The Goddess Retreat
July 2-9, 2022

Invoke your inner Goddess

Step out of the ordinary. 

Release constraints and return to a sense of unbounded joy and freedom.

Join Alesha, Amanda & Indri for a 7 night 8 day journey of remembrance.

Step out of your daily routine, and step onto the deck of a sailboat.

Feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin and

take a deep breath to soak it all in.

 

We gather in a sisterhood of GODDESSES: 

Explore the alchemy of ancient wisdom to weave into our modern lives.

Nourish your soul with yoga, breathwork, contemplation, & journaling.

Open your heart in ceremony, ritual, and celebration.

Surrender to spaciousness.

Transform.

Immerse yourself in the Elements

We will be a very small group of sisters- max 8 of us, including your hosts!

Together, we will practice, explore,  release, and offer ourselves an opportunity to expand into our next phase of personal development.  There will be much space for personal reflection as well as alone time, as needed. Likewise an opportunity for the community. I fully believe that when women support women, magic unfolds.

This journey will take place throughout the Isles of Greece. We will sail these gorgeous islands in a 42ft Catamaran. We will explore the islands and have our practices in unique locations. When off the mat we can hike, explore snorkel, paddleboard, dive deep into the culture, and take time to simply relax on the beaches and sailboat.  

 

Best part…No sailing (or yoga) knowledge needed. Experienced staff take care of all the sailing and even our on-board meals.  All you have to do is show up, and be pampered like the Goddess you are!

Boat Life

Awaken a sense of freedom, exploration, and wonder.

It's a special sort of excitement and serenity that comes with being powered by nature.

Sit back and let the wind

take you away!

The Destination

Greek Isles

Rugged, sun-drenched outcrops of rock, anchored in stunning azure seas and sprinkled with snow-white villages and blue-domed churches. Ancient archaeological sites and countless postcard-worthy beaches, this is Greece. Throw in a blossoming food scene, renowned party destinations, and a good dose of sophistication, and you really do have the best of Greece’s captivating charms.

Yoga & Breathwork Practice

Prior to your trip, we will send you a form, during which you will be invited to inform us about your dietary habits so we can ensure that all your meals during the journey are aligned.
