A Relaxing Yoga Break for Wellness and Self-Care

Our yoga retreats have taken us to yoga centres in Europe, Bali and India, but we are yet to find a place as beautiful and immersive as Cocoon. The 275 acre coastal farm is a magical setting for our 2019 Portugal yoga holiday. It is a place where we can truly reconnect with what makes us human. With a wild beach only 10 minutes away, a freshwater lake on site, and an outdoor and indoor yoga space, the modern yogi is in the optimal environment to reconnect with the timeless space within.

A Yoga Retreat Led by Experienced Practitioners

With almost 30 years’ collective experience in the practices of yoga as well as in the fields of medicine, psychotherapy, and hypnotherapy, Charlene and Christoph are dedicated practitioners of exploring human potential. Their diverse yet complimentary approaches bring together creative, feminine movement, mindfulness, relaxation, and awareness to those who join what is surely one of the best yoga retreats available in 2019. Together, Charlene and Christoph bring a unique approach to your yoga holiday that is currently benefiting World Cup footballers, people in their 80s, medical professionals, social workers, and busy mums. These varied students are linked together by the wish to feel optimally well and in harmony. 

 

​P.S. The lake image is NOT a stock photo but the onsite freshwater lake :-) 

What to Expect from Your Yoga Retreat in Portugal

As experienced and dedicated yoga practitioners, Charlene and Christoph are all-encompassing in their yoga holiday offerings. The yoga practices taught by Charlene and Christoph will include:

 ​An overview of Your Portugal Yoga Break

 

The best yoga retreats make the most of the peace found in nature. The mornings will be situated in the outdoor yoga space whereby you'll pas peacocks on your way, before beginning with meditation and breath work followed by a rejuvenating embodied yoga practice. Some of your yoga break evening sessions will be in the indoor yoga space, with varied practices offered and all focussed upon deep relaxation and introspection that will have a transformative effect on your life beyond the retreat. In all, you will be encouraged to heighten your awareness as your body enters a deeply relaxed way of being. 

Your Portugal Yoga Retreat, Your Home for Summer 2019

Surrounded by breath-taking beauty, our yoga retreat in Portugal is located within one of Europe's last wild coastlines and is an idyll of sustainability and eco-luxury. With its own freshwater lake perfect for swimming, oversized hammocks, situated just 10 minutes from the beach, and close to the fishing town of Zambujiera del Mar, there's plenty of opportunity to explore solo or with the group, connect to nature and escape into daydreams. The lovingly designed rooms are based on 2 sharing each with an en-suite, and all rooms opening onto the courtyard. 

With most of the food grown on the farm, mealtimes are like no other - as though your Portugal yoga holiday could become any more of a haven. Fresh, local, nourishing food is delivered to our tranquil setting where we join to socialise, and enjoy eating together. Including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, there's ample opportunity to experience what Cocoon's cooks have to offer and sample the local produce which includes trying out the on-site wood fired pizza oven!

We believe that this yoga’s yoga retreat is really something special – but don’t just take our word for it, see our testimonials. 

"Just done a weekend with Charlene in the Peak District. It was amazing. I love Charlene's style of yoga - it makes me feel very peaceful and serene and she mixes great movements with a really interesting and flexible approach that focuses on the individual and their needs.She's also fantastic fun and very knowledgeable. I wish I lived closer to her classes because I can't think of a teacher I'd rather learn with." Laura Ellis
