Try the local products the yoga retreat’s chefs source from local farms where producers take pride in going organic because they love their home. Enjoy vegan and non-vegan delicacies surrounded by Mother Nature… and new friends.
Imagine such a yoga event in Portugal, a country awarded as the World’s Leading Destination. Now, picture the Alentejo, a peaceful paradise combining culture that goes back to pre-history monuments, roman temples, castle walls… Cork oak and olive trees dominate the landscape, either flat or rugged. When land meets the ocean, the wildest beaches in Europe bring the welcoming Atlantic breeze.
Your resort is located at the heart of it all, UNESCO’s World Heritage Évora. Departures will take place from here. Because exploration is also present on a mind at ease.
We are sure your imagination brought you to the perfect place. Yoga in Portugal, free from stress, on your journey to wellness, being a life-time practitioner or new to the lifestyle… Sounds like a plan. Let everything else just happen.
