Arrow Retreats is a boutique travel company for adventurous women.
We create group experiences for you to reconnect
with yourself and the world in a whole new way.
Our Aim: To guide you towards a greater knowing of yourself through movement and conscious conversation, to deepen your connection to both your local and global community and bring you back to nature through daily outdoor activities.
Our Promise: You will discover something new. You will refine your focus and deepen your love for yourself and your life. You will be inspired to move forward on a path that aligns with your authentic self.
Our Invitation: To step into your unknown and be open to your own experience.
Each trip is designed to inspire us to shift our focus away from what limits us and place our attention on what we want to bring forth. We will cultivate clarity, steadiness and receptivity so that we can access a greater sense of who we are when we are living from our center. Consider each retreat as the beginning of a whole new journey, where your destination isn't just where you're visiting, but is, you.
We offer experiences that foster self, community and global connection.
We believe that in order to create affective change in the world, we must first understand who we are and what we want as individuals. We offer tools for women to uncover their potential and take action in making their visions reality. We want to show women that anything is possible when you believe in yourself.
Through thoughtful and unique international travel getaways, we are building a global community of women seeking to reconnect and redefine themselves. Our retreats encourage self exploration through movement practices, daily discussions, goal setting, cultural activities, food, music, nature and fitness. Every day of the retreat is designed to develop a deeper connection to yourself and the world.
We designed a retreat experience that isn't just about practicing yoga or just about having unique cultural experiences but marries both elements for the most transformative and meaningful trip you've ever been on.
This isn't a trip for someone better at yoga, or more traveled.
It is 100% for you. Join us.

Anna Meyer, Photographer
My passion for photography and capturing life through the lens of my camera runs deep. Growing up my Dad was a photographer and so we always had a dark room in our house. I would patiently wait outside the door, until he told me it was ok for me to come in, and there I would stand beside him to see the magic happen. To me a photo really is worth a thousand words, or a story! That is my aim really, I desire to tell peoples stories through my photographs. I am an adventurer, a story-teller, a detail-seeker, and embracer of all things lovely. I am based out of Washington D.C. but would love to travel to wherever you may be!
