Overcame my fear and started my own business

"I did the coaching program with Eva and loved it! Our coaching journey helped me to keep walking my own path, overcome my fears, leave a toxic work environment and realize my business idea to improve corporate social responsibility.

Eva was supportive, had lots of good input, and put me pack on the right track- the one where I follow my values."

Federica Suess, Co-Founder Etika


Meet your coach: Eva Eulenstein

I am Eva. A global citizen with German and Spanish roots. Since spending a social year in Brasil after high school, I have a deep connection to the Portuguese culture and visited Brasil and Portugal many times. I cannot wait to show you my favorite places in the beautiful Algarve. 


As a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), I support empathic women with lots of clarity and courage to break free from the traditional 9 to 5 hamster wheel and to create a fulfilling out-of-the-box work life. 


I am creating this retreat to offer you a safe and inspiring environment to finally meet face-to-face again, build a supportive tribe, and create lots of incredible memories. 

Everything I organize has a personal touch and comes with lots of heart and positive intention.

Here you can find out more about my personal story and professional journey. 

Meet your yoga teacher: Berta Couto

Hi, I am Berta. Originally from Portugal, I traveled a lot and became a yoga teacher in the motherland of Yoga, India, where I deepened my practice of Yoga and knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine. 


My teaching style is the result of a symbiosis between my own regular practice of Yoga, years of traveling around Asia and Central America, and my experience as a nurse.


At the moment, I dedicate my lifetime teaching Yoga and working as Ayurvedic Therapist in Portimão, following the path of Unconditional Love.


I am a true believer that through the regular practice of Yoga, combining it with contact with nature, it's possible to make life a seed of what we would like to see grow in the world inside and out of us.

I look forward to creating a unique, healing experience with you!
