Retreat Weeks

Rainbows on your Eyelashes

Yoga Teacher: Vonetta Winter

Vonetta's 2019 Retreats:  March 10, April 21, June 2, July 21

<<< Click the photos here to see our other retreats or view them in the Calendar.

Being enclosed by the gentle rolling green hills of the Portuguese Forests easily invites our attention inward away from the normal concerns of daily life, heightening our awareness of our more intuitive or creative capacities. Released from the bombardment of modern stimuli, the countryside softens us and we become more conscious of our experience in each moment, fostering a childlike joy in the now, in the play of light through a window, through a Forest or through our own eyelashes.

As we take our early Morning walks we become more attentive to the details of the Forest, the texture of stone or the smell of the woodland floor underfoot.  We earn and give ourselves the time to observe the changing nature of the light at Morning Yoga Practice and Evening Sunset Practice. The silence and noises of the countryside provide the natural soundtrack to Guided Meditation as we enlighten our imaginations through contemplation of the Chakra System.

The heat of the midday sun on our backs while dangling feet in a cold running stream rejuvenates us. Medicated therapeutic or relaxing oil massage soothes away the accumulated muscular aggravations as we become more connected to the intuitive, mysterious, and not easily verbalized aspects of ourselves so that we may return to our lives with a little less tension and with a little more delight.

Cultivate Contentment

Yoga Teacher: Vonetta Winter

Vonetta's 2019 Retreats:  March 10, April 21, July 14 & 21

Being cared for on retreat in a family home; having a simple and comfortable space to rest; wholesome food to nourish; revitalizing mud for the skin; experienced therapists to ease away persistent aches and pains; good company with time for meaningful conversation; silence and opportunity for reflection; early morning walks and late afternoon swims; visits to remote country villages, sampling the local fair. All of these things makes it just a little easier for those of us feeling stressed out and pulled in all directions, to feel restored. 

A retreat encourages us to foster expectations in harmony with our experiences so that a more peaceful or blissful state, contentment, can arise.  Daily Morning Yoga Classes designed to challenge your strength, flexibility and stamina will be broken down into easily accessible steps so that the complete beginner along with the more advanced Practioner can both experience the contentment that yoga posture practice encourages.  This Dynamic and Yin Yoga inspired week is aimed at broadening our hearts, opening our hips, and finally lengthening our limbs and spine so that we may walk a little taller in our lives, contentedly guided by each and every moment of life and each and every breath.

Flow with Fleur

Yoga teacher: Fleur van Hille

2019 Retreat dates: June 16, 23, 30, July 28, Aug 4, 11, 25, Sep 1

The hectic pace of life for many of us these days asks a lot of our 'head'. Getting caught up in our thoughts can make life difficult, it moves us away from our true selves and we might even forget what we really want in life. Instead of nourishing these restless thoughts, we invite you to open and listen to your heart. Maybe suddenly life is not so confusing anymore.

This week, music and nature will lead us the way. As music touches the soul, we will flow our yoga practice on inspiring vibrations. We will become aware of our breath and how it influences our being. Away from our daily routine, out in the beautiful natural landscape of this valley in Portugal, with nourishing food and therapeutic massage, let’s flow!

2019 Retreat: July 21-27

We are looking forward to welcoming our friend Nerina to this special retreat in July. It is a great opportunity to escape from our daily habits that prevent good sleep and learn how bad daytime habits such as: skipping breakfast, running on adrenaline, being permanently connected, alcohol, sugar and caffeine, all create barriers to quality, restorative sleep at night.  The daily routine at Vale de Moses of morning yoga classes with Vonetta, nutritious food, hill walking, river swimming with massage and acupuncture treatments will help reinforce the sleep-inducing habits that Dr Ramlakhan will teach us during her afternoon workshops.

We spend roughly a third of our lives sleeping but this magical process is still a mystery.  On this sleep/yoga retreat you will learn about: Why we sleep?  How should we sleep?  Busting myths and misconceptions. Your unique relationship with sleep. Sleep, technology and nature. How sattvic (pure) sleep heals mind, body and spirit. Sleep and the retreat experience. The secrets of the Sleep Whisperer – tools for getting sattvic sleep and amazing vitality in your everyday life. What to do when you get home – taking your retreat experience back into your everyday life.

Yoga with Ali Burrell

Yoga Teacher: Ali Burrell

2019 retreat date: June 2 to 8

“Tensions are our guests; we have invited them. Relaxation is our nature, we don’t have to invite it. You don’t have to relax; you have to just stop inviting tensions, and relaxation will start on it's own accord.” - Osho

The magical and restorative powers of Vale de Moses will provide you with the perfect backdrop to unwind and feel nurtured, whilst the fusion of yoga and Pilates classes will help you to reconnect to your centre and feel physically and mentally realigned, revitalised and rejuvenated. You will be invited to breathe deeply and peel back the layers of tension and residue to deliver you sweetly back to yourself and your true nature.

This week will celebrate the similarities and differences between yoga and Pilates. Morning yoga practices will be breath initiated, mindful and flowing. At times we’ll go slow and keep it simple and soothing and other times we’ll pick up the intensity with some deep and strong poses. You will be encouraged to journey inside and explore your own felt sense awareness to facilitate presence and connection to yourself and discover freedom, clarity and joy.

In our afternoon Pilates workshops we will explore what ‘core’ really means and learn how to move from our centre whilst experiencing first hand the transformative power that this has in enhancing our yoga practice, making it safer, more powerful, graceful and fluid.

All are welcome and no previous experience of yoga or Pilates is required.

Live Your Truth

Yoga Teacher: Mars Gossi

Retreat dates 2019: April 28, May 5, June 9, Oct 20

We find joy and inspiration when we are truly connected to our deepest truths and heartfelt desires… when we align body, head and heart. But sometimes our busy lives leave us feeling a little dizzy and unsure of our true north. Perhaps some space to breath, reflect and dream is what we deserve?

Give yourself that space to reconnect to your inner compass. During twice daily yoga, inspired by ashtanga vinyasa, vinyasa flow, and yin yoga, we will delve deep into our hearts to shed light on our truth. We will connect with nature and its rhythm to release old stories and invite new perspectives to our lives. We will explore the power of journaling, rituals, breathing exercises, sound, touch and meditation to help nurture our unique journeys and live our truth. There will also be plenty of time to just be and embrace the raw beauty of the valley.

This retreat is led by Mars, an Australian yoga teacher based in Europe. Her intention is to create space that allows safe, honest, joyful self-enquiry and transformation. Visit her website and follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

Balance your Being

Yoga teachers: Chloe and Dan

Date: Jan 27 to Feb 3

The journey of life is often turbulent, always interesting, and ever changing. Our circumstances are in constant flux, and our power and freedom lies in our responses to the everyday dynamism of human experience. Yoga is a powerful practice that enables us to consciously carve out this space between stimulus and response, and to recover our balance as we take each step on the twists and turns of this adventure we call life.

The notion of balance lies at the heart of this retreat week, as we explore all poles of the practice; strength and softness, movement and stillness, yin and yang. Cultivating the soft power of breath as you flow and grow, still and slow, we invite you to seek retreat from the hustle and bustle of what can become an everyday clamour, journey with us to the lush mountainous forest of Portugal, and allow nature to engulf you as you restore your balance.

Your morning practice will be an invigorating and energising vinyasa flow yoga class, in which you will awaken your body through powerful movement and pranayama, and open and strengthen into the yang aspect of the practice. As the sun sets later in the day we will draw in for a deep immersive yin session, in which you will steep in the medicine of stillness, seeking the space to soften into every layer of the body-mind. Flowing to stillness, you will benefit from the love and attention of two experienced yoga teachers, providing visual and verbal guidance, as well as physical adjustment, press and massage (if desired).

Accessible to anyone at any stage in their yoga practice, this retreat week will enable you to explore and play your own challenge level, from beginner to advanced, and recover your ability to soften into strength, as well as to rest and digest. You can hear more about Chloe and Dan here, and we’d love to hear more about you over some nutritious and nourishing soul food in the forest.

Prices: 1000€ each to stay in one of our shared stone cottages, or as a couple in one of our private farmhouse double bedrooms. 1300€ for a farmhouse bedroom as single occupancy.

Yoga with Maryrose

Teacher: Maryrose Loxley

Date: November 3 to 9, 2019

This restorative retreat with Maryrose will be centred on a traditional Hatha Yoga practise.  Over the years Maryrose and has accumulated ideas and techniques from other traditions, so her classes include elements such as Dru Yoga Vinyasa and Alexander Technique alignment and relaxation practises.  The asana practise will be gentle, slow and in time with the breath. Sometimes we work with the help of a partner.  Each session will include strength work, flexibility, co-ordination and balance and will end with some time for relaxation. Meditation is an important part of Maryrose’s classes so, in the afternoons, after the asana practise, we’ll take time to enjoy a longer visualisation or meditation before supper.

Vale de Moses is a wonderful place to remind us of our connection to the elements and this will form the theme for this week’s practise. Combined with a massage or two, nourishing vegetarian food and a few walks in the autumnal forests, this retreat will be a wonderfully recuperative time. Everyone of all ages is welcome, whether you are new to yoga or have been practicising for many years.
