary.


And yet, she struggles with her health and wellness journey.


Somewhere between managing racism, sexism, and fatphobia, she finds comfort in eating. Tired of being one of a few people of color in her workout classes and tired of showing up to music that doesn’t inspire her, she started walking. But then, the isolation kicked in.


On top of all this, while the world reveres her, she struggles to find the beauty in herself and questions her self-worth, wondering, Why can’t I get right? She yearns for the day that she can look in the mirror and become proud of what she sees.


We get it. That’s why we created Covet: The “Disrespectful” Health and Wellness Retreat.



My hope is that this retreat will bolster your success as you move closer to “snatching” that waistline, growing in self-confidence, and improving your mental health. You deserve to be the best version of you.

I created this virtual retreat for six reasons:

  • To help prepare your mind and establish a foundation for the work that happens in the twelve-week Covet journal so you can get the full benefits of the journal that was created with you in mind

  • To assist you with growing in self-value so that you can consistently work toward reaching your goals

  • To walk alongside you as you deepen the work of trusting yourself with yourself so that you can build the habit of showing up for yourself as you work to show up for others

  • To assist you in establishing a more genuine relationship with your health and wellness experience 

  • To put you in a community with other women on a similar journey so that you can stay inspired and have access to a sisterhood that holds you accountable (with love, of course)

  • To assist you with building your health, alongside your wealth, because you are not a martyr


My hope is that this retreat will bolster your success as you move closer to “snatching” that waistline, growing in self-confidence, and improving your mental health. You deserve to be the best version of yourself.


What if you found yourself in a space where you can…


  • Use the tools offered to help you rebuild trust in yourself regarding your health and wellness

  • Learn strategies to help you grow in self-value

  • Affirm your value, beauty, and power without apology

  • Take a solutions-based approach to the “bullsh*t” barriers you face on your wellness journey

  • Have a transformative health and wellness experience that will positively impact your life for months, if not years

  • Spend two and a half days with other powerhouse women who understand that their professional success is tied to their health and wellness goals

  • Lay a foundation that is intentional about building your health alongside your wealth

  • Engage your health and wellness journey in an authentic way, not a performance




The Covet VIRTUAL Retreat includes the following:

  • Covet Journal (valued at $32)
  • Covet Retreat curriculum (valued at $297)
  • Bad Girl Fit, Sequence 2 (valued at $97)
  • One yoga class (valued at $50)
  • One movement class (valued at $45)
  • Private Facebook group (valued at $97)
  • A virtual weekend with Dr. Sagashus Levingston (starting at $5,000)
  • Your transformative experience (priceless)

The value of this retreat is $5,618.


You pay $1,997!



With the exception of Bad Girl Fit (Sequence 2), everything in this package has been tested and reviewed for at least two years. The only remaining question is this: Are you ready? 
  • Are you ready to dedicate a weekend to your health and wellness?
  • Are you ready to do the work: reflect honestly, set goals boldly, strategize fearlessly, and reward yourself shamelessly?
  • Are you ready to make the financial investment—put dollars behind your transformative experience; make meaningful connections that will (hopefully) lead to quality support, accountability, and genuine friendships; and instructors, facilitators, and a team that identify as women and/or Black?
  • Are you ready to stop coveting other people’s beauty, power, and strength and start owning yours without apology? 
If you are wondering if the timing is right, here are three things to consider:
  • Due to Dr. Sagashus’ schedule, LIVE sessions of Covet is only offered three times this season (and possibly this year).
  • This retreat is an accelerated version of our twelve-week course (regular cost, $5,000). Attending the accelerated retreats comes with a savings that’s almost forty percent (40%) off.
  • If you are looking to reclaim your health and wellness by the summer, spring is a great time to begin.

The Covet virtual retreat includes a ten percent discount on any other course at Infamous Mothers led by Dr. Sagashus.
