Meet Your Host

Known for her nuanced, inclusive, and humor-infused approach to spirituality and the healing arts, Elizabeth DiAlto is an Embodiment Specialist and a Spiritual Futurist.

In 2013 she founded the School of Sacred Embodiment, where she’s developed a range of healing and liberatory frameworks and modalities that blend together movement, energy work, and mystical wisdom. Her specialty is helping people live through what she calls the highest part of all of us – our Wild Soul.

A native New Yorker with Boricua and mixed-European roots, Elizabeth now calls Miami home, is an avid salsa dancer, and has a laugh that has been described as “a sound bath of sunshine and joy.”

Join us at the CHERISH Retreat to ...

Practice, learn, and embody deeper Self-Love and Body Love + Reverence than you've ever known

We’ll spend our first two days exploring the School of Sacred Embodiment’s Self-Love Framework through workshops and a range of embodiment practices: Wild Soul Movement Wisdom + Flow classes, healing meditations, and energetic attunements. We’ll also have plenty of time for reflection, contemplation, and sharing. 

Our third day will be our “sensual” excursion day. After breakfast, we’ll travel to the nearby stunning town of Ronda, where you will enjoy either some spa time at the Aguas de Ronda Hammam (traditional Arab baths, wet and dry sauna, and massage included!) OR a traditional white village and olive oil factory tour (olive oil, cheese, and sherry wine tasting included!). Enjoy an optional Wild Soul Movement Fusion class with Elizabeth to wind down in the evening.

Days four and five are dedicated to exploring the pillars of  Body Love + Reverence through workshops and a range of embodiment practices: Wild Soul Movement Wisdom, Flow, and Fusion classes, healing meditations, and energetic attunements. We’ll also have plenty of time for reflection, contemplation, and sharing, and we’ll end our retreat with a Flamenco show in Ronda!

Who is CHERISH for?

If you identify with any of the statements below and you’re a 35+ woman, the CHERISH Retreat is for you:

  • You have a lot of love and care for yourself, but certain things can still spiral you right out of that.
  • You want to feel happy, secure, safe, and even excited about inhabiting your body regardless of it’s shape, size, ability, or age. 
  • You’d love to have a better relationship with sensuality, pleasure, beauty, and joy.

  • You want to get better at tuning into your intuition and trusting yourself. 
  • You sometimes (or often) feel like you’re too much or not enough.
  • You struggle to allocate time and energy for your own needs, dreams, or desires.

MEET YOUR GUEST TEACHERS

Sheehan Ednie-Rosen:

Sheehan has been practicing Wild Soul Movement since 2015 and has been a teacher since 2017. Like so many of us, WSM found Sheehan at the right time, and over the years, it's played a key role in healing her nervous system and helping her find real freedom in her body. Sheehan says, “It is the one movement practice I return to again and again no matter how I'm feeling or what is going on in my life.”

Marjolaine Millette:

Marjolaine has been practicing Wild Soul Movement since 2016 and is currently in her dream job as the Community Manager of the School of Sacred Embodiment. She believes that experiencing deep connection and reverence for our bodies is our birthright and has come to know that when we remember, embrace, and express the gift of who we are, we, as women, will help heal the world.

COMMON QUESTIONS

If you have a question that isn't covered here, email us at hello@untameyourself.com

What is Wild Soul Movement?

Wild Soul Movement is a suite of healing movement classes created by Elizabeth DiAlto.

Wisdom class uses gentle movement and breath to learn to connect with and listen to your body, mantras to reprogram the mind, and meditation to cultivate inner peace. Think of these sessions like work-ins – rather than workouts.

Flow class is a place to reclaim and redefine your connection and relationship to your body, your sensuality, and how you live, move, express, love, and respect yourself. Each playlist is carefully curated to a theme that will have you experiencing your body in loving and liberating ways you likely never have before (unless you’ve taken class already!). Part intuitive, sensual movement, part free dance, these classes are kind of like pole dancing but without the pole.

Fusion class combines Wisdom and Flow to help you develop a kind and loving relationship with your body.

All fitness levels, body shapes, sizes, and abilities, are welcome in all Wild Soul Movement classes. No dance experience is necessary, and we provide plenty of modifications for anyone who needs them.

Do I need to have any particular religious or spiritual belief system to attend?

No. While everything we do at the School of Sacred Embodiment is rooted in integrative practices for the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual consciousness, how you connect to “God” “The Divine” “All That Is” “The Universe” or whatever you call it / however you related to it, is your business. Everything we teach is offered in a way that can be put in the context of whatever your belief system is and we’re not dogmatic about anything

I'm new to Elizabeth's work and the School of Sacred Embodiment, is it possible to speak with her beforejoining?

Of course, fill out the application and where it asks if there’s anything else you want to share, say you’d like to schedule a call with Elizabeth before joining. Marjolaine, our Community Manager will reach out to book it for you.

I have physical restrictions, is this retreat still right for me?

Our answer is it depends! Ultimately it will be up to you. We do our best to create as much safety and comfort as possible for ALL of our people. There’s a place on the application to list anything you want us to know about how to best support you during the retreat (sensory or food sensitivities, dietary restrictions, neurodivergence or learning disabilities, health concerns, injuries, chronic issues, etc). We’ll be in touch with the retreat center and double-check everything to give you any important information about accommodations so you can make a well-informed choice.

How big are the rooms and the beds?

The retreat center is comprised of a collection of charming Spanish villas, with a rustic and cozy feel. That said, bed sizes vary from room to room. There are full-sized and twin-sized beds. All rooms have beautiful shared common spaces featuring various combinations of terraces, pools, tables, sitting areas, and gardens. See the pictures above.

What kind of food is served at the retreat center?

Mediterranean-inspired, vegetarian meals (includes dairy and eggs, no meat). The retreat center also accommodates food sensitivities and allergies, there is a place on the application to indicate any dietary restrictions

What airport do I fly into in Spain?

Sevilla or Malaga

How do I get from the airport to the retreat center?

Our team will coordinate with the organizers at the retreat center to get you a shuttle to and from the airport. The cost is included unless you require private transportation or need to arrive or depart at odd hours that don’t line up with any other retreat attendees. We’ll be in touch to get this taken care of many weeks before the retreat.

What exactly are the optional add-ons?

The retreat center has massage therapists available for a range of massage types.

Akashic Records readings are a source for spiritual guidance. During the reading, we connect with the guides that oversee your soul’s experience across your lifetimes, your soul’s lessons, and your soul’s current path and purpose. Elizabeth with give you a list of suggested questions and ideas for what to ask during your reading if you book one.

Pricing varies – email us at hello@untameyourself.com for exact rates

How do I book an optional add-on?

We’ll be in touch a few weeks before the retreat to book and schedule any optional add-ons in advance. If you’re more of a feel-into-it-on-the-fly kind of person, you can also ask any of the facilitators – Elizabeth, Marjolaine, Sheehan, or retreat staff, about booking once you get there to see what’s available.

What is the refund/cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel for any reason and we can find a person to take your spot, we will refund the amount paid minus a $300 administration fee. If we cannot find a person to take your spot, there are no refunds. As well, if we cannot find a person to take your spot and you’re on a payment plan, you will be required to complete your payment plan as we have to pay the retreat center for the # of spots we reserve either way.

If you would be placed in financial distress in the event that you need to cancel without a refund, we encourage you not to register unless you are certain that you can make it.
