• Swing Your Hips

    An intuitive dance retreat for women


Sisters, you’re invited to swing your hips to the beat of your intuitive power. Come explore your true nature.
 
This weekend retreat is an enchanting celebration of true connection between women. An chance to drop your role of partner, mother, daughter, professional, lover, caretaker, and simply be yourself.
 
We will dance, meditate, laugh, cry, honour and celebrate the fullness of our lives as women. We will enjoy a delightful and healing experience of light, deep connection, and joy.
 
We will feel liberated by expressing our essence through our dance, by being seen fully by our sisters who deeply resonate with us.

"Gathering a group of kindred spirits, a sacred container is created. Something magical happens: a dynamic energy opens up a channel to the collective of life.”
 
We will dance joy, ecstasy, sadness, anger. Fully embodying all emotions, every move becomes an intuitive expression of what is present right now. 
 
Dancing is like a washing machine for conscious and subconscious emotions. The dance floor offers a safe space for coming clean with the ebb and flow of life. By dancing regularly we avoid getting stuck in repetitive patterns and instead approach life with a fresh outlook.

We will explore an energising and joyful mix of yoga, meditation, ceremonies, art and of course creative movement and dance. 
 
There is no need to have dance experience - simply be ready to find and share our own unique rhythm.
 
Expressing our signature rhythm, we experience a deep sense of release and lightness. We’re full of energy, eager to celebrate life. 
 
We bring back to the world true listening without judgement. We reclaim an enchanted universe where we are in touch with the depths of our souls.
