About

South West Portugal is the gem of the country offering incredible landscapes, glorious hiking, optional surfing opportunities, delectable seafoods, and gorgeous mountain valleys. Our seven night retreat is nestled in the lush Monta Orada valley on the edge of the Alentejado National Park and Costa Vicentina, arguably the most beautiful spot in the country with its dramatic coastal scenery of cliffs, beaches & abundant fauna including raptors & sea otters.

Our home for the week is an ecological retreat center that boasts its own garden, yoga spaces, charming rooms, and a bio-pool just a 10 minute ride over the hill down to the sea.

October is the perfect month to enjoy their ‘St. Maarten Summer’ weather, still sunny but nice and fresh at night. One last summer fling of the season! Yoga practices will be inspired by the idea of weaving magic into our lives with asana practice and inspiring workshops to help form the path of your dreams.

Yoga retreat highlights include yoga practices daily, two easy/intermediate level hikes, one hour massage, most meals, beach days with optional surf lessons, and a day trip to the capitol of Lisbon for a market tour and cooking class of local gastronomy.

I first encountered Christina and Yoga Adventures Worldwide in October 2015 when I attended the retreat in Morocco. Leading up the retreat I had a million questions and requests and Christina never hesitated to answer them and assist where she could, always with a friendly and enthusiastic mail (even though I think I must have been driving her crazy). I had an amazing time in Morocco, Christina planned everything to perfection. The accommodation was magnificent, the day trips where well thought out and well organised. And of course the yoga was incredible! After the retreat I knew I would definitely see her again and now my next adventure with Yoga Adventures Worldwide is in Cuba. Again Christina has effortlessly assisted with every request, concern and travel arrangements.

I highly recommend booking your next yoga retreat with Yoga Adventures Worldwide and have no doubt that you will find Christina the perfect host.

I had the best time on retreat in Tulum! It exceeded my expectations – everything from the location + accommodations, the yoga with Andrea and the food were exceptional. I traveled alone and loved how the days were thoughtfully planned but gave us lots of free time to explore. Christina and Sofi were awesome to communicate with and made Tulum feel like home. I’d come back in a heartbeat!

I loved the time I spent at Zamas with Yoga Adventures Worldwide. Christina, Sofi and Nina were very welcoming and made it a safe space to be in for 5 days. I traveled solo and was slightly nervous and was welcomed by their friendly faces and immediately felt comfortable. The Zamas hotel was also great and the house was clean and in a central location. The town of Tulum has many great restaurants and shops close by. The retreat schedule was perfect allowing time for 2 yoga classes a day and plenty of free time to do other activities. I highly recommend a retreat with Yoga Adventures and hope to try another retreat location in the future!

My yoga retreat in Tulum was incredible. Such an enlightening fun & soulful experience that its going back on my bucket list. The group of woman running it, from the yoga teachers, Pepper and Nina to the coordinators/admins, Sophi to the owner, Christina are beautiful people who helped make the experience as awesome as it was. Pepper Monroe was our Yoga instructor- a special gift for us as she is such a bright light, sweet skilled and fun! The excursions were wild and intense (in a good way) , well organized, the food was very yummy and the practice & schedule was prefect. Compared to other retreats this was affordable. Highly recommend this yoga retreat, no matter what destination!
