About this event

KUAN YIN QIGONG was created by Anamarta with fifteen years of refinement and the belief of more than 5000 years of refinement of the Qigong itself, this internal martial art focuses on health that reflects on all levels of one’s being, cultivating the qi/chi/energy, developing inner strength.

Besides grounding and being centered in your power, Kuan Yin Qigong offers gentle, but profound exercises for the whole body, including the pelvis, the cultivation of hormonal balance, and addressing specific women’s needs for radiant health, vitality and rejuvenation.


There are no specific pre-requisites for Level 1 training besides an interest in Kuan Yin Qigong. No experience is necessary.

If you want to learn something new, develop, evolve and/or master your Qigong practice, and take it as a Health and Self-Healing Retreat in your Tao (Way) of Feminine Empowerment. Or this + you would like to become a teacher, getting a recognised qualification. This is for you!


An amazing venue in the middle of the vineyards, in the lovely countryside of Ponte Lima, this historic village in the North of PORTUGAL, with delicious food prepared by our in-house chefs.


​The Teacher Training is an intensive 7-Day Immersion program. Whatever your standard of Qigong, this Training will improve it, whether or not you decide to go for your Instructor qualification. So you can tailor your own aims accordingly:

*** To attain a level of certification to teach Kuan Yin Qigong.

*** And/or:

To enjoy a week of intensive learning, meeting like-minded people, making new friends, and laying a solid foundation for future certification.

The Kuan Yin Qigong Teacher Training Retreat was such a deeply empowering experience on so many levels.  A profound layering of integrating deeper knowledge and unfolding the confidence to share the powerful and heart centered work of Kuan Yin Qigong.  Anamarta’s teaching was full of clarity,  deep knowledge, insight and encouragement.  My confidence to step into leadership has grown hugely and the experience of being in such a beautiful environment made it a focused but deeply nourishing and healing experience.  Everything from the nature to the accommodation through to the food was of the highest quality and would highly recommend the experience without hesitation.

The training was very well structured and organised. The atmosphere was safe allowing you to be vulnerable but demonstrate your strength when needed. The number of participants was great. It has already helped me to bring structure to my days commit to goals and re-prioritise my practices.

Anamarta teaching is well balanced with encouragement and critical feedback to understand the practice and reach your best. Everyone was respected for their own physical ability. All were given a chance to improve.

The food was beautifully prepared and made with love. Thank you to the chefs. The accommodation was perfect.

Thank you so much for your authenticity, style, knowledge, commitment and nurturing. Your family are beautiful thank you for sharing them with us.

Firstly a huge thank you for such an amazing week!

I feel fitter, and thinner and my body feels more flexible too. It won't just be the exercise, I experienced an inner journey too around feeling good enough and comparing myself to others. I overcame a lot!

I'm determined to keep up the daily practice and I really think it'll bring 'a flexible body, a flexible mind!) I'm even being careful about what food I put into my body. I'm really feeling like continuing to nurture myself. Some of my friends and neighbours have expressed an interest in learning so I may do some classes.

I found the instruction really helpful and felt confident because your knowledge and practice are to such a high standard. I felt nurtured and that you also always had time for me too. It really shows that you 'live' this practice and that is very inspiring and makes us want to learn more.

Absolutely fabulous place! I loved being able to swim in the breaks...

The food was amazing! Prepared with such love. We were so well looked after! A huge thank you for that. Your mum and auntie worked so hard! I have so much gratitude for that as well and felt nurtured on the inside eating all that gorgeous food!

Many, many thanks for such a wonderful experience, Anamarta!

The retreat was a wonderfully rich time in an amazing and exquisite place, I liked it very much.

It was an opportunity for me to integrate fully all the beauty and the wisdom of this ancient practice.

It will reinforce my immune system, and rejuvenate my body. It is also an opportunity for me to give to the community where I live beautiful tools to keep going through the uncertain times we are facing.

Anamarta is a great teacher and very compassionate. She is able to transmit her beautiful skills, knowledge and wisdom she has been honouring for many years in a very kind and firm way. She infuses her passion with a smile and a sense of humour.

Thanks to the chefs who were amazing and they fed us with much love and good food. I felt at home.

A big thank you Anamarta from my heart. I had one of the best holidays in my life while learning on your side and improving my health my presence and my life.

Pioneer of the Tao of Feminine Empowerment at the Jade Circle®, she has been sharing self-healing and self-mastery practices with thousands of women around the world since 2007.

Women experience her teachings as life-enhancing and for many life-changing.

Advanced Instructor from Tai Chi Union for Great Britain, and Taoist Master-Training from the Healing Tao UK.

Anamarta launched the Unique Kuan Yin Qigong Teacher Training Retreat for Women in 2019 which was a great success. In 2021 was another epic event, and we look forward to this Summer!

In 2020 she created an Online Re-TREAT due to the pandemic to give a taste of the Retreat.

After so many requests she created the Online Classes, a 7-week course + extra classes for the advanced level. Just a few Online Courses brought around 250 women from all over the globe.

Video of the 8 Pieces of Brocade with Feminine Awareness we cover in this course, gives you a sense of our beautiful venue.

It was intense, but beautiful, replenishing and healing. I have already used some of what I learned with my own clients (to help them to get out of their head and into their body), which has been powerful. But most importantly the retreat allowed ME to get out of my head and fully into my body for a full week. I’m now feeling fitter, slimmer and healthier and more energised than I have in years. The retreated has created strong momentum for me to continue to build this health and vitality through my own practice.

And what a wonderful group of women came together – so supportive, all unique, all so strong and powerful in their own way. Generous, compassionate and caring. We’ve created bonds and friendships that will last long beyond the retreat.

Powerful teaching, clear, direct – understanding everyone’s unique bodies and challenges. It is a gift to be able to hold a group AND each individual so well. The retreat design allows us to build a very strong personal practice, as well as teach others. Anamarta is both tough, and compassionate!

Magical, beautiful place, a haven from the world. Strong connection to nature, spacious, and such a treat to have a pool too. The food was nourishing to both body and soul, because it was served up with so much care by Anamarta’s Mother and Auntie. Many new recipes to try at home now!
