LOCATION

MEKAYOGA offers yoga retreats at two different locations in the Nature Reserve Costa Vicentina in the South-West corner of Portugal. Nature is what we are. Being in nature heals our body and nurtures our soul. To help you reconnect with your Nature, we offer weeks where you can completely disconnect from the world.

Do you want some comfort? Book our quiet YogaVilla. Just outside of a picturesque fisherman village and just a green hill and steep cliff away from the Atlantic Ocean (2km). In our YogaVilla you can enjoy the luxury of a pool, a jacuzzi, and a yoga deck in our green garden.

Prefer to go completely back to Nature? Then our Nature Tipis are the right choice for you. Wonderfully decorated tipis with outdoors bamboo showers, a lake side yoga deck and just green hills, birds and flowers…

TEACHERS
