 The Syllabus

LAKITA and Atira bring their unique flavor of the feminine sacred arts to this retreat, which will leave you inspired, radiant and connected to your feminine essence! Here is some detailed information about the style of Bellydance, yoga and Sacred Feminine Yoga which we bring to you in this unforgettable experience not to be missed.
Fusion Bellydance
    • Fusion/Contemporary Bellydance is an experimental, modern interpretation of the ancient art form that came through via a collective of women in the Bay Area, San Francisco, that has now spread globally and is maintaining its ever-evolving culture. The dance genre is rooted in Bellydance technique but fuses other styles of dance and influences. LAKITA is well-known for blending both modern and traditional stylisations of Bellydance whilst keeping connected to her roots as a contemporary dancer. She fuses this art form with contemporary music, movement, and fashion, bringing an unmistakable sensual, edgy, empowering experience to her classes, choreographies and performance. This retreat will include Bellydance Drills, Bellydance Choreography & Bellydance Performance.

Sacred Feminine Yoga
    • Sacred Feminine Yoga draws on both Tantric and Taoist practices, somatic psychology, women’s mysteries and sacred circle work to create a fusion which will awaken your feminine essence, and deepen your ability to drop into the sensual intelligence of your body.
    • This sacred practice is specifically designed for a woman’s body and is suitable for any age, stage of life, or level of yoga experience. It encourages a woman to be fully present with her feelings, allows the space for emotions to be expressed, releases stagnant energy in the body, and unlocks higher levels of intuition and instinctual wisdom. This allows a deepening into the sensual pleasure of a woman’s body.
Meditation & Yoga
    • Meditations in the morning will consist of a special blend of pranayama (breath practices) specifically for the womanly body and cycles, as well as feminine meditations from the Taoist and Tantric traditions.
    • Slow Flow Yoga classes in the mornings will be an all-rounded dynamic yoga style which is a blend of hatha yoga, somatics, movement meditation, tantric heart-oriented philosophy, and transpersonal psychology, which invites you into the deepest sense of self and embodiment.

“Lakita & Atira are so professional and relaxed in their approach, creating a super safe space which encourages full self-expression and artistic creative freedom.

The softening and the deepening into all the parts of myself that I experienced on their weeklong retreat was exquisite. The dance classes were so much fun and Lakita is such a powerful dancer reflecting so many feminine expressions that became available for us to embody. Atira’s yoga, meditation and sacred feminine yoga sessions were evocative and facilitated a deep dive into the emotion held in the physical body, allowing for release and letting go.

The sisterhood created a space for celebration, individuality, wisdom, adventure, intimacy and such beautiful deep and loving connections.

The food felt nourishing and abundant and the schedule was flowing and spacious. I would truly recommend this experience. It was such a lush treat!”
