Mindful Movement Retreat

5-12 October 2019

Monte Velho Eco Retreat, Aljezur, Portugal


Join us as we escape to the beautiful Portuguese coast for a week of mindful movement, deep relaxation, sun, sea and outdoor nourishment.

Monte Velho is an eco retreat centre surrounded by lush pine trees and rolling hills, and is just a few minutes drive from the rugged Atlantic coast. The retreat has two purpose built yoga studios – both offering panoramic views of the hills and the sea –  a lake suitable for swimming; on-site horse riding facilities; a spa with sauna and steam room; and a beautiful zen garden for resting and soaking up the sunshine. Additional activities such as surfing lessons, dolphin watching, massages, Turkish baths and guided walks are also available.

The tone for the week will be relaxed, nourishing and nurturing. We will enjoy twice daily movement classes to build strength and balance in the body, as well as practising mindful breathing practices, guided mediation and deeply relaxing Yoga Nidra. The movement classes will be suitable for all, including complete beginner, and will focus on improving your overall movement habits, so the good work can continue long after our week together.

The cost includes:

– all classes and group led sessions, including twice daily mindful movement classes;

– three delicious, vegetarian meals per day;

– shared accommodation;

– use of the onsite facilities including swimming in the lake or enjoying the sauna

Flights and transport is not included in the cost.

During the week we will have a day off to explore the area, either as a group or separately. The picturesque Algarve Coast is just 45 minutes drive from Monte Velho, and the pretty town of Aljezur, with its large indoor market, just 20 minutes drive away.
