Program

Rediscover a stronger, wiser version of you! On this retreat, you will practice Yin and Restorative yoga, different types of meditation, and rebalance with yoga Nidra. Reawaken your inner strength and knowledge through the nourishing practice of Yin yoga (a slow-paced meditative asana practice in which postures are held for a longer period of time).

Relax and renew while in Restorative poses. See a deeper version of yourself while resting in yoga Nidra (yogic sleep). Explore different types of meditation (chakra, mantra, one-pointed, walking, candlelight) and reclaim your goddess within.

You will also explore the ancient town of Rishikesh, visit sacred caves and temples, meet sadhus, be part of your own private yajna, and enjoy kirtan while being nourished with organic, vegetarian, yogic meals. In addition, you will journal your experiences and have open discussions of anything that has to do with life as a goddess on planet earth.
