Shakti Rising –
a yoga retreat to reclaim sacred feminine wisdom
March 23-30, 2019
Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat, Costa Rica
AWAKEN YOUR JOY, RECLAIM YOUR RADIANCE, EMBODY YOUR SACRED POWER
This is an invitation to embark on a powerful journey of self discovery and growth, as we’ll decode and peel away the layers of conditioning which have kept our wisdom as women locked away. Together we’ll reclaim sacred feminine wisdom practices, so we may each flourish authentically as the unique, beautiful goddesses that we are.
Join Nancy Goodfellow and Chantal Russell for a seven day yoga retreat on the beach to create a personal practice which honours our place within the cycles of the earth, the moon and our own lives as women. We will uncover ways to reclaim what has for too long been taken from us and rise up with presence, power and purpose. Nourish your body, replenish your well, and remember who your are beyond the demands of everyday life. Recharge amidst the beauty of Costa Rica; soak up the sun and swim in the life giving waters of the warm Pacific Ocean.
Each day we’ll weave yoga, movement and meditation practices with elemental earth wisdom. The flow of the week will be inspired and informed by nature's four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air. Working with each one, we’ll explore its energy and qualities within and around us; honouring our lunar and own menstrual cycles. We will journey within and begin to release, redefine, and remember; coming home to our innate female intuition and cultivating a sacred sense of empowerment, self-love, trust, vitality and authenticity as women and sisters on this path.
THIS JOURNEY IS FOR YOU IF:
- You want to dive deeper into your true goddess nature
- You recognise the call of supportive sisterhood and coming together to share, grow, heal and be witnessed and heard in this
- You want to cultivate a more profound connection to nature, the earth and the natural rhythms that govern our daily lives
- You have somehow lost touch with your intuition, sense of power and self-belief
- You are stressed, exhausted or feel stuck - creatively, sexually, energetically, socially...
- You already have a spiritual practice but would like to deepen and expand it
- You are new to spirituality, meditation or any kind of inner work but feel a call to explore your inner sky
- You have lost touch with your unique female gifts or would like to learn new ways to fully embrace your sacred feminine essence
- You would like to learn how to honour and understand your menstrual cycle as the sacred and empowering gift that it is
