Description

Enhance Your Inner Sparkle Yoga + Wellness Retreat in Portugal

Come enjoy the Shanti Space, our Portuguese Quinta retreat sanctuary located in Mafra, only 30 minutes away from Lisbon. This gem of a retreat space as it is located on a farm within walking distance of National Parks, and only 15 minutes drive from Ericeira beach, which offers beautiful waves suited for surfing

This five day retreat will enhance your inner sparkle through inviting the practices in that allows your nervous system to relax and your highest self to shine.

Observe how beautifully being in your “element’ shifts your external world! We will be bathing in the abundance of nature as we practice yoga, dance, meditation and wellness on the farm in our dedicated, fully equipped, practice space.

Your day will consist of two daily movement classes with ample free time to catch some waves, book a wellness service, or check out the nearby (walking distance!) National Parks.

Get excited! A day excursion to the colourful Pena Palace in Sintra is included. The Palacio Nacional da Pena is one of the finest tourist attractions in Portugal and exemplifies the 19th century Romanticism style of architecture.

The palace is a mix of vividly painted terraces, decorative battlements and mythological statues, all of which stand at stark contrast to the lush greens of the Parque de Pena forest. You will enjoy a chartered bus and packed organic lunch on this special adventure.

Experience our Signature Enhance Your Inner Sparkle Essential Oil Class where you will get hands-on with your new 10 pack of therapeutic grade essential oils. During this class you’ll learn easy-to-integrate tips and tricks on clean living and natural health solutions.

Teachers

Kat ‘Sparklez’ Schamens
Considered to be a genuine sparkle spirit, finding herself here, there, + everywhere. Born and raised as a southern gal in North Carolina, steeped deep in the electric field of Brooklyn/NYC for 7 years, and currently calling Berlin her home base as she taps deeper into her German roots.

Her passion for yoga was sparked when she was 12 years old as she heard it would improve her skills as a dancer, needless to say she never went professional but she can attest to the open hips helping her in any dance off that she happens to find herself in. Did someone say, drop down and do a split?

Because she’s probably already on the floor. She’s unapologetically sorry, but 100% guilty of being a training junkie (see certs below). She loves immersing herself with the masters + pulling what truly resonates with herself to create a well rounded practice while having a fun time.

She’s incredibly enthusiastic for living life to it’s fullest which is part of the reason why she’s embraced being an international yoga teacher + doterra wellness advocate. She also created a mermaid unicorn sparkle magic apparel line called Katasana, and you can find her leggings sprinkled about the world (or just reach out via contact form to get the hook up). She loves assisting people in connecting to their ultimate divine purpose through the process of yoga, meditation, self care practices and simply sharing the lifestyle of the best sparkly life.

“I was introduced to yoga during a particularly challenging time in my life and was in need of deep healing. I fell in love with Prana Vinyasa® because it was unlike any yoga class I had ever been to. In Prana Vinyasa®, the breath is intelligently sequenced with each movement, creating a truly transformational mind AND body experience. In the most positive way imaginable, yoga radically shifted my mental and physical health. I know in my heart that I’m meant to share this powerful practice with others.”
