The closest beach is only a 15 minutes walk away from our Ana Ana house (Praia da Rocha).

"The MARvellous Retreat was an extraordinary experience. Eva put together a beautiful program and there was always a perfect mix between movement and stillness; action and time to reflect; community and time alone. We got the chance to explore an extraordinary region, to learn more about ourselves, go deeper and connect with other beautiful souls. Body, mind and soul were nourished and I felt energized and relaxed when I returned home."
Meet your coach: Eva Eulenstein
I am Eva. A global citizen with German and Spanish roots. Since spending a social year in Brasil after high school, I have a deep connection to the Portuguese culture and visited Brasil and Portugal many times. I cannot wait to show you my favorite places in the beautiful Algarve.
As a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), I support empathic women with lots of clarity and courage to break free from the traditional 9 to 5 hamster wheel and to create a fulfilling out-of-the-box work life.
I am creating this retreat to offer you a safe and inspiring environment to finally meet face-to-face again, build a supportive tribe, and create lots of incredible memories.
Everything I organize has a personal touch and comes with lots of heart and positive intention.
Here you can find out more about my personal story and professional journey.
Meet your yoga teacher: Berta Couto
Hi, I am Berta. Originally from Portugal, I traveled a lot and became a yoga teacher in the motherland of Yoga, India, where I deepened my practice of Yoga and knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine.
My teaching style is the result of a symbiosis between my own regular practice of Yoga, years of traveling around Asia and Central America, and my experience as a nurse.
At the moment, I dedicate my lifetime teaching Yoga and working as Ayurvedic Therapist in Portimão, following the path of Unconditional Love.
I am a true believer that through the regular practice of Yoga, combining it with contact with nature, it's possible to make life a seed of what we would like to see grow in the world inside and out of us.
I look forward to creating a unique, healing experience with you!
