Welcome to a 5-night immersive yoga retreat with Soul Sanctuary founder, Cat Meffan. Over the 5-nights that we are together, we’ll move, breathe, meditate, dance and connect through the power of embodied flow, free movement, breathwork, meditation, sharing circles and sound healing. The vibrations and frequencies that you meet through these practices will be the inner guide that you reach for when it’s time to surrender, heal and let go.

Soul Sanctuary retreats aren’t your average yoga retreats. We ask our guests to not only explore the physical practice of yoga, but to be willing to delve into a journey of deep healing. If this sounds like something you’re ready for, trust that you were meant to be reading this right now and join us for an immersive 5-night, nourishing and intimate retreat in Portugal.

Along with all of the deep and juicy stuff, there is so much joy, bliss and playfulness to be embraced. We will be soaking up the incredible Algarve coastline, connecting with an abundance of nature and enlivening ourselves both on and off the mat.

Are you ready?


Soul Sanctuary retreats with Cat Meffan invite you to have time to feel deeply into your true and most aligned self, a peeled-back version of your soul and a more powerful and confident version of YOU. We will take time to go through the motions of transformation both through the power of an inwards journey and the power of sharing an experience with like-minded humans.


Our villa for the retreat is located just a short 15-minute walk to the incredible cliff tops and secret beaches of the Algarve, near to Carvoeiro, and is just a 45 minute drive from Faro airport. We will have the use of a dedicated shala for our daily practices, but will lap up as much time as possible out in the amazing garden and space around the pool. Expect to spend your evenings dining outside in the warm September air, and to spend your mornings waking up to the tweeting birds and pastel sunrise skies.


We will have two large meals per full day (brunch and dinner), plus a pre-practice smoothie and a snack/light lunch at around 2pm. Our fully plant-based menu is set to be extremely delicious as always, and you’ll leave the retreat wanting to include more vegan goodness in your life.


Please note that this is subject to change, but will give you an idea of what to expect.
