Embrace the Wild Woman

Join us for this life changing week in the French Alps

Give yourself the gift of connecting with nature, your true authentic self, and other women on a similar journey who heard the call of the mountains.

This week will nourish your creativity with art projects,  open your voice and heart with sacred sound and rituals, and explore the freedom that yoga can teach to release from inner suffering.

This retreat is in English, and anyone with an intermediate level of English is welcome.

Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is for you if….

  • You interested in yoga. Any and all levels and skillsets are welcome!
  • You have a deep desire to connect with nature. Does the idea of forest bathing, lying in a hamac gazing at mountain peaks, or swimming in a cool lake bring a smile to your face? If so, this will light up your soul.
  • You crave a deeper connection and rejuvenation with your true inner self.
  • You want to play and explore your creativity in community with other like minded women.
