This ReTREAT is an opportunity to restore balance, connection and reboost your practice in the midst of nature of South West Portugal, living a pure and simple life.
THE HEART OF MY TEACHINGS – KRIYAS, PRANAYAMA & ASHTANGA YOGA
These are the yogic tools that we will apply to support and deepen our connections to our very essence.
Whatever our paths may be. Really diving into deepening our practice, can do wonders for the spirits.
The skills we learn and transformations we experience when we dedicate time and energy to our spiritual natures is invaluable, and added immeasurable beauty and wealth to our entire lives and the people around us.
We will open the mornings with ancient yogic practices: meditation, chanting, kriyas, pranayama and asana based on Ashtanga Yoga (Led or Mysore style).
You will receive individual guidance and adjustments which is the traditional way to transmit understanding of Ashtanga Yoga.
The Shala in the mornings will be in the yurt.
The afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy of Pranayama and Ashtanga Yoga and certain topics to discuss, playfully explore asanas and Q&A to deepen understanding of your practice and yoga.
LOCATION – VALVERDE ECO LODGE IN SOUTH WEST PORTUGAL
The retreat place is an eco-friendly gem located in a remote green valley near Carrapateira, where hills and trees surround you, and many beautiful beaches are just around the corner. We will sleep in tipis and in the guesthouse, and practise in the yoga yurt or on a shaded platform with a view over the valley. We will eat delicious home made meals prepared by our in house chef, well known for her creative plant based meals, using locally grown and organic ingredients. Please find more info about the location on the valverde-retreats website.

Transfer from Faro airport to the venue
We strongly recommend to fly to Faro, which is only about 1,5 hours drive from the retreat site. As it is located in the middle of nature, with no public transport nearby, you will need your own transport to get around. The car rental at Faro airport is fairly cheap. I can help you to connect to other participants in case you would like to share cars.
Flying to Faro: Transavia flies to Faro, from Amsterdam, Rotterdam; Ryanair also flies from Eindhoven
