ABOUT THE RETREAT
This might just be the most divine and carefree week of your life. Over seven days, we’ll tread lightly and joyfully, bottling the magic of early mornings spent in nature, blending complimentary styles of yoga, experiencing self-transcendence through Ecstatic Dance, tuning into the frequencies of sacred sound, and connecting to the compassionate heart with cacao.
Our days will begin with a soothing meditation or silent walk, followed by an energising and healing vinyasa yoga practice in the open sky shala. Some days, we’ll then take the energy of our practice off our mats and onto the dance floor and continue to enjoy the sense of freedom and openness we’ve created in our bodies.
As the shadows grow long in the afternoons, we’ll gather for a series of workshop-style sessions that capitalise on this still and steady portion of the day. We’ll sink into long-held yin postures that invite our minds to become quiet and reflective,
travel the world on an enchanting journey through sound, led by Joaquin Sabate, and experience the euphoric effects of ceremonial cacao, an ancient medicine that connects us to our pure heart energy.
Then we’ll dance – with abandon and without judgement! ‘Ecstatic Dance’ provides space for a conscious and sober experience, without the distraction of phones or talking, and this liberating atmosphere promotes total freedom of expression, enabling us to enter a trance-like state that truly connects us with ourselves and those around us. You have to experience it to believe it.
No extensive knowledge or level of yoga or dance is necessary for this retreat – just a curious mind and a willingness to try new things. Expect to play, move and learn, to go beyond the norms and conventions that often hold us back, and to experience a profound sense of joy and interconnectedness.

Joaquin was born in a rural Argentinian town in 1989. After completing his creative studies in Buenos Aires, he set off on a worldwide adventure, collecting experiences in meditation, anthropology and plant medicine. During this time, his love for music led him to Ecstatic Dance, where he found himself in deep spiritual awakening.
In 2017, Joaquin brought together all his experiences and influences, founding the 'House of the Rising Mojo', an artistic community by the sea in Portugal, where the arts, yoga and ceremonial traditions are wholly embraced and meaningfully combined. As a musician, Joaquin combines pre-Columbian shamanic sounds from the Americas and Africa, to paint eastern landscapes and invoke yogic and oriental wisdom through sound. In this way, he unites the world and its diverse cultures to create a sound journey where you are free to go anywhere.
Joaquin understands the transmission of wisdom as key for the evolution of our souls, and the connection with our hearts as our most sacred gift.
