Sister Moon Yoga Retreat


Join a circle of open-hearted yogini sisters practicing sacred women's yoga and thai massage. Nourish your body and spirit with four days in nature, organic food, fresh air, creative energy and deep sharing. Explore the meditative balance between connecting deeply with yourself, nurturing others and allowing yourself to be nurtured, all powerful elements of our feminine nature. 

In this retreat we will explore:

Lunar Yoga- a fluid dance-like women's practice, in the tantric hatha tradition, Kria, Asana, Mudra, Chanting and Meditation designed to free life force energy and open deeper levels of grace, intuition and self trust.

Yin Yoga- to rebalance hormones and deeply replenish your natural stores of energy. We will experience surrendering to mother earth and to root ourselves into the feminine wisdom of releasing and perceiving. Deep listening in stillness opens the gate to the inner voices of the body and soul. 

Thai Yoga Massage- learn simple thai yoga massage techniques to ease and support women health, hormonal balance, menstruation pain, fertility, pregnancy, and menopausal symptoms. Experience first hand the healing effects of this work as we learn and practice together and feel inspired to share your natural healing touch with others.

Sacred self care- Meditations, visualizations, dance, and self care practices for the female body, yoni and womb. Bring awareness to your own inner cycle of change. Understanding and honoring to the different stages of bleeding so we can reconnect with the power of the wild feminine. 

At the retreat you will have the chance to take Thai Massage Sessions during your free time. It will support you in the process to release tension and unneeded emotions through healing touch. Enjoy the support from a sister giving her energy and attention on your personal well-being and growth for 1,5 hours.
