THE YOGA sessions will be based on the seven Chakras their function, the body parts, their emotions and trying to access them through meditation. Classes will be a fusion of Kundalini, Hatha and Yin Yoga with strong flow. The Chi Gong will help to clear, balance and invigorate these Chakras. Yoga practice will be offered daily except on Wednesday afternoon when we explore the town of Tomar, and a meal out for dinner.
An optional 1 hour session; Ayurvedic classes will be held every morning after breakfast explaining how food according to your specific constitution can promote energy, endurance, focus, weight loss.

THE VENUE Brejo Fundeiro is a lovingly restored stone-walled 100yr old Manor house surrounded by hilled forests and 5 min drive to the lake. The interior retains all of its original features, wood floors and high ceilings. Accommodation and linen is high quality, all rooms have modern en-suite facilities. Homely atmosphere with down to earth hosts.
Things TO DO various places for lounging and relaxation or dip into the saltwater pool. The surrounding countryside provides plenty of places for walks and cycle trips. Perhaps a boat cruise on the local lake is more your idea of exploring the surrounding nature. For local daytrips please see our website: http://portugalretreat.com/day-trips
We love FOOD and believe eating should not only be healthy, but made with natural ingredients prepared with care and consideration. For your retreat, we provide mediteranian influenced cuisine by providing you with mostly organic, home grown or locally sourced, naturally high-in-energy and balanced 3 meals a day (apart from Wednesday dinner*).
How to GET HERE We are located near the small town of Cernache do Bonjardim. If you prefer to stay at the retreat all the time, the minibus option might be a better choice. However if you wish to explore this beautiful country while here, private rented cars are definitely advisable. Details on website
* Wednesday DAY OUT after lunch: While your hosts give the bathrooms a quick clean and change of towels, we all go to Tomar, which is a small nearby town perfect for a day out. Visit the UNESCO 12th-century castle, wander through the old town with boutique gift shops, sit and relax in one of the many street cafes and dine in a selection of restaurants.
