Our retreats take place in and around the city of Lagos in the beautiful Algarve region of southern Portugal. The beach in the image above is a leisurely 10 minute walk from the villa that will be our home-base and place of lodging.
A villa setting lets you get into the essence of healthy aging in private – assessing your current status and learning how to promote optimal well-being. We will cover major constituents of healthy aging – brain health, functional fitness, adaptability and resilience, emotions and outlook, nutrition and being social.
The nearby town and countryside provides an opportunity to experience Portugal. And, by design, while you enjoy the stimulation of a new culture and country, you will be putting healthy aging principles into action.
This retreat starts late in the day on Sunday and end at 5 pm on Friday. This gives us enough time to discuss the essential principles of healthy aging. Equally important, there is time to engage you in experiences that help you embrace these principles in fun and enjoyable ways. And, by the time you leave on Friday, you will have an actionable healthy aging plan.
This timeframe makes it easy to tack-on a fews days in Lisbon or the countryside – before, after or both.
The retreat will take place April 29 to May 4, 2018. This timeframe is ideal for several reasons. First, the weather is sunny and warm. It also avoids the heat and crowds for the summer months.
