Roof-top yoga, daily meditations, sound baths, an eco-hotel with refreshing views and pools, delicious farm-to-fork food, a fortifying glass of wine, the UNESCO world heritage site of Evora and beautiful forest walks amidst olive and cork trees: The Renewal is a new lifestyle retreat designed to promote profound inner healing and ethical travel at a time when we most need it.
Following a year dominated by illness and isolation, here is an opportunity to recalibrate in naturally peaceful surroundings, form new friendships with inspiring people from around the world, hone some nurturing self-care techniques with the guidance of experts and enjoy an invigorating cultural immersion. From olive oil tastings to explorations in the cobbled streets of one of Portugal’s hidden city gems, the aim is to provide a collective experience with a positive social and environmental impact.
From the creators of Corc Yoga, - who bought us the world’s only handmade 100% cork yoga mat – the inaugural Renewal Retreat takes place in perfect alignment at the world’s first cork hotel, Tivoli Evora Ecoresort, in Evora, from 27 June to 3 July 2021. A zero-waste event, the trip promises to be ideal for those seeking to boost their mental and physical wellbeing, as well as travel more consciously.
A variety of highly regarded and inspiring teachers will collaborate to offer a mix of instruction to suit every need. As Corc Yoga’s founder Christine Moghadam says “We believe that yoga is a lifestyle, not just a physical practice. We’re passionate about living life purposefully, whether you want to deepen your practice or are brand new to yoga, our community is open to everyone.”
