A yoga retreat is an incredible opportunity to take your yoga practice deeper. Retreats create a fully immersive experience so you can forge a distraction-free connection with yourself and your practice. 

Portugal is one of Europe’s best retreat destinations because of its temperate climate and abundance of nature. Warm salty air, cork-tree covered landscapes and tropical beaches create an ideal setting for a yoga retreat. Fresh local produce and affordable price points are the cherry on top.  

Each yoga retreat offers something different and unique, and the right one for you depends on your personal preferences. Some offer more traditional yogic experiences, including long meditation practices, alcohol-free and vegetarian menus, and even vows of silence. Others offer a more contemporary interpretation of the yoga practice, and may include other forms of mindful movement such as Surfing or Hiking. 

Fortunately, many retreats take place in Portugal, so there is an opportunity of yogis of all levels and schools of practice to enjoy. Below is a list of some of the best yoga retreats in Portugal- all of which are led in English.
