Women’s Yoga Holiday

Portugal 23rd - 30th May 2020

Embrace your inner Goddess and tap into well of divine shakti energy that dwells within to empower and inspire!

 

Imagine spending a week in the company of divine feminine energy; waking up each day to a Goddess Yoga practice to empower and break free from the chains that hold you back from authenticity. You’ll step out into the Portuguese sunshine and drink in the sweet forest air before nourishing your belly with delicious healthy breakfast. You’'ll take a plunge in the saltwater pool to cleanse and renew allowing your own inner goddess to emerge. The afternoon will be spent exploring the forest or contemplating the days theme as you laze in a hammock gently swayed by the light breeze. The afternoon practice of yoga and meditation provides opportunity to dive deeper into the heart of your soul, unraveling that which needs to be freed and giving space for your sweet true essence to be revealed. There’ll be laughter, friendship and meaningful conversations that nurture, inspire and empower you to reestablish your connection to self and charge the of divine source that throbs within.

I am collaborating with my gorgeous and extremely talented Yogini friend, Aimee Stapleford, to offer this very special retreat. We both share a similar teaching style that comes straight from the heart. Both Hatha and Restorative styles will be taught with Ayurveda, Philosophy and Chanting interwoven through the practice to give depth and meaning to each workshop style class. On two days there will be optional workshops offered - Ayurveda for Womens Health with Aimee, and Inspire, Empower & Manifest with myself. There will be healthy vegetarian food on the menu and a variety of accommodation options to suit your budget or your hankering to be immersed in nature! Due to check in/out times the retreat is 7 nights and 6 full days at the centre.
