VIP Lodge Retreat
Hey sis, are you looking for a good time?
Are you longing for a positive change, inspiration, something to set you on fire? Do you want to laugh and dance, eat and drink, relax and grow…in the luxury and comfort you so seldom receive but so deeply deserve?
I see you—longing for an escape from the drudgeries of everyday life. Looking for the time and space to devote to your growth and happiness. Wishing for more people in your life that truly understand you. Hoping to carve a good time out of your busy schedule… somewhere, somehow. Wishing you could be free, really free—if only for a few days.
Well, friend—here’s your chance.
Join me and a dozen of my friends on a three night, three day luxury getaway + personal growth retreat set in a gorgeous and expansive multi-building lodge nestled in the
SMOKEY MOUNTAINS OF TENNESSEE, NEXT OPEN SESSION: NOV. 12-15, 2020.
STRIPCABIN is a women-only, badassery-cultivating, sexy-dancing, dream-creating, plan-writing, photoshoot-taking, massage-receiving, good-meal-eating, hot-tub-relaxing, lap-dance-giving good time designed to bring together likeminded women interested in expanding our spirits, moving our bodies, crafting a vision for our futures, and creating bonds with friends new and old.
IT’S TIME TO LEARN WHO THE HELL YOU ARE, HOW TO LOVE THAT PERSON, AND HOW TO NURTURE HER INTO GREATNESS.
Dare to invest in you.
You’ll be thanking yourself if you do, and kicking yourself if you don’t. Want to jump right in on this unforgettable experience?
This is your chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy the pampering you so rarely get to experience.
while having the time of our lives in a luxury mountain lodge all to ourselves
Life owes you nothing. You owe life everything.
Only you can author the existence you desire. This is your chance to dedicate three days to actively cultivating a better you through self-care, critical thinking, sensual movement, sisterhood, and joy. The laundry can wait—you can’t.
Picture it: no cooking, no cleaning, no chores.
Now, replace those responsibilities with: delicious fully-catered meals, an amazing massage by my personal masseuse, an empowering photoshoot, late-night chats by fireplace, early morning dips in the swimming pool, happy gal pals in great moods, secrets shared in a hot tub beneath the stars, not to mention the amazing learning experiences for both body and mind lead by Dr. Lindsay Byron aka Lux ATL and her dear friends and guest instructor Michelle Mynx.
Your creative ideas and dreams can only flourish under committed and dedicated hours, and yet—if you’re like a lot of us—you find it hard to carve that time out of your day-to-day life. Nonetheless, your brilliance deserves commitment—in fact, only through commitment can you ever achieve your full level of badassery.
IT’S TIME TO LEARN WHO THE HELL YOU ARE, HOW TO LOVE THAT PERSON, AND HOW TO NURTURE HER INTO GREATNESS.
Dare to invest in you.
You’ll be thanking yourself if you do, and kicking yourself if you don’t. Want to jump right in on this unforgettable experience?
“There are so many things that made this past weekend amazing! Getting turns on the pole and watching my idols dance was probably the best part for me; along with hanging out naked in the hot tub just talking about some real life shit until 5am. It was so nice being able to be surrounded by beautiful women who didn’t care about my gender or sexual orientation, but actually loved it; and that we could talk about real shit, like coming out to your family. I don’t feel I have many friends in this current stage of my life, but now I feel so close to all of you—it was life changing. Thank you for one of the best weekends I have had in a long time, love you all and can’t wait to see what’s next!”

At Stripcabin, you will be able to enjoy all the delights of the club—plus live out fantasies of your own—with zero of the annoyances or discomfort of an actual strip club. Welcome to Stripcabin, where you are our top customer and will be treated as such!
Stripcraft workshops are designed to empower your body and your mind. You will be lead through key selections of the Spellbook process by the creator of the program herself—yours truly, Lux ATL—eliminating all guess work and ensuring that you devote your full attention and energy to the cultivation of your ultimate badassery.
Kinetic Connections Workshop
The Kinetic Connections Workshop is taught by badass Michelle Mynx, a pole dance pioneer, lifelong stripper, and burlesque superstar. Stripcabin offers a variety of styles and skills certain to hit your sweet spot! Learn to create and nurture a genuinely emotional and physical bond with your Stripcabin Sisters through a series of guided exercises focused on dance flow movement, eye contact and platonic, sensual, safe touch. Learn to see and be seen, to give and receive unconditional, non-transactional comfort, and connect spiritually with another woman in a safe, accepting, and loving environment. There will be dancing and hugging so come prepared for movement. Comfortable layers of clothes recommended. Knee pads suggested but not required. This workshop stands alone or as a sequel to Soul Seduction.
Plenty of room to dance during our movement workshops in the gorgeous studio space located just outside our front door.
This newly-constructed event facility doubles as a wedding chapel (!) and contains a large open room with small stage and hardwood floors perfect for moving around. This facility also includes dozens of folding chairs, allowing us to turn it into a church of our own during Lux’s sermon! Enjoy all of the benefits of an open dance floor during workshops and dance parties; get a kick out of the glowing cross behind the pulpit as Lux preaches; take the stage with yo’ bad self when the mood strikes you! And when it’s time to rest and relax, the comfort of the lodge is just steps away.
Sweeping vistas on the wrap-around porch
as we work through deep discussions, share secrets, and laughs. Enjoy a beautiful natural landscape as you relax and focus on the cultivation of your best self from a place of positivity and joy.
A photoshoot with an amazingly talented photographer!
Our photographer will provide each attendee a personal photo session that includes a couple of locations within the house and two clothing changes. Within two weeks of the event, each client will receive a private online gallery of edited images. From these, you can pick 5 to download as high res digital file. You will also have the option in your gallery to purchase additional images. Here’s your chance to view yourself in all of your fullness through the lens of a female photographer devoted to helping women find their unique beauty.
Our photogtapher will also provide candid behind the scenes photos of the entire retreat, and all attendees will receive a link to that gallery to download at no charge.
A fifty minute massage
Each attendee will have the option of Swedish or Deep Tissue massage, tailored specifically to your problem areas. Enjoy aromatic oils and beautiful views as you relax your cares away!
Delicious and healthy meals
fully catered for the entire weekend. You don’t have to do a thing except show up hungry at mealtime—our personal chef will take care of the rest! We offer menu options for vegetarians, meat-eaters, and those with special dietary needs, as well.
24-hour access to our private heated indoor pool,
housed in its own special pool house right beside the event facility. You can swim in the morning, swim at night, swim in your birthday suit, or cover up tight—it’s up to you!
The Company of Likeminded Women
ready to have a great time, share wisdom, roll around the dance floor, and spread love. You’ll make friends and create bonds that last a lifetime in this intimate and happy setting.
And finally, a flat-out good time.
Late night gab sessions, clothing-optional dance parties, s’mores by the fire, games of PacMan and Air Hockey in the rec room, dreams shared under the stars, a morning skinny-dip in the indoor pool, a dreamy massage overlooking the Smokey Mountains, a photoshoot that encourages pride and love for your body: this is how you’ll spend your plentiful downtime at Stripcabin. There’s no pressure and no chores. Instead, you will learn and you will grow—and you will find the whole damn experience relaxing and delightful.
“Even though I have a quiet and reserved energy, I had a smile on my face 24/7 all weekend. All of you beautiful ladies made me feel so welcome and comfortable. I was very impressed by everyone’s pole skills, and I could watch Lux, Dani, and Michelle dance for hours upon hours. Really, you ladies were exquisite! The only thing that could of made it better is having more days, more lap dances, and lap dance lessons! I can’t wait until next time!”

Introducing Your Stripcabin Crew!
Lux ATL is an itinerant preacher for the feminist revolution and your favorite pole dancer with a PhD. She’s a former English professor and lifelong exotic dancer turned professional writer, speaker, and teacher of movement for both the body and spirit. She is an activist for women’s empowerment through radical expression of the sensual self. She has spent the last three years internationally touring “Stripcraft,” her workshop for women seeking to reconnect with their confidence and sexiness. She now turns that energy towards her epic feminine empowerment retreats, of which Stripcabin will be the seventh event!
At Stripcabin, Lux will teach QUEENS OF THE NIGHT–amateur night, that is! Perhaps you already know that Lux got her start stripping when she won an amateur contest in 1999. In this workshop, Lux will lead you through devilishly fun challenges for body and mind, designed to up your charisma and charm by 666%.
Michelle Mynx has been pole dancing since 1999, when pole dancing was still virtually unknown and she worked incredibly hard to develop and help create not only her signature moves and doubles tricks but also many classic tricks and spins we all love today with nothing but sheer will power, imagination, determination, and passion on her side. She has won multiple exotic dance and pole dancing awards over the years. She has been a featured performer and instructor at many wonderful pole events such as Dance Wicked for a Week in Jamaica, The Michigan Pole and Air Festival, and the Great Midwest Pole Dance Competition, just to name a few.
Michelle also has a great passion for teaching this amazing art form to others. Teaching since 2006, she opened up her very own studio, The Michelle Mynx Academy of Pole Dance in 2010 and has a large arsenal of loyal students and performers. This October will mark the 12th year for her annual student and guest showcase, The Mynx Acrobatic Pole Dancing Extravaganza.

Stripcabin is a loving environment of women lifting one another up, cheering each other on, and having the kind of fun you haven’t had since you started adulting!
Perhaps you’re the more reserved type—no worries there either! This party is open to all levels of dress and comfort.
What can I expect from the workshops?
Inspiring sermons in the tradition of the Stripcraft philosophy, sexy choreography, performance challenges, lap dances, and real talk with likeminded women. Learn how to materialize your dreams while empowering your body in the meantime! All workshops are taught by seasoned instructors in an intimate setting designed to engender the creation of a better you. Expect to create lasting friendships while you’re at it!
Who can I expect to meet at Stripcabin?
All attendees will be fully vetted by Lux through the application process. It is my priority to create a safe and joyful space for my fellow bad bitches with good hearts! Come prepared to meet some of your newest best friends from all over the country—even the world! Coming alone and worried that you’ll be the fifth wheel in a group full of already-close friends? Think again—most guests will be arriving by themselves, and will be ready to make new pals, just like you.
What is the room situation?
There are 9 bedrooms in the lodge, each with its own private en suite bathroom. Some rooms have queen beds and others have queen bunk beds. Each attendee will share a room with other Stripcabin sisters. Of course, you can request to room-share with a friend—or simply have a slumber party with new friends! If you wish to room with specific friends, please note this request and the names of your friends in the application and Lux will make every effort to accommodate. Your cost will vary slightly depending upon which room you select.
Will people be naked?
Yes, occasionally. The dancers (Lux ATL and Michelle Mynx) will dance nude at the kick-off party. All attendees may feel free to dress as sexy as they like, and reveal as much as they desire. Attendees will be invited to participate in “Amateur Night” during the kick-off party so that all ladies can have a chance to play stripper if they so desire! The hot tub and swimming pool will be clothing-optional all weekend long. Several of the workshops offer partial-nudity options as well. As a reminder, this is an all-woman event and a safe space of body positivity and sisterhood. We love your body, no matter the shape or size, and hope you love ours right back!
What will we eat? What if I have special dietary needs?
All meals will be fully catered and will be yummy and healthy! You will have your choice of a vegetarian menu or a meat-eaters menu, and can also request special dietary accommodations if necessary. If you have allergies or other special eating needs, please describe your needs on the application.

Have you ever hosted an event like this before?
I’ve hosted retreats all over the world starting in April of 2016 with a similar (but smaller) wildly successful event called Stripcabin. This event was a fundraiser for my performance in Miss Pole Dance America, and operated on a more modest scale, lasting two nights and one day. In November 2016, I hosted the first full-fledged Stripcabin which was a three night, three day luxury retreat including workshops, massages, food, and photography. This event was a huge success and inspired me to host even more retreats. In June 2017, I hosted two back to back retreats in a crazy Scotish castle. In March of 2018, we went with two sessions in Costa Rica and my most recent retreat in New Orleans was a huge success. I hold several retreats per year now all over the world. Women travel from all over the globe to be part of my retreats—don’t miss out on the VIP experience this time!
Where exactly is the lodge located?
In the mountains of Sevierville Tennessee–the birthplace of Dolly Parton! Address and directions will be provided upon purchase.
How can I get to the lodge?
The McGhee Tyson Airport in Knoxville is a 45 minute drive to the lodge. There is plenty of parking at the lodge for those who will be roadtripping, like myself. Once all attendees have paid their first deposit, I will create a Ride Share Google doc where we can work out carpools.
Take the risk of unapologetic self-love and badassery cultivation, and I guarantee…
The investment you make in Stripcabin is an investment in your holistic growth, a chance to commit real time and attention toward understanding exactly who you are and what you desire, and an opportunity to devote concerted attention to cultivating your best self. Furthermore, you will enjoy an unforgettable long weekend of contentment, fun, and relaxation; new connections and alliances with other badass women; delicious and healthy meals; a massage to relax away your worries; and a photo shoot sure to make you feel like a goddess.
When was the last time you devoted real time and energy to the loving cultivation of yourself? Here’s your chance. Stripcabin is not a frivolous luxury—it is a real commitment to crafting exactly the life you desire.
I did it—and so can you.
Stripcabin is an investment in your holistic well-being that you deserve, desire, and will never forget.
So what are you waiting for?
Once you make your initial payment,
here’s what’s going to happen:
You will receive a welcome email with additional details about Stripcabin, area information, and travel tips.
Later, you will also receive sign-up sheets for the photoshoot and massage schedules. Fill out your preferred time slot and leave the rest to our photographer and masseuse!
Finally, you will receive a menu selection sheet in which you select “vegetarian,” “meat-eater,” or “special dietary needs.” Here you can explain any special needs you may have (such as allergies or a gluten-free diet) to make the menu work for you.
One week before the Stripcabin, you will receive a reminder email with a packing list, the address and directions (in case you lost ‘em!), and any last-minute details..
This is a one-time-only event — so don’t put it off until “next time!”
If you’ve ever dreamed of an epic getaway with likeminded friends ready for adventure; if you’ve ever wished for the time and space to devote to cultivating your best self with no interruptions; if you’ve longed for an escape from the stress of your everyday life and a chance to recharge; if you’d love to roll deep with Lux ATL for a wild weekend of fun and empowerment— say YES to investing in your happiness and your growth and sign up now, before spaces sell out!
Curious if this retreat is for you?
Wondering if you’ll have fun? Just listen to what attendees of my prior retreats have to say about their experiences:
“I am now on the train to London for another days hard graft in the big smoke, and thought I’d do some daydreaming about last weekend. In no particular order, here are some memories:
- Meeting lots of people for the first time and feeling like we’d been friends for ages
- Not having to think or talk about corporate bollocks for a few days
- Getting really dressed up in a way that would normally induce harassment
- Being too drunk to remember any coherent pole moves so just smugly took my clothes off instead
- Excelling my Anglo Saxon drinking skills with neat cinnamon vodka (it didn’t burn after the third shot) on top of light beer
- Eagerly watching lots of lap dances and pole wizardry
- Having to say stuff in an English accent and automatically inducing mirth
- Not leaving the cabin at all, not feeling guilty
- Making the hot-tub overflow and squirt water
- The pretty view and wondering how far away in miles England was…
I miss you all and can’t wait to see what’s next!”
“First and foremost, I already miss you guys dearly. This amazing trip would not be possible without having met all of you awesome ladies! I loved the welcoming energies of everyone, the lap dances, performances, drunken debauchery, the massage, the conversations, Cards Against Humanity (brilliant idea), hot tub mishaps (LOL), and most importantly the LAUGHS! I usually act a damn fool with my silliness but I had no time simply because I was always preoccupied with gut wrenching laughter! I absolutely loved was the beautiful weather and scenery, the serene calmness of the mountains, and the exquisite cabin. I’d love to have a lesson of some sort from LUX for the next go round. However, I loved all the down time we had to chill and relax.”
mia symonette, houston, tx
“Lux has graduated from the difficult work of stripper, has kept her self esteem intact, and successfully used her hard work to begin an independent career as a bad ass! All the while, empowering other women in so many ways. She exemplifies what I dream of for so many underclass women. I am beyond thrilled to have been part of Stripcabin, which I personally view as a celebration of Lux’s new independent career. I also am also grateful to have the opportunity to have met Lindsay, the woman behind “Lux ATL.” It was also wonderful to feel successful in my own personal struggles. Women are full of body issues, and growing up in this trans body has been really painful. My body image is fairly good now, after years of hard work, and I never thought I could get where I am. It was amazing to feel the freedom to dance in a judgment free space, and it felt so good to make it rain! Massages, hot tub, dancing, Cards Against Humanity. It was all so perfect. My only wish is that it would have lasted longer.”

Your compliments are so dear to me, and your requests have been heard loud and clear!
