Breathe. Connect. Expand. Celebrate.

Quality time for you. Quality time to be together and share unforgettable moments.

Slow down from the daily bustle, and create room to smooth and balance the internal rhythms. Moments when we do not look at the phone, but at those who are by our side.

A holiday dedicated to your wellbeing, to the nourishment of your body and expansion of your consciousness,  in a cheerful and relaxed atmosphere, where self-knowledge and celebration come together.

A detox of body and mind, contemplating a healthy and conscious diet, Yoga, Breathwork, Meditation, Ritual, Music, Dance and Movement. All this in deep connection with Nature.

This is our proposal. This is Rise & Shine.

An experience specially designed to make you feel in deep harmony with yourself. A retreat where you will receive the guidance of excellent professionals to expand different aspects of your being.

Whether you seek to relieve stress and reboot your system, or you seek more energy and vitality in your life or simply because you want to enjoy your time in a connected and joyful way, Rise & Shine offers you all the resources to relax, nourish and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit.
