The following event information was obtained from the Men’s Retreat website.

Immerse yourself in the tidal rhythms of Brazil and Men’s Retreats for a week of yoga, strength training and surfing. We’ve booked the exclusive use of one of Brazil’s finest boutique hotels nestled within the subtropical jungle just above the beach. We will offer optional sunrise surf sessions, two daily led group yoga practices, two catered meals every day, and lots of free time for your own local adventures. Antonio, who was born and raised in the area, will be our tour guide providing us with insight for meaningful connections to this vibrant and inclusive culture. Expect colourful expressions of music, food and nature and immerse yourself in the upbeat experience of southern Brazil.  Are you ready for a nourishing week of brotherhood, ocean, and relaxation?

Located in the southern state of Santa Catarina, Praia do Rosa is considered one of the most cosmopolitan and sophisticated, yet fairly untapped beach town. Made from an eco-conscious community of fishermen, surfers, artists, entrepreneurs and expats from neighbouring countries such as Argentina and Uruguay; the town sits high on a bluff above the beach offering beautiful views wherever you look. In winter and spring, the bay becomes a breeding ground for southern right whales, and mothers and calves can be seen from the beach. In spite of its lack of infrastructure, the town offers some of the best cuisine in the region showcasing a variety of flavours using only local ingredients.

Pousada Casa do Ceo is a little piece of heaven hidden in the Atlantic rainforest. This boutique bed & breakfast blends the architecture of Santa Catarina with the typical decoration, food and hospitality from Minas Gerais. The location allows you to leave the car behind and get lost in nature and in the irresistible charm of this undiscovered beach town. All suites are spacious and super comfortable, around the pool with waterfall and deck with panoramic views to the valley, lagoon and the beautiful dunes of Siriú. The beach and the main street in town are within a 10 minute walk through a tree-covered trail. This is one of those places that once experienced, you will never want to leave.
