Wellness Retreat 2019 Portugal
July 14 @ 4:00 pm - July 20 @ 10:00 am
Monte Velho Eco Resort, Algarve Portugal
An exciting and comprehensive programme of learning designed to enhance your wellbeing – mind, body and spirit. This retreat provides a choice of daily practices and workshops with Master Teachers that are open to all. Practices include Yoga, the contemporary martial art of Washindo (moving meditation) and Mindfulness Meditation
Sunday 14th– Saturday 20th July 2019
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. We will explore, discover and experience the pillars of wellbeing and how we can apply them to our lives.
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 a 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 of time to relax and enjoy the beautiful environment.

“A place where self-imposed limits and troubles can be left at the door and where a voice of deeper awareness whispers to us, inviting us to gently set aside those limits and embrace and awaken to possibility.” – Colin Reeve
