Discover your greatest vitality

So many people are telling us that the non-stop demanding pace of life is more and more draining. The digitisation of our day means we do most things on a machine, from scanning our social media and emails to checking the traffic. Our mind is ‘always on’, and we tend to allow ourselves very little time to replenish, restore, and rejuvenate the body and rest the mind; the things we need to feel in balance, and at peace within ourselves.

It’s with this reality in mind that we have designed this yoga and meditation retreat around the theme of lifting your energy. We are seeing more and more healthy people in need of the space, tools, and understanding to manage their energy within this demanding pace of life.

India-born Daddu grew up among the ancient ashrams of Varanasi, the spiritual heart of India, having intimate conversations with monks and yogis throughout his life and is working with Jennifer, a yoga teacher who spent 11 years in China and has also studied Tai Qi and Qi Gong. Together they have distilled down this knowledge into an easy to follow practice to create and sustain energy and would like to share it through a yoga and meditation retreat aimed to leave you feeling lifted and vitalised and able to take this new found energy home with you to continue your practice.

It's our aim to help you reconnect to your natural energy sources

Energy is your life source, it makes you feel alive, light, beautiful, powerful, creative, loving, generous, clear-minded, motivated and joyful when you have a lot of it.

But when your energy is depleted and low, it can lower your mood, diminish your sleep quality, creative power, confidence, the ability to love and be loved, and reduces your ability to respond positively to the up’s and down’s of the world around you.

In short, with balanced high energy everything flows more easily, your life takes on a more stable natural aspect, and you are powerful and open to more happiness, pleasure, and joy.

Of course, your energy naturally ebbs and flows, however, when you understand the key principles and put these principles into your yoga practice and incorporate them into your everyday, you will discover the enormous amount of control you have to regulate your energy keeping you in a stronger, more calm, happy, joyful state more often and more consistently.

In our yoga retreat we would like to share with you these principles and our approach for cultivating your centre point, otherwise known as your ‘zero point’; this is your place of calm and peace, of objectivity, and the basis for all your strength and power. Your ‘centre-point’ is your gateway or springboard to more contentment and balance.

Our specially designed yoga and meditation will explore these key energy principles each day through yoga sequences using a combination of different yoga styles. It is important to us that you don’t just have a nourishing, restorative yoga retreat filled with beauty and delicious natural, whole food, by the beach, but that we empower you with the simplicity of these principles, and put them into practice throughout the week so that you can take this new found feeling home with you and continue your practice. Prepare to leave behind struggle and effort, and say hello to more ease, lightness, and joy.

Our retreat offers:

  • A uniquely designed yoga practice aimed at nourishing and sustaining your energy.

  • An enchanting, natural setting with ocean views and swimming pool

  • Nourishment of self to relax, restore, and recharge

  • Delicious, healthy vegetarian cuisine to leave you feeling great

  • An opportunity to learn something new that will bring a new perspective and experience to your daily life

Come and enjoy indoor and outdoor yoga with us, by the pool, in the grass, and on the beach!

    4. You are all set! Book your flights to Faro and you are good to go!

    What are the exact dates, including check in and check out times:

    The retreat runs from dinner on Saturday the 30th of September to breakfast on Friday the 6th of October. All your meals will be included during this time. You are welcome to arrive early, or stay later on both the start and ending dates. Check out is at 10:00am on Friday, however, you are welcome to leave your belongings with reception and spend the day at the beach or by the pool until your flight.

    Can I arrive early or stay longer at the same venue?

    Yes, this is possible, at an additional cost. Please let us know and we can check room availability.

    How do I get there?

    The closest airport is Faro, Portugal. Most low cost airlines fly here including Ryanair, Easyjet, and Norwegian Airlines, as well as bigger airlines like BA.

    The retreat venue is a 20 minute taxi ride from the Faro airport. We can book a local taxi for you which is cheaper than the airport taxis, and help you arrange a shared taxi if multiple people are coming on the same flight.

    What if I haven’t practiced yoga in a while / or if I am quite advanced?

    Our yoga classes are designed for all levels. We suggest if you are a complete beginner you take some classes before coming to familiarise yourself with the basics.

    If you are an advanced practitioner, you will be offered alternative asanas for your level. However, it is our belief that yoga is about creating a connection between the body and mind, and we do this by creating an optimal flow for your level, and not by pushing the body into positions it is not designed or ready for. We will have both dynamic flow classes and slower classes, depending on the time of day, and day of the week, and the energy theme we are working with. This class is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of energy and how to ‘feel’ this energy throughout your practice.

    What if I need to cancel ?

    Cancellations more than three months before the start of the retreat will be 100% refund. Two months before the start of the retreat will offer 50% refund. And any cancellations less than one month before the start of the retreat will be no refund. However, you can transfer the deposit at any time to another person, at no charge.

    Where is the retreat?

    The retreat is located just above the historic town of Loule, in the Algarve, of southern Portugal, one of the most desirable and sought after stretches of beaches in all of Portugal. The closest larger town is Faro, also the nearest airport.

    Our centre is located in the quiet, gently rolling hills above the beaches, about a 20 minute drive from both the beach, and the airport. It is a 25 minute walk to Loule, through beautiful quiet country lanes. And there are multiple country walks straight from the retreat centre. The facilities include a beautifully appointed swimming pool, grassy areas and chill out areas with a beautiful view over the Portuguese countryside.
