Blush Love Retreat is a week dedicated to slowing down, connecting in and savouring life.
Your soul is calling you home. Can you hear her?
BLUSH LOVE WORKS TO BEAT THE FALSE YOU
- To call your whole self in
- To connect to your divine feminine and masculine
- To create sacred space
- To let go all that served you once, which you no longer need
- A place of nurture within nature
This is more than a yoga retreat
Blush Love Retreat is connection and dedication
Affection and creation, rest, deep delicious diving into slumber rest. Through the movement practices of Qoya and Kundalini Yoga we will dissolve layers of who we think we are, what we perceive we 'should' do and beginning to trust who we are, and allow sweet abundance into our lives.
A chance to slow down and savour
By dropping into our bodies through movement, meditation, ritual, workshops and community we will tap into our own technology: soul-powered, easily-devoured and ready to help us rise and take into our every day lives more refreshed, revived and ready for the life we treasure.
A return to love... Blush Love
Taking time for self care has been sold as a luxury or a necessity post burn-out. Self care has been neglected, defected and rejected by an idea we have to earn it. Not so. Self care is essential for the now age.
To your fullest self in both light and shade; to the beauty and magic of your heart; to the wisdom of your body and soul.
To you with the deepest of gratitude for everything you have to bring forward by returning to Blush Love.
To bathe in the fullest aspects of your beautiful life in glorious high shine. Glow with Blush Love for your life.
ABOUT THE BLUSH LOVE RETREAT SPACE
Blush Love Retreat is a feast for the senses
Nestled in the heart of a nature sanctuary in the wilds of Odemira, south west Portugal, Blush Love Retreat is a yoga meditation retreat which ensures tranquillity, comfort, and nourishment. The retreat and workshop centre is set amongst 71 hectares of permaculture and wildlife, only 15-20 minutes from some of the most beautiful, wild beaches in the country.
Whilst at the retreat you can bathe in the biopool, find stillness in the meditation temple or panoramic solarium, and get lost in the big skies whilst gazing at the moon. Its unique setting has wild canopies, creek vistas, abundant wilderness, and silence - perfect for re-awakening the love within.
Delicious home-cooked vegetarian and vegan dishes are lovingly cooked each day, often using ingredients taken from the garden kitchen that very day.

What level is the Qoya teacher training?
We are offering Qoya Initiation Teacher Training at Blush Love Retreat, which is the first level of in-person teacher training for those people pursuing the journey of becoming a Certified Qoya Teacher. You will need to have completed the online Introduction to Qoya teacher training. If you are a regular Qoya participant, Teacher Training is an amazing way to bring more structure and inspiration to your personal practice, and to go deeper into the fundamentals of Qoya. Similarly, if you are new to Qoya and wish to dive deep with the practices, teacher training is a wonderful way to submerge yourself in all things wise wild and free. For more information head to the Qoya website: http://www.qoya.love/qoya-teacher-training/
If I arrive a day early, or want to stay on at the retreat centre, can I?
Please get in contact directly with our retreat hosts Dave and Juliana at Monte Da Orada, where we hold Blush Love Retreat.
How do I get to the venue?
The best option for getting to Blush Love Retreat is to fly into Faro (1.5 hours drive from the retreat centre), or Lisbon (2-2.5 hours drive). There will be plenty of options for flying to Faro or Lisbon, wherever you are coming in from. Check out Skyscanner to get the best price on flights. We will be providing full details of how to get there ahead of time.
We will be in touch closer to the time with directions, and travel options for you to consider.
I haven't done Qoya or Kundalini yoga before, does this matter?
Absolutely not. We welcome all women to join us in these beautiful practices. There's no beginner, intermediate or advanced levels because there's just one level, and that is when it feels good, you're doing it right.
Would it be a problem if I arrived a day later, or left a day earlier than the retreat dates?
We will always accommodate a later arrival, or early departure. We want this retreat to be all about you, and your needs. Please bear in mind if you are arriving slightly later than Saturday 22nd September, that we will have opened the circle, and begun working as a group, and we wouldn't want you to miss out on any of the magic that brings.
Do I have to take part in the Qoya teacher training?
No, absolutely not. The Qoya teacher training is optional. It's simply an added extra for anyone who feels called to teach Qoya after the retreat. We will still be doing Qoya each day as part of the retreat offering. To find out more about Qoya, and Qoya teacher training, head to www.qoya.love
