Raw Food & Yoga Summer Retreats Algarve

2017 retreats: August 5th – 12th, August 12th – 19th

Join me in the Algarve for my annual detox: my raw food & yoga retreat in Portugal. On the edge of the Sao Bartolomeu de Messines/Silves nature reserve, this nourishing retreat is an exclusive, intimate and unique week of restful bliss. With my experienced team of yogis and therapists, I will guide you through a beautiful week. This is the perfect chance for you to relax into nature, unplug from the world, restore and reset. There are daily workshops on raw foods from my London Cookery School Program, but you don’t have to play – feel free just to rest and relax.

We’ll create some wonderful dishes together and indulge in the preparation of incredible foods.

Being an experienced yogi is not a prerequisite, all you will need for this stunning week of yoga is the will to explore and embrace a high vibrational flow. There will be daily kitchen classes on raw food, yoga and holistic sessions. They are completely at your leisure, so if you just want to relax by the plunge pool and wait to be fed, that’s ok too. It’s your holiday!

Dine al fresco by the river each night and be ready for spectacular sunsets, evening workshops, meditation sessions, incredible food, cacao ceremonies and much more. Leave feeling rested, rebooted and filled with a new zest for life!

Yoga

We will be practicing yoga for 2-3 hours each day in a variety of styles. Classes are open to all levels, from beginners to experienced practitioners. We will enjoy morning walks in the nature reserve and daily workshops in the kitchen exploring raw food.

Cuisine

My cuisine is chef-prepared, gourmet, living, raw vegan food. It is gluten-free, dairy-free and animal product-free. All of our dishes are freshly prepared each day using locally-sourced, organic ingredients where possible. I soak and sprout all my seeds and nuts, and share with you my knowledge of how to prepare the most sensational living raw foods using these essential ingredients.

We forage for figs, carob and wild edibles where we can and collect local almonds, honey and bee pollen. Non-vegan local products are optional. The local salt we use is hand-harvested by an artisan salt producer using traditional methods.

The first day of the retreat will be juice-only for a full detox, followed by juices, smoothies and gourmet raw food suppers. Our food is all alkaline, high-vibration, nutritious and delicious! Fruit bowls are always available.

Accommodation

We will be staying in a stunning villa located in a hidden nature reserve. A rustic barn conversion, it has been beautifully renovated and decorated with fully air-conditioned rooms. There are five rooms that can all be doubles or twins. Two are ensuite and three share one large, gorgeous bathroom. Camping options are also available.
