What if it were possible to combine the simplicity of Asian living with the indulgences of European cuisine? Maybe add a rich, local wine pairing to our wholesome, home-grown meals? What if we peeled the layers away and encouraged our inner radiance to shine through by trying something new? Practice yoga with the sunrise and the sunset. Ride waves in one of the best surf locations in the world. Dance like nobody’s watching. Breathe in fresh sea air from hiking trails along rugged coastal cliffs.

We are thrilled to announce that Whole & Happy is expanding to Portugal this September.  The location is Arrifana Pines, an environmentally conscious Surf Lodge boasting sustainable living, zero waste systems, homemade kombucha, wholesome garden-to-table food and a gang of very happy chatty chickens.  Located in close proximity to some of the most breathtaking beaches the West Algarve has to offer, this is the perfect location to slow down, retreat, and reconnect with your inner happy place.

Each day we focus on a different theme or “ingredient” for a Whole & Happy lifestyle – Gratitude, Nature, Connection, Playfulness, and Creativity. We encourage transformation and deeper digging into what makes you tick, through morning post-yoga journal prompts and daily activities that align with each theme. Read a little more about the integral parts of a Whole & Happy Retreat, and some behind the scenes stories here.

It makes no difference whether you’ve had a yoga practice for years, or never heard of a downward dog in your life – if you are a human-being with the desire for growth, connection and inspiration to discover your happy place, then this retreat is for you!
