One of the biggest gifts you can offer yourself is the gift of health. Being on retreat is one of the best ways to be still, to listen and care for yourself…
‘All good things are wild and free.’ ~ Henry David Thoreau
This autumn, join us on a retreat into wildness. We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting a week in the Portuguese mountains in the most magical of retreat centres. It’s particularly special because this is where Jess retreats almost every year, and it’s also the place where she first stepped into the deeper forests of her yoga journey.
The setting for the peaceful and nurturing retreat that we have planned for you is a beautiful homestead set in a traditional Portuguese rural estate. This retreat is all about experiencing the inner wildness as well as the wildness around us. Explore the forest, or simply relax in the pergolas and hammocks that are dotted around the grounds. Open up all your forms of expressions through the opportunities you will have to draw, to write, to flow, to be still. Experience a salt-water pool with views of the surrounding valley and mountains; enjoy a country kitchen where the most delicious foods are prepared; take time to read in a cosy lounge in the rustic farmhouse; cuddle the retreat centre animals. All this helps create the most magical spot to retreat and recharge.
Our daily yoga practices will be Wild Flow and Yin Yoga. Wild Flow, the studio signature class at Wild Wolf’s, taught by both Kitty and Jess, will take place every morning, followed by morning silent time, enabling you to savour breakfast to the full whilst looking out over the surrounding mountains and valleys. Nourishing Yin Yoga in the evening will take us deep into our bodies and into the darkness and quiet of the mountain nights.
‘And into the forest I go. To lose my mind and find my soul.’
