Yoga Retreat in Portugal 4th-9th September 2018

IMG_3459This yoga retreat is open to everyone but is an ideal for people who are looking to get away to work on a creative or academic or work project alongside but not necessarily with others in a supportive environment.

 

There will be two yoga sessions a day – the morning session will include an hour of pranayama with a specific focus on how the breath can be integrated into different asanas for a more embodied experience and some restorative supported asanas again to explore breath and asana for meditation.

 

The evening sessions will be workshops looking at standing postures, seated twists and forward folds, backbends and inversions.

 

The yoga practice will help to develop and improve  study mode which is a very grounded way of working and will help to improve concentration, creativity and objectivity.

The Venue

The Beekeepers has been set up by London based artists Tom Leamon and Jennifer MT White and Portuguese artist Pedro Leitao.

 The Beekeepers was born from a desire to create a more intimate working relationship with nature. By consolidating their diverse skills in the arts, education and construction they are creating alternative outdoor studio spaces that are embedded within the landscape.

The Beekeepers seek to provide the tools and working environment to enable you to experience a new creative home. The land is scattered with multi functional decks serving as platforms to any artistic and therapeutic needs. Furniture is positioned in nature, you may find a hammock, armchair or writing desk as you walk the land
