Goa, India

Answer your body’s call to MOVE!

A healing 7 days of shaking, dance, yoga, connected breathwork and stillness that will help you to release tension, find new freedom and revitalise your body, mind and soul.

This retreat has been created for you...everybody with a body is welcome.  No shaking or dancing skill/experience is necessary – you will be guided to remember how your body naturally wants to move, to express and to let go.


Have you noticed how your hands sometimes shake when you have experienced a shock?  Shaking is your body’s natural mechanism for discharging your nervous system’s response to trauma, and helps to release any tension from your body (and mind). 

A regular shaking practice offers you:

  • Stress / tension / trauma release

  • Revitalised energy levels

  • Increased levels of relaxation

  • Enhanced health and wellbeing

  • Newfound freedom in your body, thoughts and all aspects of your life

  • Liberation from negative patterns; expectations; judgements and other limiting behaviours

  • Elimination of suppressed emotions

  • Reconnection with your inner child

  • Physical embodiment



  • Explore heightened ecstatic states through shaking, dancing and movement

  • Dive deep into stillness with daily meditations, yin yoga and/or Yoga Nidra

  • Nourish our bodies with healthy, wholesome, organic food and daily fresh coconuts

  • Plenty of free time to relax on the beach, explore the local area, shop at the markets and connect with the elements in nature

“When we shake ourselves to the fullest height of ecstatic expression and then fall into the deepest state of quiet,

we set the stage for powerful realignment and evolution of our whole being.” 

- ‘Shaking Medicine’ by Dr. Bradford Keeney
