Yoga, Meditation & Movement

We aim to teach a feminine yoga practice where you can move freely and reconnect to your feminine flow. Naturally women love to move their bodies in slow, fluid, sensual and mystical ways reflecting their physical curves and cyclical nature. But much of the yoga and movement practiced these days is angular, directional and lineal reflecting the mascluien energy. In our Wild women’s retreat we take you on a  journey of movement that promotes softening to the feminine. 

There will also be plenty of dancing, chanting and learning how you can adjust your practice to your menstrual cycle. During the week there will also be a full or waning moon ceremony which will ignite the wild female fire within. There will also be plenty of time for resting, reading, journaling and time to focus on your own journey of self-love and growth.

Self love, Sensuality & Cyclical Wisdom

We will dive into nurturing activities and rituals cultivating self love, sensuality, creativity and body acceptance.

Menstrual Cycle Workshops

Our Menstrual cycle workshops cultivate a relationship of respect, nurture and connection with your bodies and cycles. Each day of the menstrual cycle, we experience subtle changes hormonally, emotionally, and energetically. When we start to acknowledge and understand these shifts we respect the truth of our bodies and learn to work with our rhythms, rather than against them.

Sensuality & body acceptance

We live in a world with a lot of shame around the topic of women’s sexuality, body image and yoni health. Dr Vesna Lemm will hold various talks where she will share her knowledge she has gained from her 30 years experience as a midwife and doctor specialising in female health. writing workshop exploring the topics of body acceptance, body blockages and shame.

Connecting to mother nature

Immerse yourself and explore Montenegro by foot with many walking trails on turquoise coastal beaches, lush hills and valleys, or go for a swim in the clearest turquoise waters of the Adriatic sea. We included these two guided adventures: 

A private boat tour exploring Montenegro’s coastline and visit a tiny uninhabited island topped with a historic church, see coastal caves you can swim in, and stop off at a beach that can only be reached by boat.

Mystery mountain walk exploring a stream in fairytale like forrest. An adventure for all the senses.
