Yoga with Mars

Yoga retreat with Mars Gossi

Retreat details

We find joy and inspiration when we are truly connected to our deepest truths and heartfelt desires… when we align body, head and heart. But sometimes our busy lives leave us feeling a little dizzy and unsure of our true north. Perhaps some space to breath, reflect and dream is what we deserve?

Give yourself that space to reconnect to your inner compass. During twice daily yoga, inspired by ashtanga vinyasa, vinyasa flow, and yin yoga, we will delve deep into our hearts to shed light on our truth. We will connect with nature and its rhythm to release old stories and invite new perspectives to our lives. We will explore the power of journaling, rituals, breathing exercises, sound, touch and meditation to help nurture our unique journeys and live our truth. There will also be plenty of time to just be and embrace the raw beauty of the valley.

Mars is a travelling yogini, originally from Australia, now based in Portugal and loves all things good for you… yoga, massage, nature, food and travel. As a yoga teacher and massage therapist her intention is to create a space allowing safe, honest, joyful self-enquiry and transformation. Mars went to her first yoga class in 2008, and it was love at first sun salutation. Since 2014 she has dedicated herself to the yogic path, trading a demanding corporate job for a journey that has taken her around the world to deepen her practice and teaching. Yoga has invited great transformation in Mars’ life and she is honoured to share the practice and its transformational power.

Yoga with Mars is an invitation to be curious, to pause, to check in, to breath with awareness, to move with awareness, to lead with the heart, to let go of expectation and feel what is at that very moment. She believes yoga is about community and bringing people together. So it doesn’t matter if you are a 'first time', 'some of the time' or 'all the time’ yogi, there’s room for you. Her intuitive classes draw from ashtanga vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga. She tries to show a path towards inner and outer stability, strength and flexibility in an ego-free and loving environment. Mars is playful, energetic, compassionate and grounded. She combines dynamic and gentle movements with meditation, breathing, sound and massage to reach deep relaxation and a space for transformation. Mars also shares her interpretations of the teachings to inspire positive change.

Mars’ massage treatments help you to tune into your body’s innate wisdom to heal. With compassion and love, she offers treatments in Thai yoga and oil to recharge and rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. Her touch generates immediate trust to surrender and let go.

Mars has taught classes, privates, workshops and retreats in Australia, Asia and Europe. She is a dedicated ashtanga vinyasa practitioner, and has spent extensive time in Mysore, India. She has completed 200hr TTCs in hatha/vinyasa flow as well as ashtanga vinyasa, and is a certified massage therapist. She has also completed a 10-day vipassana in the buddhist tradition. Mars is grateful to all her teachers, including you.
