Yoga in Madeira

with Dot Bowen, Katie Worsdell and Gratia Churchill

The Yoga

2 - 4 hours daily of yoga asana, breathing and meditation.

This practice explores the nature of breath, gravity and the intelligence of our body in a peaceful and harmonious way. Through attentive practice, we reconcile unhelpful patterns of thought and movement to release tension and remember our vital selves.

This is a practice of freedom and you are warmly invited to bring all your curiosity, playfulness, questions and insights to the sessions.

We will offer all our experience to enable you to become confident and empowered in your own ongoing enquiry.

Dot will be offering her vast experience and unique approach to the yoga sessions.

Special Workshops

We will be offering evening workshops in Yoga Nidra, Mantra, Mala making and Yogic chanting to give your creative side some time to express itself. Gratia Churchill will be leading our kirtan and yoga nidra sessions.


Katie has a wealth of experience and passion for sharing the many nature trail pathways on the island which are really only accessible on foot. She will guide us on stunning nature walks to Madeira's wonderful interior so we can enjoy the beauty of this special place.


Madeira produces a huge range of the most vibrant fruits and vegetables. Our chef will prepare delicious simple and easy-to-digest, vegetarian meals for you from the freshest local produce. 

There will be plenty of fresh fruits to enjoy between meals and herbal teas and other refreshments to keep you satisfied throughout the retreat. Just let us know if you have any special dietary requirements and we will do our best to accommodate you.


Quinta de Santa Luzia is a traditional working farm. It is one of the few remaining on the island that still possesses the characteristics of a farm or estate as they once existed in Madeira.

The large family home and gardens has an abundance of history and charm, decorated in an old world style.

Set within the privacy of its own gardens, the facilities include a terrace with views over the bay of Funchal, a pool, full sized snooker table, piano, table football, table tennis and tennis court.
