In many cultures and traditions, the moon is a deeply feminine symbol, marking it’s passing phases with ceremonies and rituals to honor the connection between nature and ourselves. The moon offers a different kind of light to the sun, a light that can illuminate inner desires, strengths and knowledge. This Women’s Yoga Retreat will give space to stir the cauldron of your inner being, to nourish, and celebrate your uniqueness and beauty. Through yoga, meditation, laughter and creative reflection, we will liberate our innermost expression and joy.
