madeira 2024


Palheiro Nature Estate

31st October – 6th November 2024

Join Kerry Flower, from Together We Breathe, and I for a wonderful six night retreat in Madeira.


Located off the coast of Portugal, Madeira is a mystical place of harmony and healing, one for discovering nature and oneself. Known as the 'Floating Garden in the Atlantic', it is famous for it's natural beauty. A vibrant green island with beautiful vistas, microclimates that bring a surprising range of flora, and ample hiking opportunities (optional of course!)


The retreat will be held at the luxurious family-owned Casa Velha do Palheiro hotel, at the renowned Palheiro Nature Estate. Nestled amidst tranquil gardens and stunning landscapes, Palheiro offers a serene sanctuary for rejuvenation and self-exploration, and the hotel provides excellent service.

The hotel's restaurant offers one of the best dining experiences on the island, with a focus on sustainability through the use of seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers. Indulge in a unique culinary experience that combines health-driven organic food with the highest quality locally sourced produce.


Wellbeing and connection off the mat

Beyond the yoga sessions, attendees can take advantage of a variety of wellness offerings, including transformational breathwork, mindfulness workshops, and journalling sessions delivered by Kerry Flower of Together We Breathe.

Stroll around the renowned Palheiro gardens (or take a tour with the head gardener), or hike, run, or cycle the 150 hectare Palheiro Nature Estate. Enjoy the chic Palheiro Spa, with outdoor and indoor pools, as well as holistic treatments based on the five elements. Golf, tennis, or horseriding are all on offer at the Estate, as well as an onsite gym. Beyond the Estate, vibrant Funchal centre is a 15 minute shuttle away, whilst a unique way to explore the island is to hike the small irrigation channels or levadas.

"I went to Mexico and Sri Lanka with my husband for 2 incredible yoga retreats with Erin. They too, like her classes, were impeccably planned and a source of relaxation and abundance of laughs! She is serious about yoga, and about carrying on and doing justice to this 5000 year old practice. I feel unbelievably lucky to have found her and will continue to learn from her as long as she teaches.”
