SUNNY YOGA RETREAT IN PORTUGAL

Join us for a cultural immersion week and experience life like a local. We will indulge in all of the self-care practices such as yoga, hiking, soaking up the sun, meditation, and much more…all while enjoying the beautiful salty sea and sunny beaches, adventure activities, and fabulous food!

  

Yoga salutations

Most important, to stay true to the nature of an authentic yoga retreats, we will be taking our yoga practice outdoors. We will take our mats on adventures to the sea, we will stick our toes in the sand and gaze over seaside cliffs during our sun A’s at sunset. We will yoga all over the region and truly soak up the sun on and off our mats.

Activities

This southern region of Portugal is known for its beautiful pottery, laid-back lifestyle, and beginner-friendly ocean swells. Choose from a variety of adventure activities on the water. Or enjoy scenic, coastal walks and breathtaking sunsets from hidden beaches.

Accommodation

Perfectly situated on a hill in a picturesque nature reserve, this large, ecologically-built house grants its occupants sensational views across the valley below through which flows the famous Seixe river.

Moreover, the property contains a tranquil lake, perfect for evening mediations and we are located close to the village of Odeciexe and its gorgeous beaches. Just the perfect balance of ranch and beach!

  

Culture

First of all, Portugal is known for its beaches, sea caves, sprawling views, sand dunes, and quaint villages. Therefore, we will visit the local markets, get our feet wet and sand between our toes. We will also indulge in local seafood and enjoy the famous Vino Verde (Portuguese wine).

  

Gastronomy

Farm to table? Absolutely and quite literally! The eco ranch where we will be staying has it’s own delicious supply of fresh fruits and veg that our professional chef duo will utilize to prepare quality and delicious foods! Alfie and Elle, brother/sister team from the UK, have extensive experience in the culinary arts. Since Elle is a local to the area, she knows where to get all of the best ingredients to keep us well fed and fulfilled while on our adventures!
