Becoming Feral Retreat

October 19 - 22, 2023

Becoming feral retreat

We are domesticated from birth. There are many elements of our lives we are unable to control or choose. We don't pick our first language. We don't choose our first home. We don't choose our first school. External influences, parents, teachers, schooling, religion, instill beliefs in us. As children, we accept these domestications, or rules, because we have no power over them. As we move forward through life, we encounter new beliefs, new rules, and further our domestication, mostly out of habit or fear. We hesitate to question the "rules" or challenge societal "ideals."
Becoming Feral is about breaking the bondage of domestication. We will explore the thoughts, beliefs, and habits that no longer serve us and what we can do to free ourselves. Join us for a weekend of yoga practice, community, and fun games that will offer opportunities to release our inhibitions and remember we are free. If you are seeking to become more feral, connect with nature, and live authentically, this is the place and we are your people.

Lynn Slocomb

E-RYT® 500, YACEP® w/ Yoga Alliance
Lynn took her first yoga class in her mid twenties. At that time, she was the health and fitness director for the YWCA in Lancaster, PA and the quintessential gym rat, and had been teaching group exercise for almost a decade. Yoga was just too quiet, too slow, and too time consuming. Little did she know.

After battling stage III breast cancer, several surgeries, and significant weight gain, high-impact workouts and the “gym” atmosphere only led to chronic insecurity and pain. In addition, life became busier and busier as her family of two grew to seven when she married her husband, Christopher and they relocated to Landenberg. It was here where Lynn was introduced to The Light Within through Unite for Her. Lynn has been practicing consistently since 2012.

Lynn loves a slower, intentional practice. Her teaching style is informed by her personal practice, and her most favorite format to teach is a slower, intentional vinyasa. She believes your breath is your most valuable teacher and yoga should never hurt. Also, the guiding principle of yoga is “do no harm,” and when she purchased The Light Within in 2017, her intention was to continue to foster and nurture the wonderful commUNITY already created and continue to create a safe space for EVERYone and everyBODY.

Off the mat, you can catch Lynn in your local coffee shop, hanging out in the early morning listening to her collection of wind chimes, walking in the woods with friends or family, doing all things creative, getting lost on a back road with “her guy,” or loving on her family.


Tracey Eltringham

E-RYT® 500, YACEP® w/ Yoga Alliance
Yoga has been a part of Tracey’s life for over 14 years. She felt an immediate connection in her first class. Her personal practice enables her to live with a greater sense of ease, a sense of mindfulness, and the ability to feel connected to others.

She is a (R)egistered (Y)oga (T)eacher that has completed 500 hours of training. Tracey has additional training in teaching restorative yoga and teaching yoga to children, those over 50 and those with fuller bodies.

Tracey is authentic and easy to relate to. Her motto is come as you are, with the hopes that you leave feeling empowered, encouraged, and more connected with yourself. She is enthusiastic about sharing her love of yoga and meditation. Off the mat, Tracey spends time with her family and their three dogs, and tries to slip into nature for a brisk walk as often as possible.
