Passagem de Ano Injoy

29 de Dezembro de 2012 a 1 Janeiro de 2013
Sábado às 16 horas a Terça às 16 horas (feriado)


Feliz Ano Novo. Injoy!

A passagem de ano pode ser um ritual marcante e precioso. Um momento especial em que tomamos consciência do que foi o ano que passou e do que queremos que seja o ano que se inicia. Pode ser, especialmente, um momento de grande alegria e de celebração da magia de estarmos vivos. E de termos pela frente mais um ano nas nossas vidas, em que nos será dada a oportunidade, única, de nos realizarmos verdadeiramente!

Pela primeira vez na sua história, a Injoy organiza uma passagem de ano em Portugal. E convida todos os que desejam fortemente abrir os seus corações à partilha, à renovação, à alegria de viver.

São 3 dias e 3 noites de grande celebração entre amigos, em que vamos tocar fundo na nossa alma e expandir a magia de estarmos vivos! Porque acreditamos que o que há de melhor está em cada ser humano! Nos seus corações e na própria capacidade de criar uma vida melhor para si.

Este será, sem dúvida, um momento de reunião único em que desenvolveremos algumas actividades que nos ajudarão a ter a tranquilidade e descanso necessários, alegria, força e motivação imprescindíveis para entrarmos no ano que se inicia da melhor forma. Ao mesmo tempo despertaremos a nossa criatividade e o nosso espírito de eterna juventude para voltar a celebrar, rir e viver, cada momento, como uma dádiva.




Esperam-no experiências de meditação em conjunto, de dança: rituais ancestrais e de renovação, círculos de fogo sagrado, entre outras incríveis surpresas.

E, claro, uma grande festa de cerimónia e de comemoração ao novo ano que há em nós à espera de ser inaugurado. Venha dar um sentido mais profundo e verdadeiro a este seu ritual de passagem. Venha tornar a sua noite única, dançando, com as estrelas e a lua, a natureza mágica e selvagem do lugar, e com amigos, velhos e novos - amigos do coração.

Venha entrar com o pé direito no caminho que o levará em direcção àquilo que deseja ser, ter ou fazer.

A sua passagem de ano 2012 - 2013 vai ser mágica, para que este novo ano possa ser, realmente um Feliz Ano Novo!

Yoga Detox Retreat

The Yoga Detox holiday is our most popular yoga retreat. Whether Yoga is new to you, or you are an accomplished Yogi, you will enjoy and benefit highly from my specific detoxifying blend of Yoga postures. The level of instruction is personalized to suit each individual.

On a daily basis you will have two meditation sessions and two yoga classes including asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and relaxation techniques. For you we will serve breakfast, a light lunch and dinner, all based on simple, but pure, healthy, vegetarian yoga food.

To help the detoxifying process of your body, we use special foods and natural supplements to help eliminate accumulated toxins. Yoga has a very detoxifying effect on the organs, and our yoga classes focus on poses beneficial to the detox process.

More and more diseases are caused by our modern lifestyle therefore cleansing is an essential physical process that brings health and happiness.
