Bridget Woods Kramer and Bill Mahony Yoga Retreat
Portugal, November 5-11 2024
This yoga and philosophy retreat brings together 2 of the most respected teachers in their fields. I warmly invite you to join us on the southern coast of Portugal for what is going to be a very special retreat.
Bridget Woods Kramer
Bridget Woods Kramer is one of the UK’s leading yoga teachers. Her continued self practice for over 50 years is evident in not only her asana practice but also her very presence. Bridget started teaching in 1988 and has since taught to students of all ages and abilities (including a few celebs along the way!) She is a well known and well loved teacher in both Cornwall and in London where she taught at Triyoga for many years; in 2012 she was voted as one of the top 5 teachers in London by the Evening Standard. Bridget has a gift for alignment – she is unparalleled in her ability to read each unique body. She is also known for her humour – expect to laugh and not to take yourself too seriously as well.
Bill Mahony is known in yoga communities across the continents for his warm, lively and compassionate teaching that is accessible to contemporary yoga students at all levels as well as to those interested in deepening their spiritual lives in other ways. Bill integrates his deep knowledge of yoga philosophy with insights refined over nearly five decades of his own yogic practice. He shares with participants the expansive and transforming wisdom he finds in the splendid texts he studies, and he guides participants in ways they can fruitfully apply these perspectives in their own lives.
The venue is a 275 acre farm on the coast of Southern Portugal. The farm grows much of it’s on food, it has a beautiful freshwater lake and is only 10 minutes from beautiful stretches of untouched coastline.
You can find out more about the venue here: https://www.cocoonportugal.com/ (although I please ask that you direct any questions about the location to me initially as it may be something that I have already asked them.)

Travel to and from the site
The retreat site is a 2 hour drive from both Lisbon and Faro airport.
The most cost effective and practical option is to hire a car for a car share, for a group of 4 students prices start at £35 for 6 days. Having a car whilst you are at the site will also allow you to drive to the coast (it’s a 10 minute drive.) If you let me know which airport you are arriving to and the day and time of your flight, I can pair you up with other people arriving on the same day as you.
There is also an option of airport pick up with a private driver from Lisbon or Faro at 2pm on the 5th and airport drop off on the 11th leaving at 10am. The cost for this is £45 each way.
