Join Chia Retreats for a healing and rejuvenating retreat in a stunning location in Northern Portugal. As the summer slowly draws to an end, come escape and enjoy days of sunshine together, leaving you set for a wonderful autumn. You will immerse yourself in nature, taking time to nurture yourself on all levels - body, mind, and spirit.
The retreat will take place in a private manor house, which dates back to the 17th century with recent reconstruction, bringing you all the comforts of modern contemporary life. This rural property is set in 16 acres of gorgeous, green, and natural scenery.
The property includes comfortable en-suite bedrooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis court, and a lake. Recently, a pavilion was built near the swimming pools and surrounded by gardens to provide a dedicated place for your daily yoga practice.
During this retreat, Jess will be your yoga teacher, she’s an ISHTA yoga teacher - ISHTA means individual and this retreat will be all about you!

The yoga program will be carefully designed to lead you deeper and deeper into your practice and is suitable for all levels of experience.
Every morning, you will practice a mindful Vinyasa flow. These long and healing sessions will give you time to connect to yourselves in a way you just don’t get at home. They will be just the right balance between effort and surrender. Each session will incorporate breathwork and yoga Nidra or meditation.
Every afternoon, there will be a deeply restoring Yin and Restorative session. These slower sessions allow healing on a much deeper level and are the perfect antidote for those with busy lives and minds. Each session will incorporate breathwork and yoga Nidra or a meditation.
