The Embodied Goddess Retreat
Sept 9-16, 2023
Invoke & Embody your Inner Goddess
Claim your Goddess-ence
Release constraints and return to a sense of unbounded joy and freedom.
Join Alesha, Indri & Emeli 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 to honor our GODDESS(ense):
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.
Immerse yourself in the Elements
We will be a very small group of sisters...
Together, we will practice, explore, release, and offer yourself an opportunity to expand into your 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 to let the magic unfold.
This journey will take place throughout the Isles of Greece. We will sail these gorgeous islands in a 45ft 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 takes care of all the sailing and our beautiful chef cooks our on-board meals with love and intention. All you have to do is show up, and be pampered like the Goddess you are!
Each day we will
explore a new location.
Practice yoga & breathwork in a variety of breathtaking destinations.
To invoke our inner goddess we explore the Mythology & Archetype.
Join in Rituals of self-care coupled with Ceremony & Celebration
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!
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.
