YACEP Denmark

Yoga Retreat for self-care and Continued Education (YACEP) in Portugal

From August 14.-21., 2022 you can participate in this truly unique yoga retreat set in the middle of the scenic Portuguese nature. It combines daily self-care/wellness sessions with a module based continued education program certified by Yoga Alliance. It is all about you. You decide which classes you want to attend and when you need a break and just want to enjoy a walk, journal in the sun, relax in the pool or sit and chat with like-minded people. We are embracing the closeness to nature, which is healing in itself. You can choose to sleep in one of the comfortable glamping tents, as close to nature as it gets and the food we serve is garden to table: fresh and made with love.

You can choose how long you want to stay (minimum 2 nights). If you are a yoga teacher, you can even receive up to 36hrs of continued education credits certified by Yoga Alliance.
As a teacher you are very welcome to share your teachings with the group and you will receive private yoga teacher coaching afterwards, to help you grow and develop your teaching skills (1h included).

3 weeks before this retreat we start the unique 200hrs Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. Why unique? The closeness to nature will be a big part of your development. You will also get a mentor assigned, who will support your process and help you grow. The overall teacher/student ratio is kept very small, to make sure our qualified and passionate team prepares you as best as we can for your journey as a teacher. Also already certified teachers are welcome to join, we will do our utmost best to teach you something new.

This retreat is not only for yoga teachers! Come and enjoy self-care and explore the different workshops and get inspired.

Why take time to integrate after a Yoga TTC

We made this extension for the TTC for good reasons. Attending a TTC is a life changing, intense and unique experience. I have been to five TTCs myself and every time I had to go back to the “real life” I got a proper culture shock. Lives can be quite different “out there”. Hence, we make this program for you to digest and integrate your experience in a safe, familiar and welcoming environment, where you get the support you might need. We make this training with love, to allow you to come back home not only as a freshly graduated teacher but also grounded and relaxed. As a bonus you can join the daily continued yoga education classes to deepen your knowledge further. But no stress, this part of your journey is all about you and your needs of time and space. As a Off Grid Yoga School alumni you will receive 10% discount on the daily rate.

Julia is one of the most precious yoga teacher I’ve ever had! I would recommend all her practices with a special mention for her yoga nidra. I got so relaxed and so deeply calmed down by her voice during each session, she helped me letting it go towards either a tight sleep or for restful nap. Very powerful experience and human being. thank you Warrior Princess!

Agnieszka January 21st, 2020

I have had the most relaxing beautiful experience in the yoga Nidra class. Thank you so much 🙏. You are so knowledgeable and your voice so soothing

Sarah February 14th, 2020

Julia ably and effortlessly led a vinyasa class with clear instruction and really helpful assists. She spoke about philosophy just the right amount, there was still plenty of space and quiet to really get into the practice. Thank you Julia!! I loved it

Julia is an amazing teacher. I have had three classes with her so far and she already improved my asanas a lot. I appreciate her hands on experience and eye for detail. Thank you Julia. Big hug! (by the way: her guided meditations are the best!)
