HEALING WITH THE ELEMENTS

YOGA, SURF AND SOUND HEALING  RETREAT

02-08 SEPTEMBER 2018

PORTUGAL

Back to your most authentic self

Join Catarina for a unique experience at Vida Pura with yoga twice a day, surf, sound healing, nourishing food and beautiful accommodation surrounded by nature under the Portuguese sun.

Closer to nature, closer to our roots and true essence.

A 7 day journey that will open a door that we walk through, to never be the same again.

 

Peeling the layers of noise we have been accumulating in our lives, through the lens of the 4 basic elements - Fire, Water, Earth and Air - we will be unlocking and opening your body and mind to the intuitive healing it needs, so we find our most authentic self. 

 

Each day of this journey is related to an element in the Mayan calendar. We will base our yoga practice on the element of the day, synchronising ourselves with the rhythms of the universe.

Starting with an energising dynamic yoga practice (Mandala Vinyasa or Rocket) and finish with calming Yin Yoga and Meditation lead by Catarina Ferreira.
