    A great break from a mad city life. A great combination of people and therapies to recharge...great space for yoga, great teaching. Wonderful massage and acupuncture - totally restorative. (more)Joanna Benn
    Excellent...perfect in so many ways. . There is an energy that runs through the place and you feel connected every waking moment; as you find a quiet moment by one of the water pools, or take a walk with one of the dogs, attending a yoga class, enjoying a good night’s sleep. It’s a healing place like no other. (more)sophia Hannay

    Portugal Vinyasa flow yoga retreat
    From
    €800
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Going down to the river and behaving like a hippopotamus.....by this I mean wallowing in the mud. It was not only fun but made the skin feel good too. Tips? Don't worry about what stage you are at in your yoga practice. The teachers are highly skilled and can guide you regardless of your level. I was a beginner and therefore enjoyed the afternoon sessions that focused more on pair yoga. Also buy some of their honey if you can......it is simply divine. Local benefits? Yes,...
