MAKE SPACE RETREAT 

APRIL 11th-17th 2019

TULUM, MEXICO

CONTACT CATMEFFANYOGA@GMAIL.COM TO BOOK

I’m so excited to bring this retreat with you! After wanting to take my retreats further afield, Tulum is somewhere that has been calling my soul and I want to have a group of inspiring, like-minded humans with me as we explore both ourselves and the space around us.

OUR HOME

We will be setting up camp (not actual camping!), for six nights on Tulum beach in a beautiful, rustic eco-friendly resort. Unlike my other retreats whereby we have a house to ourselves, we will be sharing the space with other people, but our practices will be extremely private and sacred and our meal times will be together, unless you fancy exploring to local area for dinner time. Tulum is buzzy, there are things to do and see, so I hugely recommend coming with not only your swimwear and yoga wear, but also some trainers as I’d love to take you all on a little adventure to the historic ruins one day.

There are different levels when it comes to the rooms (as you’ll see below) and of course the price is reflective of how plush the room is or the view the room has.

Check in is at 3pm on April 11th and check out at 12pm on April 17th.

THE YOGA

During our time together we will practice twice a day, both dynamic and restorative yoga, along with daily meditation, pranayama and an inversion workshop. This retreat is aimed at all levels including beginners, but I would recommend that if you’re a beginner, you start up some regular yoga classes between now and the retreat starting. The theme for our retreat is “Make Space”, allowing our true life-force to come forwards as we open up both the body and mind, allowing vulnerability to flow and space to be created in the body. Along with possibly a few tears along the way, there will be so much laughter and we’ll create incredible memories.

THE FOOD

We will be enjoying three colourful, fresh, vegan meals each day*, which are included in the package. *There will be one dinner not included, as we will be going out to enjoy the local area. I have been assured by the wonderful resort owners that there are some great restaurants and cafes nearby, so should you wish to venture out more than once, you can of course do that. I do not serve alcohol on my retreats, however if you wish you leave the resort for a tipple, then you’re more than welcome to do so.

FIND YOUR FLOW RETREAT

16TH-21ST MAY 2019 

OLHAO, PORTUGAL

CONTACT CATMEFFANYOGA@GMAIL.COM TO BOOK

casa fuzetta

Set in the small fishing town of Olhao in Portugal, our home for five nights, Casa Fuzetta, has been recently refurbished to not only highlight the charm of the area, but to bring a little slice of luxury into your stay. Full of hidden hooks and beautiful old features, the house is a truly magical place for all who stay there.

The rooftop area will allow us the perfect space to practice and for you to further your yoga journey. And it will of course provide space for lots of relaxing under the sun and an amazing dining area for our big brunches and dinner.

FOOD

This is a huge part of any retreat and something I have put a lot of time into planning. I will be partnering with the awesome Marcin Ksiazka (previously head chef at Farm Girl Cafe & ex-chef at Grace Belgravia), for this retreat. Together we have designed a menu that we think you’ll love. Bringing you a fully vegan menu, it’s all set to be incredibly yummy. We can of course cater to any dietary requirements.

THE AREA

The area of Olhao is absolutely stunning, so there will be many opportunities for us to venture out as a group or for you to go and explore alone. As part of the package I have arranged a trip to one of the small islands for us, where we’ll relax on the beach and swim in the sea. There are also many eateries around in case you fancy eating out for lunch or dinner.

On the Saturday, the local market is highly recommended.

TESTIMONIALS

“Honestly this was the most incredible, incredible experience. I walked away with it with an open heart, a new-found passion for yoga, renewed energy and a bunch of friends. It was the first time I really understood the power of the practice and meditation and I’ve been trying to stick with it as much as possible.

“I cannot thank you enough for the week we have just had in the most stunning house. I always knew the yoga was going to be great and there was going to be a great energy around you, however I could never have imagined just how much it made an impact on me.”

“The food rocked, the venue rocked and the yoga rocked. I literally cannot think of anything I would like to change.”casa 2
