We will be staying at a Casa located in Olhao, a town in the Algarve region of Southern Portugal, known for its picturesque streets, local markets, and easy access to the Outlying Islands.
This 5 night / 6 day yoga & wellness retreat is all about aligning ourselves with the energy of the Summer Solstice for a week of celebration and renewal.
We will offer daily outdoor rooftop yoga classes with meditation, pranayama, and journaling, Ayurvedic workshops on routine, rituals, food as medicine, and how to live a balanced, healthy and happy life, and delicious plant-based meals made with local ingredients.
In addition, we'll connect with nature by hiking, swimming, exploring the Outlying Islands, and spending time outside to simply appreciate the beauty of our world.
Carole will guide you through this retreat from her own life-experience, deep studies & personal practice of Yoga Philosophy, Asana, Pranamaya, Meditation, Ayurveda, and Lifestyle Coaching.
Come and celebrate with us the summer solstice, a time of abundance, joy and renewal, and create unforgettable memories. Book your spot now and let us help you partake in an unforgettable retreat in Olhao, Portugal!
Welcome to Portugal's Authentic Gem
We love Olhao for it's down to earth salty charm, warm and hospitable people, creative community, cobbled streets and faded grandeur.
The best way to get to know Olhao is to walk out the front door and wander down to the waterfront. Getting lost in the twisted network of cobbled streets along the way is part of the fun. There is usually a surprise or two to enjoy along the way. When you get to the sea front, there are the fabulous markets at the water's edge (fish to the right, fresh fruit/veg & meats to the left) and a host of restaurants, cafes and bars to relax in along the way.
PLUS, not to visit at least one of the Islands (Armona, Culatra, Farol or Deserta) would be criminal! They each have a distinct feel but each one has beautiful unspoilt beaches, and wonderful low key restaurants/beach bars where you will happily away the day. The islands are easy to get to: you can either take a small ferry which runs multiple times per day during the summer or a river taxi. They all go from the same place, just 150m east along the waterfront from the market.
