Come and enjoy a week of yoga in the peaceful, rural hills of Portugal. Brejo Fundeiro Centre sits in a tranquil location in the forested hills of central Portugal. The Valley is surrounded by eucalyptus, pine and cork oak trees. Our setting for the week will be the 3 storey 100 year old manor house with yoga studio, swimming pool, barbecue area, courtyard, small fruit orchard and organic vegetable garden.
There will be two daily yoga sessions encorporating an eclectic fusion of different styles of yoga from flowing vinyasa sequences to restorative yin postures. There will be a fresh blend of postures, breathing practices, meditation, sound practices and relaxation, created specifically to invite you to become aware of your natural, spacious state of being. There will be free time during the day for you to either relax around the centre/pool or explore the area. Specific day trips can be organised by our lovely hosts prior to our arrival eg. guided tours to Convento de Christo, Tomar, guided walks around Brejo, boat trips from Dornes, horse riding, olive oil soap making etc….
Accommodation is full board and the meals will be prepared with care from the highest quality organic produce either from the garden or from local suppliers. All food will be homemade from scratch. Meals will all be nutritionally balanced vegetarian food. There are a number of different accommodation options which vary in price. Most rooms are en suite and you can find further info on the accommodation here.
I have been on two retreats with Michele and have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the wonderful restorative balance of yoga practice and good nutrition.
Michele is a teacher who includes an element of fun and has the ability to assess the mood and ability of the class so all levels of experience are catered for.
All this in a peaceful location guaranteed to recharge the batteries!
