About This Event

Blush Love Retreat is a week long retreat blending movement practices of Qoya and Kundalini Yoga with life coaching and neuro linguistic programming (NLP), meditation and mindfulness.


To call your whole self in

To connect to your divine feminine and masculine

To create sacred space

To let go all that served you once, which you no longer need

A place of nurture within nature.

This is more than a yoga retreat...

Blush Love Retreat is connection and dedication.

Affection and creation, rest, deep delicious diving into slumber rest. Through the movement practices of Qoya and Kundalini Yoga we will dissolve layers of who we think we are, what we perceive we 'should' do and beginning to trust who we are, and allow sweet abundance into our lives.

A chance to slow down and savour.

By dropping into our bodies through movement, meditation, ritual, workshops and community we will tap into our own technology: soul-powered, easily-devoured and ready to help us rise and take into our every day lives more refreshed, revived and ready for the life we treasure.

A return to love... Blush Love

Taking time for self care has been sold as a luxury or a necessity post burn-out. Self care has been neglected, defected and rejected by an idea we have to earn it. Not so. Self care is essential for the now age.

The retreat will allow guests the opportunity to slow down and connect in with a re-discovered passion for life. The transformational benefits will encourage women to make more meaningful positive changes in their lives way beyond the week. It is also the first time that Qoya Initiation Teacher Training will be held in Europe.



Through movement we remember. We remember our essence is wise, wild, and free.

Wise, wild and free also draw reference to the movement forms we practice:

Wise: the wisdom of yoga

Wild: the creative expression in dance

Free: expanding our capacity to enjoy our bodies through sensual movement.

In Qoya there is no way you can do it wrong and the way you know you're doing it right is when it feels good.



Arouse the possibilities within yourself and your life.

Kundalini energy slumbers looped at the base of our spine, womb deep. In sacred connection through movement, breath work, mantra and meditation we call this energy, this human technology and bring it into our lives.

Kundalini yoga relieves our system of many challenges: stress, dis-ease and congestion. It reminds us of who we are and enables us to live fuller lives, allows us to work smarter and changes the channel from Netflix gorge to Blush Love revelry.

This practice is magical: conjuring change with each move.

We will be offering Europe's first ever opportunity to complete Qoya Initiation teacher training as part of the retreat itself. To find out more about Qoya, and becoming a Qoya teacher visit the Qoya Love website.
