About the Event
Forgotten who you are beyond the labels of the everyday and constraints of everyday routine? Re-connect with the very essence of your being on this series of day retreats designed to hold and to nurture your wild essence, helping you remember your raw, untamed nature.
Each day is themed around an element and energetic centre, the third day retreat in this series focusing on the solar plexus - manipura chakra, 'city of jewels'.
“A candle can only illuminate its world by allowing itself to be set on fire.” ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Concerning self esteem and confidence, manipura chakra is connected with the element of fire ~ igniting our joie de vivre and lust for life, passion, a life in rich multi colour not monochrome. Connected also with a fierce warrioress energy, a balanced solar has us boundaried and thriving, standing in our power and daring to be seen. Let's channel the power of fire as we step into a new chapter, burning away the old and lighting the new path ahead.
Who is this for?
If you’re tired of the drudgery of the everyday and want to reignite the spark in your eye, and lust for life this is for you. Reconnect with yourself and with a powerful support network of like minded sisters as we embrace all parts of being and go beyond the conditioning of the everyday.

Can I attend any/all of the Wild Women day retreats?
Yes, you don’t need to attend the previous retreats in order to benefit from them. Although there is a natural progression and development of the themes/content as each day progresses further along the chakra system, each retreat is designed to be an experience in it’s own right. Expect an extra potent process however if you can commit to all in order!
Do I need yoga experience?
No, the yoga session will be accessible wherever you’re at on your yoga journey.
Do I need (belly)dance experience/ a special outfit etc?
No! Awakened belly dance is also not what you expect, far removed from typical styles of bellydance and instead focused on the energetic experience of embodying each energy centre or chakra. It is not focused on technique, performance or aesthetic, and is a powerful and cathartic process which takes you on a transformative journey. You don’t need to wear a money skirt etc, wear whatever makes you feel alive that you can move comfortably in. Layers are recommended so you can easily adjust with fluctuations in body temp.
Do I need a certain level of fitness?
A general level of fitness will be helpful though not strictly necessary. The yoga session will be gentle to moderate in terms of physical exertion. The dance session can be moderate to intense in terms of movement, but breaks are always available as is sitting instead of standing if required due to injury etc.
Who is this not suitable for?
Those under 16, those not identifying as women & pregnant folk.
What should I bring/wear?
Yoga mats, props, blanket and cushion will be provided, as will a vegetarian lunch and snacks. Please bring a water bottle, mug/thermos for tea and a notepad & pen. Wear comfortable clothes to move in that allow you to feel sensual and free. Vegetarian food will be provided for our final feast (please let me know if you have any allergies I need to be aware of) but please feel free to bring snacks to share. As this day is exploring the energy of the fire element and manipura chakra related snacks are encouraged (eg ones that stoke the digestive fire, are spicy or yellow in colour)!
