2020 has been a very challenging year for humanity. Questions, doubts, resolutions, transformations, new goals, and a very strong impulse for change are growing in our heart and settling in our minds. Are you feeling confused, tired, and hesitant? Do you need to take a break and absorb all the strange feelings? Do you need to breathe, to rest, and get out of your daily routine in order to make decisions? Do you need to run from the city and deep connect with the natural elements? Join Orgânica.Mente in this “Reboot” retreat in the Douro Valley that will promote a deep connection with nature and help you to open your heart, clear your mind, and set your intentions.

The house “Casa do Campinho“, a beautiful mix of an old Portuguese manor house with all modern conveniences will be your space to feel at home. The house is divided into 3 apartments with one, two or three bedrooms, and each bedroom has a private bathroom. The house has an indoor and an outdoor kitchen where the meals will be served. Around the swimming pool, there are special places for daily practices.

One of the highlights of this retreat is a very special healing place in the farm where Orgânica.Mente is based: the dome where special yoga and meditation sessions will take place.


This retreat was designed to fit all. It aims to conduct you in a deep immersion in the nature that surrounds you and the true nature that lives inside you.

The yoga practice will be fluid, calm and adequate to the group, based on Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga styles. Asana practice is a big part of each yoga class. By practicing asanas, the body develops flexibility, strength and stamina; and by cultivating the body, the mind can become clear and quiet. Meditation and pranayama sessions will also occur daily to complete the daily practice.

Nurturing the body and calm the mind is the main goal in this reboot retreat. Nutrition workshops given by certified instructors were designed related to the following themes: holistic nutrition, conscious eating and vegetarian culinary. All of this surrounded by an incredible green, involved by true nature and bathed by Rio Douro and Rio Bestança where the water experiences will take place.

Get out of your comfort zone and join Cátia and Susana in this immersion!
