Shamanic Retreat- A Journey through the Medicine Wheel

With Victoria Pollinger

May 4 - 9, 2020

Prices from: $999 USD

This retreat is designed to take you on a transformative journey through the medicine wheel. Each of the four full days we will focus on one direction releasing the old self while grounding, facing fears and walking through emotions, living in a state of pure joy, connecting with the divine and flowing with the universe.

Mornings will begin with a beautifully curated four directions yoga practice. Some days the practice will include more powerful movement and energizing techniques, and other days will be more about releasing and relaxing through yin and restorative.

A morning meditation will be held to bring in balance for the day ahead.
The afternoon can be used as free time or you can join with the group for an optional activity on the island- ideas include- hiking, visiting one of the many beautiful beaches, snorkeling, going to the fisherman’s village for shopping, spending time at the elephant sanctuary, or visiting temples.

The group activity will correspond to the direction of the medicine wheel. There are many activities for free or you can add on any signature island trips for $50-75 per person through Vikasa. There is also a spa on site for relaxation, pampering and grounding. This open air spa is built along a cliff side overlooking the ocean. They use organic, local made products. They provide traditional thai massage and many other treatments starting at $20. They are open from 9:30am to 6:30pm.
We will meet together again at 5pm. We will have evening activities such as creating a mesa (spiritual alter), drum journey to find your spirit animals, cacao ceremony, mala making, and sound healing. We will end each night with a sacred gathering calling in the 4 directions and spirit guides and offering our gratitude.

You will leave this retreat gifted with the knowledge and wisdom to create sacred space for transformation and healing. You will learn rituals for self care and new ways to stay centered through meditation techniques. You will know how to call upon your guides for help, and how to live your life in a constant state of growth.

Victoria Pollinger

VICTORIA POLLINGER“I have fallen so deeply in love with soulful expression and the healing arts. To me, it all feels magical. Living this lifestyle and sharing it with others is such a gift. It feels like exactly where I was always supposed to be. Doing exactly what my heart has always wanted.”

My whole life changed after my first yoga class. I had overcome some very difficult situations in my life but was still trying to crawl my way out of a dark hole. After that class, it was as if I could finally see that there was a light. It was dim, but I followed it.
Through my journey, I have broken through so many obstacles (most of which I was unknowingly creating). I have realized the things that held me back and discovered the things that set me free. I have learned to strip away the masks that I hid myself with- slowly releasing layers to unveil my truest self. I have learned to sit with myself- no distractions, just me. I have found ways to heal, ways to grow, and feel whole. Ways to release negativity, and bring in love and happiness.​
It wasn’t easy at first, but I continued down that long dark road, following the light. I followed it until the darkness faded away and I was left with a sense of freedom.
What I chose to do with my life makes perfect sense-- sharing with others what makes me the happiest. Sharing what basically saved my life. On this journey I discovered many ways to heal and bring in love and light. And many of those things I now share with others.

My unique offerings blend together the many elements I have traveled the world learning about. My yoga classes blend together many different styles- vinyasa, yin, restorative, ashtanga, kundalini, Hatha, iyengar and power. And I infuse practices with elements of shamanic healing, ayurveda, sacred ceremony, reiki, sound healing, drum journeys, meditation, aromatherapy, adjustments, and more. I look at each session as a complete healing experience. It’s my ultimate goal to hold sacred space for others to create their own transformation and step into living their purest truth.
