A LIVE YOUR JOURNEY RETREAT

Welcome to Sicily

Join me this coming summer for a journey to wholeness in the southeastern region of Sicily, Italy – an area that’s known for it’s rich history, delicious food, and white sandy beaches . We’ll spend seven transformative days (June 27 – July 4, 2020) learning, mapping, and embodying the chakra system with the goal to create space, freedom, and internal alignment. When we’re not transforming in the yoga studio or lounging by the refreshing pool, we’ll be exploring the streets of Sicily – immersing ourselves in the vibrant culture, learning about the history, and let’s be honest – eating all the pizza and cannolis. This is a once in a lifetime trip that will leave a lasting imprint on your existence.

WHY THE CHAKRAS?

Template for Transformation

The chakra system provides an internal roadmap to experience body-mind-soul alignment. It can lead us towards liberation, freedom from fixation, inner wisdom, an expansive experience, and a connection to Spirit. 

Learn How to Balance Your Energy

The chakra system can reveal energetic misalignments and imbalances, helping us to understand our unique energy story and restore harmony through various practices, techniques, and tools. 

Spiritual Invitation

The chakra system provides a container to embody our energy and understand it’s divine qualities. It translates that which we cannot see into an experience, providing an invitation to step into the sacred.

MEET ALLIE!

Hi, I’m Allie! Your retreat guide, chakra teacher, and travel companion.

This will be my return home to Italy after living there for a six month period at the age of 24, and I am so honored to include you, our community, and the chakra system in this return home journey. Over a seven day period, I will guide you through the process of learning, mapping, and embodying the chakra liberation current and your unique energy system, while also sharing specific chakra practices that you can take home with you. You will leave the retreat with a deep appreciation for your potential, the friendships cultivated, and an inner knowing that you have the right to feel whole – body, mind, and soul

If you don’t know me, I am a once corporate marketing girl turned yoga teacher, small business owner, and now full-time traveler via a sailboat. I fell down the chakra rabbit hole some four years which led me to studying and training under Anodea Judith, whose work has greatly influenced my personal life and now serves as the bedrock of my teachings and most importantly – this retreat!
