About Vale De Moses Yoga Retreat

You are invited to retreat to Vale de Moses, a small old valley farm nestled in the remote and picturesque foothills of the Serra de Estrela mountain range, Central Portugal.
Spend a week here on the edge of wilderness, in the beautifully restored home of the Winter family, beneath the village of Amieira, Oleiros. Practice yoga daily, walk in forests, swim and mud bathe in rivers, breath mountain air, eat deliciously, sleep deeply. Retreat.
This warm invitation is open for everyone, travelling alone or with friends, new to yoga or practicing for decades. But itâ€™s particularly for those in need of a break. Thatâ€™s why a health consultation, massage and acupuncture treatment is included in the price. Retreat from 740â‚¬ to 890â‚¬ per person per week. 10% discount for returning guests, groups or a 2 week stay.
Yoga is a love affair.
When we first go to a yoga studio or buy a book or watch a video, we may do so because on some level we recognise we are under strain. Mental, physical or emotional. We practice a little and feel loosened, at greater ease. Some of the stress we carried before our practice seems to abate enough so that we may move into our life with assurance. Yoga is healing and offers us a return to a state of equilibrium. So we devote a little more time to ourselves, just for ourselves.
The teachers at Vale de Moses trustfully impart their experience of yoga, as personal practitioners and as students. They employ the teachings of many styles, sharing their treasured love of this ancient practice in an earthy, simple, kindly and compassionate manner. Morning classes are often flowing and energetic, inspired by Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow and Dynamic Hatha Yoga, setting us up nicely for a day of therapies, sun bathing and exploring. Sultry afternoon classes of Yin Yoga, focused asana exploration, playful unintimidating partner or Acro Yoga and some quiet contemplation. Together we artfully cultivate a love of personally empowered practice and sow seeds of self understanding so we can move more gracefully into a state of integration, wholeness and ultimately, relaxation.
