From Michelle...

For the last 40 years, since opening my first beauty salon in bath, I’ve always been passionate about helping people look and feel their best. I absolutely loved helping my clients with their skin goals. About 20 years ago I became more and more interested in nutrition as I began to understand and appreciate the link between eating well and looking and feeling great.

Almost 13 years ago I found Kundalini yoga and meditation and it made such a difference to my life, in fact using this practice transformed so much for me I found I was able to handle stress so much better, I learnt how to use the breath and change my emotional state. It really is an amazing technology with so many life changing hacks to help us renew and recharge.

I have been honoured to share these incredible teachings and benefits and have been amazed at the healing that taken place in my students, it’s been joyful seeing them restored and totally revitalised I feel so blessed to now bring this altogether for you and your friends to experience a few days or even a week to fully relax, feel revitalised and restored back to your former radiant self this is my promise for each and every one of you who retreats to Quinta do Rio.

Our retreats are small and completely bespoke depending on what you and your friends require. For instance you may want a completely relaxing, rejuvenating retreat with healthy food, juices and shakes, no alcohol or caffeine etc. Others may want long leisurely dinners with wine! We will tailor the whole retreat to your specific group and your requirements. Some groups may like a sunrise meditation whereas other may prefer a later start to their day.

All retreats will include at least one Kundalini yoga session, a meditation and gong bath each day, as well as an infra red sauna. There is full use of the pool area and gardens where there are lots of different areas for quiet contemplation, reading or just being! As well as the putting green and Table Tennis. There is also the opportunity to do a daily walk or perhaps even a sea walk! And there’s always the option of relaxing at the beach or a visit to a local vineyard or one of the nearby villages or towns and a local restaurant should you wish.

The retreats are for between 1 and 6 people sharing the 3 bedroom apartment that can accommodate up to 6 people:

All meals and soft beverages are included.
We can also arrange additional classes or experiences such as fitness classes, hatha yoga, massages, reiki healing etc at an additional cost...

A retreat can be anything from 2 nights to 7 nights.
I would be delighted to speak further to help you plan the perfect bespoke retreat for you and your friends or to just clarify anything and answer more questions...
