Retreat in Fuerteventura

Somatic Empowerment for women

Embracing Sensitivity -Retreat 27.08. - 01.09.24

Are you feeling stressed, anxious or just overwhelmed? 

I know the feeling. But I also know how joyful life can be as a sensitive person, fully living in her purpose.

I want to provide a safe and supportive space where you can fully embrace your authentic self without judgment. Whether you're grappling with stress, anxiety, or simply craving a moment of stillness, I’m here to walk alongside you every step of the way.

 

This is a retreat that will take you into a journey of nervous system regulation, releasing body based memories and bringing ourselves to the natural rest & recovery state. You will connect with your body in ways of somatic movement, meditation/visualization and somatic yoga, and get support in a group with other sensitive women on the same path.

As a sensitive person you might feel: 

 

  • Easily overwhelmed and anxious

  • Overanalyzing your emotions 

  • Stressed and burned out faster than others

  • Easily affected by environment or people around you 

  • Worry a lot

  • Exhausted of always giving from yourself and caring about everyone else so deeply, and not knowing how to ask help for yourself

  • Difficulties with keeping up with your boundaries

  • ..but you are also intuitive, insightful and seem to notice much more than others

For who

6 days of connection, calmness & joy

Have you ever thought  that “you just need to toughen up”? This is a path that many sensitive people take in order to fit in. But what about softening even more and allowing yourself to feel it all?

 

During this retreat you will go into a journey into yourself, connect with your inner joy and freedom and learn to embrace sensitivity as your strength. We will explore somatic practicing, including nervous system regulation, releasing body based memories and making space for your full expression. You will learn to manage stress and overwhelm with practical somatic tools, and empower yourself with embodiment practices. 

I want to see soft and sensitive people thriving, going after their dreams. Taking those leadership positions, starting these new projects and going into all those adventures. Because I know that when sensitive women take the lead, the world changes. We  lead with empathy and we care about others, nature, humanity, and we don't want to take from others so only we can win, we want everyone to succeed. 

 

But to do that we have to learn to take care of ourselves. As sensitive people we are in danger of putting everyone else first and being so caring that we get exhausted when it feels like we are constantly giving from ourselves and not receiving much back. 

 

So you need to put yourself first. And it can feel scary! But you can do it, gently. You can honor your needs with kindness, and learn to give from yourself while being clear about your own resources. So take this time to give yourself the gift of presence, self-care, and inner peace. You deserve it.

Location


 

Ecorelax Fuerteventura is located in a quiet rural area only 15 minutes away from the dunes and beaches of Corralejo, and is ideal for relaxation and enjoying the concept of ecological and peaceful accommodation, with traditional Canarian architecture and outside of overcrowded urban centers. Thanks to the solar panels most of the villa’s electricity consumption comes from the sun and all the water consumed is used to irrigate the garden, for which the villa also uses rainwater.  The eco villa is fortunate to have unique views of the east coast of Lanzarote, the Natural Park Isla de Lobos, piteras plantations and volcanoes. 
 

  • Natural area of 4000 m2

  • 5 suites + common areas

  • Beach pool with waterfall

  • Autochthonous garden of Malpais

Fuerteventura is all about nature in its purest state, volcanic landscapes, beautiful beaches of turquoise water and golden, white or black sand. It is known for its protected spaces and light and sun all year round, the island of eternal spring. Fuerteventura’s Starlight Reserve is famous for the quality of its night sky, ideal for stargazing. A paradise declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Somatic movement

In somatic movement classes we work on themes like: releasing tension from the body, creating a good and safe feeling within yourself, getting reconnected with forgotten parts of yourself, releasing fascia and listening the subtle messages from our bodies. We are fully concentrated on how the movement feels in your body, at the moment. Attention is inwards, deep in the body and we are in the  experience of here and now.
