A long weekend yoga retreat of natural sustainable living on 29th September till 2nd October 2017, sunshine, rest, mountain views, starry night skies, organic food straight from the earth, movement, breathing, bare feet, community and magic.
Our programme includes:
-wake-up tea with fresh herbs from the garden
– morning quiet meditation / relaxation
– fresh organic meals together
– daily sunset Yoga overlooking miles of mountains
– exploring the land
– a trip to Monsanto (the lovely Portuguese town, not the bad guys) – afternoon permaculture workshops
…all in the hands of three experienced guides, Kimberly, Laurence and Anya. Anya will be leading the yoga retreat and has been chosen to run our first retreats
Anya grew up by the sea in North East England and has been practising Yoga passionately for 15 years. She certified as a teacher at Spirit Yoga in Berlin, and has studied in several ashrams and advanced training schools across the world, including with Julie Martin and Emil Wendel. She has taught Yoga in the U.K., Thailand, Bali and Berlin where she is currently based. Her classes teach an invigorating, yet deeply relaxing variation of Vinyasa Flow Yoga, in which, the flow of postures becomes a steadily-paced and organic meditation in movement. Her path crossed with Kimberly and Laurence a few years ago while she was teaching in Bali, and we have been planning and dreaming of creating retreats together ever since – we are happy to say they are now coming to life!
Guests need to be okay with:
– bringing and using all natural washing products including sunscreen
– using an eco compost toilet
– peeing under a majestic open sky (i.e. under a tree 😉 )
– having animals around
Direct, comfortable buses travel to Fundao regularly from both Lisbon and Porto. From there, we will organise one group collection time. Taxis are available with advance booking if you choose to arrive at a different time.
