At Delight, we are dedicated to supporting you in your personal growth so you can feel the joy of being. For the third year in a row we will come together for the Delight Summer Retreat at D’Alijo Retreat Center in Portugal. Here we will offer three inspirational retreats to go deeper into your yoga practice, heart connection and meditation. You will also enjoy a communal experience with a like minded group of people who are focused on finding a deeper and more meaningful connection to themselves and life.

Why would I participate in the Delight Summer Retreats? In today's world, we are constantly bombarded with external stimuli and distractions, and it's easy to become disconnected from ourselves, our true nature, and what's truly important in life. The Delight Summer Retreat offers you the unique opportunity to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, live close to nature and tune in to your innermost being. The Summer Retreats is a time to be free of distractions and focus on yourself in a beautiful and peaceful natural environment.

At the heart of the Summer Retreats is the practice and wisdom of yoga, which offers an ancient and powerful way to connect with yourself on a deep level. By practicing yoga in a retreat setting close to nature and away from the distractions of daily life, you can dive deeper into your practice and access a level of clarity and peace that might be harder to achieve otherwise.

But the Delight Summer Retreat is about much more than just yoga. It's an opportunity to immerse yourself in a supportive community of like-minded individuals who are all seeking to reconnect with themselves and live from the heart. When we come together with others who are on a similar path, we can find a sense of belonging and support that can be difficult to find in the outside world. We can also learn from each other and be inspired by each other's journeys. By living close to nature in the retreats we can regain connection to the wisdom and guidance of the natural world, waking us to the wonder that is nature and that we are a part of this beautiful world not separate from it.

What can I expect from the Delight Summer Retreat?
