The Wellness Philosophy

Saturday 3-10 May 2025, Wild View Retreat Centre, Portugal

We are so excited to be offering this week long Yoga & Wellness retreat next Summer in the beautiful Portuguese countryside. Our venue, Wild View Retreat, is defined by its spectacular uninterrupted 360° views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains, a Zona De Intervenção Florestal protected for its natural beauty and famous Portuguese cortiça (cork) trees. In the words of Andrew, the owner of the venue, there is "Nothing but wilderness and nature. Nothing to hear but the birds and the wind. Nothing to do but restore and relax the body, mind and soul." Heaven!

This retreat will combine yoga, holistic therapy, and nourishing whole foods, all within this setting of outstanding natural beauty, to facilitate a week of complete rejuvenation. The Wellness Philosophy duo, Michelle & Rachel, will be bringing together all of their skills and experience, along with the staff at Wild View, to create a truly nurturing week.

Rachel will be offering twice daily yoga practices in the award-winning yoga studio space overlooking the mountains (studio terrace pictured below). The mornings will begin with a dynamic and uplifting Vinyasa Flow practice, while the evenings will be a time to energetically downshift and soothe the nervous system with Restorative yoga. Michelle will be offering her healing hands with an hour long Holistic Massage, Indian Head Massage or Reiki treatment for you included in the retreat, with the option to book an additional treatment during the week (availability depending).

So, what's included in the retreat price?
