OUR SOULSHINE STORY
Built on passion, expertise and a whole heap of love
Soulshine Retreats was founded by Soulla Demetriou in 2013. Since discovering Yoga on a South American adventure, Soulla has been fascinated by the powerful physiological, psychological and spiritual effects a Yoga and Meditation practice can offer. It was the incredible impact that these practices had on her own life that lead her to give up a career in marketing and surrender fully to a beautiful journey of learning and self-discovery.
As someone who suffered from Anxiety and Depression for many years and has navigated the bumpy terrain of a major life overhaul, Soulla has journeyed deeply, and often through the 'shadow side' to explore, experience and discover practices that support us in our pursuit of happiness and peace.
It was through her own journey, the highs and the lows, that the desire for Soulshine Retreats and all that it encompasses was born. She is an ardent believer in cultivating a compassionate approach for taking our happiness and our destiny into our own hands in order to live life fully and joyfully and believes that we all hold the innate potential for healing. Sometimes we simply need someone to lend a supporting hand and guide us.
Soulla holds a deep desire to share the skills that she has learnt on her journey in an utterly digestible way to hopefully help others in their pursuit of peace, fulfilment, joy and happiness. She hopes to provide the skills through her work and that of her dedicated and passionate Soulshine Team to bring positive transformation into the world so that each and every one of us can embrace our full potential and find the happiness and freedom that exists within us all. Quite simply, to shine bright!
