Meditation Retreat in Sintra, Portugal

Refresh your spirit with a yoga and meditation retreat in Portugal

Come and join us on a journey to connect with your authentic self, find peace and stillness within, and learn tools that will support you in your everyday life.


After living in a school of meditation for many years we created Shamballah to provide a supportive and focused environment for practicing meditation and deepening your understanding of the practice. We created a structure that promotes wellbeing. There is plenty of free time to explore the surrounding Nature and to enjoy the many other activities available or simply relax. A meditation retreat can be a powerful and transformative experience. We believe that consciousness starts with the body, the asanas (yoga postures) help to prepare the body and mind for meditation.


Meditation Practices

We will share many different meditation techniques and breathing exercises in our meditation retreats. Some that help to cultivate a sense of calm and relaxation. Others that can help to improve focus and clarity of thought, which can be beneficial in both personal and professional life. These are valuable tools that everyone can learn. Even though they can be simple, if we practice them frequently we can experience many benefits.

Nourishing Food

Diet is a very important pilar in this path of self-development. Our food is an highlight for many of our guests, providing good energy for our physical and mental health. With influences from around the world our plant based meals are cooked with local and mostly organic ingredients aimed at not just nourishing our body and soul but also promote healing


The spacious house has high quality finishing providing all the comfort for your stay. With underfloor heating, you can enjoy your retreat all year round and the many differences of all seasons. Beds are very comfortable and we have different living spaces to connect with others or enjoy some quiet reading. Being by the sea can be very calming and relaxing, as the sound of the waves and the salty sea air can help to create a sense of peace and tranquility.

Healing Treatments

We have different healing treatments available.
Massage is one of the most ancient forms of healing used by humans. It helps to relax the body and mind.
We offer different types of healing massage therapies and all of them have a holistic approach to the state of wellbeing.
Human touch when done from a conscious space can be a powerful channel for deep healing.

Other Activities

There is plenty of time for self-care and adventure.
We have selected several high-quality activities with facilitators that are passionate about what they do and are motivated to share their knowledge and experience with you.
All these practices are designed to align our body and mind to their natural state of balance and equilibrium, creating a fertile environment within our body, a calm and clear mind to welcome creative ideas, curiosity, and passion to explore the journey of life.


Sintra has always been considered mystical by the many cultures that passed and lived here.

Its many palaces and parks transport us to a dimension where it is easy to connect with the beauty of Nature and this world of ours.

Being right by the coast with expansive views of the Ocean may offer the opportunity to disconnect from technology and the distractions of daily life, which can be beneficial for helping to clear the mind and cultivate a sense of inner peace.


There are many reasons on why to choose a meditation retreat in Portugal with Shamballah Retreats.

One reason is that having small and intimate group may allow for more individualised attention from the teachers and a stronger sense of connection with the other participants.

The peaceful and calming effects of being near the ocean, the natural beauty of the coastline can provide a sense of connection and relaxation that are conducive to the practice of meditation.

And last but not the least, the delicious, healthy and nutritional food is also an highlight for most of our guests.
