A Figs on the Funcho yoga retreat to relax, reconnect and explore your inner spirit in beautiful southern Europe
Yoga Retreat | With Coral Chambers and Cheryl Smith
Indulge in new tastes and new adventures and enjoy a holistic experience at our stunning yoga retreat venue nestled in the beautiful Algarve countryside.
Set in a tranquil, secluded location, with breathtaking views and stunning sunsets, this serene setting will allow you to fully relax and restore your mind and body.
This yoga retreat offers an opportunity to improve your wellbeing and to calm your mind. At our Gong Meditation sessions, also known as a Gong Bath, you will be bathed in the sounds of the gong whilst experiencing the stunning scenery all around you, fully immersing you in the experience. During this retreat you will also enjoy yoga, chakra balancing and nature walking while exploring wonderfully healthy tasty food.
The surrounding countryside and views of the river will make you feel as though you have discovered a secret oasis in this remote and beautiful location in southern Portugal.
Our delicious menus of freshly prepared vegetarian meals and juices, together with yoga classes in a variety of styles, a range of meditation sessions, relaxing nature walks and other feel-good activities, will all balance, revive, and refresh your soul. You can choose as many or as few of the activities that you would like, including taking time to just sit and relax in the stunning infinity pool.
You will spend six fabulous nights at The River House, a secluded, tranquil, retreat located on the banks of the Funcho River, where you will be able to escape the stress of daily life and simply relax, and gift yourself with a wonderful health and wellbeing experience.
Limited to a maximum of 10 people, we ensure that everyone enjoys a personal and truly exceptional stay.
We look forward to welcoming you!
