Ready to renew yourself?

Your mind, body, and soul will replenish with a new powerful immersion during this 7-day Yoga & Movement Retreat in Portugal. You will reconnect & rekindle your inner self and explore the vast expansiveness of your mind and body. This retreat will provide you with space to empower yourself, replenish and release, while you dive fully into deep Vinyasa and Budokon Yoga flows & discover the depths of  Budokon Yoga & Mobility practice.

You will not only explore the beautiful surroundings of Praia da Luz, taking a boat tour of the spectacular grottos and caves around Piedade between Lagos and Praia da Luz or take a coastal boat ride to see the world-famous Benagil Caves, but we will also dive into the 6 pillars that are the foundation of the Budokon Movement System (Relationships, Nutrition, Emotions, Thoughts, Movement, & Environment), the system has successfully united the main drivers for wellness and fulfilling life. We will develop the concept of "living in a community', connecting with a new environment, building new relationships... and experiencing your journey into inner balance. To ignite into this journey, we'll explore free forms of movement, we'll share rounds of mind science, take time to discover, shift back to our beginner's mind, connect directly with the mind to find the strength within, and thru our focused awareness encountering our inner warrior & enjoying the easiness, calmness, and compassion of our inner Yogi. 

This yoga immersion is an all-levels appropriate adventure that will help you advance both in your physical practice and mental awareness.

The Experience

Every morning will start with:

 

Meditation & Mind Science

When we meditate, we inject far-reaching and long-lasting benefits into our lives: We lower our stress levels, we get to know our pain, we connect better, we improve our focus, and we're kinder to ourselves. Simple yet highly effective meditation practices will be provided to cleanse the mind, increase focus and attention, and reset/release unwanted thought patterns. Meditation tools are accessible to everyone regardless of prior experience or not. Like physical practice, you will receive guided meditations as well as days of complete silent meditations.

The Physical Practice:

Each session will be full of techniques to advance your body awareness, strengthen your muscles, and increase your functional range of motion.

During our sessions, you will thoroughly explore the body, educating you on all areas including your spine, core, back, shoulders, hips, lower legs, arms, and wrists. Practice Styles: Vinyasa, Power Flows, Budokon Yoga & Budokon Mobility, Yin, and Active Release, thru all these you will gain access to a wider range of postures and transitions where you will fully transform your asana practice.

Observation of the senses and state of mind, and how to express these thru movement.

She is more than happy to have the opportunity to share all that she already learned and still learning along the way.
