Feeling insecure and struggling to find your self-worth? Conflicting feelings of anger or frustrations? You need a retreat with a difference; you need Alpas. Alpas is the retreat with a difference that makes a difference. They will help you eradicate these issues and find your value and assist in manifesting the life you feel you truly deserve without you feeling pitied, judged, or belittled.
The accommodation is on acres of private land with just 13 en-suite luxury rooms. Therefore, you can benefit from being amongst this closed gated community and away from the traffic, you are simply embracing nature.
Within the grounds is a luxury salt water swimming pool, perfect for that early morning cleanse after a deeply enriching meditation and energy clearing session or a sunset beach yoga class.
The grounds are so huge and set high up in the mountains of Portugal, that you will have first class, epic views and you will see as far as Lisbon. You are surrounded by such beauty and peace, you will engage in long spiritual walks on the grounds itself.
There is nothing you will not like about your experience here. You will be pampered and treated to massages, healthy meals, and workshops and the staff will do everything to take care of you and make you feel special.
You will walk away a different person, with new grounding and coping mechanisms when facing challenging times in just six days. There is no better way to do this, than in the gorgeous, tranquil mountains of Sesimbra in Portugal.
You will be surrounded by quiet villages like Azeitao, which is famous for its wine region and locally produced cheese. You also have Arrabida, which is known for its superb beaches, parks, seafood, and bars.
It can be a lonely place when trying to deal with life's problems that weigh you down and being told that it will take years of therapy to erase them. Alpas can kick you off to a phenomenal start by engaging with their mindful, wellness, and neuro-linguistic programming coaches, psychotherapists, and yoga instructors to really find the root of your issues and eradicate them in just five days.
Your energy can be revived and you will find the confidence to really push forward while being pampered and spoiled rotten. The issues you had walking into the retreat will be no more by the time you walk out on day five. Alpas Retreat takes only 12 people on their retreats as they like the setting to be intimate and for you to feel comfortable in luxury and amongst friends. You will feel free to let loose each of your emotions, surrounded by people you can trust.
You can also take advantage of the one-on-one coaching sessions with each of the therapists freeing yourself from anxiety. Enjoy morning and evening meditations, daily yoga, and workshops that will teach you the necessary easy practices that can help you feel more positive, manifest your wishes and dreams, and continue them in your busy everyday routines.
