Yoga Retreat in Portugal

Blissful Yoga Retreat in Portugal: Relax, Reconnect, Recharge

This year we offer a yoga retreat that allows you to dive deep into your yoga practice. We’ve designed a retreat program that really provides you with the opportunity to

  • Relax your body and mind
  • Reconnect to yourself, likeminded amazing people and nature
  • Recharge your batteries and replenish your energy

In our retreat house at the Portuguese Silver Coast, only a walk away from the romantic secluded northern beaches of Peniche you find the perfect retreat environment.

From our yoga terrace you have a view of the whole Island of Baleal, the Berlengas Islands and the Ocean. Breath in the Atlantic Ocean breeze and listen to the sounds of the birds and waves crashing while you enjoy blissful yoga classes.

The retreat is held Sunday to Sunday. The weekends are there to arrive, settle in, relax and explore the surroundings. We run our program (also food!) Mondays to Fridays.

Monday to Friday, we start each day with an invigorating, energetic Vinyasa Flow Yoga class. The yoga classes always start with a short meditation practice and pranayama (breathing exercise). Every day we work through the body with a special focus.

After the yoga, a healthy, vegetarian breakfast buffet is waiting for you. Our breakfast is truly yummy homemade with a lot of love and different every day. You can make yourself a lunch pack for the day, if you like. We accommodate for your special diets (lactose-free, vegan, etc).

In the evenings, we offer a gentle Hatha Yoga class with elements of Restorative and YinYoga. We also lead a Yoga Nidra Session.

Monday to Friday, we offer you a healthy, vegetarian breakfast buffet. Our breakfast is truly yummy homemade with a lot of love and different every day. It includes cereal and muesli, a big bowl of fresh made fruit salad, a variety of cheese, baked vegetables and vegan spreads like Hummus or Baba Ganoush. We have coffee and tea for you as well as a fresh juice or smoothie every day. After breakfast, you can make yourself a lunch pack for the day, if you like.

We start each day with an invigorating, energetic Vinyasa Flow Yoga class. We incorporate always some meditation and pranayama, to clean the energetic system of the body and allow the mind to become settled, clear and joyful. You are practicing yoga on a terrific terrace with an ocean view. We are practicing outside, so you can really recharge your batteries with the fresh clean air of the Atlantic west coast.

In the evenings, we offer you a more gentle, meditative yoga class that draws elements from Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and classical Hatha Yoga. We will also guide you into a deep yoga nidra experience on one of the days.

If the weather allows, we invite you for one yoga session to come out to the beach with us and practice to the sound of the waves.

The accommodation for our Yoga retreat is in Peniche, Portugal. We have a beautiful retreat house on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. There is an ocean view from the deck where we will be practicing yoga every morning. The house comes fully equipped with everything you need from bathing towels to cookware. There are single and double rooms available. The beach is only a few minutes walk away and the house also comes with free Wifi. This amazing part of the Silver Coast of Portugal with its stunning landscapes, nice fishing towns and the Surf City Peniche is really an incredible place to spend a holiday.
