She bases them around the pillars of Movement, Nourishment & Nature. Movement through Yoga, Surf & Hiking. Nourishment with organic & local meals straight from farm to plate and through mindful awareness & wellness. Nature by keeping the retreats close to nature and hosting in the most sustainable & ecological way. Throughout the year on specific dates she welcomes small groups for this amazing experience in a stunning location on the south west coast of the Algarve, Portugal, close to the most beautiful beaches.

Yoga, Surf/Hiking & Nourish Retreat

This retreat is the ultimate getaway. Set in a forested area a stones throw away from the beach. This week will be sure to leave you revitalised & reconnected. Enjoying a superb mix of Iyengar Yoga, surfing the most magical waves of the Algarve or *Hiking a long the stunning Costa Vicentina trails & eating deliciously healthy organic & local meals. The retreat is set up in such a way that each individual can choose what suits them best for their optimum holiday. Either doing Yoga & Surf the whole week or hiking, or maybe learning how to cook during a workshop or going for the ultimate Yoga & Nourish (No surf) package and getting pampered for a week with massages, mindfulness & cooking. Which ever package you choose it will be an amazing week of connection, joy & tranquility.
