Our retreats are a refined retreat experience where all aspects of natural health are addressed. Expect your body to become lean, strong, and flexible, as your mind becomes calm, clear, and present. You are simply required to show up, be present, and allow the experience to unveil your inherent potential.
Guests are supported by our team of professional teachers who assure safety and enjoyment. Our guests frequently report improved mood, sharper thinking, better sleep, lower blood pressure, an improved direction in life, prolonged weight-loss, and even the lifting of depression.
Our team is the magic ingredient that makes your Sattva experience unique. We are a select group of guides, athletes, and educators.
- From our first step onto the mat, we are given the opportunity to look into the mirror of ‘the self.’ The clarity of this mirror affects the reflection that we see and strongly influences our behaviours. During our retreats, you will learn to clarify your mind-body connection with a focus on yoga and its practices. You will be challenged and supported by the playful and insightfulness of our teachers.
- Our all-inclusive retreats tap into nature, nutrition, mindfulness, yoga, and functional movement to jumpstart your health. All fitness levels are welcome.
- Our comfortable, luxurious and nurturing accommodation is available in a wide range of different options for your convenience.
- Sattva offers holistic health solutions to the anxiety, stress and numerous other challenges posed by the ever-changing world. Imagine a place where you can reconnect with your inner self and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit surrounded by nature.
On a 275 acre farm situated on the breathtaking Atlantic coast of Portugal.
It is minutes from the simple fishing village of Zambujiera do Mar, in the Alentejo region, which is known for its long stretches of untouched coastline, and charming white-washed villages.
From Lisbon, the retreat is around two hours drive south (from Faro, it is slightly closer).
Cocoon is located in the coastal Alentejo region. Also known as The Costa Vicentina, much of the Southwest coast of Portugal is protected by a natural reserve. This means that development stays constrained, with traditional architecture + small farms dotting the land. The nearest town is the charming Vila Nova de Milfontes. The Vicentine Coast Natural Park runs about 100 km down the coast. The preserved nature has a strong + wild character here, creating landscapes of breathtaking majesty. The coast is ideal for swimming, surfing, and world-class hiking along the gorgeous sandstone bluffs.
All meals are included and the meals are incredible, including strong coffee, herbal tea and spring water
We believe that a nourishing meal and a delicious feast don’t need to be exclusive of one another. Our food is local, with most of our produce coming from either our property or a nearby farm.
The indoor shala is light filled and has enough windows and doors for the air to circulate freely. The floor is hand-made traditional Portuguese Santa Catarina tiles, which are both beautiful and a joy to practice on.
The larger outdoor shala has wood floors, and is shaded by a handful of old growth pines. The outdoor shala has no walls, and is a 3-5 minute walk from the house. It’s especially wonderful for morning practice, as the fog rolls in.
The fabulous Praia do Cavaliero, with it’s sandy beach, is 12 minutes drive.
