Embracing the Feminine was founded as an annual women's empowerment festival in 2015 by Allison Benner. Wonderful women teachers and participants gather to create a dynamic, educational safe space where women can explore many aspects of the feminine from movement, yoga and dance to art, leadership, social justice, voice, ancient medicine and healthy sexuality. All funds are donated to women's health and safety initiatives worldwide. Since 2015, we have raised $30,000 and funded rescue centers for girls in Africa escaping female genital mutilation.
Currently, Allison Benner and Anara Lani (creative director) spearhead Embracing the Feminine. Both Allison and Anara are Denver yoga instructors and embodiment educators devoted to supporting health, vitality and sisterhood globally and in their Denver community.
