Welcome to Water your Soul Retreat.
We invite you to immerse yourself into the depths of femininity by diving into the deep end of an adventure in the island of São Miguel, a verdant haven flourishing with botanicals and natural hot springs – a magic gem located in the middle of the Atlantic, in the archipelago of the Azores where Nature teaches us about abundance and love – That’s the beauty and the allure of the Azores – A PLACE TO HEAL..
The water element is responsible for our relationships, flexibility, sexuality, fertility, creativity, joy, and comfort. By using the Water element you can wash away all the past negative emotions, forgive your past experiences and learn to let go.
“Life is a great ocean of potential. We are sailing on this ocean and we are the captain of our own ship. In order to set our destination and to sail where we want to sail, we have to maintain our vessel in good condition, we need to know the workings of our ship, the workings of the tides, the currents, and the weather. So too must we know the workings of our mind in order to create and to live fully. ” — MICHAEL BIJKER

A Taste of your Adventure
YOGA and Nutricion by Catarina Rola:
Eating is about feeling, connection and awareness. The act of eating is unique to our survival, it teaches the way the body expresses itself, at the same time, it is a way of inner expression. Who we are and what, how and why we eat.
Catarina Rola is a nutritionist, expert on eating behavior and yoga instructor. Over the last few years, she has been developing the concept of My Integral Nutrition, a project that essentially aims to guide you towards a path of self-knowledge through food and movement.The main ingredient of her dishes is love and its combination with health, oriental philosophy and intercultural techniques, fruits of her learning and exploratory journeys.

Tânia Laje – Facilitator and Surf Coach
Humans are drawn to nature, and surfing is a sport that relies on Nature!
It is dependent on the waves, the timing of the day, and the ebb and flow of the tide.
Surfing creates the feeling of something greater than oneself, the power of the ocean, the vastness, and the scenery around us, which connects surfers to the Earth and each other.
There is a sense of healing that comes from the Ocean, from the salt water itself or the inner peace one feels while immersed in the vast blue sea.
We believe in the ocean’s natural therapeutic benefits, together with the practice of ridding the waves, provides not only overall fitness to the body as well as incredible happiness to each one of us.
Surfing is not only a sport but a connection with nature and oneself!
