APRIL 16 – 22 ,2017
Join us from for a week of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, horse riding, beach, nature, delicious food and so much more in the stunning surroundings of the western Algarve Coast line.
The exclusive retreat center is located on the green mountain, overlooking the abundant nature of Portugal. At Montevelho you will find a spacious yoga shala, stunning 360 degrees views over Portuguese rich nature and the powerful ocean. You will feel the energy in your practice. This impressive yoga eco center was built exclusively for retreats. You will find a swimming lake on site, an organic permacultural garden for the fruits and vegetables on our plates. Eco resort Montevelho – sustainable from the core. You can enjoy natural and holistic horse back riding and massages in a mini SPA with sauna – all on site. The small fisher village Carrapateira is near by. Explore the beauty of the Portuguese culture. The rooms are spacious and all separated into a bed and a living room. Every room offers a terrace with a day bed and a hammock for stunning views and relaxation.
You will explore your inner world through the teachings of mindfulness meditation. It’s when we turn inwards and see our innermost strength and beauty that we become strong enough to liberate the true essence of our hearts.
In the Hatha Yoga practice, we will come from the very foundation and core of our bodies into the freedom and expansion of the heart. From there we can feel a heart opened blueprint in the body ready to unlock our true potential.
Enjoy organic delicious meals with products from the garden and from the region. We offer a light breakfast (tea, coffee, fruits and energy balls). After the practice, we gather for a delightful full brunch with all what you wish for. In the evenings the dinner invites you to the dawn of the countryside.
