White Owl retreats was created by Lucie Andersen-Wood, Maddy Hill, Paula Ellis-Hill & Camilla Goldbeck-Wood. We are passionate about life, yoga & dance, healthy food, loving ourselves & mindfulness. We are combining these core aspects of life in a luxurious, exotic setting with good company and like-minded souls!
Lucie feels that the intensity of learning and personal development within a residential retreat allows people to really take stock of where they are and have the courage to develop insights and make changes that they may have been avoiding for years or decades even! Lucie is is a Psychotherapist and a qualified teacher of a form of YogaDance called "Let your YogaDance" which combines yoga poses and dance with powerful visualizations, meditations & great music to enable us to focus on 7 aspects of ourselves: our grounded self, courageous self, creative self, loving self, expressive self, thinking self & our peaceful self or spiritual self.
Camilla is a Movement and Yoga teacher. She Loves Marrakech and really enjoys the roof top yoga sessions in the early mornings. The call to prayer is inspirational to her. In addition to being a yoga teacher extraordinaire she is also a talented singer, musician and cook!
There is something about being in an exotic location with great weather that allows us to step outside of ourselves and see ourselves as we are and how we want to be. Very often it is a case of simply remembering who we really are and learning the tools we need to support ourselves. Marrakech is such an amazing city full of contrasts, sunshine and a vibrant energy that is contagious!
Maddy is a kind and beautiful soul who has a passion to encourage and help people to feel the best they can! She is a professionally trained dancer and both dances and teaches as well as enjoying spending quality time with people close to her! She believes that being at peace is the key to life and strives to enjoy it to its maximum! She loves to use her kind and caring attributes to encourage others to become the best version of themselves. She loves meditation and has recently come to see mindfulness an an invaluable tool, along with good food and amazing company which is what exactly our White Owl retreat is offering! She can't wait to be a part of this amazing opportunity and meet some incredible people!
