Beautiful nature

Nestled in the Parque Natural de Arrábida, our modern and intimate accomodation is the perfect place to relax. Take a nature hike to the ocean, unwind by the bio-pool and enjoy your dinner facing the sunset.


Functional Patterns is a fitness training method that is scientifically based and focused on overall health with results that are long-lasting. FP improves the way you move and gets to the source of your problems so that exercise can be a regenerative activity- as opposed to degenerative.

Modern society has influenced us to believe we can bio-hack our way into health but we believe that humans are first and foremost animals. Longevity and good health are achievable at any age for all types of people by following natural laws such as mindful sun exposure, hydration, connection with nature, moving in a way that respects our biology, and REST. Together we will REWIRE your habits to get you back into a state of balance and connection to yourself and the world around you.

Célio is a Functional Patterns trainer and former pro athlete. He works with clients of all ages to help them get out of pain, improve athletic performance, and prevent injuries.

He will guide you on how to get more out of your body with less effort by taking a holistic approach on how to create the habits necessary to continually inch towards optimal health.

He provides a proven blueprint that has helped performance athletes, professionals with a sedentary lifestyle, and those looking to minimize pain and stay injury free.



Joséphine is a Yoga teacher and Functional Patterns trainer. She is passionate about sharing the traditional teachings of Yoga to help her students on their self-realisation journey. She combines this ancient knowledge with Functional Patterns as her physical approach.

Two years ago she found FP and it has totally changed the way she feels. As a hypermobile Yogi, it has drastically improved her way of life by making her body stronger and more resilient. Joséphine will be co-teaching this retreat with Célio.
