Why Portugal?

Corc Yoga was born from Founder Christine Moghadam’s love for Portugal. It was during a life-changing trip to Portugal that Christine discovered cork, the country’s natural treasure. Inspired by Portugal’s beautiful cork forests and the livelihood that the cork industry supports, Christine was motivated to design a purpose-driven product that supports people and the planet. The result? The creation of the world’s most sustainable yoga mat created entirely of cork and free from any rubber or plastic, allowing one to quite literally ground their practice and reconnect with nature.

With community as the heartbeat of Corc Yoga, Christine had the vision to expand beyond the yoga mat by cultivating an experience centered around Corc Yoga’s core values: people, planet, and purpose. These are the core values that inspire and motivate Corc Yoga to design and manufacture luxury cork products while having the least impact on the environment.

In the search to find a place, Christine discovered Tivoli Évora Ecoresort, a 4-star luxury resort tucked away in the city of Évora, a historic World-Heritage City just 45 minutes outside of Lisbon. Born on the Alentejo landscape and built on strong environmental values, this hotel seamlessly integrates sustainability with Corc Yoga’s core values. As both an international destination for nature lovers and travelers, Évora is home to Portugal’s cork forests and the perfect destination for Corc Yoga's inaugural retreat.

Corc Yoga was born following a life-changing trip to Portugal. Our vision since the beginning was to expand beyond the idea of just a yoga mat, and go deeper into our community by cultivating a festival - an experience not just focused on yoga, but one centered around the lifestyle of travel, community, sustainability and self-care. On a search to find a location that aligned with our vision, we discovered a beautiful hidden-gem in the city of Evora - the world’s first cork hotel, a sustainable eco-resort embedded in the cork region of Portugal.
Yes! Here at Corc Yoga we believe yoga is a lifestyle not just a physical practice. Community is the heart of Corc Yoga and we would love for you to join!
Evora weather is dry and warm during the summer months, so make sure to bring your summer gear! Closer to the date of the retreat, we will send you a checklist to make sure you have everything you need.
No, we will be providing a Corc Yoga mat for each person.
In addition to the hotel amenities, the city of Evora is a must visit destination and only a 10 minute drive from the hotel. We will have transportation available at certain hours of the day (included with your costs) and Uber/Taxis are always available at your disposal.
You do not need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself to find the perfect amount of activity for you. We support you in doing as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.. However: remember this is an active vacation, and we are giving you as much value as we can for what you signed up for! (personally, we wouldn’t want you to miss a thing!) The schedule gives you a sense of the flow of each day. It’s always subject to change, depending upon the needs of the group, weather, etc.
Connect with nature on a deeper level and surround yourself with the most giving tree, the cork tree as we take you on a jeep ride (hike is optional) through a family-owned cork farm. Develop a love and appreciation for cork as you learn about the harvesting process, history and heritage of the cork trees.
The majority of attendees may come by themselves. Although you may come alone, you will leave with new, lifelong friends!
