" Get Your Groove Back" Retreat for Women
Unleash your inner Goddess! This rare and beautiful retreat is meant for women of all ages who are determined to live their lives fully. In a sacred and safe environment, we will explore physiological and psychological aspects of what it truly means to be a woman, addressing the issues of sexuality and sensuality, pelvic and core health, past traumas, connection and intimacy, body-image, and the myriad of ways we talk to and treat ourselves - good or bad. We will dive deep into learning about our own anatomy and physiology, but also about subtle body consisting of chakras, archetypes, attitudes, and believes. You will emerge as a radiant, beautiful, and powerful Goddess who is fully connected and present – physically, sexually, mentally, and emotionally. Everything is possible for a Goddess like you!

Maria is passionate about carefully crafting and holding a safe space for women, so that each of them would feel empowered to reveal her own inner Goddess.
