4 Day New Moon Yoga Retreat for Women in Porto Santo Island

Quintinha das Lombas, Lombas, 9400-065 Lombas, Porto Santo, Portugal

Yoga Retreat in Portugal

New moon rises to bring women together in a circle, friendship, and trust. It's a national holiday in Portugal, Portugal’s day, and it’s also a new moon! The moon it’s a universal symbol of femininity, passiveness, fertility, frequency, and renovation. It’s also water, earth and represents Yin energy (feminine) that opposes Yang (masculine) which is represented by the sun, active energy.

The house has 5 rooms, 2 double beds, 2 rooms with double beds and 3 rooms with twin beds, 5 bathrooms. It’s possible to add 2 extra beds that are as comfortable as the others and the rooms are very big, so there is enough space to fit them. It's a family house, so all the rooms are comfortable, simple, and spacious, 4 of them with private bathrooms.

Program

The moon brings the end of a cycleath the entrance of a new one, it’s time for new beginnings, it's a propitious phase for new projects, changes, and realizations. And like the moon that, in this phase, it’s not visible as she doesn’t get light of the Sun because of the alignment with the sun and earth, Freddie's decided to organize a retreat just for women so that together and hiding you can set your intentions to the universe and, through yoga and sharing, you feel more united, feminine, connected to each one, with nature and with each self.

And so the water element is strong in this connection, you are going to Porto Santo, to clean the soul in the sea and get the heat of the sun in your skin to balance the Yin and the Yang in each one of you.

  • The yoga classes are dynamics in the mornings, also with pranayama and meditation with a theme;
  • Note to self is a journaling practice for more grounding and introspective after the morning practices, before breakfast;
  • There is plenty of time for relaxing at the beach, or go for a walk either in town or at the beach or just stay home a chill at the hammock with a book;
  • The evening yoga classes are softer, to prepare for the evening activity after dinner, all meant to release, connect and enjoy the moment.

Retreat location

The house is located in Sítio das Lombas just 10 minutes from the fantastic and golden beach of Porto Santo and 15 minutes from the city center. It has 10000 m2 of land and offers a beautiful sea and mountain view. You can walk to the beach, the airport is about 5m by car and the ferry is around 10 minutes by car.

Porto Santo is a small island close to Madeira, out there in the Atlantic Ocean, Its name means Saint Port because it saved the Portuguese sailor's life, that was exploring the coast of Africa but this storm almost killed if it wasn’t for Porto Santo Island.

It’s a peaceful land, 9 km of golden sand beach, actually healing sands. Everything is this island is calm, relaxed, super slow, the best atmosphere for a new moon ceremony and gathering of women, working its feminine side.

It’s also very special to Freddie, she spent all my summers there, she learns how to walk, so she knows this island is perfect for this retreat.

Food

Yummy, nutritious homemade vegetarian food, cooked by Freddie and her sister, who is a professional chef. In the morning, normally porridges, fruits, snacks for the day at the beach and a light dinner including either soups, vegetables, salads.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

With COVID restrictions, Yoga with Freddie is not sure how many flights exist directly from Europe to Porto Santo. Maybe one or two per week from mainland Portugal, but there is a daily fairy boat from Madeira island, so you can travel to Madeira first and then take the boat. Or fly from Madeira to Porto Santo. Yoga with Freddie can arrange a pick-up from both places of arrival. Yoga with Freddie guesses it's cheaper to come by boat (60 EUR both ways) than to take the plane.

Airport: Porto Santo Airport Airport transfer available: Porto Santo Airport (US$12 per person) Additional charges may apply. You can request this in the next step.
