Enjoy a day learning about the healing benefits of cacao along with consuming it. Your workshop begins with a discussion and opening ceremony, followed by a two hour intuitive yoga session; cacao opens your heart chakra allowing you to connect and understand your body on a much deeper level. We then break for lunch, prepared on site with love, and of course finishing with a ceremonial grade cacao dessert 😋  After lunch we will walk in the forest, mountains, and veggie patch (rest if you wish) before ending our time together with a gong bath with guided meditation.

Your hosts are Jo and Dominic who met the original ‘chocolate shaman’, Keith Wilson, in 2013 and have been importing, selling, and working with his cacao ever since. The pair have been holding cacao ceremonies for more than ten years and know how to guide you through blockages, to step beyond resistance, and into personal alignment.

Jo works the physical body into alignment via yoga (see more information below), with Dominic first growing the food and then preparing it for your lunch. On an energetic level Jo’s guided meditations have supported thousands of people globally, over more than two decades, to transcend mediocrity and addiction, whilst as a professional musician Dominic knows how to release blockages through the vibration of the gong.

Bring an intention to the day; whether that is to release an addiction or pattern of behaviour you are ready to move on from, or to upgrade an area of your life to the next level. You will not leave the same, and be excited about having the knowledge of why it’s actually important to eat chocolate everyday! 

The Chocolate Yoga Workshop travels and can be booked for your venue/event

Jo began teaching yoga and meditation on 6th January 2001 in Bophut, Koh Samui, Thailand where she had a studio (on the roof overlooking Koh Phan-gnan) and clothes shop. She trained in both Thailand and India, and then moved back to the UK where she had studios in North London, Hertfordshire and then Inner Guidance Retreat Centre, Lavenham, Suffolk. It is from there that Jo upped sticks with her husband Dominic and their pets and moved to Spain, where they live off-grid and as self-sufficiently as possible in the forest and mountains of Tarbena campo.

The yoga has come full circle because Jo is once again teaching from her roof, as she started off in Thailand more than 23 years ago 🧘‍♀️
