Summer Retreat

This retreat will meet a protocol of security and hygiene measures, according to the Portuguese Government regarding the covid-19 situation.

Going to retreat gives us the possibility to connect with what is essential in our lives, to experience it in a more direct way, free of conditioning and more receptive and aware of ourselves and our relationships.
Throughout the retreat, we will have mindfulness meditation, yoga, talks, moments to share, moments of silence, delicious vegan meals, all reflecting our quest for greater simplicity and openness.
Yoga helps to unlock the body, to balance energy and to prepare the mind to go deeper, allowing meditation to highlight the subtler aspects of our experience.

• Please bring your own yoga mat. If you don’t have one, let us know in time.
• Please bring your own meditation cushion. If you don’t have one, let us know in time.
• You don’t need to have previous experience on yoga or meditation to attend the retreat.
• The retreat will be led in english.
