Full Description

Yoga connects awareness to body and mind. Nature recharges the human soul. Life invites to play. Come and rediscover your own source of vitality and tranquility in the inspirational natural beauty of Portugal this fall.

Treat yourself to a week of delicious yoga enjoying freshly made meals and relaxing in the comfort of this beautiful retreat center in a stunning setting that gives you all that nature has to offer.

In seven days daily yoga, pranayama and meditation will bring you in touch with your own body, breath and mind in a way that will make you feel stronger and more at ease.

Sandra will guide you in daily Anusara® yoga classes that are suitable for all levels of practitioners. Be prepared to learn and progress in your practice, to enjoy and deepen the experience of connecting to your body and breath.

After this retreat you will return home feeling more energetic, more connected to your body and with clarity of mind, so you are ready to engage yourself in your life again!

During the retreat we will be staying at the beautiful eco resort ‘Monte Velho’. From the top of the ‘Monte’, we get to experience the stunning nature around us and the energy of the elements. Surrounded by the ocean and the trees in the valley we get to dive into deep relaxation.
The retreat center consists of a holistic center (Main House) and groups of rooms that are connected to it. The Main House offers a shared living room, an inside and outside area where we will enjoy our meals and a Spa with sauna and steam bath.

The rooms are grouped in sets of four with an ensuite living room and a private bathroom per room.
The suites are located in the main house and each consist of a double bedroom, private bathroom and a terrace.
The yoga classes will be held in the beautiful round yoga shala.
