nourish your essence
yoga retreat

02.04.2025 – 07.04.2025 | MONTE DA ORADA, PORTUGAL

This retreat will focus on nourishing your essence. In order for you to explore deep down into your being, we will guide you through breathwork sessions with Mela Mariposa, sound baths with Vanessa, a Peruvian plant bath, a fire ceremony, a sweat lodge (Temazcal) and a mixture of elements of the Viva Flow. This retreat very much has a Shamanic feel to it, because at Monte da Orada, you are immersed in nature and the beautiful energy of this magical retreat center. And not only that: you are close to the beautiful beach at Odeceixe, where you can try your luck at surfing (not part of the retreat package, but available to book). And if that´s  too energetic for you, try the ice bath, sauna or enjoy the bio pool or a relaxing massage. We can´t wait to share this magical experience with you.   


Located at Portugal’s Southwest Atlantic Coast, bordering Algarve, it combines an amazing set of spectacular wild surf beaches and the authentic countryside tranquility of Alentejo 1,5 hours away from Faro airport and 2,5 hours away from Lisbon. This isolated evergreen valley creates an abundant oasis where two creeks come together, as a womb, to nourish an ancient lush forest and wildlife vistas.

The name Orada means “prayed for” (since XVI century), according to local parish records, as this is one of the oldest buildings on record in this remote protected region, predating the town of São Teotónio. Legend goes that both people and animals once here would not want to leave until regaining their full natural and cosmic forces. This gave rise to the cult of the Madonna of Orada (Nossa Senhora da Orada).

Orada is a family run, eco-sustainable, permaculture based, soul retreat centre, nestled in 71 ha of nature and privacy, aligned with the aim of expanding health and proposing purposeful transformational moments. We provide vegetarian and vegan catering, organic farming, meditation and nature contemplation spaces. The luxury at Orada is its natural setting, the lovingly prepared food and its inclusive informal atmosphere.
