Nature, yoga & meditation retreats in Portugal

A week to relax, meditate and connect in silence with nature in the beautiful SW of Algarve Portugal. The venue where the meditation retreat will be held is set in the wonderful national park Costa Vicentina just 3 km from the beautiful unspoiled coastline and beaches.

Connect with your true self

This is a week to enjoy, reset and relax. A week to get to know your real self and to become in complete peace with it, a week to go in the nature and connect with the peace of nature and beautiful landscape of this area. In this week you will have lots of time for your self to explore the beautiful surroundings of national park St. Vicente in the Algarve. Wether you are beginner in meditation or you have meditated for years already, this is a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and the mind and to work on our self. In the mornings there will be silent times for everyone to really connect with silence and peace within.

A week of peace, health and nature

The nature & meditation retreat in Portugal is a retreat to enter into silence to rest the mind, to regain focus and consciousness and to connect with nature. Take a week to process, reset and become aware of the peace within in a wonderful environment.

There will be 3 – 5 meditation sessions daily and a yoga session. There is enough time in between to enjoy the wild natural surroundings around the venue. Some meditation sessions will be guided, others silence and during the week there will be a deeper explanation about the techniques of meditation and the workings of the mind ….

The Location

The Life Awareness Program yoga retreats are set in the wonderful national park of St. Vicente and will be held in the Yoga Villa in Vila do Bispo in the SW Algarve. The yoga venue is a large Villa with a lush garden that has a swimming pool, a 50m2 yoga deck in the garden and plenty of space inside to do yoga when the weather is not so good by the fireplace. The villa is located 3km from the wild coastline and beautiful beaches and is close to the picturesque town Vila do Bispo. In this week you will have plenty of time to either go to the beach, do wonderful hikes in the national Park or enjoy the villa and sit by the pool.
