"Quieting the mind." It may seem like a simple task, but in reality, it can be quite challenging.
Imagine if you could make your own wellness the focal point of your vacation. By doing so, you give yourself the opportunity to fully immerse in a program specifically designed to help you reconnect with yourself.
Picture yourself engaging in transformative experiences such as yoga and meditation, as well as taking leisurely nature walks in one of the most breathtaking landscapes in Portugal - the Serra de Aires e Candeeiros Nature Park. Here, you can discover a sense of peace, tranquility, and harmony, allowing you to return to your daily life with a renewed sense of energy and determination. You will feel simultaneously rejuvenated, inspired, and relaxed.
Each retreat is unique, even if you return to the same setting. The other participants and your current state of mind will never be the same again. Attending a yoga retreat will always result in something special, and each retreat will be different as you continue to evolve inside to whom you truly are.
So why wait? Embrace the power of mindfulness and embark on a journey that not only nourishes your mind, body, and soul but also brings a sense of balance and serenity into your life.

End of the Retreat 


The program is indicative and subject to adaptations according to the group.

We lovingly prepare every detail to warmly welcome you

The retreat will take place in Minde, a dreamy place amidst the nature of the Natural Park of Serra Aires e Candeeiros

The house is set in a small forest full of native species: a hundred-year old oak tree, ash trees and fig trees, in the shade of which you can relax on one of the hammocks, read a good book or listen the melodies of blackbirds, hoopoes and thrushes.  Rebuilt from a family house, it mixes the ancestral roots of a village with almost 900 years and a modern simplicity that will make you feel welcomed as if you were at home. With all the comfort and amenities it is the ideal place to nourish the body and mind.
