This retreat is now fully booked.
// 13th-19th June 2015
Dear yogis and yoginis,
Please find below all the details about our next yoga retreat this year. After Spain and Italy, we opted for the Algarve, in Southern Portugal!
The property we will be staying at is called Monte na Luz and is set in the hills, north of Loulé. It is spread over 2 hectares and has a lovely swimming pool. The rooms are simple and spread over the main building and three small houses. Every room has its own bathroom.
The retreat is an opportunity to take your yoga practice deeper and also recharge your batteries in a beautiful surrounding.
Following a similar structure as our previous retreats, there will be two yoga sessions a day and a lot of free time.
We will practice in a spacious (100m2) octagonal studio filled with natural light and overlooking the hills.
Mats, bolsters, belts and blocks are all available on site.
The morning session will take place from 7.15 to 9.30 and be followed by a well-deserved breakfast. The evening session will be from 17.15 to 19.15 followed by dinner. Lunch will also be served on the premises.
The grounds of Monte na Luz offer a beautiful space to walk and relax. It has views over both the ocean and the hills. The nearest beaches are about a 20 minutes drive away and the city of Loulé can make for a lovely outing with its castle, churches and market.

Please note that all the meals provided will be vegetarian. Expect delicious, healthy and varied food!
Food intolerances can be catered for so please get in touch if you have any dietary requirements and I will pass them on to our host Frank who will advise our cooks.

Faro is the closest airport , about a 25 minutes drive to Monte na Luz.
For a transfer from Faro airport to Monte na Luz, a cab costs about €27 per car (maximum 4 people).
Once you have reserved your space, please do not book your plane tickets until I can advise you on what flights to book (airline and times) as I will try to coordinate the group to minimise the cost and numbers of transfers. Of course that is unless you decide to hire a car or don't mind making your way to the property on your own.
To reserve your space, please drop me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A £300 deposit will be required on booking to secure your space and the remaining amount will be due in full by 1st May 2015.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get hold of me.
