We offer a Yoga, Taichi and Qigong retreat from the 17th to the 24th of July 2021 on the Portuguese southeast coast in Monte Da Orada, in the countryside of Alentejo. It is an eco-sustainable center located 1.5 hours from Faro and 2.5 hours from Lisbon in a green valley surrounded by untamed nature and wild beaches nearby.
The permaculture-inspired retreat center grows organic greens and herbs in the garden to provide their guests with delicious and nutritious vegetarian dishes. It offers various accommodation options, a bio pool, outdoor and indoor places to practice and 71 hectares of nature and calm.

The retreat follows a holistic concept, providing an exceptionally diverse training. The goal is to combine natural living and the practice of Yoga, Qigong, and Taichi to disconnect from the outer world and reconnect with yourself. Every day starts with one hour of meditation and pranayama before breakfast. A morning practice of Vinyasa Yoga follows. Until lunch time, we will practice silence in order to allow the participant to keep the focus inside. At 12, lunch is served. In the afternoon, you are free to rest in Monte Orada, to go to the beach, take surf lessons or go for a hike and discover the beautiful region of Alentejo. In the evening, we meet for a soft practice of Qigong, Taichi or Yoga before sharing dinner together. The teachers are Nuno Damaso and his daughter Nina Damaso (more info here).
