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, this event focusing on the sacral chakra, aka swadhisthana 'one's own abode'. Become reacquainted with and joyous taking up residence in all parts of your being as we explore the sensuality and fluidity of water.
“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop."
An element revered for its life giving qualities, depth and power, water can be tranquil yet also tempestuous, clear or chaotic, serene or stormy, a mirror for our own exploration of the spectrum of human emotion. Building upon the container of a strong and balanced root chakra creates a container for the dance of the sacral chakra and element of water to expand, immersing us in an exploration of pleasure, sensuality and creativity.
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 each one 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 water element and swadhisthana chakra related snacks are encouraged (eg snacks high in water, juicy consistency, orange in colour)!
How much is the investment?
