Renew Yoga
Weekend Retreat

February, 4th-7th 2022

at Villa Epicurea in Setúbal region (45mins from Lisbon Airport)

The human body is a self-healing, self-renewing, self-cleansing organism. When the right conditions are created, vibrant well-being is its natural state. We have distanced ourselves from nature's natural laws and live under less than natural conditions. This retreat offers us the chance to Reset; to give our body the space and time to heal, renew & cleanse.

Join us for a weekend of detox & healing. We designed this retreat to offer you the chance to really dive into what holds you back, reset habitual patterns that don't align with you, unlock physical tightness and truly become aware of how you can live a more intentional life.

Amazing! But how? Joséphine and Sandra are combining their skills and knowledge to guide you through a detox, not just physical but on all levels of your being; mental, emotional & spiritual. We will look at what detoxification means on a physical level by understanding what goes on in the body and how we can foster better detoxification through correct diet, food combining, lifestyle habits and so on. Our Yoga practices will be aimed at encouraging better detox too, whether physically through specific asanas (postures) or emotionally, mentally and spiritually through working with the Chinese medicine meridians. 

Detoxification is getting rid of. Rid of the toxins, the unnecessary, the heavy, the clutter. We live in a culture that encourages constant excess, whether it is excess pollution, excess sugar, coffee, work but also excess purchasing, excess connection, excess stimulation. This constant excess leaves us feeling depleted, overwhelmed and empty. The aim of this retreat is to give you the tools to help guide you back to balance.

Joséphine is passionate about movement & natural healing. Her teaching style ranges from dynamic creative flows with a focus on postural integration to restorative yoga and mindfulness. She will lead the morning flows to connect us to our Yang energy (our "doer" energy), get us energised and encourage detox through specific asanas (postures) that promote blood circulation and good digestion. As a naturopath in training, she will also lead a workshop on detoxification and offer you tools on the subject.
Sandra's expertise and knowledge as a Yin Yoga teacher and Thai massage therapist will help you understand the link between your emotions and how they can manifest in your body. She will lead the Yin Yoga classes, working on specific meridians to foster detoxification and the processing of specific emotions. She will also teach a partner Thai massage workshop with acupressure techniques to encourage detox and to give you tools to practice self-massage or massaging your loved ones.
