How did you start Chia Retreats?
Chia Retreats started in 2016 with the move from London to Portugal. From years of living and working in London, feeling the drain, stresses and pressure of city life, after many short escapades to Portugal, the clean air, delicious food and space gave lightness, clarity and a realisation to a dream. The creation of a space, not far from London, to bring all these best essential elements together in the form of a yoga retreat in Portugal. Knowledge of the location in north Portugal and the feelings that Londoners have really helped a lot to relate and create something valuable.
Whats your background?
A mixed background: all centred around one purpose; to make others happy.
How is this now your life?
Belief in what I am doing has meant that I have the confidence and persistence to deliver on this dream.
What things have you done in the past which help you now?
Experience with people is really the one thing that I draw on the most. Empathy, passion and a genuine desire to make someone’s day. So many guests say thank you for the personal service, this has been the best yoga retreat. It can be something so simple but a personal and real experience is so rare nowadays.0
