My journey to fierce expression and wellness began the moment I was conscious it was possible! From making films and setting up shoots to writing and performing music, studying yoga, and ancient healing modalities; I knew I wanted my own Queendom. Armed with an 11'th grade education I built a brand as a plant-based chef and left the Bay Area for LA in my early 20s. After a decade in the celebrity world while crushing my pop-star dreams on the sunset strip I relocated to Joshua Tree and picked up cameras professionally in 2017.
My photography and video experiences quickly grew and I expanded to 3 countries, creating my Gown and Crown business and developing the concept of Goddess Creation Retreats.
With 2 albums published and my underwater performance art taking form, I embarked on a third album, Odyssee as well as a series of Vedic mantra recordings and breathwork. Now as of 2022, I'm a signed and trained print and commerical model part-time! It's soo exciting to bring this value to my Goddesses and guests, too.
I'm so honored to tie all these unique gifts of artistry and entrepreneurial spirit into inspired containers with women across the world! Thank you to all my previous guests and Goddesses I've had the honor to create with and here's to 2023! Cheers!! AYDRA

I surprised myself by stepping boldly into the Tulum Goddess retreat with Aydra. Wearing a flying dress underwater is something I could never have dreamed of doing! The self reflection and group sharing was beyond illuminating and felt so natural to share with the beautiful ladies whom I collided. If you have any doubts or reservations, don't, just do it!

Aydra put so much love and care into making this special retreat where I felt safe, had so much fun and reconnected back to myself and sisterhood

Making images with Aydra, after morning breathwork and Grateful Goddess Circle was a unique way to explore Tulum and see myself anew through her spectacular photography.

This whole experience was about more than just amazing photos. Friendships were formed, tears of joy and hope shared in a non-judgemental safe and healing space. If you're looking for a journey where you're truly able to express and find yourself or gain an inkling of what you may need to fill your cup, do yourself a favor and book this retreat, you won't regret it

Aydra was awesome. Highly recommend for your next photo shoot. We had a wonderful time and our photos look spectacular. She made me feel comfortable and I HATE taking staged photos.
