What are you waiting for?
FOCUS POINT: EXPRESSION
What’s awaiting you:
A luxurious home away from home
A luxurious experience on the tropical island of Ko Phangan is awaiting you! The Villa Chao Pao is really on another level. Expect stunning sunsets, generous room space for you & the tribe inside and outside, the comfiest beds ever & a fully equipped house for all your needs with the most delicious foods!
Villa Chao Pao charms visitors with its minimalist architecture, elegant interiors with a bohemian chic soul and its hanging garden that blends into a lush jungle. The immense 600m² outdoor area includes a shaded sala where you can relax in a hammock to the rhythm of the waves, a terrace furnished with several sunbeds and a 16m long infinity salt-water pool. I can see you sipping a coconut in our pool already!
Movement, Dance & Play
Together we’ll explore the world of movement: conscious moving practices, mobility drills, dancing, and of course traditional muay thai at my favorite place. We don’t require any specific fitness level but an openness to learn and adapt the practices to your own limitations.
Workshops, Plant Medicine Journey, Personal Development
I love collaborating with special souls on these retreats and handpicking the experiences for us. Expect a full range of experiences including breathwork sessions, meditation, sound bath immersions, ice bath exposure, singing, hikes in nature, and women-sharing circles.
Workshops, activities, and plant medicine journeys (magic mushroom) cover topics all around personal development and self-expression, boundary setting, energy polarity (feminine and masculine energies), and habit-building. We’ll create open spaces for us to have deep, raw conversations and face our fears and limiting beliefs.
A tribe of like-minded women which whom you will build connections that last for life!
Luxurious dining experiences
A private thai chef during your entire stay prepares divine meals for us during our stay, to feel nourished and balanced from morning to evening.

YES! I want to make this retreat available to everyone, english therefore is easiest! Since we always have many german speaking people, we can probably also implement some Denglish.

I would say it’s from 30-45 years although I never ask for the age. This is a lucky guess. We attract the same vibe of people no matter the age! People that are able to move, want to grow individually, learn from new experiences and are here to connect!
Looking back on this wonderful week, I can only say that I have rarely experienced people and moments that have such a lasting impact on my life right now. I feel alive again, inspired and energised. It was a heart-opening experience that went beyond body and mind. It taught me that everything is connected and that I don’t need to feel alone with certain issues. We are all in the same boat on a journey into the unknown. Only one thing is certain, we will never stop learning and growing as long as we travel, literally and metaphorically. Thank you for this extraordinary gift!
If I had to summarize this retreat in just three words, they would be sisterhood, heart-opening, and fun. I was amazed at how quickly I connected with everyone, despite being strangers at first. Clouds created a safe and welcoming space where we could be vulnerable, share our experiences, and support each other as we stepped out of our comfort zones and learned more about ourselves. Not only did I have a lot of fun, but I also gained a greater sense of trust in myself and a clearer vision for my life. I am so grateful for this transformative experience, these “strangers” who have become dear friends in such a short amount of time, and the memories I will always treasure.
The second time I had the opportunity to participate in Claudia’s retreat, and once again, it was AMAZING! Inspiration, connections, empowerment, embracing, and powerful. I am so grateful for the moments with the girls and the genuine relationship that has been built together to grow even more. Thank you, Clouds, for having the power to create something this beautiful and a safe space for women in this world. 🌎🏽
The retreat was all about quality time and connection with beautiful female souls in magical surroundings. A filled program with many diverse activities bringing you out of your comfort zone and beyond
Leaving you replenished, fulfilled, and empowered. ❤️
It has been a week full of many new experiences in different ways! From physical to mental, from joyful to deep and sad. It feels like it has been much longer! And the connections I made with those beautiful humans are truly special. I am super thankful for it and would recommend it to everyone who wants to feel alive.
Claudia has been accompanying me for a few years now and I have already attended a few very intense and beautiful workshops with her. However, the retreat was like the pinnacle, and I was able to let go during the week. Claudia knows how to bring together groups that harmonize so well. The days were intense but full of joy, and I myself made the greatest gift with the retreat: time and moments for me to move forward. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Claudia for your work and your creations. It was so wonderful!
This experience, like any, is what you make of it. But picture being surrounded by nature, a group of amazing vulnerable women holding space for each other, in a safe environment, on a paradise island… yup! There’s a lot of introspection, collective reflection and soooo many fun, daring activities with enough time to wonder solo. There’s no judgment, just pure kindness and a Momma-bear hostess to take care of you, but also hold you accountable. Just like magic: it only works if you believe in it; but I recommend and encourage any woman who wants to do more self-exploration, to dare to reTREAT themselves with Claudia’s Movement!
The retreat with Clouds was a transformative experience where I was pushed out of my comfort zone. Clouds created a safe space and brought together a group of women who supported each other. Like a real sisterhood🤍 The workshops and activities were inspiring and profound. Clowds’ presence and empathy were remarkable, and the retreat helped me overcome my fears and strengthen myself. I am grateful for this experience and highly recommend it to anyone who has the opportunity to attend a retreat with Clouds.
I have seen the retreat invitations several times before but didn’t dare to sign up. Spending a week under one roof with 10 other women? That couldn’t go well. But that fear was completely unfounded. The group was truly perfect. From the very first moment, I felt comfortable. This, and many moments during the retreat, showed me that we can step out of our comfort zones and something good happens when we allow it. Claudia was always attentive to us, challenging us, sharing a wealth of knowledge, but also accepting when something didn’t feel right for us. The program was diverse and a lot of fun. The ice bath was the highlight for me. The support, unity, and singing our song together will stay with me forever. Thank you.
This retreat was a turning point in my life. It’s incredible what love can do! When women support women. I’m happy I listened to the call and made this decision!
I found new paths to explore movement, connected to so many aspects of feminine energy. It was a proper way to start a year with myself!
