The Yoga of Sensuality - Sacred self care for women.
A provocative one day retreat into sensuality as a vital aspect of self care. Based on the transformative Sanctuary Self Care Retreats created by Sheila Chacko & Alexandra Macdonald, this ‘’Urban Sanctuary’’ will give you an opportunity to explore and understand your sensuality as the basis and nexus of your health and wellbeing, as well as the source of your creativity and self-actualization.
The transmission and practices employed during this workshop will be informed by yogic teachings and meditative awareness, embodiment practices, shadow work, inquiry and sharing, and education about the female body and the cultural context of being a woman in today’s world.
This unique immersion will be an informative and transformational journey into a rich and deeply empowering subject; that of embodied sensuality as being absolutely fundamental to the thriving of women in all areas of their lives.

Who we are
Sheila and Alexandra are soul sisters, yoginis, and mamas who have dedicated their path to the practice and embodiment of Yoga-well beyond the execution of postures on a mat. Though the beauty and poise of asana is indeed a fundamental part of their path, for them Yoga must eventually filter into each and every aspect of one's life, from the way we take care of ourselves on a day to day basis, to the way we communicate with others and make important choices and decisions in life.
Their many years of practice and study of yoga and working with women have led Alexandra and Sheila into an evolved understanding of yoga for women: one that it is intimately intertwined with their incarnation into female bodies. The inclusion and honoring of femininity and female-ness into the contemporary yogic path is the work that they are forging for the modern day yogini.
For this Urban Sanctuary their shared intention is to create a sensual laboratory in which each woman present can experience her own creative and generative force whilst being held in a respectful, sacred space.
