Portugal Yoga Holiday 2020
Relax, Re-energise, Enjoy seven days of yoga in picturesque Portugal.
Set in a ten-acre estate of orange trees, warm and welcoming,
the retreat offers tranquility, nature and nurture.
It’s the perfect place to explore and deepen your practice.
Based on the hillside above Almancil in southern Portugal, yet only 7km from the beach,
the accommodation is arranged over three converted guest-houses.
The interiors are lovingly furnished with warm colours in a relaxed country style and have a
fully equipped kitchen and relaxing lounge and terrace areas.
It really is a home away from home atmosphere.
There are two private pools, cosy sunny terraces, wonderful green areas to explore and fruit orchards
where you can pick you own oranges, lemons, grapefruits and avocados.
Simply unpack your bag and instantly feel at home.
There will be 2 classes most days, with 10 in total.
The classes will take place in a spacious, airy and cool purpose built studio,
which opens onto a peaceful walled garden with a lawn for practice in the open air.
Fully equipped with all the necessary props, including wall ropes,
it provides the perfect place from which to explore our yoga practice.
The morning classes will be active and energizing,
developing our understanding and deepening our experience of new and familiar postures
and will focus on alignment to create freedom and space within the body mind.
The evening session will be recuperative in nature, using props to support the body inducing deep relaxation,
fostering the stillness and peace required to introduce pranayama (breathing) techniques,
which build energy and foster serenity.
The meals will be freshly prepared, protein rich vegetarian meals, using locally grown and organic food whenever possible.
Lovingly prepared by Wendy and Elena, it is plentiful and delicious. Brunch and dinner (except dinner on Monday night) is included for each full day that we are there.
Brunch will include cereal, yogurt, fruits, breads, homemade preserves, salads, cheese and fresh juice from the oranges picked on site.
Dinner is three courses of an international/Mediterranean flavor, with a huge variety of dishes over the week.
What else is there to do?
During your free time in between classes you can… Curl up with a book on a cosy terrace. Swim or sunbathe.
Enjoy a variety of bodywork or traditional massages from skilled and carefully chosen therapists.
Explore the surrounding area and beaches. Walk for miles without seeing a soul. Meet new like-minded friends.
Nap in the afternoon – why not?
