Calling all sensual babes,

friendly ppl + nature lovers,

You are invited to join me for a fully nature-immersed week retreat in the beautiful Portuguese forest.

 

We’ll be romanticising the heck out of ourselves! Growing our self-belief of being a baddass, as well as filling it with joy, friendship & radical rest.

 

Fancy a week of relaxation, belly laughs, soft sensual moments, confidence building & joy? Then this is for you!

 

There’s also lots of time for just enjoying being in nature & chilling to the max, everything is very optional!

HUGS alis xx

HEY

BABE!

1st - 7th September

Pleasure in Paradise is a joy-led sensory immersive experience week retreat.

Each day will have a slightly different flava.

 

I will be leading us on a romantic, restful, joyful, silly, & sensual week together as we anchor in our inner bold, but chilled out baddasses.

 

Joy, body-acceptance & self-worth is at the core of everything at Yeah Love.

 

This isn’t just another retreat. We‘ll be diving deep but with love! A week to connect & find trust

with your body, your purpose & make cool friends.

Outdoor Shala

Picture this...

 

Every night we will fall asleep under the stars, and rise to the sounds of the forest: the birds & the river.

 

We’ll slowly wake ourselves & our bodies up through kind, playful & embodied movement practices.

 

Our days filled with workshops, rituals, circles, romance, saunas, and sillyness. With plenty of time for exploring Cara Creek and chilling, whether that’s lounging, reading a book, sweating in the sauna or cooling down in the pool. We may laugh, nap, cry or dance together! Community is at the heart of it all.

 

Feeling switched on and grounded within our bodies.

Filling our bellies with yummy food and ending our days, feeling nourished and supported by the babes we have around us.

 

               Hell yeah!

FAQ

Is this retreat for me?

This space is for women, transwomen & non-binary AFAB to come together & celebrate each other. And maybe even make some new friends! All shapes, bodies, ages & abilities are welcome. If you’ve been feeling the pull of it being a HELL YEAH then it’s for you! I alway foster full autonomy over your own body and what you do with it within my sessions, this retreat is no different. Maybe you’ve never been on a retreat at all before, that’s also totally okay! I invite you to be brave and come along for the ride babe! Enjoyment of nature is probably desired :-)

 

Do I need to be good at yoga or dancing?

Absolutely not. Everything is very optional. I guide you to listen to your body and to move in a way that is kind and compassionate to yourself. Although my style of yoga & movement practices I regard as being gentle, I appreciate everyone’s bodies are different, and always provide plenty of options. All wobbles & slow movement is welcome here (that’s my fav). You can join in as much or as little as you want. All shapes, sizes, jiggles welcome here!

 

Do I have to be nakee?

Absolutely not. We will talk about consent & what we’re comfortable with at the start of the week.

This week is to celebrate ourselves and our (optionally naked) bodies at times if desired.

 

Can I pay in installments?

Ofcourse! Payment plans are available. Pay a £300 deposit then the remaining amount can be paid in a payment plan. Earlybird pricing includes payment plans. (Details on booking form)

Can I come alone?

Absolutely. Sometimes coming on your own can mean you can fully let go into the experience, and make some new like-minded friends! I’ll also do my best to help you feel supported & part of the group.

 

How can I book?

To sign up and secure your space, fill in the booking form here.

 

Are there toilets & showers?

Bathrooms are shared. There are 3 showers sustainably heated by solar power or a wood stove. Plus 2 cold water outdoor showers. There are 3 flushing toilets and 2 dry compost toilets.

 

What is the accessibility of the venue?

We are out in nature and in a venue which isn’t stepfree, so may be problematic for those with some mobility issues.

Keep in mind we are in a rural setting. Please feel free to email me with any accessibility Qs or needs: hello@yeah-love.com

 

Is there electricity?

Eco Pods do not have electricity, but do have a small solar lamp. Charging points will be available on site, but this is an

opportunity to switch off as much as possible. We are off-grid and in the forest. There is wifi, but the aim is for us to switch off as much as we can <3

What they sayin’?

Alis has a magical way of creating a safe-feeling, sensual space
for you to unfurl
, come back to yourself, and connect.

The warmest community...where one minute you’re exploring the sensations of a feather on your body and the next you’re jiggling every jiggly bit in an upbeat dance party session feeling like a BADDASS.

If you’re looking for an experience to explore your body
in a more
loving, mindful way this is the one for you.

“WARM, GENEROUS, PLAYFUL, SENSITIVE”
