Full Description

The purpose of our holiday retreat is for you to recharge yourself in a comfortable setting with everything taken care of. If you are travelling solo or with your partner you will be enjoying your time with like minded yogis.

Casa das Videiras is a classic Portuguese colonial house, tastefully updated keeping the old world charm. There is an atmospheric cobbled courtyard, pool, sun terrace and small private bar. The hillside setting with lush landscape and birdsong is the perfect setting to sit and relax or read a book. The garden terrace overlooks a tree-filled valley and there are hammocks dotted amongst the olives. We like to give people their privacy which is why each yogi gets their own private room (some with private bathrooms).

Your yoga sessions are carefully fashioned to help you get back to your true nature away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and the outdoor yoga platform is fully equipped with mats, props, bolsters, blankets and belts for your comfort. The morning is an energetic practice of hatha vinyasa flow and the afternoon a fusion of gentle yoga with restorative relaxation techniques all therapeutically applied. During your stay you will gain insight into your body/mind whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner. To enhance this knowledge I organise an experienced massage therapist to visit during your stay. She in turn informs me where your body would respond to some remedial work so I can tailor a personal practice for you. This one-on-one personalised attention is unique in a retreat setting.

There is a pool to help you cool off in the hot summer days and comfortable social spaces for a juice or an evening glass of wine. The house is set in a small Portuguese village with a river beach close by, its balance with the land makes a beautiful fit for our yoga retreat.
Meals are vegetarian and prepared fresh daily from local produce. Our menu has been tested and honed in the Sweetyoga kitchen and you can expect flavours from North Africa and Asia. They are all wholesome and delicious! We also take you for a memorable picnic mid-retreat to a stunning river beach for some free time. If you are adventurous you may opt to go wild swimming.
