Pure Yoga Retreat: LIVE LIFE, retreat from your world & into ours ....
Experience paradise on a desert island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This retreat takes place in Sal, Cabo Verde, where I have been living for the last 15 years. If you really want to retreat, rejuvenate, have a balance between people and time on your own, and feel perfectly content being a single traveler this is the place to be. Covid gave me a massive appreciation of where I live. There is no other place in the world I would rather have been than here. Ocean, beach, energetically friendly people, sun and the ability to constantly engage in life. All this and Yoga with me. An insanely happy person, with 16 years living yoga and over 1000 hours of training, this retreat is a gift!
I love yoga, it is magic. All you have to do is come to your mat 5 times a week and practice properly, and with knowledge of what you should be doing in your practice, and the rest will happen on its own.
With these retreats, my goal is to give people mini-teacher trainings, to help you understand how yoga works and how to come to your mat and engage in a full yoga practice which includes breathing, asanas (poses) and a meditation at the end. If you already self-practice, then these retreats will guide you to deepen and expand that practice. Because it is a small retreat, so the same 8 people for 7 days, we will be able to work with you to not only build a practice, but to also expose you to yoga that is not only for your muscles, but also for all your connective tissues, your organs, your brain, your central and peripheral nervous system, and your illusive mind.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
What an amazing and life changing experience it was to be part of a week long yoga retreat here in December. Thank you so much Sheena and Marta. You’re both utterly beautiful inside and out, superb teachers of yoga, and of how to live life in general. I can’t begin to describe what a wonderful time I had. From the “yoga with dogs” to the hilarious day in “Lizzy the truck”, it was all just perfect. Yoga massage with Marta was the best massage I’ve EVER had, and the Sound healing with Sheena was truly awesome.
Traveling solo, my stay on the island gave me time to rethink many things in my life, Marta and Sheena very much inspiring me to take action to change a few things for the better when I returned home.
I visited Sal for the first time in April 2019, and ended up staying two weeks instead of the one week I had booked. So this time I booked a one-way ticket! Loved it so much I stayed for four weeks :-), and only left because I had to go back home for work.... I really didn’t want to leave. I will be back! 🥰. Made lovely new friends that were on the retreat too. Hugs to you all x
Brilliant accommodation at Surfzone, I really felt as though I’d moved house! Rihan Uk
