Relax, move and have fun

15 people maximum

(Minimum 8 people)

Do you remember the feeling you had as a child when you lay in bed tired and happy at night after playing outside all day on vacation?

That's what you'll experience on this retreat: the perfect combination of rest, sport and play.

Places are limited and it is possible to book shared or single rooms. Early bird rate available until 26 December. Payment in 3 times possible.

We'll start each day with meditation, breathing and then a fun and dynamic 2h vinyasa flow class, each day with a new theme, a different focus and exciting poses.

At the end of the afternoon, we meet again for a 1h experimental practice, in the form of a workshop, a real laboratory for exploring your body and mind. You'll work in duet on more advanced poses: arm balance, heart openings, inversions...

We'll then finish with a slower, more soothing Yin Yoga practice, 45 min of Yin yoga before ending with 15 min of Journaling to bring the day to a gentle, conscious close.

We need phases of rest and relaxation to draw new strength, and we need creativity and play to invite curiosity, authenticity and joy into our lives.

You have the opportunity to take full advantage of the energies of rest, movement and play this week in Portugal, detached from your daily routine, in the midst of nature, dancing among individual and collective spaces,

Villa et Location

Villa Epicurea is located in the evergreen landscape of the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park in Portugal, about 40km south of Lisbon. It’s a stunningly beautiful place that combines sustainability, comfort and design. Surrounded by wild and unspoilt nature, bathed by the ocean breeze and blessed by unreal sunsets, you will be invited to pause, reconnect and harmonize your body, mind and soul.

Immersed in nature you will be given an opportunity to unplug and reset from the hustle of everday life while having time for yourself to find your inner peace and balance.

All the accommodations offer the perfect balance between simplicity and comfort. Both suits and villas come with a balcony or terrace overlooking the green landscape and the ocean.

Located around 20 to 30m from the main house and with an independent entrance, the eco-villas offer more privacy with a beautiful panoramic view of the nature.

The space will be privatized for the duration of the retreat. You'll be the only ones to enjoy it.

couple and single therapist


Elsa Vasselin

This is the 8th retreat she has organized.

Elsa strives to offer a unique experience and different themes each time.


It's hard to resist Elsa's joie de vivre and positive outlook. Her career is fascinating: as a documentary maker for French and international celebrities, she has been able to adapt to all of them, developing great listening skills and empathy, as well as experiencing "out of the ordinary" moments with the singers who make the news.

As a yoga teacher, therapist and energy specialist, she now helps men and women to regain their confidence, build themselves up and be themselves in their bodies, their hearts, their relationships and their sensuality!

But Elsa is also, and above all, a precious naturalness and authenticity. Her joie de vivre and generosity, as well as her open-mindedness on all subjects, make her a person you won't forget.

She has created her own path, off the beaten track, listening to her intuition, following her heart to join and live in Holland with the man who shares her life, overcoming the difficulties of living in a different country with different cultures and remaining flexible in the storms of life, without ever giving up, and also inspiring hundreds of women and men to believe in themselves and above all to follow their dreams...

Is this yoga retreat is for you?

Elsa has been running yoga retreats and workshops since 2016. She has given retreats in Italy, the Netherlands and France, and this is one of her favourite moments in her daily life as a teacher and therapist.

Her retreats are always authentic, and have already created many friendships and fond memories.

For her, a retreat is a human experience in its own right, a total immersion and a moment dedicated to reconnecting with oneself but also to meeting others. It's a moment for yourself, a real gift.

The courses are not à la carte, because they all contribute, day after day, to giving you the letting go that is essential to the success of your stay.

Openness to others, to new things, non-judgement, tolerance and kindness are all part of her values, and she will always advocate them.

After a 10-year career in journalism and music, Elsa has been a teacher since 2015. She builds creative classes in which strength and gentleness intermingle. A dance between self-transcendence and confidence, a nurturing and reassuring space that will guide you into a hypnotic practice.

Yoga practice of at least 6 months recommended.
