Portugal ~ Expand Your Capacity
Dates to be announced SOON!!!
AWAKEN YOUR JOY, RECLAIM YOUR CENTER, EMBODY YOUR PURPOSE AND POWER
This is an invitation to embark on a powerful journey of self discovery and growth, as we decode and peel away the layers of conditioning which have kept our innate freedom locked away. Together we’ll reclaim ancient wisdom practices taught in a modern and relevant way, so we may each flourish authentically as the unique, powerful being that we are.
Join Nancy Goodfellow for a seven day yoga retreat to create a personal practice which honors our place within the cycles of the earth and nature herself. We will uncover ways to reclaim what has for too long been taken from us and rise up with presence, power and purpose. Nourish your body, replenish your well, and remember who your are beyond the demands of everyday life. Recharge amidst the beauty of Portugal and soak up the history and culture of this magical country.
Each day we’ll weave yoga, movement and meditation practices with the five elements of nature according to the great Tantric tradition . The flow of the week will be inspired and informed by nature's elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. Working with each one in our practices we will explore its energy and qualities within and around us, while building up our vessel on all levels: physical, mental and emotional. We will journey within and begin to release, redefine, and remember; coming home to our innate intuition and cultivating a sacred sense of empowerment, self-love, trust, vitality and authenticity as awakened, mindful beings having a fully embodied human experience.
