We are bringing The Salt Sisterhood Yoga & Wild Swimming retreat to the azure waters of the Algarve! Come with us to Portugal's southernmost coastline and discover glittering emerald coves, stunning natural rock formations and water temperature so perfect it'll wash calm over you without taking your breath away! The Algarve enjoys 360 days of sunshine per year, with Spring and Autumn being the most beautiful of all times to visit due to the lingering warmth of both the sun and sea. You will stay in our intimate villa nestled in the heart of the Algarve just a short 10 minute drive away from some of Portugal's most beautiful beaches, eat delicious and freshly prepared meals made by our chef using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, enjoy blissful yoga and meditation and of course daily trips to the sea where you are free to enjoy the water (and sun!) in whichever way you choose to - It's your retreat...

Yoga & Wild
Swimming Retreat,
Portugal

 


YOGA
 

We will practice yoga together each day. Your teacher and host will guide you through these practices with a compassionate approach, always encouraging you to rest when you need to and look after your body - be kind to yourself! Whether you are fairly new to yoga or have been practicing for years, your teacher will be there to guide you through the alignment of the postures and hold space for your practice. This is your retreat, so if at any point you feel you would rather rest or take part in another activity at the villa then you are free to enjoy your time however you wish to.

SWIM TRIPS
 

Each day of our retreat we will discover a new and stunning swimming spot in the local area. Transport will be provided and our swim guide and qualified lifeguard will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and to make your swims both safe and fun - you can meet our team here. We will provide you with beach towels and there are facilities at our casa for washing and drying your towels which you are welcome to use. Our retreat was inspired by a book called Blue Mind by marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols - written about the remarkable effects of water on our health and well being. Even just being near to the water has an almost immediate and profound effect on us.

FOOD

 

Our in-villa retreat chef will prepare 3 healthy and delicious vegetarian meals per day using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. On your day of arrival there will be dinner and on your departure day there will be breakfast for our final meal all together. We cater to your individual dietary requirements - just let us know.
 

LOCATION
 

Our retreat villa is a beautiful and intimate home located near the southernmost coast of Portugal in the Algarve, within easy reach of Faro Airport and just 10 minutes from some of the country's most stunning stretches of coastline. You will feel an immediate sense of calm as soon as you arrive at our tranquil casa, surrounded by beautiful views and typical Portuguese sights such as fresh lemons hanging from the trees and softly swaying giant palms. Soak up the sun or float in our swimming pool during your free time, or take a walk around the luscious gardens surrounding our villa.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?
 

- 5 nights accommodation at our tranquil villa

- Delicious and nourishing seasonal vegetarian meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared by our own retreat chef. If you require vegan options or have any other dietary requirements or allergies we will be happy to accommodate you - just let us know when booking.

- Daily yoga & meditation with your teacher who will guide you safely through your practice. We will enjoy both flowing energetic yoga as well as more restorative stillness practices and meditation during our classes. All classes are optional and we encourage you to retreat the way you want to. In order to enjoy the retreat to the fullest we do recommend that you already have a basic yoga practice before you attend. If you are unsure about what level of fitness you might need in order to make the most out of the activities on offer at this retreat please read our FAQ page.

- Daily trips to discover stunning swim coves and golden sands in the local area where you can choose to swim or just sit and soak in the beautiful sunshine. There are many parts of the Algarve where swims are tide and conditions dependent, we take care of all of this planning for you so all you need to worry about is which swimsuit to wear! Please be aware that the Algarve is a popular holiday destination and so we cannot guarantee any totally empty beaches.

"I had an amazing time at the Salt Sisterhood retreat in Portugal! The accommodation was really high end, just beautiful. The food was incredible and plentiful, and my food allergy was dealt with really professionally, I felt very confident that I was taken care of. The yoga was wonderful, I really enjoyed the classes. And finally I was so appreciative of the two life guards during the swimming sessions. I'm not a strong swimmer, but enjoyed the swims very much. The coastline and beaches we went to swim were carefully chosen, stunning and the schedule of activity vs rest was perfect. Thank you!"
