Yoga & Rejuvenation in Portugal

Yoga & Rejuvenation in Portugal

Gathering on the dramatic cliffs overlooking the sea, where south-western Europe sinks into the Atlantic, you will spend a week renewing your mind, body and spirit. In a region enriched by powerful nature and fresh ocean air, you will have the chance to dive deeply into your yoga practice and indulge in pure relaxation. Our holistic eco-retreat center will be your home for the week, merging elements of beautiful design and breathtaking scenery. The center's cozy and simple rooms will be the perfect setting for you to unwind in blissful rejuvenation. Anne will guide you through twice-daily yoga practices incorporating elements of subtle body philosophy and meditation. These practices will give you the opportunity to turn inward, beyond the physical practice and deepen the connection with your inner callings. By turning inward we are able to cultivate an attitude of Santosha, or contentment, allowing us to embrace all of the parts of ourselves and better harmonizing with the world around us. 
 
Free time can be enjoyed relaxing deeply or exploring the surrounding area. Some activities you can enjoy during this retreat include: reading in hammocks, massage treatments, nature walking, horseback riding, and surfing.

Anne Van Valkenburg
Anne started practicing yoga in 1999 and has been teaching at Yoga Works since 2003. She teaches public classes and personal clients in Los Angeles, as well as travels nationally and internationally teaching the Yoga Works 200-Hour and 300-Hour Teacher Training Programs. The heart of her teaching is alignment-based vinyasa taught with thematic sequences that tell a story and that challenge students to slow down. Anne is passionate about teaching the nuts and bolts of the physical practice, as well as weaving in the philosophy of the "Eight Limbs of Yoga" and enjoys creating a space for students where they can define their own meaning of yoga. Anne hopes to inspire students to look beyond the physical and to use the whole practice of yoga as a means to deepen the connection with one's true self. Ultimately yoga... Read More

Do I need a Visa to travel to Portugal?

No, US citizens are not required to get a Visa to visit Portugal. You will be given a Visa upon arrival valid for 90 days.  

IMPORTANT: If your passport expires within six months of your arrival date to Portugal, please be sure to renew your passport before you go to avoid any issues with immigration. There are no exceptions.

How many people are expected on this retreat?

Are gratuities included?

No, gratuities are not included in the price of the program. We recommend $5-$10/day per person as a tip to be given at the end of your stay and shared amongst the staff. Tipping is not obligatory but is greatly appreciated especially when receiving great service. 

Do I need travel insurance?

All payments to International Yoga are non-refundable & non-transferable. The purchase of travel insurance is strongly recommended to ensure you are covered should any unexpected event arise. A personal, political, environmental or weather-related incident or pre-existing medical condition may prevent or interrupt your travels.  These events are rare but do occur and underscore the importance of being covered by travel insurance.  Should you elect to not purchase travel insurance, you will be assuming 100% of any costs incurred for trip cancellation or trip interruption. TravelEx  and World Nomads are two reputable organizations. There is a broad spectrum of policies and options so make sure you are clear on what exactly is covered.

What are the accommodations like?

The holistic center is designed to offer all the comfort and space you need for your practices. The yoga space is made with round wood architecture and heated floor is inspired in by a space in the Brazilian rainforest, surrounded by nature. Between activities one can relax or study in a variety of calm and peaceful spaces that were placed for the purpose of joy and contemplation, all with amazing views to the surroundings. The rooms are cozy with simple decoration, all that is needed to let go and surrender to the space of being taken care of.

Do I need vaccinations?

There are no required vaccinations for travel to Portugal. However, there are some recommended (suggested) vaccinations given by the CDC. To see the complete list of what is recommended, please visit the CDC Website and consult with your primary care physician to make a decision on what is best for you. 

What if I am traveling alone?

We get hundreds of travelers each year who go on retreat alone. If you are traveling without a friend or partner, but prefer to share your room, we will do our best to match you with another traveler of the same gender. If for some reason, we are not able to match you with a roommate, a single supplement will apply. 

 

If you prefer to have your own private room, a single supplement will apply. 

What is the cancellation policy for this trip?

All retreats include a $500 non-refundable / non-transferable deposit, which is required to hold your spot on the trip. If you cancel prior to March 25, 2019 we will refund your payment minus the non-refundable deposit. All payments are non-refundable & non-transferable after March 25, 2019. International Yoga must strictly adhere to its cancellation policy to offset costs incurred prior to the commencement of retreat. Click here to view the Terms and Conditions to which you agree upon registration.
