Seasonal Yoga Detox Retreats - 2019
More and more, my intention is to live in tune to the cycles of nature and to the seasons. Our bodies and minds naturally respond to these cycles and rhythms and I design my retreats to honour this sacred flow.
Summer Yoga &Juice Fasting Detox Retreat - May 5-11
For my 2019 juice detox retreat, I have chosen a smaller, more intimate venue than usual to try something a bit different. Personally, I like a retreat to feel like home away from home, where we can all relax and hold space for each others' journey.
I believe Alma Verde does just this. It provides comfort, warmth (in case of chilly weather - although May is almost certain to be warm and sunny), a swimming pool and is situated in the South of Portugal, near the beautiful beaches of Burgau, Luz and Salema. With only 6 beds, the maximum number of participants is 6 - unless couples / friends who are happy to share a double bed, book, in which case it could be 8 participants. The villa has two single rooms with double beds and two twin rooms. 3 of the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and one of the rooms has a bathroom next door to it.
It is a juice fast detox retreat which can help you lose weight, boost your energy levels and get you back on track with healthy eating. The Yoga and meditation practice are both calming for the mind and energising for the body - restoring you to a state of vitality and optimal health. It can be life changing too.
Sunday - Alkalising food detox dinner
Monday - Friday - Juice fast
Saturday - Alkalising breakfast
There is the option to do daily enemas and a liver flush on the middle day.
In between yoga classes and juices, you can choose to explore the surrounding area, walk / cycle to the beach, lie by the pool or have a nap. Treatments are available during the free time.
The closest airport is Faro. The venue is about 60 minutes drive from Faro. Transfers are not included in the cost, but I can help you arrange a taxi if you like, and can also link guests up with each other to share the taxi if travel times are similar. You could also rent a car, catch a bus / train. Transfers cost about €85 each way - cost to be confirmed at time of booking.
How to book:
To secure a booking I ask for a 50% deposit, payable by pay-pal or bank transfer. The balance is due the week before the retreat.
Single, en-suite: €1450
