Elemental Resonance retreat



1 – 6 September 2024

our intention for this retreat

Imagine a time and a place with no need to perform, rush, succeed, prove, or compete — a sanctuary where you’re welcomed exactly as you are. Where you are fully accepted and encouraged to authentically express and be yourself.

A space to breathe and reconnect with yourself & nature

This retreat invites you to come back home to yourself.

Through Breathwork and self-inquiry you will gain insights and a deeper understanding of the beliefs, programs, incomplete stress cycles and thoughts that shape your reality. You will have the chance to connect to and feel into emotions and past experiences that still weigh on your heart and soul, so those can be released, completed and integrated. An invitation to embrace both – your light and shadow –  weaving them together into wholeness. This gives space for your true essence to be seen and expressed, for authenticity and integrity, for depth and acceptance, for clarity and trust, for self-love and empowerment, for resilience, capacity and integration.

Conscious movement practices help to ground you in your body, releasing any tension and quietening the mind. Meditations will root you back into being present with the now and tune into your inner wisdom. Connecting with nature allows you to unwind, recharge, and feel a sense of oneness. Being in community and sitting in circle creates a sensed feeling of belonging.


FBR is a very unique combination of Conscious Connected Breathing and Bodywork. It is based on the newest understandings of neuroscience, breathing mechanics and the effects of conditioning, past experiences and trauma on the human body. 

This practice allows us to tap into our subconscious and go beyond the limitations of our mind and reconnect with the deeper wisdom within to:

– restore our breathing mechanics

– regulate our nervous system

– release emotions and reflexes

– process and integrate incomplete past experiences

– find more ease, clarity, confidence and trust

– increase physical, mental  emotional capacity and resilience

Every one of us is unique and so are our breathing mechanics, nervous system responses and every breath journey we embark on. This practice honors everyone’s own history, intention, present constitution and capacity. We listen deeply and work with the intelligence of the body & breath – safely and gradually.

guided by The elements

At the heart of this retreat lies the exploration of Breathwork intertwined with rituals and practices that connect us with the elements. Throughout our journey, each day is dedicated to immersing ourselves in the wisdom of one element.

earth, water, fire and air

Through different practices and rituals we will uncover their unique qualities and teachings. From grounding ourselves in the stability of earth to cleansing and purifying with the flow of water, igniting our inner strength with the fire’s energy, and expanding our consciousness with the freedom of air, each element offers a pathway to profound self-discovery and healing.

“When you bring your attention to a stone, a tree or an animal, something of its essence transmits itself to you. You can sense how still it is and in doing so the same stillness rises within you. You can sense how deeply it rests in being, completely one with what it is and where it is, in realizing this, you too come to a place or rest deep within yourself.”

— Eckhart Tolle


Certainly, we’ve got an array of amazing practices and experiences each day but we highly encourage you to deeply listen to your needs moment to moment. It is not about working off another to-do-list. It is designed to support and empower you in tapping into your body’s inner wisdom and deciding from a state of alignment, intuition and capacity in what activities and practices you participate.

Jump into the pool to cool down and refresh.
Find solitude under a tree or in your cozy room.
Share nourishing brunches, snacks and dinners in the communal area or terrace.
We aim to do most of our practices and rituals outside and in nature. For our Breathwork journeys we will come together in the exclusive and beautiful yoga space.
Our private chef will ensure that we are well-nourished with colorful, healthy, and delicious meals. We can accommodate any dietary preferences. Each day will feature tea, infused water, and fruits in the morning, followed by a hearty brunch after our morning practice, a satisfying afternoon snack, and a comforting dinner to conclude the day.
The bedrooms each feature a private bathroom and a small terrace. There are 2 private rooms and 3 shared rooms available.
The venue is approximately 75-90 minutes away from Faro Airport. We can assist you in organizing a taxi.

About the facilitators

Pia and I met three years ago in a life-altering Breathwork training on the magical island Bali. Since then, our bond has evolved beyond friendship into working together with a big passion and dedication to Breathwork.

We can both wholeheartedly say that our lives have changed drastically – with some major inner and outer life shifts – since we started working with the breath.

Pia and I have extensive experience in various modalities such as Yoga, Bodywork, Holistic Health, Emotional Release and Energy Work. When we work together, it always feels like an easy flow as we complement each other.

It’s an honor for us to lead others on their unique journey of rediscovering their authenticity, strength, balance, clarity, gentleness and expression.
