Who is this retreat for?

  • For those who understand the importance of self-love, but need a little structure and guidance to make this habitual.
  • Real people: people who love yoga, a healthy, active lifestyle, nature, wild beaches, and also love relaxing in the sun and be lazy by the pool or chill in the wellness area.
  • Those who want to level up; mentally, emotionally, energetically, and spiritually.
  • Those who want to connect to their own divine self and take time to reflect about their one and only precious life. Those who are curious to explore more about their mind and body connection, and how this is holding them back to thrive fully and shine from within.
  • Those who need some timeout, more time in nature, and a shift out of their head and back into their body.
  • Those ready to invest in their wellbeing and want to learn more about how to use the mind / body connection, asanas, and overall explore more in their personal practice than in their usual 60-minute class in the local studio or in front of Youtube.
  • Those who feel like their spark has fizzelt out lately and are tired of too many open chrome tabs and would rather make a shift or jumpstart their energy / attitude.
  • Those who are looking for inspiration, new friends, a great supporting community.
  • Those who need a detox (digital - physical - mental). Life is just sometimes too overwhelming and we need to rest and just be to recharge our batteries.
  • Those who want to simply relax, spoil themselves in this gorgeous Portuguese house in a perfect location, treat themselves with amazing food, the luxury of being taken care of, adventures in nature, culture, Sintra, or yoga and fun in Ericeira, and so much more.

Retreat location

This Shine-Yoga Retreat will be in a dream Retreat Villa in central Portugal. Only 40 mins from Lison International Airport and 8 mins from the Ocean. Located in the national park, surrounded by grassland, sunset, and ocean view. Perfect located between Ericeira, Sintra, Playa Grande or famous sights like Cabo the Roca or Praia do Ursa (rated into the list of top 10 beaches in Portugal).

The much-loved house is exclusive for our group. It offers private or shared rooms, a little gym, amazing views, a jacuzzi, a sauna, an indoor fireplace, several cute chill-out areas, and a huge outside area with a swimming pool. Two dedicated areas to practice Yoga (inside and outside). A surf school is connected to the villa management and those who want to surf can book lessons or rent boards. Get immersed in this Boho Style home and feel like a wellness warrior in no time.

Portugal has a special grounded and down-to-earth energy. Shine-Yoga Retreats is in love with the wild and nearly untouched country, particularly in June with its usually warm temperatures that add extra magic to the retreat. Summer is the nicest time for a yoga retreat in Portugal, which is why the wonderful retreat is hosted here, in this perfect location in an exclusive retreat villa between Ericeira and Sintra.


One of our favorites is the surfer's paradise village of Ericeira, with a perfect mix of tradition and surf culture. it has become the hip spot amongst surf/yogi and digital nomads who love the good vibes. Nice beaches, coastal hikes, and endless sunsets over the ocean are a must in Ericeira.


Sintra is a very picturesque town, full of castles and the vibe of another century It is located in the hills surrounded by the most beautiful nature. You will feel like you have stepped into a fairy tale surrounded by colorful castles on mountain tops, endless gardens, and endless views over the horizon. It has been listed as UNESCO World Heritage since 1995.
