Yoga & Hiking Retreat in Portugal

Our week will kick-off with three nights in Lisbon enjoying the local culture, exploring historical landmarks, and tasting delicious Portuguese food and wine. From Lisbon, we will day-trip to the lovely hill town of Sintra to see ruins of a Moorish castle, incredible villas and uniquely whimsical palaces. Daily yoga sessions will gently support the pace of our travel and compliment the itinerary.

During the second half of our retreat, we will head southwest to Costa Vicentina, the wild, undisturbed destination known for its remarkable cliffs, stunning beaches and crashing waves. Surrounded by this breath-taking nature, our group will settle into four relaxing nights at the renowned and exquisite hotel & restaurant, Herdade da Matinha. From this intimate homestead, we will venture out to hike the beautiful coastline, unwind on the beach, and discover Alentejado National Park. Each day will offer a sweet balance of rest and play, as we enjoy flowing & restorative yoga sessions with plenty of time for self-care by the pool and connecting with one another over garden-crafted meals.
