Unleash Your Inner Power Retreat

Ayurveda & Yoga – Portugal Sept 25th to 30th

UNLEASH YOUR INNER POWER RETREAT is a 6-day life renewing experience in which we will take you on a journey that is deeply replenishing in the beautiful CASA PALMELA, in Setubal, Portugal.

Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, breath work, lectures, dynamic activities and excursions, all designed to raise your understanding of self-care and self-healing. This experience will elevate your awareness leading to deep healing, replenishment, and strength. You can’t miss it!


Situated in the heart of the Arrábida Natural Park, Hotel Casa Palmela is located in Quinta do Esteval, a luxury house with a history dating back to the seventeenth century.

Pass through the grand gates of Casa Palmela and prepare to be utterly relaxed. A long road lined with vineyards gives you welcome, approaching the one that will be an unforgettable experience.


Start the day with a transformative yoga, meditation and pranayama classe, enjoy nourishing meals prepared with typical products from the Setúbal region, learn Ayurveda principles and have moments of total relaxation by the pool, Ayurvedic massage, and an meditative sunset boat ride.

And why not explore the best of Portugal with our practices? As part of our schedule, you will get to visit a local winery during the grape harvest (vidima); explore one of the best farmers markets of Portugal with Luciana, your Ayurvedic expert at your side; and also lose yourself in the art of tile making by handcrafting and painting a Portuguese tile in an inward experience.

Leave feeling both refreshed and with a profound sense of awareness of your own unlimited potential, and with the practical tools the experts have gifted you, continue your journey at home
