BACK TO NATURE Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat Portugal

Ground to Grow

01 – 08 May 2022 in the nature reserve in Portugal in Sāo Luís, just an hour’s drive from Faro and 2 hours from Lisbon.

Take yourself out for a week. Away from urban stress, the news and the taking part in the pain of the world to connect to the beauty of the world and life itself. Retreat to reset in nature with Advanced Yoga teacher Steph Jaksch and Avurvedic-soul-food cooked with local amazing ingredients by experienced Ayurveda Chef Yvonne Wagner.

Happening in the Pachawa Retreat Center. In this place you can connect with yourself and remember what it really means to be a part of life. Surrounded by stunning nature and opportunities to engage with the each other, we provide a safe place where growth, reconnection and transformation can take place.

In the silence, your inner voice can be heard. Your projects can sprout and grow. You can feel or regain the stability of your own feet on the ground.

In this place, hearts open – and love begins to flow again.

About the Yoga

The attention to the moment is best practiced with the beauty and art of vinyasa Krama. We will root ourselves with balancing poses and readjust our beliefs of what we can or cannot do, with elements of Kundalini Yoga. I will guide you through relaxation and Meditation..

Let’s expand our comfort zone together on a journey of movement sound and spirit.
