Back to the Roots

Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Elemental Practices
26th September - 1st October 

A yoga and meditation retreat to remember the roots of our being in the mountains of Monchique. With Jana Toepfer, Maria Terra and Olga Sadowskiat at Wild Oasis a Boutique Retreat nested in the native forest of the mountains.

With optional individual sessions of Transformative Bodywork and Aura Readings

The time is now to wake up your inner power and work with our intuitive connection to nature in a way that serves our own path and inspires the community around us.

- With the support of the elements and nature

-with daily guided meditations

- by moving our bodies in hatha yoga and somatic movement practices

-by dancing your spirit free in a trance dance session

- by music and sound healings

-by being in community and sharing stories by the fire

- by learning techniques from Shamanic traditions (how to create sacred space, creativity & intuition workshops)

...we are going to empower ourselves and ignite our capacity to live our dreams.


"This retreat will be different from a normal yoga retreat. Our intention is to guide you to the creative roots of your being and unravel your unique voice that is dying to be expressed. Realigned to our authenticity and full potential, we then offer a field of exploration which we actively use to "try out" and express these gifts. This retreat will give you clarity and joy and strengthen you to be an inspiration to your communities and surroundings."
