Yoga Holiday Retreat

A seven day yoga retreat at a Portuguese colonial house on a lush hillside. This holiday offers a daily delicate fusion of morning hatha vinyasa and afternoon gentle yoga. From your yoga mat the backdrop is a tranquil valley of olives, pines and eucalyptus trees. The pool with sun loungers, olive tree hammocks, nature walks, mountain bikes, and a lovely river beach nearby help you retreat from modern life. We’ve thought of everything so you don’t have to!

Full Description

I have created a yoga retreat that I myself would like to go to. I have paid attention to comfort so the accommodation is great and you have a room all to yourself. The food is prepared daily with as much local produce as possible and its vegetarian to enhance your yoga experience. There is plenty to do in your spare time if you want to be active and plenty of quiet areas if you want to relax. We also have a sightseeing and picnic day out to a local beauty spot where you can go wild swimming!

The daily schedule is relaxed. Breakfast will be served from 8am onwards, the morning yoga session starts at 10am and finishes around 12noon. Lunch is served at 1pm. In the afternoon you can chose one of the many activities or simply relax by the pool or take a massage. The afternoon yoga session starts at 5pm and your evening meal is served at 8pm. There are alcoholic drinks available at local prices.

The week is built around six people maximum so you will get all the attention you want, all the space you need and plenty of laughs with like minded people. Blue skies, sun and mountain air provide the rest.

Yoga

The yoga will help you reconnect with your true self in peaceful surroundings. The poses (asanas) are fresh, the breath work (pranayama) is life giving and nothing will be beyond anyone’s capabilities as I have the knowledge to introduce you to the new or take you deeper into the familiar. I approach my teaching and practice with inquisitiveness, intelligence with a good dose of humour. I have specifically designed the yoga sessions to help you be more of who you already are so you don’t need to be experienced. If you wish to skip a session that’s fine too.

The aim is that you go home feeling replenished and restored ready to handle modern life again.
