YOGA RETREAT LOCATION & ACCOMODATION
Our retreat is located on a hillside between the Historic town of Loulé and the Algarve coast, surrounded by Almond and Orange trees, away from the crowds yet close to the beautiful beaches.
We will stay in a Southern Portuguese estate made of three beautifully-designed traditional farmhouses, each with a large shaded terrace, a swimming pool and a dining area.
The rooms and cottages have a country-style décor. Each has an outdoor sitting area, a fully equipped kitchen and a private bathroom. Many rooms have a private terrace. Each room has access to a swimming pool. All rooms have free wifi.
DATES & TIMES OF YOGA HOLIDAY
The retreat will take place from Friday to Friday on the first two weeks of June. Just before the July heat and the holiday wave of tourism – it’s the best time of the year.
Arrival and check in are on Friday May 29 / June 5 (from 13:00). We will welcome you and give you all the information you need to settle. You can get comfortable in your room, take a dip in the pool, explore the area and join us for a meet & greet early evening at our welcome dinner.
Departure and check out is on the following Friday June 5 / 12.
YOGA RETREAT PROGRAM AND DAILY SCHEDULE
We’ll start the day in the morning (SAT-THU*) with a dynamic extra-long Iyengar yoga class with Asaf. The yoga program is designed to develop and deepen your yoga practice in any level of practice. We will focus on different yoga subjects and pose groups each day in a gradual and highly personal manner. Each morning class is a mini workshop. We have a fully equipped yoga studio so you do not have to bring anything from home.
After the morning class we will meet for a rich and healthy brunch together and set off on our day. You will have ample free time during the day to go to the beach, explore the nature and villages around, or just relax by the pool with a good book. We will offer many joined (optional) activities such as hiking, horseback riding, nature walks etc…
In all evenings (except Tuesday) we will enjoy a 2 hour restorative yoga class where we will also learn Pranayama, some philosophy and practices of mindfulness and centring awareness.
We will end most days with a joined dinner although you could feel free to explore the exquisite restaurants in the villages or the beaches around. We will give you all the best tips.
*Tuesday is a free day for you to travel and rest. There will be a morning yoga class and brunch. As in all days, the yoga shala will be available for Self practice or mediation throughout the day.
REACHING OUR YOGA RETREAT IS EASY & CHEAP!
There are many cheap flights available to Faro airport which is only 20 min away.
Ryanair and Transavia have direct flights from Amsterdam and Eindhoven and TAP runs cheap flights via Lisbon. We advise to search with Skyscanner for best options.
From Faro airport there are many options like sharing a taxi or an airport shuttle (upon request) but we totally recommend renting a car. It is the best way to travel and explore this little piece of heaven we’re staying in.
3-4 people can share a rental car and its costs. We are happy to help you find driving partners. Feel free to contact us about it.
