Wander Women Global:
On Demand

wherever you are
on demand

Join Wander Women Retreats founder Alexandra Baackes for a little taste of a yoga, sustainability, and mindfulness retreat on your own schedule! Practice joy at home–whether your body is craving a slow flow or sweaty sculpt–with access to yoga, meditations and journaling prompts led by Alex, as well as fun workshops led by a global crew of Wander Women babes!

Living through a global pandemic, lockdowns and re-openings and re-lockdowns has been a crazy rollercoaster–and while we can’t wait to reunite IRL, we know it can be tiring adjusting to a new world and that strictly scheduled virtual events are getting tiresome, too. The Wander Women Retreats team is excited to offer on demand access to our two past virtual retreats. Pick from either our first reflection-based retreat, our second oceans-themed retreat, or grab access to both (they also make great gifts!)

Each on-demand retreat includes seven yoga classes — that’s just over $10 per class! — but also includes several styles of meditation, plenty of educational + relaxing workshops to keep the travel spirit alive, and journaling prompts to reflect and introspect.

Whatever your schedule, wherever your location, enjoy exclusive content from Alex and the Wander Women team on demand!

The Details

These yoga classes, meditations, workshops, and journaling prompts will be available on-demand within 24 hours of purchase. The cost for access for each retreat is $75, or both for $130.

As with all of our retreats, we’ll be donating a percentage of our profits to a charity. This time, we’re so happy to support Another Round, Another Rally; a COVID-19 relief fund for the hospitality industry – we miss incredible hospitality during our retreats and beyond! As a small business, we love paying it forward thanks to all of your support!

What’s Included

Purchasing this on demand access includes the following exclusive content:

• Seven pre-recorded yoga flows designed to challenge the body and recharge the mind
• Six meditation recordings even people who hate meditation can enjoy
• Seven thought-provoking journaling prompts
• Five escape workshops with experts in travel, nutrition, photography, diving, art, home design, blogging, and sustainability

Like any Wander Women Retreat, you can make it your own. Complete the classes on your own time, and if you want to skip something, you do you! We do encourage you to try new things though–some live guests told us they were shocked to find their new favorite activity was watercolor painting, for example, even if they didn’t fancy themselves artists.

What’s Not Included

While we’d love to ship each of you a confetti-filled box (biodegradable confetti, of course!) with crafting supplies, due to various shipping restrictions around the globe, we will refrain and instead you can enjoy shopping at your favorite local supplier for any crafting supplies or yoga materials you don’t yet have on hand. Both Alex and the workshop hosts have provided many modifications in case something is in short supply!

Additionally, though we had a blast connecting in real time over Zoom or Facebook live during the virtual retreats, this on demand retreat does not include the mixology classes, any live workshops, Zoom meet + greets, or private Facebook group access like the live versions of these virtual retreats did.

Yoga + Meditations

You’ll receive access to seven flows and six meditations with our yogi-in-residence, Alexandra Baackes. Classes include vinyasa, with some slow flows, sculpting sets, yummy yin, sweaty band classes, and more! And, we’ll send over a link to Alex’s playlists–aka your new favorite flow music. Many of our past guests have reported coming back to these classes over and over again!

Alex is a RYT 200 Registered Yoga Teacher, a Buti Bands and Sculpt instructor, and a regular yoga practitioner for over a decade. She has a passion for creative sequencing, building badass playlists, and disproving the idea that one can be “bad” at yoga.

All the inspiration, community, and feel-good vibes of a Wander Woman Retreat, from the comfort of your home.

These beloved classes + workshops are from past Wander Women Global retreats. We are so grateful to our past virtual guests for joining us in real time, and are excited to now offer certain elements with this on demand access!

Will this sell out?

Nope, there’s no limit on the number of attendees! We aren’t sure how long this on demand access will be available for purchase, however once you receive on demand access you can download and keep for life!

I still have more questions, or cute photos of my dog. Who do I contact about that?

Um, yes please! Our email is retreats@alexinwanderland.com.
