About The Event
The retreat follows a holistic concept, providing an 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.
