Time to join us for a new year yoga holiday in Madeira!
Escape the usual new year and take time out for yourself to spend a whole week in this tropical paradise. With yoga twice a day, a selection of hikes that show off the landscape of Madeira, delicious veggie/plant-based food and the culture and friendliness of the locals, return home feeling refreshed and ready for 2024. And don’t forget the infamous fireworks display on New years eve…a spectacle to be ticked off the bucket list.
As it is a new year yoga holiday with us and as with all our new year retreats we share with you a setting intentions workshop, to get clear on your goals for 2024 and a New years eve feast and ceremony to bring in 2024 with positivity, peace and community.
Madeira is situated not far off the coast of North Africa, an island full of raw, natural beauty and adventures. Madeira may be small in size but it makes up for it by everything else being on a grand scale. To begin, it boasts Europe’s highest sea cliffs, and over 1300 hiking trails and even shows off the world’s largest firework display annually. This volcanic island really is a sight to behold.
Pioneers of slow tourism, Madeira is an island that protects and conserves its natural assets with care both on land and at sea. In fact, two-thirds of Madeira’s 741km2 is classified as a nature reserve. Furthermore, the natural heritage of the Madeira archipelago makes it a prime ecological destination.
For our new year yoga holiday in Madeira this December, you will be staying in one of the oldest Quintas on the island. Perched high above the bay of Funchal with sweeping views across the city and out to sea it feels like home from the moment you arrive.
A vast estate, the property is a working farm with a vineyard and a long, fascinating history! There are beautiful gardens to enjoy and a swimming pool, anyone for a cold water dip?! This is not a remote location, only a 15-minute walk into the city even though it feels like a fully secluded estate.
Honestly, there are so many adventures to be had in Madeira, that we struggled to create an itinerary that squeezes it all in! However, we have created a new year yoga adventure that blends the best this incredible island has to offer.
