MAY RETREAT

Fri, 21 - Sun, 23 May 2021

Fully booked!

Tucked away in the green hills of Serra da Arrábida with stunning ocean views is Villa Epicurea. This beautiful eco-lodge will host us for our upcoming May Retreat.

With a natural pool, yoga dome, generous suites and eco-villas, it is the perfect place to become immersed in the serenity of the surrounding landscape, soak up the fresh spring air, rest and rewind and find a creative flow, inspired by nature.

Creative Flow

Yoga, Breathwork and Meditation

Body and mind are each other’s mirror. Explore and enjoy movement, balance and presence and find an inspired flow, physically and mentally. Relax and refresh body and mind through energising vinyasa and soothing yin yoga, breathwork and meditation guided by Lena.

Handmade Paper and Printmaking

Get into the creative flow with Lisboa Social Press founders Jilly and Tom during their hands-on papermaking and printmaking workshops. During the sessions you will be encouraged to create intuitively in the beautiful natural setting of Serra da Arrábida to switch off and become grounded within the creative process, completing the day with not only a mindful approach to making but also a stack of prints and paper to take home.

About Lena

Lena has always been passionate about health, movement and fitness. With a back-ground as sports therapist and personal trainer, she discovered yoga in 2012. To deepen her practise and learn about the underlying philosophy of yoga, she practised at the source of Ashtanga yoga in Mysore, India, at the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Insitute. She returned several times and completed her 500-hour Vinyasa yoga teacher training. Her dynamic flows are dedicated to awareness, the synchronisation of breath and movement, mindfully practiced asanas and space to explore the beauty of yoga.

Lisboa Social Press is an independent artist-run studio for hands-on creative workshops for locals and visitors alike, founded in 2018 by artists Jillian Roberts and Tom Maryniak, both graduated in Fine Art Printmaking.
The artist duo work together and specialise in teaching a varied programme of in-person and digital creative workshops.
Alongside these, Lisboa Social Press simultaneously facilitates cultural events, artists in residence, guest workshops and public exhibitions.
