with Tara and Yuli

Marshall, NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Bend of Ivy Lodge




Join Becky (Tara) Eschenroeder and Yuli Ama Luna for 4 days in paradise of surrendering to that blissful space of allowing life to beautifully blossom. Embraced by Mother Nature, nurtured by the Mountains, and held by Mother Earth, we will shed the unnecessary layers that we so insist on carrying with us on a daily basis that prevent us form the act of simply being. Prepare to take a journey to one of the most beautiful locations this country has to offer as we cultivate our own internal gardens and watch them grow.




This blissful experience of awakening will include:

Yoga (all levels!)


Shaktivating classes

Mindful hikes

Goddess photoshoots

Art making

Hot Springs Trip

....stay tuned for more surprises! 




Our bodies will be nourished with the most amazing food prepared by Chef Extraordinaire ♦Dava♦


We understand that retreat is an escape from a daily life full of structures and schedules and commitments... So, although we offer a full schedule of events and activities, we invite You to listen to Yourself and just *F*L*O*W* ♥

I believe we know all the Answers. We just allow ourselves to forget. When we remember to come back to our center and start loving and accepting ourselves, unconditionally, then we open the sacral vortex of the Universe and invite Her to breathe through us, and this is when the Magic happens ♥ My Shaktivating class is empowering workshop for women to recall and activate our infinite abilities through spiritual uplifting, sacred body movement and energy work. ♥
