Shakti Rising

A Yoga REtreat to awaken the wild & wise woman within


















Embody sacred power, ancient wisdom and unconditional love.

We each have within us a power; a sacred, creative, feminine force known as Shakti, that wants to flow free. This divine power is sometimes dormant, but never absent. Once activated, Shakti always, instinctively rises. Join Nancy Goodfellow and Chantal Russell for a seven day yoga retreat on the beach to celebrate this time of Shakti rising. Reconnect with the Great Mother, the rhythm of the earth and your own natural rhythms. Nourish your body, fill up your well, and set your soul’s voice free. Recharge amidst the beauty of Costa Rica; soak up the sun and float in the sea. 

Each day we’ll weave yoga, movement and meditation practices with elemental and priestess wisdom. Learn how nature can be a practical guide into radiant wellbeing. Enjoy lovingly prepared, locally-sourced organic meals, and the company of like minded empowered women. Deepen your yoga practice and cultivate simple daily ritual to awaken to the magic of each moment. This retreat is designed for the modern day woman who senses the mystery and beauty of life. It is for the mama, the ladyboss, the yogini within you; the practical mystic who seeks to attune to the lunar rhythms and to live in communion with nature. It is an invitation and a call for all women to listen to their intuition, tell their truth, and lead from their intelligent, intuitive heart. Each of us is part of a divine sisterhood who by coming together and healing ourselves, will bring about a much-needed shift on the planet. This is the time of awakening Shakti; the return of the mother and the rise of the sacred feminine.
