Meet your facilitators and hosts:

Sally Meredith
Sally deeply values the importance of cultivating compassion that begins within our relationship toward ourselves. This is one of the greatest gifts she has received from the yogic path. Being intrigued by the experiential anatomy of our bodies and timeless yogic concepts, Sally's offerings will guide you on a poetic journey with your breath, body and heart.

Sally is looking forward to bringing the lens of Chinese Medicine to the retreat, a wonderful tool to guide us in tuning into the rhythm of nature’s seasons (as well as the seasons of our lives). She will share ways we can explore, apply and embody the 5 elements of Chinese Medicine in yoga poses, diet and lifestyle choice, and self care.

Sally works with individuals and groups under her business Sally Meredith - Elements Embodied. A life long Yogi, dancer, therapist, sacred activist and senior facilitator of Yoga, acroyoga, ZenThai Shiatsu, and a number of training programs. Sally is passionate about how we can heal and thrive when we take the courage to come back home to our-self and traverse our own inner landscapes.

Liarna Chantelle Conder

Liarna is most passionate about creating nurturing and supportive environments for people to explore and attune to the innate wisdom of the body through dance, movement, self inquiry and the healing arts practices. She is particularly dedicated to working with trauma that has locked in the body and relational field; thus showing up through the narrative and creating disharmony in ones life. Her mission and intent is to support the unravelling of that which is blocking one from living fully free in the heart of each moment. Liarna especially loves working with dance and movement as tools for authentic expression and to bring a greater sense of balance and harmony through the body and life experience.
Liarna also works with Art to Healing which is a not for profit organization; supporting women in Nepal whom have survived sex slavery and exploitation. The project utilizes art therapy, trauma informed yoga, womens health and Somatic Experiencing to support these women to connect with their bodies in an empowered way; to honour their womanhood and love and respect themselves wholeheartedly.

She also run her own business Rhythm & Resonance- Biodynamic Breathwork and Somatic Integration where she offers BioDynamic breathwork, holistic counselling, womens circles, ceremonial journeys and somatic based therapies for all ages.

Laura Emilia Escudero
Laura’s work promotes self-reflection and contemplation with self-acceptance, compassion, awareness and grace. Laura is passionate about community, creative expression and knowledge of one’s identity, values and beliefs. Her work integrates her Cultural heritage and background in anthropology with her passion and extensive training in yoga, somatics, dance, cosmology and intangible cultural heritage. Laura offers workshops, dance, yoga, movement or dialogue for community cultural development, to build awareness and education around various issues and world causes. Laura is looking forward to collaborating again with her sisters Sally and Liarna again, creating a safe space for women to authentically connect to themselves, others and the whole. A safe space where women can support each other in nourishing themselves, expressing, shedding and letting go while in the context of the cycles of nature and the elements. Laura look’s forward to bringing in her own experience and healing journey of the sacred feminine through free movement, embodiment and somatic practices, mantra and meditation, yoga, partner and bodywork, self-care, sisterhood, community, ritual, cycles of nature and women.

Laura runs her own business Embodhi Spirit ॐ Yoga, Dance & Healing where she offers embodiment and somatic practices, yoga, Thai Yoga massage, dance journeys and free movement meditations. For more information visit:
