"creativity feeds your soul, it's a way to understand  and create changes in our lives, to make peace with ourselves and to love life."



Hello, I'm Alison, and it's a dream come true to run these women's retreats.


I studied Graphic Design and Fine Art in South Africa and Transpersonal Art Therapy in Australia. I also delved into Kahuna, Lomi Lomi Massage, and Reiki in Australia. My passion lies in encouraging self-love and connecting with what truly matters in life! For me, it's all about connection—connecting with yourself, with others, with nature, and with what truly matters. We can do this with Creativity!! My heartfelt wish is for every woman to leave these retreats with a deep sense of connection and love for themselves. Take home that amazing, creative being you are!


As an artist, art therapist, and a woman who embraces vulnerability, just like you, I'm here to support you in exploring and expressing yourself authentically. I believe that art is a reflection of our true selves, and when we embrace self-confidence and infuse joy into the process, our creativity naturally shines through.


Painting in my studio in France brings me immense joy, and I've been privileged to exhibit my work around the world. Like I have said I genuinely feel that creativity has the power to heal us, inspire us, and fill us with happiness and love. Painting is my meditation; it feeds my soul and brings me joy. I hope it does the same for you, and you go home with your heart full of joy too! Nothing beats the thrill of watching women embrace their creativity and truly come alive. My heartfelt wish is for every woman to leave these retreats with a deep sense of connection and love for themselves. 


"I am very blessed to work with unbelievably wonderful ladies,

who radiate so much amazing energy and love in the retreats."

Emily coulthurst Massage therapist Womens Art Retreats



I grew up in Australia however I am currently based in Berlin. I am trained in Hawaiian massage and have my own practice in Berlin. I also offer couple massage workshops and reiki energy healing. I am very passionate about energy work and bodywork which led me to becoming a Tantra facilitator this year. Tantra is a way of living from the heart, and listening to your body. It is also about finding a balance between your masculine and feminine energies and bringing the unconscious mind conscious. Through Tantric embodiment exercises a person will be able to shift energy bringing their body into harmony. I believe everyone can heal themselves - it must start by tuning into your body.

At the retreat I will hold space for a few different embodiment practices that will help everyone to move any stuck energy, allowing more room for self-love and feeling more alive in their beautiful body temple!

Womens Art Retreats Michelle yoga teacher Womens Art Retreats



Yoga Teacher Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga classes. All lessons are adapted to your needs and level.

I was born in Mexico and lived there for 20 years before moving to Montreal and finally settling in France 4 years ago. After being a semi-professional classical dancer, yoga came into my life about ten years ago.After years of practice, I decided to make it my professional activity and so I took a 200-hour training course in order to be able to teach. Since then, I am also a specialist in Ayurvedic medicine and certified Reiki I, II and III master.

Today yoga, meditation and mindfulness have changed my outlook on life. I learned to let go, to listen to my body and my intuition and enjoy the present moment. I look forward to meeting you all on the retreat.

Womens Art Retreats Iva massage therapist



Iva brings a wonderful bubbly loving energy on the retreat.

Hawaiian temple massage is derived from ancient Polynesian methods of restoring balance and promoting health and vitality. It is unlike any other bodywork as it goes beyond improving physical health, a Ka Huna bodyworker can guide their client to developing mental clarity, self-awareness, happiness, and love by employing the seven principles of the Hawaiian philosophy. The principle of aloha is one of the special significance in the realms of kahuna massage. The rhythmic "hula" style movements of the practitioner as they "dance" around the table are also meant to create a harmony between the practitioner and the client.

Womens Art Retreats Rebecca massage therapist



Rebekka adds her personalised style as she intuitively caters for what your body needs; anything from strong and intense pressure to calm and nurturing movements. She gives a deeply nurturing and relaxing massage. With its gentle flowing sequences, it is an excellent and beautiful way to relax and cleanse the body and mind, open up the heart and soothe the soul. But, it is so much more than just a massage or technique. It is a sacred healing deeply rooted in Hawaiian tradition.

It is a healing modality of love (aloha), meditation and prayer, where the giver is merely an instrument, a ‘flute’, through which life force or ‘mana’ can flow to the recipient. The work must come from the heart and flow through the hands, resulting in a healing beyond the mind.....Rebekka has a wonderful calming energy on the retreat.
