" Breathe and release "
Yoga Retreat with Joan Hyman
Ericeira, Portugal

Fall is known as the season of change and what better way to prepare for change then by hitting the reset button on a yoga retreat!

Join Joan Hyman and Shama Retreats in Portugal, next to the beautiful beaches of Ericeira.

Enjoy the chance to reset by spending time in exquisite nature, practicing yoga and meditation twice a day with a renowned teacher.

Delight with vegan, organic cuisine, rest in an exclusive and relaxing villa. Discover some of Portugal’s most divine beaches in between practices.
These retreats transform one’s being and elevate your energy physically, mentally, and spiritually. If we all took the time to retreat, the world would be a more peaceful place.

Joan will lead you in deep slow daily morning practice that will wake you up on every level! In the evening, Joan will guide you through a practice that winds you down and workshop postures and techniques helping you to understand how to personalize your yoga practice better. In the late evening, you will be immersed in silent meditation, guided relaxation and energy healing practices with Paloma Dorado to experience the peace and the stillness within ourselves

The daily program will be enriched with trips to the most special natural places and trekkings out of the turistic tracks, organized by us with care and love, to allow you to discover this beautiful region of Portugal without having to plan, prepare, think how to reach each spot or pay any extra.

We will feel the healing power of nature , that help us to integrate the positive and new mindset that yoga can bring into our daily life.

This is the third time that we organize and host a retreat with Joan and we know we will have some unique and nourishing days.

Experience with us this great way to reconnect to a quiet peaceful place inside as the busy-ness of the fall seasons begins to roll in.
