Exclusive private healing dance retreat for women

Reclaim your inner freedom and create beauty with who you are

How do you feel? And how do you want to feel?


This private transformative somatic dance/movement retreat offers you a chance to:

  • Clean up your inner world
  • Reconnect with your sensuous Wise Feminine Self
  • Discover which habits in perceiving, sensing, feeling, thinking, and moving are keeping you stuck in a state that doesn’t feel alive, present, and spirited.
  • Transform deep limiting beliefs and interfering patterns of the soul, emotions, and physical realm.
  • Heal emotional wounding and grief
  • Realign your soul and re-ignite that inner sparkle.

This 7-day/6-night individual somatic dance/movement retreat for women only is completely customized for you and tailored to your healing pace and needs. (This retreat doesn’t offer yoga)

With my gift to feel deep into your inner stream and read your body, I will guide you to make a deep, transforming journey inward to feel what is alive in you, and how it is moving you.

It will be a playful journey in which your emotional wounding will be given room to heal. A journey where the wisdom of your body teaches you how to make a different movement. A new move that comes from an embodied and compassionate connection with yourself. A ‘Yes move’ towards you, your body, and your soul.

You will leave with a blueprint for creating a beautiful life with who you are, and what you have powered by physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, increased pleasure, joy, health, and self-love.

I will guide you using the healing powers of movement, awareness, stillness, body-centered energetic healing, “creative dance processes’, and the beautiful nature that we are in.

Please contact me prior to booking to get to know each other and to feel whether we are a fit for your journey.

Caring and loving retreat

I needed a retreat because of mental load due to divorce, stress and recovering from a hard disease. I chose this offering to reconnect to myself, and healing. After the retreat I feel more inner peace and wisdom. The food was super delicious and nutritious.

Create beauty with who you are and what you have by cleaning up your inner world, removing the hidden sabotaging patterns, and by wholeheartedly welcoming yourself

I will help you to become aware of the dynamics of deep sabotaging beliefs, and vows. How these have formed a self-image that is inconsistent with who you really are and affects your perception of the world, and how you respond. 

How do you feel?

The channels through which we experience: sensing, feeling, intuition, thinking, moving, and imagining, are all inextricably linked. How we feel affects how we think and act. How we perceive the world affects how we feel. They are the driving force behind the way you behave and move, and how you feel when you let them have their way.

Awareness, being present in your body and with your senses and sensations, and connecting and moving with your playful mind are the keys to transforming patterns of perception and start the process of healing.

Healing can be very joyful. You don’t have to go to the bottom of the well to find release. Our body and nervous system have a built-in and self-regulating self-healing program that only needs to be activated.

The creative dance processes and somatic movement practices will take you into this self-healing zone. The hands-on somatic energetic sessions will help you release emotional blocks, anxiety, and imbalance. It will deeply balance and nurture your nervous system, and all body systems as well as guide you to transform movement patterns and habits that limit you from being yourself and block your energy flow, mobility, ease, release, vitality, and sense of security and well-being.

Me is real Me I was just a bypasser of my own life. I needed to start to feel and be me again.  I chose this offering as it was a 1:1 retreat with the word 'freedom' in a description of what I wanted, and it didn't matter that it involved dancing. The resistance in...

My retreat at Jardin de Luz was magical. At first, you see this land, surrounded by mountains and full of olive and fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, and sweet animals. Everything is there to help you feel supported and encourage openness. And then there’s Pingel and...
