Alchemy:  a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

DSC_1488When we align ourselves with the moon and it’s mystical cycles, we can’t help but create magic within ourselves and in our life.  When you commit to transformation, there’s really nowhere to go but spiraling up.

That is what you will get when you attend a Lunar Alchemy Retreat with Dana Damara.

She unites all her passions: yoga, music, Reiki, Astrology, Tarot card readings, sound healing, Goddess and Shakti practices, Astral Energy exploration, travel, and connection with other amazing practitioners, to deliver a unique experience.

We explore the world and keep our destinations to those spaces that offer the highest and most potent energy vortices on the planet.  Why?  Because when we align with Mother Earth, we align with all that is.  Each venue offers space to create, connect, and visualize your life as it was meant to be lived.

Additionally, we offer yoga, dance, meditation, connection with nature, healthy food, and offerings from like-minded individuals on the same path as you.

DSC_1243And finally, each of Dana’s retreats include hours toward her 300-Hour or 500-Hour Embody Truth Teacher Training programs.  Keep track of your hours and training, and you could be looking at an epic retreat, unbeatable connection, realignment with source and hours toward your yoga teacher training certificate.

In addition to our LUNAR ALCHEMY RETREATS, Dana will be offering SOUL CAMPS for GIRLS ELEVATE participants.  She will also be consciously collaborating with like minded individuals to offer SHAKTI RENEWAL WEEKENDS in 2016.

Friday night we will host a welcome dinner and then dive into the New Moon energy first thing Saturday morning with a powerful yoga session. That evening we will circle up and celebrate the Shakti within all of us for a powerful, special edition of our “Shakti Circles” normally held in Marin County, CA.

Why the Full Moon?

Because when we align ourselves with the moon and it’s mystical cycles, we can’t help but create magic within ourselves and in our life. I’m thinking Tulum will be a great place to manifest all of this.

During this retreat you will have the opportunity to experience: yoga, meditation, energy healing, a Mayan Mud Circle, Temazcal, Full Moon Ceremony, drumming, dance, Shakti practices, excursions, and time alone to recharge, realign and reconnect.

This retreat is also worth 20 hours toward your Embody Truth Yoga Teacher Training 500 Hour Program. If you are enrolled in our 500 Hour Program, speak to Dana directly about using these hours for Teacher Training fulfillment.

Register today by paying a 50% deposit. Book by September 15th and receive FREE airport pickup!




“I signed up for Dana’s retreat on a whim without knowing a soul. I am so glad I did because I made amazing connections and had an incredible, blissful weekend! Being a Holistic Health Coach, I understand firsthand the importance of slowing down, self-care, eating light and healthy and just having fun. Dana isn’t just a yoga instructor, she empowers people to go deep within and inspires people to live a life from the inside out. Her energy is contagious and I can’t wait to go on another retreat with her again.”
Jill Shapiro – certified wellness coach,

“I just want to say how blessed I feel to have experienced such a sacred space with you all. It truly was magical from the start. Dana, you have such a way of bringing us to the mat with power,purpose and a true sense of oneself. You are an inspiration on the mat as well as in life. I am headed into my life with the feelings I took home from the blissful, amazing retreat and will hold them dear to my heart, summoning them when needed! Can’t wait until the next one!”
Pauline Osborn – Estethician Complexions Skin Care

“Dana’s way of teaching yoga has been very transformative for me. She has a passion that is rare, even in yoga teachers. She takes what for many, is strictly exercise and shares the belief that yoga is a state of being and that when integrated into your life can have dramatic, positive effects physically, mentally and spiritually.”
Erin West

“Just a quick note to tell you all how wonderful Dana’s retreat was for me. It was an incredible humbling and transforming experience to be around so many kind, wise, beautiful and grounded people. Watching all of you do the necessary work it takes to feel better in this life…was rather inspirational for me. You all have incredible practices and I felt honored to be with all of you. Thank you Dana for creating such a supportive space for everyone to grow…learn and feel loved.”
