Embrace your soul
Retreat

Madeira (Portugal)

When three soul sisters meet around the world to spread harmony, health, joy and powerful energies to those who want to embrace all of this, Silvia Shiva, Sarah Stuart & Yoga Lena do Mar are pleased to present the new retreat in Madeira.

EMBRACE YOUR SOUL with Silvia Shiva, Sarah Stuart & Yoga Lena do Mar

Join us as we support and guide you through a week of self-healing and self-nurturing in magical Madeira.

Madeira is an island full of abundance- from the mountain peaks to the deep blue ocean, from the colorful fruits to vibrant flowers. Here we can observe so much outer beauty everywhere we go, so in this journey we want to use that as encouragement to turn inward to observe, respect, and love our own inner beauty. Being in retreat allows us to fully immerse ourselves in the present and is a unique time to reconnect with our breath, body, and intentions, and to let go of what is not serving us anymore. This time is for you to relax, learn, and to re-discover and embrace who you are. 

During this retreat we offer diverse yoga styles, types of workshops and experiences that will allow you to learn and try new things, activate creativity, connect with others, and turn inwards.

When:

Sept 9 - 16**

** For a better settlement you can arrange your arrival the day before, we can support you and provide to book the room for an extra night.

PROGRAM

The retreat is a health and wellbeing concept holiday package in the quiet seaside town of Canico do Baixo, East of Funchal. We offer guests from all over the world a relaxing retreat experience. We offer an approach to health and wellbeing starting your day with a morning practice outside and enjoy a healthy breakfast after the practice.

Later you can decide to join in on one of the diverse and fun workshops, taking a walk, relax on your sunbed with a good book, or feel comfortable in the warm water of the jacuzzi. At the end of the day, you will enjoy a Yin Yoga alternating with a Restorative Yoga class and meditation experience.

The week is designed so you can do as much or as little as you want, ensuring that your time is truly used to your benefit. Find your inner peace during your stay and leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, energized, and more present.

Yoga is a core part of our program, and we cater to beginners as well as intermediate level practitioners. Studies have proven yoga to be one of the best ways to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and relieve symptoms such as insomnia, depression and anxiety, and boost the immune system and mood. Yoga also helps to improve overall fitness, strength, and flexibility. 

YOGA PRACTICE

There are 2 yoga experiences every day during your stay.

If you are new to yoga this is a great opportunity to begin your journey! The purpose of yoga is to help you find balance, strength, flexibility and peace within. Yoga allows you to learn and use the body in specific ways, which in turn helps the mind relax and calm down. The yoga classes are held outdoors or in the yoga room.
