Wild View Retreat has arisen from the ruins of an abandoned mountain village of Corgas Bravas, in the foothills of the Algarve in Portugal. Wild View Retreat is defined by its spectacular uninterrupted 360° views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains, a Zona De Intervenção Florestal protected for its natural beauty and famous Portuguese cortiça (cork) trees.

On the retreat all guests will be away from the pressures of modern society, isolated in nature embarking on a programme of detoxification, wellness and fitness, working towards restoring health and balance in our lives. You’ll return home feeling brand new and fantastic!

Program

Fasting has been a part of human tradition for many centuries. In the 5th century Hippocrates the Greek ‘Father of Medicine’, recommended abstinence from food to reduce symptoms of illness and boost immunity. In today’s increasingly materialistic and overindulgent society, regardless of our individual faith or non-faith traditions, we can all benefit from fasting from time to time.

Fasting has many health benefits. It provides our overworked digestive system a well-earned rest from near 24/7 breaking down of food all day and night. Cellular energy is diverted to maintenance and repair of other bodily systems. Ultimately caloric restriction, within the limit, detoxifies the body, slows the aging process and gives a significant boost to the immune system and energy levels.

Fasting has many peer reviewed evidence based health benefits:

  • Improving cognitive function, brain health and memory
  • Increasing energy
  • Reducing toxins
  • Improving cardiovascular health, normalising blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Reducing insulin resistance
  • Improving mood and mental health
  • Reducing appetite and food cravings
  • Anti-aging
  • Weight loss
  • Retaining a healthy weight long-term but only as part of a transition to a primarily plant based diet that minimizes processed food

At Wild View Retreat guests are provided 3 delicious juices everyday alongside a warming nutritious soup in the evening. The juices have been carefully designed by our nutritional therapist to support the detox process yet keep nutrient levels sustained to enable daily participation of the fitness and yoga classes. The busy programme of activity is deliberate to keep you distracted while you go through the fast. A daily programme of workshops and talks are provided to support improving dietary and lifestyle habits. When guests’ finish the week they feel renewed and reenergised armed with the tools and techniques to make positive improvements to their lifestyle.

On the last day of the fast guests have the option to break the fast with food samples made during cooking demos under guidance of the nutritional therapist.

What to expect: Yoga, fitness classes, expert nutritious meals or juice fasting, nutritional therapy, guided walks, massage, gentle meditation, swimming, sunbathing, relaxing – it’s a holiday after all!

What not to expect: Alcohol, smoking or indulgent calorific meals. The retreat is adults only and the use of electronic devices and WIFI is restricted to designated places away from communal areas.

We do not follow any specific type of yoga philosophy or spiritual view and adopt an open door policy to all. Please note, due to the type of programmes we run, the Wild View Retreat is not suitable for under 18s.
