Moving Through - Kea Retreat



Moving Through is an invitation to explore your depths through movement and self-inquiry. Let's delve into what's truly alive within you. Bring your persistent patterns or sudden revelations, and embark on a journey of movement, observation, and self-discovery.


Our sessions are carefully designed to create space for new insights, expanding your range of motion and flexibility in both body and mind through numerous yoga practices, intuitive movement offerings, meditations, constellation work, sound Nidra, stress pattern release, voice work, water journeys, etc. Within the safety of the group, playful creativity emerges, leading you to a space of no mind through experimentation and shared experiences.


In between active movement, find time for reflection, tuning in, and radical rest. Laugh, play, explore, and have fun while embracing the magic of the bay and farm.


Moving Through is a space of genuine care, where transparent communication, reflection, and open sharing of ideas flourish. It's both a group experience and a personal journey – come as you are. Holistic movement, rooted in the belief that imbalance leads to ill health, forms the heart of this retreat. Engage in practices like Yin Yoga, Dynamic Yoga, Authentic Movement, Breathwork, and more to rebalance your internal energies and patterns.


Regardless of your movement level, everyone is welcome to benefit from this retreat. Join us and reconnect with balance, spirituality, and creative power – step into the wisdom of your body and rediscover what truly moves you.
