About this trip

Join Cat Lynch and Diane Simpson for 5 nights / 6 days of healing, yoga, meditation and outdoor exploration in the Azores, Portugal.


The Azores are a magical, volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and endless outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and just under 5 hours from the east coast. 


Our days will include yoga, meditation and mindfulness sessions with Cat and Diane, as well as hikes to some of the most incredible vistas on the island, soaks in natural hot springs, and exploration of neighboring towns and beaches.  For all of the foodies in this group, you'll have free time to explore the tiny villages and delicious regional cuisine. 


There will also be plenty of time for relaxation amongst the beautiful gardens and fruit orchards of Quinta Minuvida, our home for the week. Our accommodations feature lovingly renovated suites, each unique and gorgeous, with its own private bathroom. All meals (except for 2 lunches on free days) are included, and will be nourishing, fresh, and delicious, so that you can get a true taste of Azorean fare.

Felt like I was living out a dream I've had in the past; between the beautiful, lusciously green-glowing garden environment, the supportive space to practice in, delicious meals on the deck, intellectual exchanges with like-minded individuals, absorbing the Mayan and Guatemalan culture, and of course the breathtaking view of the volcano and lake, I don't think I could have asked for a more soul-reviving time. Not to mention the hospitality of the staff was 5 star. Thanks for making me feel activated and alive again. Rebecca, Kelly, Ian, Kristin, Ollie, Flor, Riley, the beautiful ladies in the kitchen, and all other staff, you all are amazing!
I cannot thank Solseed enough for the AMAZING experience, accommodations, coordination and friendship. This trip was A+ from beginning to end. Kelly and Rebecca were the most inspiring yoga leaders, and I would highly recommend a trip with them and Solseed to anyone who is looking to change their life!
Fantastic trip. Smooth transportation experience. Rooms were rustic but clean and comfortable. The food was delicious. Excursions were fun and well planned.
I enjoyed the overnight in Antigua before we headed to our retreat on the shore of Lake Atitlan. The food was fresh, colorful and delicious, the elective outings were good experiences, and the retreat in general was well paced. Best of all were the morning and evening yoga sessions with journaling after the morning session. Kelly and Rebecca are wise beyond their years and open hearted. Thanks to them, the group of about 30 participants, ages 20's - 70's (?) bonded over the week. It was a really special time.
This was an amazing trip. Lovely people, excellent food, clean accommodations. Everything was so well run, and everyone was so eager to please or help with any question or request. The views continued to take my breath away throughout our stay. I would highly recommend this trip.
