It’s a yoga retreat... But also a holiday!

All retreats are hosted by Diana and Tânia, they will share their love for their hometown with you. A piece of paradise between mountain, ocean and sky. They’ll show you the stunning region of Algarve (our favorite places not mentioned in guidebooks), and share with you the local traditions that make each of them special. You will experience the Algarve, Portugal´s southern region more authentically with locals.

Our Mission

We don’t believe you need to deprive yourself in a Yoga retreat. In fact we believe that combining wonderful yoga classes with delicious Portuguese meals and mindful experiences is the perfect yoga holiday. Our mission is to create a place where people can relax, recharge and slow down from their fast paced lives. By offering a week in a beautiful location surrounded by nature and the beach on your footstep. We believe in living a healthier, happier & inspired life.
Our mission is to bring a small group of individuals (8-12 persons) from all over the world and all ages together in a beautiful natural setting who feel the same way, and share life experiences. We take care of all the details to give you that magical real-holiday feeling, so you have peace of mind that you’re getting a wonderful break. Our aim is to share joyful moments and develop new deep connections. Imagine beautifully set tables, delicious food and lovely people to share stories with…

““The great benefit of slowing down is reclaiming the time and tranquility to make meaningful connections–with people, with culture, with work, with nature, with our own bodies and minds” ”
