Body of Water
Sunday 24th September | 10am - 6pm
Join Paula Andréewitch and Fern Trelfa for an enchanting day retreat amidst the serene Sintra Forest.
Paula and Fern's unique collaboration will weave an immersive day of explorations into our fluid systems, discovering how a heightened awareness of our inner body of water supports our movement practice and unlocks pathways for understanding our own personal boundaries and principles.
Throughout the day, we will engage in a rich offering of diverse practices allowing our bodies to guide us on an insightful journey of self-discovery.
Through somatic yoga, sacred dance, authentic relating, therapeutic sound and deep rest, we will connect with the innate wisdom of our body of water and explore how this wisdom can inspire us in life.
We will journey through three 2hour practices over our day together and offer space for lunch in the forest.
10 -12pm: Somatic Yoga with Paula, exploring the intelligence of our cellular fluids
1245 - 1445: Embodied Boundaries with Fern, working with somatics, dance and self enquiry.
1600 - 1800: Integrative Rest and Sacred Sound from Paula & Fern
This will be delicious day full of embodied exploration, growth and simple ease of being. We hope you will join us.
Where is this retreat?
We are delighted to be back at the glorious Floresta Encantada in Sintra. Nestled in the forest of Sintra, our day retreat has the luxury of being within the heart of nature whilst also being within close proximity to Lisbon. The train station is a short walk away or we are just a 40 min drive.
The studio space is professional, with a wooden floor, great sound system and all the cosy blankets and props we need.
We have use of the kitchen where our chef will cook for us if you choose, or you are welcome to bring your own food and use the fridge.
We are excited to be back!
About Paula & Fern
Having first met as yoga teachers within the London community, Paula and Fern later became good friends who share a love for the somatic realms of yoga and movement practice. With a collective pot of twenty five years teaching experience, they are both delighted to be coming together for this unique collaboration.
Paula's practice and teaching integrates movement practices, philosophical teachings, chanting, and breath awareness. The focus is on process over destination, retrieving intuition and feeling, and honouring the exquisite intelligence of the body. She's interested in how practice can help us notice the interconnectedness within all things, and remember ourselves as inherently well made, whole and enough.
Fern's practice and teaching is about honouring our bodies as miraculous vessels of life that are longing to be felt and embraced. Through poetic journeys of embodied discovery, her hope is for students to access deeper truths, authentic movement and bring greater harmony to our beingness. She offers an integrated approach to healing and growth with a love for the beauty of yoga as her root practice.
