Confident creative you: yoga and art retreat for women

Breathing in the fresh morning mountain air, your mind is alive with insights from last night’s opening circle. You head to your first group yoga session with Anjali Rose, excited to get your energy flowing!

After a nutritious, locally grown breakfast you can’t wait to begin Larissa’s Soul Path session to get you aligned with your heart’s desire and begin your chakra manifesting painting. Even though you don’t think of yourself as any kind of artist, you are blown away by how free and uplifted you feel expressing yourself creatively, and the amazing insights you discovered.

What an awesome morning! Ready to relax and soak in all you have already learned, you find a comfy spot to eat lunch on the porch and catch up with two women who totally get what you are experiencing in your life and give you the ideas and support to help you reach for your dreams.

After chatting for what feels like hours, you are excited to get back to painting and the amazing insights and energy flow it creates. Then a late afternoon walk on the many trails of this 250 acre retreat center are the perfect way to integrate all the gifts you received today before heading back to the big house to gather around the table with this tribe of wise women.

After nourishing yourself with an awesome meal you get changed and ready for the circle gathering and burning ritual to settle down for the night.

Meet your chakras

Over the course of the weekend you will learn about your body’s powerful energetic system, the chakras, and how it can help you manifest your dreams. The Saturday morning yoga flow will align the energy in your body, connecting you to the power and wisdom of each chakra.

New to the chakras? You will learn about what area of your life and self-expression each chakra connects with, and how to identify which chakras may be blocked.

Confident creative you: yoga and art retreat for women

What is Soul Path Art?

Soul Path Art is a unique combination of group work, creativity warm ups, intuitive creativity exercises, and intentional painting to quiet your mind, connect you to your heart’s desire, and bring your intentions into being. Coupled with the chakras, you are in for a powerful manifesting experience that will up your confidence and boost your creative expression!

You may not believe you are creative, but nothing could be further from the truth. At your core, you are creative. How do I know this? Because every kid is creative, and you were once a kid! As you get older you tend to forget your innate creativity, but it creeps into your life in the choices you make every day. What you are wearing, what you are eating, these are all examples of using your creativity.

But life has a way of eroding your connection to creativity, enticing you to focus on day-to-day worries and challenges that gradually take over your thoughts, feelings, and time. At CONFIDENT CREATIVE YOU you will reconnect to the creative woman you are, get clear about the desire of your heart, gain confidence expressing your thoughts and feelings, and to learn to use creativity to manifest positive changes in your life. Not to mention letting go of old patterns, reigniting your inner light, and restoring well-being in your mind, body, and soul!

What is Chakra Yoga?

We are energetic beings and chakra yoga takes us through mindful movement with a focus on our energetic “wheels” or chakras as a basis for our yoga practice striving toward inner peace, using different postures to achieve a blissful and worry-free state. Each chakra represents a feeling or an energetic way of being in our mind, body and soul and when our chakras are aligned, all is well in our physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Chakra yoga aims at integrating every aspect of your body, mind and spirit by providing you with the grounding to work in the world. If we are feeling stuck, moving the energy of the chakras can give you a greater sense of liberation and freedom in your life. Everyone can access chakra yoga, no experience is necessary and mindful movement is our inner and outer expression of health and wellbeing. These subtle energy bodies are purely energetic in nature and are intimately linked and anchored to different points in our physical body. The chakras filter all the events of your daily life, as well as your dreams, fears, hopes, desires, regrets, thoughts and communication.

In chakra yoga, we will create movement to shake up the energy, practice pranayama breathing techniques to infuse energy and release any blockages, and align our movements to stimulate healing and balance in each chakra.  As women we are the relationship builder, the gatherer, the voice, the nurturer and to align and sustain these elements of ourselves, each chakra needs to be open and flowing.Remember, the delight of your first love, your first spiritual experience, the divine connection to family and friends, the deep sense of sensuality and expressions of creativity, a sense of empowerment and being fearless.  You are a courageous woman who is confident and creative, and this expression of self-exploration can manifest through feelings deeply held within the chakras. Be confident and courageous, it’s who you are!

Restorative and Yin Yoga

These well known yoga practices will bring a sense of grounding and restoration to the body, mind and soul. Allow the body to rest, the spirit to soar and the mind to release as the collective energy soothes and deeply relaxes from the inside out. We explore these practices as ways to begin and end the day cultivating a feeling of sacred space and self-care.

Larissa Davis is a Soul Path Artist, Certified Creatively Fit Coach, Motivational Speaker, and Workshop and Retreat Leader helping you build your intuition, get clear about what you want, and gain the confidence to express yourself freely and creatively so you can live the life that lights you up.

When two big life changes pushed her to find the true purpose of her life, Larissa embarked on a journey of self-discovery. After a dream showed her she could use painting to heal herself and predict the future, Larissa started creating and immediately noticed the power of creativity to still the thoughts in her mind. Larissa created Soul Path Art, an intentional, intuitive practice that uses the power of creativity to build intuition, clarify intentions, and find their authentic voice.

Soul Path Art increases self-confidence and heals self-doubt, empowering women of all experience levels to express themselves authentically, freely, and creatively. Private Soul Path Coaching sessions available during the "create-your-own-retreat" time.

Yoga Teacher and Certified Reiki Master Teacher, Oracle Card Reader, Intuitive Guide, and Workshop and Retreat Leader guiding women to discover their inner essence of bliss, connect to their wise woman and embrace their bodies intuitively and expansively to live a heartfelt life from the wisdom within.

Being a seeker and on a path of self-discovery to uncover her innate wisdom, Anjali began a journey of self-healing and was introduced to both Reiki and Yoga. She became a true believer when reiki healed her thyroid and she became intuitively guided to pursue yoga and meditation to calm her body, mind and soul. She discovered her spiritual calling to guide others through mindful movement and intentional healing with mystical and intuitive guidance as a self-practice first then a sharing with other women on similar paths of healing.
