ABOUT YOUR TEACHER - ANNETT MOTTLAU
Annett has been teaching for 18 years. Besides teaching her regular classes in Cascais, she has been running her retreats in Portugal since 2011.
The practice of yoga is an ideal way to balance the stresses of modern day life; helping us to stay healthy and young in mind, body, and spirit.
We start the day with a two-hour dynamic asana practice and a one and a half hour Restorative/Pranayama class in the afternoon. Further details on the program available on the site.
The groups are small so that students are able to get some personal attention; the yoga retreats are for all levels beginners with some regular yoga practice to intermediate. Students personally benefit and work on their individual challenges with the help of Annett´s teaching experience and help to develop your asana practice.
For beginners, the aim is to make you well versed on the important basics, while the advanced yoginis are assisted in evolving and working on their individual issues.
The yoga sessions take place in the new Yoga Shala, set up with all equipment needed for Iyengar Yoga; using props to help students practice the poses safely.
The classes are taught in English and in Danish if needed :)
Ayurvedic massages can be booked upon arrival at extra cost.
The Pine Star Lodge is new and fresh set in a beautiful garden giving you the feeling of space and calmness with the Ocean in front and the Sintra mountains rising behind you, just around the corner from the Praia Grande beach along the coastline.

There are five rooms in the main house on the first floor.
