We look into yogic practices with a focus on the health and well-being of a woman's unique body, mind and spirit. Find new levels of acceptance of your ‘self’, soothe the body, let go of the mind and honour your needs.

During the weekend explore aspects of your femininity and the associated cycles, challenges, joys and transitions. Through yoga practice, relaxation, meditation, sacred sound, dance and ritual, see and experience your Maiden (creative force), your Mother (inner and outer nurturing force) and your Elder (innate Wise Woman).

Retreat programme includes:

- Daily yoga classes focused on women’s specific needs
- Meditations for expanding the heart
- Deep relaxation and massage techniques
- Discussion on the needs, joys and challenges for women in modern society
- Fire ceremonies, songs, creativity and more…

Swami Karma Karuna specializes in women’s health. By blending yogic lifestyle and Sannyasa tradition with motherhood, she brings a unique and practical approach, inspiring the integration of yogic principles into everyday activities.

Rita Scholten is a co-facilitator of women’s gatherings at the Tui Educational and Spiritual trust. Under Rita’s guidance, these women are nurtured, guided and inspired by a program of sharing circles, heart opening celebrations, self-connection tools and rituals.
