Yoga and Permaculture Retreat
Rediscover your interconnectedness with nature, learn a new way of being in this world
3rd - 8th February 2021
@ Monte Velho retreat centre, Algarve, Portugal
Who is this retreat for?
This retreat is intended for all those who feel the need to reconnect to the rhythms of nature and learn how to live in tune with them. Through a combination of yoga, somatic movement, seminars and nature connection workshops you will be guided into a journey of reconnection to your sense of belonging to this planet. The daily embodied practices will serve as a container for us to experience some of the core themes of regenerative living and permaculture, which will then be expanded during our seminars and workshops.
The core themes we will explore during this retreat will be: remembering the language of nature, embodying the interconnectedness with everything around us, permaculture principles applied to outer and inner landscapes, how to embody the belonging to nature in our daily lives.
What to expect from this Yoga retreat?
What supports our life? How can we go back to be a part of this web of life and act in respect for all life on this planet? What does it mean to be interconnected with all things? What are simple acts that can help us live a regenerative life today? These and others will be the questions we will answer together during our journey.
The aim of this Yoga retreat is that you will leave feeling connected with the elements and empowered to take tangible steps towards a life in tune with nature, no matter what your lifestyle is today.
