About this trip

with Steffi Grube


Portugal end of  November has still mild temperatures, violet and pink sky and misty mornings. We use this magic to pre-close the year 2023. Expect house-cleaning Katonah Yoga practices, magical Kundalini Breathwork sessions & Pre-Rauhnächte journaling and meditation. Dont't forget lake dips & Picnics at the beach.


This will be a plunge into Katonah Yoga and all things Magic. Because what oftentimes happens in the daily little tasks of life is - magic disappears. We will bring the magic back! Working with our bodies, breath and stillness.


There is no better place for this than Cocoon with it’s oversized hammocks under old growth pines and fresh water lake to let the soul dangle and enjoy a glass of wine in solitude or good conversation. The Ocean is only a 15 min drive away.


A Morning Dip in the lake, spending afternoons at the beach, nurturing yourself with the warmth of freshly baked bread. Dance in your room, leave roses anonymously on somebody elses doorstep. The world is yours. Come with me on this magical once in a lifetime trip.


Perfect for bringing things to an end and focusing on what really matters. 


November sun in Portugal is beautiful - the mornings may be misty, dreamy creamy in pink and violet. Sun sets are super colourful as the sun stands really close to the earth.

I loved it very much to travel again with Steffi. Her classes are always ass-kicking, intelligent and fun!

The food was just great and the place offered a calm surrounding including a very clear pond to swim in. They were equipped with most useful things as sun umbrellas etc. The retreat started every day with a refreshing Yoga session and there was bodywork in the evening. That left us with a lot of time to discover the surroundings. We even made trips with the group led by the retreat leaders to special places.

We were a wonderful group and had a great week experiencing Katonah Yoga and Embodiement Classes with our lovely teachers Steffi & Anni.. Cocoon is a beautiful and calm place in the middle of nature. I loved the Peacock family coming to visit our terrace in the morning. The small lake nearby is a very special place to go for a swim, day and night, or a short paddle trip on the SUP. The food was delicious, I really enjoyed the pizza night and also the fish on our last evening.

It was life changing for me, full of blessings and findings with the most loving and cherishing group I could have ever wished for. I feel so blessed!

We had a great time with a really awesome accommodation and delicious food. The lake was the icing on the cake. Steffi Grube and Anni were best yoga teachers and hosts. The other participant's were also really great and we had a fantastic time together.
