Yoga, Hiking & Whale Watching
in the
Azores of Portugal

March 28-April 3, 2020

Journey to the magical island of Sao Miquel in the stunning Portuguese Azores. This is a nature lover’s paradise and an exquisite opportunity for adventurers to experience a truly unique part of the world….Imagine dramatic volcanic cliffs, deserted black and white beaches, quaint fishing villages, healing hot springs and lush green rolling hills…. 

We’ll reside in the beautiful eco-friendly Quinta Minuvida Orchard Lodge which is surrounded by fruit trees and beautiful gardens. The property dates back to the 1800’s as a fruit orchard home, and has been artfully revived to assure you a comfortable, restful place to call home for the week. Rooms at Minuvida are lovingly well appointed, each with a private en suite bathroom.
Foodies will be indulged in the local cuisine which includes a bounty of fresh local produce, seafood and traditional dishes hand prepared to entice the senses and nourish your body. Savor local wines and liquors made from native island fruits. Experience the region through your palate!
Enjoy incredible hikes to volcanic rims through the verdant hills and valleys. We’ll visit natural hot springs and explore tidal pools on deserted pristine beaches. April is the perfect time to see large whales on our whale watching excursion. 
Immerse yourself in daily Yoga and meditation classes to nourish your body, mind and soul. Classes are designed with your needs in mind, both to gently challenge and deeply restore. The theme of the week is “Restoration and Rejuvenation”. We’ll have a balance of active and restful practices to support our adventure. Take your practice to a deeper level… you will be reminded how important cultivating calm, balance and self care can be not only for health and well being, but as a way of reaching your true potential, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Clear your mind, open your body and calm your soul.

Yoga retreats with Cyndi are a wonderful way to deepen your personal yoga practice. Not only do you benefit several times a day from her knowledgeable guidance in the philosophy and therapeutics of yoga asana but you also have the opportunity to relax, restore and explore the beauties of nature in a new setting.
