An Invitation to FLOW.. 

“Embody your own harmonic flow”

We invite you to us on a week journey of flow, to clear heal and activate your inner FLOW with a group of inspiring women in a luxury location in beautiful Zanzibar surrounded by mystical ambiance. Join us for a week in movement, breath and sound and allow yourself to let go, relax and experience a new adventure into your inner FLOW

An Invitation to Flow 

Women are the creators of life. We create, nurture, expand and celebrate life in our homes, our work, our relationships, our community and wherever we go! That’s our natural FLOW. However, this divine gift bears great responsibilities and endless expectations, some we imposed upon ourselves, and others are bestowed upon us by the world around us, leading us most time to disconnect from our bodies, who we truly are, and feminine energies, that lead us to live in a state of stress, anxiety, chase, and sometimes feeling lost.

To each their unique narrative, and for change to happen, it is necessary to take time for ourselves to intentionally disconnect from the outer world and its nuance, and connect to our natural feminine FLOW. That brings inner stability, confidence and imprint flow to life. 

We invite you to FLOW, a six-day journey to identify and unblock your unique flow and experience a deeper connection with your inner wisdom and stillness in the breathtaking island of Zanzibar, where nature is constantly reminding you to take a moment to remember what truly matters. FLOW allows you to center yourself, while enjoying the pearly sandy beach and tranquil waters, and lush green, and most importantly experience the generosity and hospitality of the Zanzibari folks. We will conclude our journey with a Garden Fire Ceremony, a first of its kind where we will have the traditional Garden Cress drink along with sacred chanting, sound healing and experience sisterhood sharing and reflections.

The retreat is intentionally designed to be an intimate and safe space for women to take a moment to rest and reset. Everything from the location, to the experiences, to the partners we work with are carefully curated to allow you to fully immerse yourself with the flow journey and the island. The FLOW Journey is divided into three stages to take you through an authentic journey to find your inner flow.

[Day 5 - 6]

A glimpse of a FLOW Day 

 Every morning we will flow with Hatha Yoga to open up our bodies, activate our meridians, loosen up our tight fascia, learn how to listen and connect to our bodies with mindful Asanas.

 We will then breathe prana, life force to the new openings we created through movement. We will then channel this prana and focus it with our intention through morning meditations.

 The day will also include a daily spiritual discourse that will help us identify aspects of the false self, and weave our own way back into self-remembrance.

 We will then move into the theme of the day combined by chosen activity from a collection of excursions and bespoke experiences to savor the hospitality, heritage, and beauty of Zanzibar.

 The day will end with an optional Yin Yoga practice which will help us find our resting flow at the end of the day.

What is not included … 

 Extra excursions

 Spa treatments

 Private transportation

 Stay at Habitas resort

 Extra nights stay at the hotel
