Yoga Health, Healing & Wellbeing Centre
Peter & Sue at the Yoga Evolution Retreat Centre in the heart of rural Portugal for a one or two week Ashtanga Yoga & Yin Yoga Retreat or vinyasa yoga flow.
Yoga Retreat Centre
The retreat centre is a purpose built yoga space spread out over thirteen acres of a beautiful valley with a variety of rooms available, ranging from single, twin, double and even eco caravans for those who are wanting a complete digital detox. If walking is your thing then you have the option of taking long peaceful strolls along the forest tracks surrounded by the birds singing. If you are looking to work on your tan then why not stay by the side of the natural sea saltwater swimming pool on one of the many pool loungers. You can also take one of the many books available from the library inside the lovely Moroccan style lounge, or just rest in a hammocks hanging between the many pine, cork oak, olive and madronia trees all over the property.
The yoga practice taught at the centre is based on ashtanga vinyasa yoga and yin yoga as well as many other vinyasa flow yoga styles. Each day the class start at 8 am with a mindfulness meditation practice to help bring the mind to the present moment of experience, then after the meditation you will slowly start to build your yoga practice from the foundation up. Peter has been teaching ashtanga vinyasa yoga for nearly fifteen years and has developed more balance to this time tested practice. His teaching style is gentle but very concentrated with a great sense of humour.
The evening yin yoga practice which starts at 6pm is all about resting and restoring organ health and vitality as you will have the opportunity of learning many different sequences of yin postures to stimulate the meridians and release a build up of toxins in the body.
All of the food cooked on retreat is delicious vegetarian whole food which is cooked by our resident nutritional therapist. The diet is healthy and balanced which will leave you feeling detoxified and refreshed, full of vitality.
