Welcome to Portugal

We host our surfing and yoga retreat in Portugal at Cocoon; a 275-acre coastal farm specially designed to be an inspiring and magical place to come and disengage from the frantic pace of your day-to-day life. 

With a flock of goats, resident peacocks and a wild swimming lake nearby, Cocoon is a wonderful space to dedicate time to yourself. Our retreat offers a range of fitness and wellness activities along with independent time to relax, creating the perfect atmosphere for transformation.

The farm’s proximity to the fabulous Praia do Malhão and Praia Cavaliero means guests can spend time learning to surf and paddleboard, as well as participating in yoga, pilates and breathwork sessions. If you want to explore the area further, you can cycle along the coast to the nearby fishing village Zambujiera do Mar or hike along the famed Costa Vicentina trail.

There are eleven elegant twin or triple rooms on the farm which look out onto an outdoor courtyard, offering clean and simple spaces to rest and reflect. Spend your free time around the property reading in a hammock or freshwater swimming and come together with the group to enjoy the indoor and outdoor yoga and meditation spaces.


You have access to these two stunning yoga shalas. Each shala comfortably fits 24 students. The indoor shala is light-filled and has enough windows and doors for the air to circulate freely. The floor is hand-made traditional Portuguese Santa Catarina tiles, which are both beautiful and a joy to practice on. The outdoor shala has wood floors and is shaded by a handful of old-growth pines. The outdoor shala has no walls and is a 3-5 minute walk from the house. It’s especially wonderful for morning practice, as the fog rolls in. And all is a complete array of high-quality yoga props.
