Overview

Explore and run wild on this stunning stretch of the unspoilt West coast of Portugal. Cocoon is situated on the breathtaking Atlantic coast, near the charming fishing village of Zambujeira do Mar in the Alentejo region, which is known for its long stretches of untouched coastline and white-washed villages. The ocean, with bluffs, trails, and sandy coves, is a 10-15 minutes drive, or a lovely bike ride away.

Tania will offer two classes each day. The daily sessions will focus on movement, breath and relaxation to make your body stronger and more flexible enhancing your awareness of breath, alignment and inner connection. Classes will be suitable for all abilities and there will be one yoga free day.

The day will begin with a flowing and dynamic asana class either on the outdoor platform under the canopy of pines or in the light and airy indoor shala. This will be followed by a nourishing and delicious breakfast made from local produce. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more relaxing and restorative class before dinner.

Between classes there will be time to head off for a bicycle ride, go to the beach for a swim in the sea, walk in the stunning surroundings, take a dip in the pristine freshwater lake or simply relax in a hammock with a good book.

You can head off to the beach or explore the local area by bicycle. Take a dip in the pristine freshwater lake or simply daydream in a comfy oversized hammock. Cocoon is just 10 minutes drive or a leisurely cycle-ride away from Praia do Malhao, a fabulous untouched beach, perfect for surfing, swimming or sunbathing. There's also world-class hiking on the famed Costa Vicentina trail. The charming seafront village of Vila Nova de Milfontes is also just 10 minutes drive away.

Comfortable, clean and elegant rooms open onto an outdoor courtyard. Each room has two or three beds, that can be situated apart as a twin or triple or close together as a double. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms apart from two which share a bathroom. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space to chill, read a book or sit and chat.

You will be offered three delicious and nourishing meals each day. The food is local, with most of the produce coming from either Cocoon's garden or a nearby farm.

There will be dinner out one evening in a local town. A typical breakfast includes eggs, local fruit, Greek yogurt, homemade granola, local honey, homemade jam, slow-baked 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 or Japanese inspired curries, Mediterranean stews, legumes, rice, salad and dessert. Cocoon typically serve fish once during the week.
