Liquid Yoga, Deep Breath, Subtle Body: A Luxury Dolphin Swim Retreat (Mozambique)

September 28 - October 8


Liquid Yoga, Deep Breath, Subtle Body

A Luxury Dolphin Swim Retreat

With Cora Verkuilen, Rhianne van der Linde & Courtney Ward

28th September – 8th October 2018

“No matter how relaxed you are, you can always relax more” – Cora Verkuilen

Cora Verkuilen’s soul searching journey started more than 20 years ago, practicing yoga, meditation and Pranayama. In 2007 she founded  Yogatrainer (www.yogatrainer.nl) – a yoga and breathing studio in Eindhoven. Through yoga and breath work she teaches mastery of mind and body.



Rhianne van der Linde is an avid dolphin dreamer, explorer and breath worker extraordinaire. For the past 5 years she has been attending, organizing and co-facilitating retreats in Mozambique. The energy of her many encounters with the dolphins and vastness of the ocean permeate her being.



Courtney Ward offers an extraordinary ocean awareness program, through her intimate relations with the dolphins, her love of people and her love of the ocean. Together these three women will guide you on a deep diving adventure into the depths of your being.




During this 10-day retreat we will be exploring the following:

Liquid Yoga:  

Resting into the unknown and with no expectations we enter the Mystery.  Moving the breath through the body and the body through the breath, our bodies soften, open and expand. We will re-pattern the mind-body system and activate the liquid light body with the breath. We will use music, chanting, ritual & breathwork in our Yoga from within healing practice – relaxing deeply into receptivity – cultivating yin energy and efficiently utilising yang energy.

Deep Breath:

Breathwork is the key to consciousness and the breath is the single most powerful tool we have as a force for waking up on the planet right now. The breath is the most intimate touch of existence…this first beloved caresses us from the inside all the time and yet we hardly notice its presence. Most of us have hardly begun to explore the power of the breath as a tool to deepen our intimacy with ourselves and with existence. There is so much more capacity for aliveness in us, right here in our bodies if we open up more deeply to the breath. Powerful physical, emotional and psychological healing happens spontaneously as a result of conscious connected breathing. When we awaken to the energy within us, we merge with the energy around us – and vice versa. When we melt into the energy that surrounds us, we fall into the energy that is at our core…we die into love, into bliss. Every breath a dolphin takes is conscious and here, the dolphins are our teachers – reminding us that “bliss that is our birthright”.

Subtle Body:  

Using breath sound & movement we explore the pathways that open as we surrender to sexual energy as a vehicle for awakening, deepening sexual awareness and sensation. If our lovemaking is with all of existence as an act of devotion, then our sexual energy is like a rippling blue flame – a cool fire that ripples under our skins and sets every part of our bodies alight. It is clear and lucid. It is expansive and full-bodied. It is quiet and present. It is passionate enough to ignite new life and burn away dead wood. It is exquisitely sensual. When we enter into the rippling blue flame, time disappears, form becomes less dense and we awaken to the beloved in all things.


Accommodation in Tartaruga, Coastal Forest Luxury Tented Camp

Tucked away in the coastal forest canopy right on the beach, the camp offers total privacy. With a maximum capacity of 16 guests, we offer you an exclusive and luxurious wild dolphin swim getaway. Built on wooden platforms, all tents are spacious and airy, fully fitted with en-suite bathrooms, hot water, tea/coffee making facilities, electric fans, white linen and very comfortable beds boasting ‘walk-in’ mosquito nets. Shaded wooden walkways link each tent with the main deck, pool and boma areas.

Two beautiful communal gathering areas, one tucked into the forest canopy and the other over looking the magnificent Indian Ocean, a pool, a boma fire- side area and of course your private balcony at each individual tent promises to make this a simply gorgeous, nature RICH stay.
