About the venue
Our retreat venue is the friendly Fazendinha in the Eastern Algarve. It is 40 a minute drive from Faro airport and situated 8 kilometres from the beautiful historic town of Tavira and the island which boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the Ria Formosa national park.
Fazendinha offers simple typical Portuguese accommodation. With twin rooms (single occupancy available upon request at extra cost). It is set among orange groves in a peaceful off road location. It has an outdoor terrace and pool, BBQ area and pretty gardens.
A typical day on the retreat will start with fruit and drinks before our 8.30am morning slow flow yoga class around the pool. This will be followed by a delicious lovingly prepared brunch from locally sourced produce….all food will be vegetarian and vegan. We promise you won’t go hungry!
During the day there will be various activities arranged, a day trip to Tavira, guided walks, mandala painting, cookery demos. Or you are welcome to just experience the most valuable thing…your own stillness!

BWY Teacher & Wellness Advocate
".....over the past 35 years my love for yoga and healthy living has taken me on a wonderful journey, practicing and studying with teachers and students from a variety of lineages. I began practicing Iyengar Yoga with great determination and precision, which gave me a great foundation. I then became inspired by the gentle yet demanding approach pioneered by Vanda Scaravelli - this encouraged me to invite some softness into my yoga practice, which I continue to be very aware of today.
In 2001 I completed the BWY Teacher Training Diploma, followed by the Birthlight Foundation Course, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage - level 1 & 2 and a one week intensive Ayurvedic Massage course in Goa. I am currently expanding my knowledge studying with The Yoga Nidra Network, whilst deepening my own yoga practice with Kundalini Yoga."

From Goddess Liberation...
Facilitator, Artist & Certified Reiki practitioner
"I feel deeply connected to both Spirit and the Earth. Through harnessing the light from above into this Earthly plane I offer others the space to step into their wholeness.
I believe there is an Ancient Wisdom within us all..... A remembering that we are all connected on a much deeper level.
I am dedicated to helping others re-ignite this wisdom through coming together as a community and remembering the ways of our Ancestors.
My intention is to offer a held, safe space for others, in circle and one on one, to reconnect with the self, to transform and transmute energy ~ working holistically and as a channel to take people on their own inner healing journey."
