It's a home coming; all about remembering who you always were. I have organized dozens of yoga retreats through out the years and each one of my yoga retreat has its own theme, but we always do meditation, breath work, yoga, intuitive writing & somatic movement practices in my retreats. My background is in gender studies & sociology and now I study classical tantra (non dual shaivatantra). I'm also currently participating in integrative somatic trauma therapy certificate."
