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.

Vale De Moses Yoga Retreat Reviews
Lovely people What an amazing experience! The minute I arrived to Vale de Moses I felt completely relaxed. The setting is beautiful. The incredible food fuels you for the yoga but the best thing about it for me was the lovely people. The perfect place to relax and reconnect!
World class treatments I returned to Moses simply knowing that I would have a great time. Hard to believe that my experience topped the one from two years before. The quality of the yoga practice, the incredible food, the world class standard of treatments and the sheer beauty of the surroundings are unbeatable. Such a lovely family run business, they really do it right. So many laugh out loud moments together with the great group I was with, the best retreat holiday I've taken in a long time. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Wholesome and revitalising Thank you for a wonderfully wholesome, nourishing and revitalising week. I left with a lightness, a tranquility, a feeling of contentment and the desire to grow my own veggies!
An incredible environment Thank you so much for such a wonderful retreat. You and your whole team have created a very special place, and it was such a treat to be looked after for a week. You manage to create an incredible environment - relaxed, open, safe and full of so much joy. I cannot remember the last time I have laughed that much in a single week! The combination of yoga (Fleur was amazing), treatments, amazing food, and people made it such a memorable week. Thank you so much.
Breathtaking environment The yoga lessons were awesome and the yoga shala is beautiful! The food was the best food I have ever eaten. The environment is breathtaking. It is very peaceful too. Everyone here is so nice, you feel like you're at home! :) You don't want to leave after one week.
