WHAT TO EXPECT
Join Olga Oskorbina and Rebeca Recatero on this retreat in the magical valley in Portugal where the surroundings compliment the pursuit of inner development and calm abiding.
The Shanti Space is a beautiful traditional Quinta set in the forest of a national park. Cocooned by nature, our neighbours are an Iberian Wolf Sanctuary and many animals like deer, wild boar and owls.
Yet it is so well connected. 15 minutes drive to the rugged Atlantic coastline, famous surf beaches and the charming, hip surf town Ericeira. 30 minutes to Lisbon and its International Airport.

Combining knowledge drawn from Jivamukti Yoga and Vipasana meditation, Olga is grateful for the opportunity to share the teachings and learn from other yogis and yoginis. Bringing asana practice, chanting, meditation and spiritual insights together on the principle that yoga is a path to liberation through love and compassion for all beings, Olga is continuing to pass on the teachings shared with her by her teachers.

Born in Madrid, she had her first experience with Jivamukti Yoga in Sydney, Australia. The discovery of Yoga philosophy ignited a burning desire to expand and transform. In this environment, the universal law of cause and effect became very apparent.
She trusts in the necessity for consistent, regular practice to experience and deepen the understanding of the common nature of all beings.
In her teachings, she tries to raise awareness by creating a space that is progressive towards equality. Rebeca is dedicated to protecting animal rights and contributing to the benefit of all beings in some small way.
Extending gratitude to her teachers and mentors Ruth Lauer-Manenti and Olga Oskorbina, she honours their teachings by continuing the flow of information. She is an 800h Advanced Certified Jivamukti teacher.
