Yoga & Meditation Retreat

If you love yoga and want to learn more about it, then look no further! Our yoga and meditation retreat provides a serene environment, located on the untouched coastline of Portugal’s west. Perfect for taking time to really relax and unwind. The daily morning yoga classes give you the opportunity to stretch and open your body.  During our evening meditation classes, we show you different techniques like sound meditation, yin yoga or yoga nidra. Whether you’re just starting yoga or looking to refine your skills, everyone can feel the difference after this week.

Our retreat offers numerous activities throughout the week, such as a day trip to Óbidos, a pretty, medieval town and Nazaré, to see the spot where the biggest waves in the world break, a wine tasting at a local winery and two guided walks.

What is waiting for you?


You always have a private room with private bathroom. Only if you prefer to share a room with a with a friend, family member or partner that you travel with, you can also book a double room.

No, we provide yoga mats and props like blocks, belts, bolsters and blankets. If you prefer to bring your own mat, please feel free to do so.

If you are arriving earlier than 4pm or leaving later than 3pm, we can give you some tips on how to spend the time well rather than hanging out at the airport. There are lockers to leave your luggage, so you can move around more freely. If you spend time before in Lisbon, please come back to the airport for the shuttle, we don’t do pick ups in any other place.

If you arrive later and don’t make it to the shuttle at 5pm please contact us so we can give you tips on how to get here. The main possibilities are a private cab/uber or taking the bus. Please note that arrival at the retreat after 10pm is not possible, since we start the program at 7:30am on Monday morning.

You can find more about this topic in this blog article.

If you are not able to arrive on Sunday you can still join on Monday and will miss a little bit of the program. Airport transfer will then have to be arranged differently and can’t be inlcuded in the price. Please contact us in this case.

Our retreats always run from Sunday to Saturday and we have designed the program to fit well in this 7 day timeframe. Since we are a familiar place with only 5 rooms, so small groups, it is also nicer for the group to stay together for the entire time. Should you have to leave a bit early, please contact us.

Our classes are suitable for beginners. We teach in small groups (less than 10 people), so we can address different levels and needs. You can always approach us, if something isn’t clear or you need help with a pose.

You can book directly through the link under this FAQ section. We require a deposit of around 35% to fix the booking, the remaining amount will be due upon arrival. You can pay in cash (Euro), by bank transfer or via credit card (Visa and Master).

If you must cancel your attendance 30 days prior to the retreat start date you can reschedule or receive a voucher for the entire amount. If you wish a refund of your deposit, we will refund you the amount minus a small service charge (10€) for bookings made directly through our website.

If you cancel less than 30 days prior to the retreat start date, a refund of the money is not possible. You can read all the details in our Terms & Conditions.

We teach Hatha Yoga in the morning, the most ancient yoga style and the “mother” of all other styles. Hatha yoga consists of Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), Mudras (gestures) and bandhas (energy locks) as well as Shatkarma (cleansing techniques). If you want to know more about the differences between Hatha yoga and other popular styles like Vinyasa, this blog article will be useful to you. One morning of the retreat we will also practice aerial yoga, which uses silks hanging off the ceiling to support you in the poses. In the evening we will have one lesson of Yin Yoga, a more meditative form of yoga.
