Revitalise at the yoga evolution health, healing & wellbeing retreat centre Portugal.
Welcome to the yoga evolution retreats centre. A six hectare traditional Portuguese estate set in the gorgeous countryside of central Portugal. The centre was founded by Peter & Sue in 2008. This is a place of authentic yogic practice with each moment being an opportunity to explore open awareness meditation.
The retreats are purposefully for a maximum of ten people giving you the space to socialise or spend time alone reading one of our many books from the library under an oak tree. We have pergolas and hammocks dotted all around the grounds so finding space is very easy. Each day here begins with the sounds of nature to help relax and restore with a morning cup of herbal tea from our dedicated guest kitchen overlooking the valley that is known as Barcelo. Four days a week we incorporate morning silence before and after practice so as not to create too much disturbance to our minds, which allows for a deeper yoga experience in a class environment. Our classes starts at eight in the morning and six in the evening.
Our theme here at the retreat centre is yoga and during your stay we aim to help evolve your practice by sharing the space and time to explore ashtanga, yin, meditation, and pranayama. We also have an in-depth bandha’s class which has been transformative for a lot of our yogi/yogini friends.
I feel truly blessed to find you in these tranquil mountains, thankyou for welcoming me into your wonderful home wisdom laughter food & animals vibrant spirits & beautiful souls. The week has been soo carefully thought out with the practice & workshops unfearling the layers of ashtanga & for leading me into the most beautiful meditations & giving space & silence to just breathe, just be & helping me find its beauty & stirrum sukham ! Especially loved the spirallic dynamics workshop & the instinctual hands on assists helping me to root down & open up. Thanks for showing me you can live your dreams, sad to leave but I am doing so balanced, inspired & grateful for the yogic path.
We have a selection of private single and twin guest rooms as well as a wooden cabin and three hand made wooden caravans. We do not expect you to share but if you do come with a friend then please request to stay in one of our twin rooms. Our home is a traditional nineteenth century Portuguese estate which has been restored to it's former beauty and has a large stone built house with beautiful Portuguese and English antique wooden features and furniture.
