Yoga and Stress Reduction in Ilhabela

Teresa Prado

Ilhabela, são paulo

Enjoy this stunning getaway on the island of Ilhabela, Brazil. Refuel with daily yoga classes open to all levels, meditation sessions, in-house massage and delicious Brazilian meals prepared at home.

Located just steps away from the ocean, you will have direct access to swimming, as well as the option of walking five minutes to a stunning beach secluded in the neighbourhood of Feiticeira.

Our retreat centre is designed for anyone looking to expand the mind-body connection while also replenishing the spirit. You will have plenty of free time to explore the island, book a massage or simply enjoy the incredible views from the house while lounging in one of our hammocks.

This retreat is perfect for those who have just come through a period of prolonged stress and are looking to reflect, recuperate, and rejuvenate (and of course have a lot of fun!). The retreat is led by Dr. Rami Nijjar, who will be integrating mindfulness, reflective writing, and cognitive behavioural stress reduction techniques. Participants will also have two yoga classes a day, aimed at reducing anxiety and letting go of stress. They will also have ample free time to enjoy all that Ilhabela has to offer.

Rami Nijjar is a clinical psychologist and sex therapist who specializes in stress reduction and self compassion. Alongside her clinical practice she participates in ongoing yoga and meditation training in order to better understand how the body and mind experience stress and how we can best work with our suffering.

Ilhabela is the largest island off the coast of Brazil, located halfway between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Here you will be able to enjoy the beautiful tropical beaches, waterfalls and a thriving downtown with shops, restaurants and bars.
