NORDIC SISTERS

FREEDOM.jpg

Nordic roots and Viking like spirit brought these sisters together. The spirit of: fighting for what’s in your heart, to follow your heart and to flow from it. With similar background in the performance and movement world Josie and Ida wanted to create a space and find a place where they could help others to connect and express their own inner Viking – to find the essence of inner power.

11-15 June 2020  


Be.Free W/ NORDIC SISTERS

Plug out from the matrix and plug in to yourself. Immerse yourself in the powerful duality of yin and yang yoga practise by the Nordic Sisters Ida & Josie. Ida will be teaching powerful vinyasa flows fused with the elements of animal flow and primal movement to wake you up in the mornings whilst Josephine guides you into the world of healing meditation and breath work with the evening yin practises.

Held in the beauty and rawness of Nature we will allow for an opening and softening to occur. All. By. Itself.

Whats it all about? 

Taking time OUT. 

Being in nature. Being with the mountains, the sun, the birds and the butterflies. Practicing yoga in a beautiful dome, experiencing the flower and food gardens (superb places to meditate btw), enjoying a perfectly balanced Ayurvedic smoothie, going to the beach, surfing,  exploring the  national park or simply just BEING;)

This retreat ran by Nordic Sisters gives you the opportunity to DISCONNECT (as much or as little as you like) to RECONNECT. In a world that usually dictates us to DO more in order to BE more to FEEL more... To accept ourself fully ...

WE all need a breathing space. 

This is your chance to come together with like minded people in the most beautiful of places; surrounded and held by the mountains and the clear blue sky we willl open up a space to ignite our passions and LOVE of life. Which has always been and will always be our birthright. 

Food:

Amazing plant-based meals for the entire stay. Access to refreshments in the dining area all day long! Eco Dharma is built on kindness for nature and all living beings. They operate a completely vegan site with delicious plant-based cuisine. They are strict about this and do not allow animal products to be consumed on site, however Eco Dharma offers wonderful alternatives aligned with their ethos. Their edible garden is being planted to bring the healthiest and most natural foods to our table for guests and the local community. The organic and biodynamic methods of farming they utilise can ensure that the guests are receiving the highest quality plant-based-foods, free of harmful pesticides.

Location:

Eco Dharma Village is nestled in the charming hills of Arcos de Valdevez in Northern Portugal. Having launched in the Spring of 2019, Eco Dharma is a peaceful space in nature serving as a sanctuary for those in need of a calm and nurturing environment to reset physically and mentally. Fundamental of this place is a deep appreciation for nature and its ability to support healing, allowing us to be more in-tune with our natural rhythm and flow. The values of Eco Dharma are very much aligned with this: we are proud advocates of sustainable and kind living. Eco Dharma has been designed with this goal in mind: our geodesic guest domes have been made from recycled material, and the furniture has been purchased from manufacturers who up-cycled materials such as wood, plastic and metal to create new pieces. The retreat is 100% free of single-use plastics. By the summer of 2020 the plan is on installing solar panels so as to be able to harness solar energy power for the guests!
