About the event

Don’t awaken one day to realize another whole year has gone by…

THE CHEMICAL SYMBOL FOR CHANGE IS △ , THE GREEK LETTER DELTA. IT’S ONE OF THE MOST STABLE SHAPES KNOWN TO THIS WORLD.

Like an ice cube melting in the hot sun, or water boiling for your cup of tea, a state change requires suitable conditions and the desire to evolve.

Though crafting time away from your day to day life of work, routine and the familiar can be difficult, it is this action, this desire for a version of yourself only hinted at, that supports you in the process of changing your mind, changing your body and of changing your state.

Whatever intention you’re currently evolving, this gathering of insightful and genuine humans shall support you in cultivating and experiencing your deepest wisdom as you challenge the purpose of your one wild and precious life.

THE RETREAT CENTER

Journey to the vibrant Atlantic coast of Portugal.

Cocoon,  2 hours south of Lisbon, is a 275 acre coastal farm recently reviewed in Condé Nast Traveler as one of the 8 best farm stays in Europe.

Home to chickens, goats, peacocks, sheep, you and a fresh water lake, it’s a place where old growth pines sway in the breeze, carrying the scent of eucalyptus, lavender and wild rosemary.

Located in the costal Alentejo region, also known as The Costa Vincentina, minutes from the traditional fishing village of Zambujiera Del Mar, the area is known for its long stretches of untouched coastline and charming white washed villages.

Surf or horseback riding lessons are available for anyone interested, at an additional charge.

Morning and evening yoga practices will support you as you reorganize, reset and renew your practice. Drawing from  Katonah, Hatha, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra yoga practices, the nourishing use of pranayama and meditation takes place as farm to table meals are prepared for you.

Striking coastlines, simple fishing villages, perfect surf on secret beaches await your feet as you explore this dynamic part of the world.

We recommend you rent a car so that you have the freedom to explore.

ABOUT THE TEACHERS

Ramesh and Elisa have travelled the world together leading retreats and are excited to be returning to Cocoon.

Elisa is inspired by the methodology of Katonah Yoga, which builds on her background of Yin, Aerial and Restorative Yoga. Her teaching blends the practical with the esoteric; expect her classes to be a deliciously inspiring and perspective-shifting journey.

Raised with the lens of Yoga since a young age, Ramesh delights in the meeting points of science and spirituality. A 3000 hour trained massage therapist, with almost 20 years of experience teaching Yoga, his classes are inspired, leveraging you into the fullest expression of yourself.

ABOUT THE CLASSES

Two daily practices take place in 2 different spaces: outdoors on a gorgeous platform beneath a canopy of pines; inside. in a beautiful high ceilinged, light filled studio.

Morning practice runs 2+ hours so that you can indulge in a full, deep and profound practice including meditation and pranayama. The evening classes will arc throughout the week, running from deeply restorative practices to activated and focused.

By the end of the week, expect to feel refreshed and radiant!
