Yoga in the Algarve, Portugal 2016

Yoga retreat with Kathryn Beet and Hali Schwartz


August 12-19, 2016

The Venue

Set within a 10 acre estate of orange and almond groves in the wild Algarvian hills of Amancil, our tranquil retreat centre, 45 minutes from Faro and 10 minutes from the idyllic market town of Loule, is far away from the crowds and just 7 km from the Algarves most stunning beaches and coastline.

Quinta Mimosa offers a warm welcome, caring hospitality and delicious, healthy meals in a relaxed, spacious and natural setting. Surrounded by terraces and lawns with distant views to the hills and sea, each of the charming Portuguese farmhouse’s on this expansive property have been comfortably renovated to provide a home away from home feeling with excellent self catering kitchens, lounge areas, private pools and air conditioning.

The spacious and airy Yoga studio is fully equipped with mats, blocks, belts and bolsters and opens out onto a peaceful, walled garden with a beautiful open air practice space.

Our delicious and healthy, daily brunches and dinners are lovingly prepared by Wendy and Elena with much care and skill, always using organic local produce when possible. All meals are vegetarian. Vegan diets, allergies and food sensitivities are catered to with prior notice.
