Women’s Wisdom & Empowerment

Women are rising. Our Awakened Feminine is the medicine the world needs right now and each one of us in being called to step into our power. The path of the Divine Feminine has been honored and worshiped long before written religion and has its roots in the natural world. This retreat is designed to awaken and reconnect you to the primal sensual and creative power within in the safe environment of nature and among other women. Together we are stronger. Within each of us dwells this innate divine feminine power called Shakti. This power is available to each of us for and can supply us with all the energy we need, but first we need to cultivate an intimate relationship with Her and liberate Her from within. Join us as we embody the Goddess here on earth for both personal and global transformation. Come together for a week of womb wisdom, sacred booty shakin', soul love makin' irreverent empowerment and an unabashed loving community of lady loves in the sublime healing embrace of Ma nature. You will be inspired and return home ready to take on the world with practical and powerful tools to continue your inner and outer journey.

Prana Flow Yoga

Prana Flow is an energetic, creative, full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga cultivated by Shiva Rea and the Global Vinyasa Collective of Teachers. Students of all levels are empowered to experience prana - the universal source of breath, life-energy and conscious intelligence - as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living. Practitioners learn classical and innovative approaches to vinyasa yoga and the state of flow drawn from Krishnamacharya’s teachings, Tantra, Ayurveda, Bhakti, Somatics and Shiva’s teaching experience from the last fifteen years.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow, deep, passive and receptive practice that is profoundly therapeutic for the joints, tendons and ligaments as well as for the mind and heart. Based on the genius of Paul Grilley and sports science yin yoga provides clear theory as well as practical application. Above all each yin yoga session is a quiet space for practitioners to flow into deep levels of awareness peace and meditation.

Hiking ~ Sweat lodge ~ Nordic bath

During the afternoons, we will reconnect with nature, hiking in the surrounding Alps. One evening during the week, we will conduct the beautiful and magical ritual of the sweat lodge, healing and purifying through the Sacred fire. There will also be a free nordic bath on the last evening!
