Leave relaxed, grounded, energized & reconnected
Women of all ages invited
Each day will consist of two main classes:
the morning class will be devoted to a fluid rhythmic asana practice followed by deep relaxation (designed by Women for Women).
the afternoon practice will consist of a more workshop-based class with lots of room for conversation, restorative yoga, meditation and Yoga Nidra.
The combination of the two daily classes will leave us grounded in our bodies, calm in our minds and full of energy.
The practice will invite us to connect to the earth, water and air elements within us:
grounding poses and mudra (gesture) to balance, calm and soothe us;
watery fluid movement that connect us to our pelvis, hips, belly and wombspace;
breathing practices (pranayama) that connect us to our heart, awakening our inner female energy (shakti) for increased vitality, strength and deep inner healing.
The practice also includes:
pelvis and pelvic floor awareness (bandha)
meditation & sound
creative and fun content with a balance between moving poses and restorative yoga
seasonal (spring) and moon cycles (full moon) influenced poses
information on yoga practices to support us throughout our individual monthly and yearly cycle of change
Therapeutic adaptations and options to suit the different stages of your monthly cycle, or your own personal needs e.g. pregnancy, postnatal, peri-menopausal, recovering from illness or injury
This retreat is open to all woman of any age or life stage. Through sensitive, open, honest and generous self-enquiry we will support you in discovering your own true ideas and desires as they unfold.
The retreat takes place around the Full Moon, a good time to release that which no longer serves you, what you no longer need in your life or an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown. We’ll also be doing a number of full moon related activities in between yoga classes.
Spend seven days in harmony with nature in a blissful mountain retreat.
Join us lovely women as we gather together to let go, have fun and embrace our curves!
Our Allwoman retreat is being held at an established and very loved beautiful retreat centre set in six hectares of a traditional Portuguese rural estate in the gorgeous countryside of central Portugal. The Retreat centre was founded by my friends and fellow yogi’s Peter & Sue back in 2008. Pictures of the retreat itself, bedrooms and the local area can be accessed here. It is truly beautiful.
All the amazing food, yoga teaching and accommodation is included in the retreat price. Additional services such as massage, or individual 121 yoga sessions do cost extra.
Flights need to be booked by you into either Lisbon or Porto. There is a coach which can be booked to take you to Oleiros from either arrival destination and you will be met there for the final transfer to the retreat space itself. Or alternatively Car hire may be the right option for you.
Arrival is Saturday evening. Leaving is the following Saturday morning at 8am.
