Back to nature: a week long yoga retreat in south west portugal 

SAturday 28 April -  sATURDAY 5 May 2018

Monte Orada is a magical retreat centre nestled into a green valley near beautiful surf beaches in south west Portugal.  With a full week to slowly unravel in the sunshine, this retreat will be a joyous deep dive into nature and yoga practice to unfurl and come home to our most natural selves.

When we spend time fully immersed in nature, an undeniable shift can be felt.  Monte Orada is an organic farm that offers us "unlimited silence within an evergreen forest reservation, amazing canopy vistas, endless creek trails and a unique night sky".  It is also near to beautiful beaches, boasts a natural swimming pool and has access to breath taking hiking trails. 

The retreat is designed to offer a space in which yoga practitioners can take their practice deeper in a held, beautiful space.  On this retreat you can enjoy:

  • Twice daily asana practice (both explorative and creative vinyasa flow and restorative practice) with one day off on Wednesday to have a beach day/ surf/ relax 
  • Morning sessions: guided meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and kriyas (morning practices)
  • Integrated yoga philosophy discussion/ lectures
  • Sunset chanting and sacred sound
  • 3 organic vegetarian meals day 
  • A Thai yoga massage workshop
  • Deep relaxation & quiet time
  • Meeting wonderful people and cultivating a sense of community
  • Free time to swim in the natural pool, hike, go to the beach, surf, swim, read...

This is a open level retreat with lots of options during asana class.  You can just come as you are and enjoy.
