With Steffy White + a hand picked team of very special healers and helpers

I AM INVITING YOU!

Island trips,  exciting colourful food, a White Light Yoga home like no other, deep connections, enlivening yoga and meditation practices, sound healing, cooking AND yoga workshops.  This will be a truly life affirming trip to connect back to the most authentic you, all set under the warm glow of Portuguese September sun.

       

THEME

It fills me with so much excitement to bring you this amazing retreat.  I have been working on this one for a while, tweaking the details to make it an experience you will never forget!  Here you go my loves, I cannot wait already!….

For those of you who have been in my classes recently, you will know that I have been emphasising the importance of slowing down and connecting to what is real, deep within you.   To move with intuition and integrity and to allow your yoga practice to be an opportunity to really tune in, to really connect to yourself again, away from the push and pull and competitions that society can bring.  Through a liberating, playful and connection based yoga practice, I hope you will leave this retreat with a greater sense of purpose, a connection to yourself that might have been wavering and a real found confidence in your abilities.  A knowing that YOU ARE ENOUGH!  Just as you are.

OUR HOME

Our White Light Yoga home will be our very own secret hideaway in the heart of town – hidden from the world, yet a world of its own offering serenity and space, privacy and perfect peace.  Olhao is an ancient fishing village. AUTHENTIC, rugged and full of charm.  Filled with colour, warmth and character; and stunning, unspoiled islands just off its coast. An exceptional discovery for the adventurous and intrepid traveller.

Trips to the islands are wonderful and very easy.  From our home it is just a 10min walk to the waterfront where you can catch a ferry or river taxi to the islands – trip takes 10ish minutes depending on the island you go to. With Armona, Culatra, Farol and Deserta islands all very close there is so much choice. each with a slightly different vibe.

FOOD

Food, for me is one of life’s biggest pleasures so on my retreats, food, nourishment, a little indulgence and a lot of enjoyment is very important.

In 2017 I am incredibly lucky to be working with Something from Sarah at the majority of my retreats.

Originally from Australia, where a love of fresh food and the outdoors is deeply embedded in the country’s culture, Sarah is known for her creative and inspired approach to health-focused cooking, and her calm, dynamic and organised persona.

Sarah has more than 10 years experience as a Personal Chef, with extensive experience working alongside Cast Personal Trainers and Nutritional Advisors and PA’s to create highly bespoke menu plans to achieve desired results
