Spiritual Body-Mind Retreats for Women
More and more women are seeking rejuvenation in body-mind retreats that cater to women’s interests. Yoga was originally an all-male activity. Today, 77% of American practitioners are women, according to the 2005 Yoga in America Survey from Yoga Journal. Women-only retreats focus on issues unique to women’s bodies and nurture the expression of female energy.
Examples include “Surf Goddess” retreats; women-only yoga, journaling and white-water river rafting; and “Celebrating the Goddess” yoga and meditation retreats. Other women’s health topics that are often featured in women-only programs include sexuality, creativity, aging gracefully and nutrition.
