SPRING: OPEN UP & REVIVE
From the Friday 12th of April to Wednesday the 17th of April, 2024
(close to Lisbon)
ABOUT THE RETREAT
As the snow melts away and flowers begin to bloom, Spring awakens a vibrant, warm, and revitalizing energy within us. Nature sheds its winter coat, and we too feel the call to let go of the heaviness we may have carried during the colder months. Like blossoms unfurling, we invite you to open your heart, mind, and body to the warmth and renewed vitality of spring. What better way to do this than with a rejuvenating yoga trip in the beautiful warmth of Portugal?
This retreat offers a unique opportunity to align yourself with the rising energy of Spring and cultivate personal growth, just as nature cultivates its own growth during this transformative season. Through invigorating yoga practices, uplifting movement meditations, inspiring workshops, nourishing massages, and intuitive journaling, we will awaken the dormant blooming energy within. Together, we will open up to the rising sun and revive our energy, carrying this renewed spirit with us long after the retreat ends.
