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. That´s why our chef will pay special attention in preparing delicious dishes with fresh and local products.
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 autumn with the golden, late summer light and usually warm temperatures that add extra magic to the retreat. I have spent a lot of time here and know the area very well. Late summer is the nicest time for a yoga retreat in Portugal 2019. This is why I have chosen to host this nourishing retreat here, in this perfect location between Lisbon, Sintra and Ericeira.
Sintra is a small and very picturesque city close to our retreat center and 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, relax, connect and shine…
