**Yoga Retreat Location and Accommodation**
Our retreat is located on a hillside between the Historic town of Loulé and the Algarve coast, surrounded by Almond and orange trees away from the crowds yet close to the beautiful beaches.
We will stay in a Southern Portuguese estate made of three beautifully-designed traditional farmhouses, each with a large shaded terrace, a swimming pool and a dining area.
The rooms and cottages have a country-style décor. Each has an outdoor sitting area, a fully equipped kitchen and a private bathroom. Many rooms have a private terrace. Each room has an access to a swimming pool. All rooms have free wifi.
**Yoga program and daily schedule**
We’ll start the day in the morning (Sun-Fri*) with a dynamic extra long Iyengar yoga class with Asaf. The yoga program is designed to develop and deepen your yoga practice in any level of practice. We will focus on different yoga subjects and pose groups each day in a gradual and highly personal manner. Each morning class is a mini workshop. We have a fully equipped yoga studio so you do not have to bring anything from home.
After the morning class we will meet for a rich and healthy brunch together and set off on our day. You will have ample free time during the day to go to the beach, explore the nature and villages around, or just relax by the pool with a good book. We will offer many joined (optional) activities such as hiking, horseback riding, nature walks
In the evenings we will enjoy a 2 hour restorative yoga class where we will also learn Pranayama, some philosophy and practices of mindfulness and centring awareness.
We will end each day with a joined dinner although you could feel free to explore the exquisite restaurants in the villages or the beaches around. We will give you all the best tips.
