October 27 - November 2, 2019
Join Sarah Bond and Alaine Portner for another amazing yoga and mindfulness retreat, this time in Algarve, Portugal.
It is a region enriched by the strength of its’ nature, where the high cliffs overlook the ocean, filling the air with a fresh breeze, spreading myths and tales of fishermen, sailors and pirates, sunken ships and great fisheries.
In the middle of nowhere, where south-western Europe sinks into the Atlantic. A perfect destination to unplug, relax, and appreciate the beauty of this world.
