A very special place
Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo, at São Jorge Island, is a unique and remote place on earth. We invite you to merge with the natural elements in its most pure state, inspiring you to be able to connect with your true nature.
Simple daily living
We will start our days meditating and combining the sound of our breath with natural sounds calming our minds. Through the practice of Ashtanga Yoga, in its most traditional form, taking care of each student according to their rhythm and capacity.
Deep guided yoga nidras will take us deeper on relaxation pervading all layers of our being.
Later in the day, before dinner, we gather for sessions concerning the philosophical tradition of yoga and how to apply it to our daily practice and lives, questions and answers, complemented by the traditional chanting of the yoga sutras or simple indian bhajans that touch our soul with the vibration of sound.
Note: retreat activities will start in the late afternoon of the 23rd June and end after the morning practice and breakfast of the 1st July. If you need the detailed program of the retreat let us know.
Accommodation will take place in Caldeira Guesthouse Surf Camp and on another beautiful house nearby, typical stone made houses of the Azores. The interiors are simple but comfortable, with the majority of the rooms to be shared and single sex. Double rooms for couples are also a possibility.
About nutrition, given the remote character of this place, sometimes the cook has to use what the ocean has to offer, but an egg-lacto-vegetarian option will be always available, as well as fresh fruit.
