All Level ✺ 15-21 January 2023 ✺ La Viñuela, Andalusia, Spain
Every day, we walk in the depths of a deeply masculine world, but endless possibilities are waiting for us when we step into the sacred circle of sisterhood.
In this women-only retreat, we will learn from, connect with, and co-create alongside one another. We will explore many avenues of self-expression through daily yoga and meditation, as well as movement, breath, journaling, and embodiment practices. We will tap a toe into the magic of living alongside our natural, feminine rhythm, and we will support one another as equals as we move into our shadows to shine new light on the beauty that is flowing within us all.
Throughout our retreat, we will form a circle of sisterhood where we can hold space for one another and breathe in the healing of our shared experiences. Through the enchantment of self-expression, we will find a deeper connection to ourselves and to one another, leaving our week together to return home with a more profound understanding of the magic pulsing within all of us.
An important note: This retreat is open to all bodies walking in the expression of femininity. If you identify in another way and still wish to attend, we are so open to hearing from you and we can either discuss whether this event will support you, or we can direct you towards other practitioners who hold the best possible space for you.
Hello beautiful humans! I’m Lauren and I’ve been a yoga teacher for five years, a facilitator for twenty, and a lover of all-female spaces my entire life. I believe there is magic when women come together and share their experiences. There is a sacred divinity that lives in each of us just waiting to be brought to the surface, and sometimes, a room filled with other voices calling out, “Yes, sister!” is exactly what we need to leave feeling a deeper sense of love and devotion to all of the magic that lives inside of us.
Lauren moved to Portugal from the U.S. in 2016 and that’s where her passion for yoga grew from a hobby, to a habit, to a passion. She first began teaching aerial yoga and then expanded her training to include vinyasa, hatha, yin, and myofascial release when she realised how much joy her students brought her. With these experiences, she found herself immersed more and more in all-female spaces, and in them, she found the healing, love, and support she had been craving all her life. These experiences inspired her to take additional training in creating sacred spaces for women so she could share the magic she found within them.

We love the meditating effect working with clay has! Just like in yoga there is no pressure, you can enjoy the process. If you have experience already or not – it is always nice to join the workshop. Maybe it is going to be a new inspiration you take home with you and find a ceramics course back home?!
During this workshop you will learn how to hand-build either a cup or a mug (or whatever you like) with a technique called Neriage, in which colored clays are used to create a unique marble effect on each piece.
This workshop is suitable for everyone, as no prior experience is necessary.
All materials are included, and you will be able to take your piece home.
If you want to explore your creativity through your hands this is a great opportunity!
