Portugal Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation & Hiking Retreat
The Yoga retreat is geared to Iyengar levels II and up, and all students are welcome. I will work with your individual needs and show you how to modify the postures to maximise the benefits of your practice regardless of physical abilities or the level of your experience.
You will leave stronger, more flexible, open-hearted and rejuvenated.
Type of Event
The Porto International Airport (OPO) is a one-hour drive from the retreat centre, and there will be a shuttle bus from Porto to the retreat centre on October 13th at 3:30 PM.
Each day begins with meditation followed by an asana class. There will be two vegetarian meals prepared for us, as well as an afternoon restorative yoga and pranayama class followed by Patanjali's Yoga Sutra study. After dinner there is meditation ... followed by silence.
Each day there will be personal time to recharge and reconnect with yourself, with nature, and with your fellow yogis. You can hike the local trails, swim in the pool, have a spa treatment, or just chill-out .
There will be optional excursions to choose from, for example: the Douro Valley, hiking in the adjacent Peneda Gerês National Park, or perhaps a Fado performance in a local vineyard for a good cry ;-)
