Quinta Mimosa Retreat Centre

Quinta Mimosa

Quinta Mimosa is a ten-acre estate of almond and olive trees nestled in the hills above the small town of Almancil. Tranquil and private, yet easily accessible, the centre is just a 20min drive from Faro Airport. The accommodation for participants is in three separate houses on the estate, each of which has its own swimming pool. A large Yoga Studio as well as additional accommodation is located between two of the main Casa. Outside, under the shade of a canopy of Carob trees, is where we eat brunch and dinner together. After morning practice and brunch, guests can relax on the estate or make the short trip to one of the stunning local beaches. This little video will give you a feel for what to expect at Quinta Mimosa is.

Experience the benefits of a Yoga Holiday

We all lead hectic, busy lives and getting away for a break is essential for our well-being. A yoga holiday is a chance to genuinely give yourself the time and space you need to relax, recover and recharge completely. How would an ideal day look? Wouldn't you like to practice Yoga in the morning, then relax before brunch in the warmth of the Algarve morning sun. Then the day is yours to rest, to read or walk, meditate or swim. Allow yourself to let go, to assimilate the rejuvenating effects of the practices, to take the time for self-care that you so rarely have in the normal course of a busy life. Early evening dinner followed by meditative practices rounds off a perfect day. Treat yourself to a week (or two) practising Yoga with no distractions, eating locally sourced, freshly prepared, vegetarian food, enjoying beautiful weather in the company of like-minded people.  Need we say more?
