Program

Yoga and somatic movement are both amazing modalities that, separately and together, can offer an array of benefits. They deepen your internal awareness and sensitive engagement with the body, which can be an enlightening and transformational experience on many levels.

From this place, you can experience more "embodied awareness", a listening to the body, and how it ideally wishes to move, be heard, and express itself. This promotes holistic well-being of the body and mind, developing creativity and self-care, finding new ways to relax and regain balance, becoming at one with the self and the natural environment, and becoming physically and mentally ‘fitter’.

This retreat will allow you time and space to immerse in the nurture and self-care of these healing modalities, be supported by nourishing whole food, and by the coming together of a conscious group of people for the holistic well-being of the mind, body, and soul.

This retreat includes:

  • 1 full day of yoga and somatic workshop on Saturday
  • A cacao ceremony with music, yoga, and movement on Sunday
  • 1 Yoga Nidra sound bath on Sunday

Recipes are mainly vegan, plant-based, and always refined sugar-free.
