21st to 28th of December & 28th December to 4th of January £700 Per Person
Join Peter & Sue on retreat at the Yoga Evolution Retreat Center in central Portugal this Christmas and New Year
Why not celebrate the festive season this year on retreat with us here in Portugal where we will be eating healthy vegan & vegetarian dishes and practicing Evolutionary Yoga. We have been holding retreats at our centre, which is set in Six hectares of well cared for forest land for over Eleven years. Our centre is the perfect place to rebalance, refocus and dive deeply into your yoga practice. We also have several guided walks through the forest tracks with Peter or Sue during each week.
Peter & Sue are the founders of Evolutionary Yoga which is an integrated practice that brings together vinyasa & yin Yoga, Shamanism, Qigong, Mindfulness Meditation, Yin Yoga, Gong Healing and Astrology.
Experience our vinyasa flow style of practice that incorporates the elements and building beneficial practices to help open the body and mind.
On retreat we will be journeying to the sound of the shamanic drum which allows us to visit other dimensions that are not usually available in our normal day to day consciousness. We do use any form of plant medicine because the drum and spirt are all the medicine we need.
Learn proven ways of meditating to help calm the mind and allow yourself to deeply relax and be the witness of thoughts, emotions and sensations.
On the week we will learn the five animal qigong method as well as meridian qigong. These are very transformative practice that allow you to connect directly to your energy body and direct qi to where it is needed.
Gently release tension from the physical body and clear you’re meridian channels with our set sequences that massage the internal organs and clear any blockages. Yin yoga works on creating compression in the joints and tension on the connective tissue allows for our fascia to release and rejuvinate.
Learn about your astrological birth chart and what all of the planets and signs mean to you personally. No two charts are ever the same. We are not just one sun sign but all of the signs and all of the planets.
On the retreat Peter who is an advanced gong healing practitioner will bath you in planetary gongs that are tuned to planetary frequency’s. Gong baths reset the nervous system and enhance the immune system as well as allow you to relax deeply.
