We help you with all the above and much more in 7 days jam-packed with twice-a-day yoga, workshops on inversions, arm balances, and backbends, nutrition guidance, fresh plant-based meals made with local, organic ingredients based on holistic nutrition principles.

Let us take you on a journey into health and deep connection with yourself! Our biggest goal is to impact and inspire you way beyond the experience of our retreats. 

We want to leave you feeling your best, strong possible self!

All in a stunning villa in the beautiful Algarve, Portugal with a big pool, sun beds, jacuzzi, and sauna, to pamper you up after a long day of practicing and moving.

This 7-day invigorating retreat will both challenge you and restore your balance, cultivate inner peace, and nourish your body from the inside out.

Daily Itinerary

We're going to guide you through a full Ashtanga practice to start the day followed by more creative, strong Vinyasa Flows in the afternoon. We designed two special workshops for you to really step up your practice of inversions, arm balances, and backbends. On workshop days instead of a second strong practice, we will guide you through a deeply relaxing restorative sunset flow.

After your morning practice, fuel your body with a delicious brunch consisting of whole foods and superfoods to boost your energy.

After brunch, you will have free time to rest, head to the beach explore the beautiful surroundings of the Algarve, go hiking, stroll through the village, or just relax by the pool.

In the afternoon we will have some healthy snacks waiting for you (think superfood smoothies, home-made energy bars, vegan banana bread, fresh fruit) as a pick-me up before your second practice or workshop.

As the perfect ending to a full day, you'll be served a delicious vegetarian 3-course dinner with local ingredients. Take advantage of having Teresa & Gloria around during meal times to ask all your questions about nutrition. They are always happy to share nutrition tips and knowledge and inspire others to a healthier and happier lifestyle.

 Accommodations 

Our beautiful private villa, with a stunning pool overlooking the landscape, invites you to relax and get plenty of time under the warming Portuguese sun.

There is also a jacuzzi, a sauna, and lots of outside space to relax and have a chat with the other yogis.

The location is in the middle of nature but close to many attractive spots:

Portimao is a 10-minute drive away. This is the starting point for beautiful walks on the cliffs or on the beach. In Portimao itself, you can enjoy strolling and shopping. Portimao is also ideal for a day of sunbathing or swimming in the sea.

Monchique, a 20-minute drive away, is located just below the highest point of the Algarve. The village is characterized by streets with small stones that wind up toward the mountain. It is a beautiful village with many 18th and 19th-century houses.

Lagos, a 30-minute drive away, is an attractive, pleasant coastal town. Whoever walks into the center notices the vibrant dynamics of a thriving city. You will find nice terraces everywhere, there is a beautiful boulevard and numerous events are organized during the season.

Silves, a 20-minute drive, was the capital of the Algarve during the Arab occupation. It is to this that the town owes its mansions and its red castle which is worth discovering.

In the area there is also a beautiful unique pink lake!

Other possible activities: sup, surf, horseback riding, mountain biking, the list goes on. You will not get bored here :)
