Earth Woman
Naked Yoga and Meditation Retreat

"Each time women gather in circles together, the world heals a little bit more."

August 15 – August 19, 2024

The Course

Welcome to our retreat, a sanctuary where women are invited to embrace their true selves without inhibition. Nestled amidst the tranquil beauty of the Spanish countryside, imagine a space free from judgment, where the essence of femininity is celebrated through yoga, meditation, and connection with nature. Here, we foster a culture of acceptance, nourishing both body and soul with wholesome food, supportive sisterhood, and empowering practices. It's important to note that our retreat is dedicated solely to non-sexual practices, ensuring a safe and respectful environment for all. Join us in rediscovering the joy of simply being, surrounded by the healing power of nature and the warmth of community.

Naked: return to our natural state

The word 'nudity' is likely to provoke intensive feelings in us. These may include fear, a sense of freedom, shyness, sexual arousal or disgust, or many more. We were born naked and will leave this earth again naked. Daring to be naked is to dare to be vulnerable and let go of conditionings and limiting beliefs. This retreat can be an opportunity to facilitate this process. And once we go beyond all of this, we can experience a very natural feeling of being free, innocent and connected with nature, ourselves and each other. It is this original state of being that we like to reawaken and through which we can celebrate life. You are welcome in this safe space of freedom. 

As this experience is about letting go and freedom, we will never force anyone to be naked. It is simply a space in which it is encouraged and welcome to be who you are in body, personality and spirit.
