About The Retreat
July 27-August 3rd, 2019
The tide song and skyline have inspired a week of deep-diving into the rhythm and space of our bodies. Through Vinyasa, meditation and Pranayama, we will explore ourselves and our surroundings. Farm-to-table meals, Vinyasa in the sweet wind of the pine-canopied outdoor shala or the arch-ceilinged indoor shala, this place is no accident. We wanted to learn together with you- how our feet can find their own meter and how our bodies can hold more breath, we think the answers are on this sacred spot.

We believe that a nourishing meal and a delicious feast don’t need to be exclusive of one another. Our food is local, with most of our produce coming from either our property or a nearby farm.
From a sustainability standpoint, we choose not to serve red meat, pork or poultry. We do serve eggs from our chickens, locals cheeses, and occasionally wild-caught Atlantic fish. 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 curries, Mediterranean stews, legumes, rice, salad and dessert. We also have an outdoor, wood-fired Pizza oven.
A retreat is a container to hold your practice. Well, we have quite the stunning container. Cocoon Portugal sits in national parkland along the Costa Vicentina, a little-known gem (unless you are Portugese, or say, Carla Bruni).
Cocoon is located in the coastal Alentejo region. Also known as The Costa Vicentina, much of the Southwest coast of Portugal is protected by a natural reserve. This means that development stays constrained, with traditional architecture + small farms dotting the land. The nearest town to us is the charming Vila Nova de Milfontes. The fabulous Praia
do Malhão, with it’s sandy beach, is ten minutes drive.
What airport do I fly into?
Lisbon. From Lisbon, we’re two hours drive south, entirely dependent on how many espressos you’ve had.
