Alive – an urban Sisterhood retreat

Embrace the lightness of being and the fulness of your radiant heart

This will be a transformative weekend! As a woman you have the power to birth new life, which is an amazing creative power within each of us. How can we become more aware of this innate creative power and feel more alive, radiant and connected?

As women we have been shamed and blamed for centuries, we were told that we are the weaker ones or that we are just too much. There’s a lot of confusion in a women’s mind, body and heart. But now is the time to break the chain of the past and become the most lively, beautiful, vital, creative, empowered and free version of ourselves. So we can live and create from our full potential

In this weekend you will nourish your body, heart and soul through movement, vocal expression, singing,  meditation, visualization and delicious food:

Movement – Bowspring workshops

 You will learn how you can feel more alive, radiant, focused and connected by bringing the natural curves back in our bodies through a new postural alignement called the Bowspring method.  You will become aware that the way you move, sit and do most things are unconscious habits that will keep you in a contracted state of being. You will experience how these unconscious movement patterns often will make you feel small, heavy and disconnected.

In this weekend you will learn a new way of moving. The Bowspring pose is open, dynamic and mindful. Because of  the opening effect of the bowspring poses you will feel more sensations and feelings in the body. Many times we do not want to feel our emotions and trauma’s. So these emotions and trauma’s are stored in the fascia and subconscious mind.  The Bowspring practice gives a new direction to the fascia therefor toxins and trauma’s are released from te fascia (over time).

Once you will feel more opening in your body it also might change the way how you feel about your body in a positive way. For me personally, I love being in my body since I’ve started practicing the Bowspring method. I feel more fluid, light and sensual. How can we learn again to perceive our bodies as innocent? And feel comfortable feeling sensual? These are theme’s we will adress during the weekend.

The bowspring classes and bodywork is a mindful practice for all levels.
