“Let the Yoga work deeply for you” Portugal Retreat – May 26 – 31, 2024
May 26 @ 8:00 am - May 31 @ 5:00 pm
Join us in a spring Sama yoga retreat in the amazing coast of Portugal!
“I wish to welcome you to a new great place I’ve discovered in Portugal. I was blown away!
Last October was truly fantastic retreat with the setting, food and rooms all at top quality. Portuguese earth mamas cooked with local produce and sang the love into the home cooked delights. The yoga Shala and guest rooms are really spacious and have everything we could need, including a view of the Sea.
It’s such a supportive environment for the deep classes to happen.
Another bonus is it was easy to get too, being one hour easy drive from Lisbon.
Bring your bathing suit for the beaches are amazing with white sands and playful little waves.
The yoga is moving nicely through me these days, reliably serving well our present needs and wishes.
Be lovely to see you there!
This retreat is designed to deepen one in all aspects of Yoga.
Each class is rich with life wisdom and subtle alignment.
The movements are quite easy to learn, moving from classical Hatha Yoga poses to the magic flow of the asana, and balanced with stillness which helps to release a lifetime of holding patterns in the nervous system. Additionally, we will learn about Marma Points (similar to the acupressure points in Shiatsu), Ayurveda and chanting mantras.
The Yoga Classes are supported by guided meditation and short but important talks.
You will enjoy these unique yoga classes in a yoga shala with incredible ocean views.
We will learn a lot! We will come away with tools to take care of ourselves and enhance our current Yoga practice and lifestyle.
Last year those who wished, learned a longer mantra as a great take away and life-long blessing.
All Levels are welcome, even beginners will find the movements, with some variations, accessible, while more experienced students will definitely appreciate the depth and uniqueness of the Sama Yoga style.
The daily program will be enriched with trips to the most special natural places and trekkings out of the turistic tracks, organized with care and love, to allow us integrate the practice in nature and discover the beauty of this beautiful region of Portugal without having to plan, prepare, think how to reach each spot.
We will also have time for resting in a unique and relaxing property in nature and be delighted with vegetarian and vegan, organic cuisine, prepared with love by an experienced chef in healthy eating
*This retreat is organised by Shama Retreats.
We will stay in a unique villa reseved exclusively for our group. A Portuguese country house with a privileged location, overlooking the sea and the valley.
The villa is located on an 11-hectare estate, among pine trees and fruit trees, surrounded by silence, tranquility and a starry sky. The farm has an organic garden, with production of lemons, figs, oranges, peaches, persimmons, quinces, etc.
Walking along a beautiful 20-minute walk, you reach the wide natural beach of San Lorenzo, perfect for walks and for a quiet swimn.
The villa has single, double rooms and apartments, all with private bathroom and terrace.
We will practice in a newly built 120 m2 rooftop yoga shala, fully equipped, overlooking the ocean, which will allow us to practice with amazing views.
The vegetarian, healthy and delicious meals, will be created by two amazing portuguese private chefs, specially hired for our retreat.
A unique paradise to integrate your practice, rest, eat consciously and allow yourself to be healed by nature and relaxation.
