About this trip

Ahhh Portugal.  

Have you been?  If the answer is yes, you're excited to get back, it the answer is no, certainly you've been wanting to go!  


Join Jessica Willis and Katrina Petney at Cocoon from September 10th - 17th.  Mid-September is the ideal time to be in southern Portugal.  The weather is deliciously warm, days are still lazy and long, and the water draws the sun's rays to heat it.  Besides beach hopping along the protected beaches of the Alentejo region, you'll enjoy world class yoga from two women who've been friends since adolescence and taught yoga and mindfulness for over two decades combined. There'll be day trips to explore the treasures of the Alentejo region and ample down time to enjoy the farm, fresh water lake, and property.  


Katrina and Jessica are highly trained and talented teachers pulling from a range of yogic traditions.  You'll benefit from the playfulness of their toolkit with vinyasa, Katonah, Yin, Restorative, and you might even brush up on your Salsa dancing!  

 

Come away with us and build memories and relationships, that'll stay with you.  

Check-in and Check-out

Check-in time on Saturday the 10th is anytime after 3pm.  Ideally between 3p and 5p.  Dinner will be the first meal served on the 10th.  


Check-out time on Saturday the 17th is 10am. We'll practice and have breakfast on the 17th.  Comporta is a popular beach town to hit on the way back to Lisbon, plan lunch at Comporta Cafe (make reservations) and another dip in the ocean.
