The Four Goddesses of Yoga

Reconnect with your feminine energy as you explore, inspire, and embrace what is uniquely you through this blissful Yoga-Mojo “Awaken Your Inner Goddess” retreat in North Carolina’s breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains. Discover your inner goddess and unify mind, body, and spirit as Loretta Jo guides you with yoga mythology, mantras, mudras, pranayama & vinyasa inspired practices.

Deepen your practice, on and off the mat, as you come to see yourself through the eyes of the goddesses: Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Kali, opening your mind and spirit to the lessons, the knowledge of mythic feminine energy that comes from them – and within. This Yoga-Mojo Retreat, “Awaken Your Inner Goddess” will leave you relaxed, recharged, and transformed.


Enjoy the rejuvenating, renewing power of Spring in the mountains, far from the stresses and noise of your daily life. Our Art of Living Retreat Center is your mountain get-away, a place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily activities, a place to focus on you, to reflect, to grow, to be. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and enjoy the invigorating, renewing breath of May.

We invite you to be restored by the beauty and power of nature, to strengthen your body, rejuvenate your mind, and renew your spirit. Tap into your feminine energy and understand the power inside you to live beyond your imagination. You’ll hear stories of the Gods & Goddesses of Yoga, learning the myths and power of the goddesses – and find the goddess inside you.
