The Perfect Autumn Getaway

Portugal yoga retreat ~ oct 24-30, 2024

    Cocoon Retreat Center is situated on the breathtaking Atlantic coast of Portugal, near the charming fishing village of Zambujeira do Mar, in the Alentejo region, which is known for its long stretches of untouched coastline and charming white-washed villages.
Cocoon is the kind of place where each morning is a celebration, practicing under the canopy

of old growth pines, but so is each evening, with farm-to-table feasts, star-gazing, and good company.  

Your Stay

Cocoon is a 275 acre farm + retreat, located just ten minutes from the beach on the wild and untouched coast of Portugal.

With chickens, peacocks, goats, sheep, a fresh water lake, old growth pines, and oversized hammocks for naps, Cocoon is a piece of magic on Portugal's untouched Atlantic coast. 


Come join us!



Cocoon has two yoga spaces. The indoor shala is spacious and airy, and the outdoor deck is perfect for morning meditations or restoratives, set under old Pine trees. A full collection of mats and props are available..

Morning classes will be invigorating and uplifting. After each glorious day, unwind with an early evening practices or after dinner practice which will be a slower, deeper dive including restorative yoga, pranayama, nidra, and meditation.


Cocoon serves three nourishing and delicious farm to table meals each day. Coffee and herbal teas are available throughout the day. Food is sourced locally, either from nearby farms or Cocoon’s own gardens.


A typical breakfast includes eggs, local fruit, Greek yogurt, homemade granola, local honey, homemade jam, slow-rise bread, and a daily tonic.


Lunch is often a bowl; a base of ancient grains like farro, topped with avocado, roasted veggies, nori, or mixed greens.


For dinner, expect Indian + Japanese inspired curries, Mediterranean stews, and at least one of their famous pizza nights.
