Yoga with Kristi and 5 Guideposts with Lair in the Algarve: Feed your Soul Resort , Carvoeiro, Portugal
May 20-27, 2023

Join in for a carefully curated yoga experience designed to “Feed Your Soul”.  Step away from your everyday life and take time to find yourself. Your retreat guides, Kristi and Lair, will lead you on a journey to self exploration through movement and mindfulness. Connect. Laugh. Discover. Transform.

We will start each day nourished from the inside out.  The perfect combination of food and movement will prepare your mind and body for the day ahead. Each evening we will wrap up the day with a slower practice, guided meditation and a locally sourced, chef prepared dinner.

To further enhance your retreat experience, we have arranged a cooking lesson for the group as well as a sound bath journey. During the day, you will have the time to explore as little or as much as your heart desires.  There is so much to do in the Algarves of Portugal.
