Summer Solstice Eco Retreat in Southern Portugal with Christy Brown

About This Event

On a nature reserve with dramatic cliffs overlooking the sea where sun-kissed southwestern Europe sinks into the Atlantic, join Christy for a summer solstice week devoted to rejuvenating body, mind, and spirit and cultivating health and happiness.  In a region enriched by the beauty of nature, fresh ocean air, and quaint whitewashed villages, this seven-night retreat will include healing yoga and meditation practice, delicious and healthy cuisine, and ample unstructured time to enjoy the beaches and timeworn charm of the surrounding area.

Each day Christy will offer slow-moving but strong all-levels Vinyasa Yoga, restorative but deep Yin Yoga, meditation and pranayama—as an opportunity to turn inward, connect deeply with ourselves, and cultivate highest physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

Our home for the week will be an eco-chic retreat center with breathtaking views and nature-inspired elegant design in the hills of the Algarve.  The gorgeous circular, light-filled yoga shala with radiant flooring will inspire and support our practice and connection with nature while the cozy and simple rooms will offer a genuine retreat from life’s distractions and fast pace.

Optional free time activities will include hiking and nature walking, surfing, standup paddleboarding, scuba diving, horseback riding, reading and lounging in a hammock, spa treatments, and (for those with a rental car) exploring nearby towns and villages.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
