Reconnect with nature and your inner self in Portugal. This Algarve yoga retreat offers a perfect blend of yoga, wellness, adventure, and self-discovery in one of the most enchanting locations. Located in the Algarve, Portugal’s southernmost region, our home for the week is surrounded by rolling hills, cork oak forests, and dramatic cliffs overlooking the sea. The gorgeous circular, light-filled yoga shala will inspire and support our practice and connection with nature while the cozy and simple rooms will offer a genuine retreat from life’s fast pace. Enjoy delicious and healthy cuisine and ample unstructured time to enjoy the beaches and explore the surrounding area. Optional free time activities will include hiking and nature walking, surfing, standup paddleboarding, scuba diving, horseback riding, reading and lounging in a hammock, spa treatments, and (for those with a rental car) exploring nearby towns and villages.
