Pebble Painting classes, Jam Sessions, Sweat & Swim, and even Salsa were some of the activities that happened during the second week of September, in Ponta do Sol. An example of this was the Bliss Yoga Retreat.
A retreat that happened on a magical day, surrounded by nature, gentle practices, whilst sharing smiles and energy at the Estalagem da Ponta do Sol.
The organizers of this event were Yamuna and Lindsay Barrett, who are both yoga teachers with years of experience. The yoga retreat begun with a yoga session with Yamuna, followed by a delicious homemade smoothie made by Lindsay, who also has a food blog called Ohquelinda.
The practice continued with Lindsay for vinyasa yoga and some acroyoga duo practices. A very fun morning around these practices, including Thai massage. A tasty lunch was prepared by Lindsay with healthy ingredients.
The second part of this retreat, offered two different experiences: “cacao ceremony” and ecstatic dance. It was a beautiful evening on the terrace of the hotel, with a breathtaking view of the ocean and the moon,
The people involved described this retreat as a day “full of happiness and good energy with the whole group”.
Lindsay and Yamuna helped everyone involved throughout the day. They organize various retreats and yoga classes, as they are also organizing a retreat in Porto Santo. If you want to learn more about Porto Santo, you can click here.
