4 Day - All Inclusive - Luxury - Shamanic Yoga Retreat in Joshua Tree, California

Magical Yoga Retreat USA

Greetings Star Seeker,

There are truly no coincidences in this world and I am a believer that people come into our lives as gifts from the Universe. I hold deep respect and admiration for you for your brave journey to get here. Perhaps we will share space in person as well. Whatever the Universe has planned for our paths, I look forward to seeing how it will all unfold.

The Shamanic Yoga Retreat - It's Written in the Stars - is an opportunity for deep healing, transformation, and connection to occur within oneself, with like-minded individuals, and with the Stars. Do you feel the calling? If so, please continue reading the information in this packet.

This retreat is not for everyone. The design of this retreat is specific to someone who is seeking to grow beyond limitations and transform their lives. Additionally, there are physical and energetic requirements for all attendees to make this a safe experience. Most importantly, you must feel the calling to attend both the Yoga practice and the Shamanic Journey Work in general. If this is not the right place, time, circle or experience for you, we honor that so deeply.

In addition to feeling the call deep within your body and soul, all attendees will be asked to bring a state of presence, gratitude, and grace. We understand and embrace the fact that the Yoga practices and Journey Work can be challenging. We want you to know that the circle of facilitators and assistants will hold the physical and energetic space for you throughout the entire retreat.

Over the course of four days and three nights, we will dive deep and soar high. We will heal, we will grow and we will expand our light. The Spirit of the Universe will be palpable far before you arrive and long after you leave. Every detail of the retreat is intricately placed to serve you on this journey that will last a lifetime.

If you know it's time for you to step into your power and transform your life, we should talk further. It will be our deepest honor and privilege to aid you in your journey as we honor and value the light that you will bring to retreat.

With infinite love and gratitude,

Athanasia - Your host
