About this trip

Join world-class teachers Grace Dubery + Maarja Jõgi at Cocoon Portugal August 13 - 20, 2022 for a week of sunshine, yoga, friendship and connection to nature. Grace has almost 20 years of teaching experience, and was voted Canada's best yoga teacher. Maarja teaches yoga and dance, so you can expect some impromptu dance parties!


This week long retreat is the perfect summer escape! Expect incredible twice daily yoga classes, secret beach adventures, new friendships, and plenty of time to be solo, explore nature & nap in the many hammocks.


Cocoon a 275 acre farm, located just ten minutes from the beach. Cocoon is based in Coastal Alentejo, the wild and untouched coast of Portugal. It's far removed from the coastal tourist culture of the rest of Europe. The beaches are open and expansive, the coastline is magnificent, and it's interwoven with traditional whitewashed villages.


It's roughly two hours south of Lisbon, and slightly closer from Faro. The ocean, with bluffs, trails, and sandy coves, is a 10 minute drive away.

Cocoon Portugal
Cocoon Portugal is a 275 acre coastal farm + retreat, offering inspiration + community for the modern traveller. It's also pure magic, where between the oversized hammocks and the freshwater lake, you'll start to lose track of time. The kind of place where each morning is a celebration, practicing under the canopy of old growth pines, but so is each evening, with world class wine and fascinating dinner conversation.
