Wellness Retreat 2018 Portugal
June 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Monte Velho Eco Resort, Algarve Portugal
An exciting programme of learning from which you can design your own agenda. Choose from, Yoga, the contemporary martial art of Washindo and Mindfulness Meditation
Sunday 24th-30th June 2018
This wellbeing retreat brings together these exciting disciplines, each blending perfectly with the other, while adding their unique benefits to maximise learning and impact. These compelling arts share the goal of a fully present, tension-free body that uses energy wisely and efficiently. Combined, they help us embody the wisdom available in our mind, body and spirit, greatly enhancing our wellbeing and bringing presence to our actions. From relaxation emerges grace & potential.
Integrating body and mind, yoga improves flexibility, balance, strength and awareness. It is about becoming quietly observant and using the movement of the body to access the calming of the mind. The movement instigated through the stretches, twists, bends and balances helps to move stagnant, fluid, stuck energy and bogged down mind processes.
Washindo the Peaceful Way
Developed from the wisdom of multiple traditional martial arts, Washindo offers a contemporary practice that encourages elegant, free flowing, natural movement and enhances relationships with self and others. Accessible to everyone to explore the joy of movement, increase positive energy and awaken possibility. Developing & defending the life you want to live.
Mindfulness Meditation & Walking
Is about achieving peace with yourself, allowing your body and mind to work together harmoniously which is the foundation of health. Spending time in the present allows you to break from unhelpful, energy-sapping habits and gives you the freedom to be fully engaged in being you.
Each day there will be 2 Yoga classes, 2 Washindo Classes and 1 Mindfulness Meditation session. You can choose just to take part in one of the arts, mix and match them or do them all. They are organised so you will still have plenty time during the day to relax and enjoy the beautiful environment.
