We will invite you in the beautiful surroundings of the South coast of Portugal for a luxurious yoga retreat.

The afternoon sessions will always be completed with Yoga Nidra. This is a healing and powerful practise for deep relaxation and to improve sleep.
Food & Ayurveda
Food is the lush part of the week. Colours, spices, tastes and delicious food will be served. You will learn the principles of the Ayurvedic system and how to use these in your daily life. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic approach where yoga, nutrition and massages are combined to give health and wellbeing. The elements and constitutions will be explained during an Ayurvedic talk and cooking workshop. All vegetarian meals are based on the Ayurvedic principles and the six tastes. We invite you to explore, discover and dive into this beautiful health system.
Music & Movement
In this week you will find yourself calm, peaceful and relaxed. As a contrast to your busy life, this literally is an escape to tranquility and pure joy. New in our retreats is a workshop with 5rhythm DJ Jup Jansonius. We will move our bodies in connection with the elements and the rhythms of life. Jup studied with Gabriela Roth, founder of the 5rhythms dance.
Open your heart and discover the true joy inside.
