“The Retreat was better than I can ever describe with words. The whole experience was full of joy, love, power, peace and beauty – and it made everyone in the group blossom. Anke is such an inspirational teacher and a wonderful person. A true gift for body and soul. I can’t wait to go back.”

NOURISH your body and soul:

A balanced diet full of nutrients is crucial for a retreat and when you practice a lot of Yoga. We love nourishing meals and know that the food is the fuel, that moves your body. 


Shine Yoga and hiking in Portugal 2020



Location and surroundings:

Portugal has a special grounded and down-to-earth energy. I am in love with the wild and nearly untouched country… particularly in June with its usually warm temperatures that add extra magic to the retreat.  I have spent a lot of time here and know the area very well. Summer is the nicest time for a yoga retreat in Portugal 2020. This is why I have chosen to host this nourishing retreat here, in this perfect location in Ericeira.




Sintra is a small and very picturesque town full of castles and the vibe of another century and it is located in the hills surrounded by the most beautiful nature. You will feel like you have stepped into a fairy tale surrounded by colorful castles, amazing buildings and endless gardens. Unesco World Heritage since 1995.

What can I say of Lisbon, one of our favorite cities with so much charm and hidden gems in every corner, a place that invites you to walk and get lost into their streets, with countless viewpoints and places where you can breathe and feel the true life of Lisbon.


AND NOW. You wonder how you can be part of it?

Send me an e-mail for further details & prices. Rooms are limited and all individual. First come first served.


Let’s go where the wild things are, feel alive, happy and shine…
