The Fluidity Retreat:

Somatic Movements, Yoga, Breathwork and Wild Swimming Retreat.

Tuesday 24th June – Tuesday 1st July 2025 (7 nights / 8 days)

Let’s speak about your practice during the week in Galicia…

Moving, Breathing, Meditating, Swimming and Revitalising

Summer is the ‘Yang’ season, embodying expressions, warm energy, vibrance, fluidity, and movement – a time to embrace life fully!

The ‘Fluidity Program’ is crafted to facilitate interaction with the air, water, and fire elements, occasionally grounding us with the earth for stability and calmness.

We gently expand the heart and lungs, our bodies and consciousness through expressive body movement methods, yoga, breathwork, and meditation, fostering gentle energetic stimulation, openness, and a feeling of space!

To balance the vigour of summer, we incorporate gentle and calming practices for cooling down and resting our nervous system, which are ideal for hot, humid, and bustling summer days.

For the enjoyment of our open water swimmers and retreat participants, Centro Punta de Couso, located just ten minutes from secluded beaches with calm waters, extends an invitation to experience the freedom of movement on both land and in the water.

This magical venue provides the perfect summer setting to embrace the elements of nature and self-being.

This is the perfect way to reconnect with nature, create a sense of vitality within us, and feel purely rested and rejuvenated.

This program is about bringing a smile to your lips!

The retreat program is a journey from settling into your room to returning home feeling rejuvenated and smiling!

Why have we chosen Punta de Couso for your stay?

“Centro Punta de Couso” has a very special place in Laurent’s heart.

Noted musician Jacomina Kistemaker owns this charming house and sits on the beautiful Galician coast in Spain.

This idyllic setting offers a true haven away from the outside world and all its obligations, giving guests a rare opportunity to explore personal growth and self-healing without distraction.

Centro Punta de Couso, therefore, offers the ultimate retreat experience.

Located at the tip of Morrazo Peninsula in South West Galicia, Spain, this venue offers stunning views and access to the beach, forests and mountains of the rugged Atlantic coast.

Galicia is very much part of Europe’s Celtic fringe. This is definitely a place to reconnect with yourself and everything around you.

An environment where one can find the seclusion, peace, silence and serenity to go deeper and where the energy of the place “does half the job”.

A place that invites you to stop and reconnect with the essence of life, a place to come together!

The Morrazo peninsula offers fantastic hiking paths along the coast.
