Yoga Travel to Portugal

Europe - 7 days

Highlights

Home made Vegetarian food 2 Excursions

Overview

Our yoga trip to rural central Portugal leads us to the Brejo Fundeiro Retreat. Embedded in a valley and surrounded by forests, the lovingly renovated 100 +year old manor house has created an oasis of calm - to practice yoga, enjoy nature and relax. A yoga room was created in an old barn - fully equipped, which allows us to practice Yath as well as Iyengar or classical Hatha yoga. Good weather gives you the opportunity to use the outdoor dining area- there is a 2nd sitting room in the conservatory, library and balcony to relax in.

Location

Our location

Set in a rural valley surrounded by eucalyptus forest plantation, just think of being located on a farm. The venue consists of the main Manor house (over 100 years old), shaded courtyard garden for al-fresco eating, herb & flower garden, vegetable garden, orchard, yoga shala, swimming pool, ruins in a secluded valley. Perfect setting for your exclusive group retreat in rural central Portugal where mainstream tourism doesn't exist yet.

Here at Brejo in the middle of the peaceful mountainous region of central Portugal, where we still collect spring water to drink from free public springs, bath in mineral water direct from the earth, swim in rivers and lakes and walk through manned forests; where you see no other person.

The patio area provides a lovely outside space with comfortable armchairs and views over the herb garden, ruins and valley and provides a great vantage point to either watch the sun go down or stare at bright stars.

Twin en-suite Bedroom 1
€950 Per person per stay
This en-suite bedroom used to be the original kitchen of the Manor house. One bed is situated under the chimney, which is now blocked off. The main window in the bedroom looks out onto the court yard, while the other looks out on the back patio (It used to be an external door to the patio) Wood floor and ceiling. This room is a bit more separate from the rest of the bedrooms, so we typically put couples in here.
Twin en-suite Bedroom 2
€950 Per person per stay
Twin en-suite bedroom facing the front of the Manor house. The shared (with Bedroom 3) Juliet-balcony overlooks our organic vegetable garden.
Twin en-suite Bedroom 3
€950 Per person per stay
This en-suite bedroom, used to be the master bedroom of the Manor house. The Juliet balcony (shared with bedroom 2) over looks our organic vegetable garden. The 2nd last King of Portugal slept over in this master bedroom during a hunt in our region. However, we had to reduce the size of the master bedroom by building 2 en-suite bathrooms on the one side.

Menu

The ‘made from scratch’ vegetarian food we prepare is tasty and nutritious and based on fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables. The vegetables, fruits and herbs are either grown in our own organic garden or supplied by local greengrocers.

We 'grow' varieties of Yogurts, to serve with fresh fruit salad, and milk Kefir for probiotics. Then we also make our own: Water-Kefir and Pear-ale, (both flavoured with healing ginger) and Lemon squash, and elderflower syrup which all make a refreshing cold drink. We also grow Kombucha to provide yet another healthy drink for our guests, who wish to fill their gut with all the good bacteria required for building a healthy immune system. Mung bean sprouts, soaked raw oaks, raw gazpacho soup and smoothies helps to eat healthy raw food without thinking about it.

In addition, we make and serve plenty of fermented raw foods to boost your microbiome. The home-made bread is made from sour-dough we grow and 'Herman' ; our culture is now 6 years old and have offspring all over the world already. We gladly gift this culture to any guest who is interested in baking their own sour-dough bread.

Instructors

Susan

I was born in October 1978, I am a yoga teacher with body and soul and mother of three wonderful children.

Exercise, fitness and sport have been part of my life for years. As a fitness and personal trainer, I have been accompanying people for over 20 years - I learned from yoga that there is something else. Finding your own rhythm, listening to your gut feeling and being able to switch off your head cinema at some point are the first goals of a yoga class. As I was able to experience this, I would like to pass it on in my courses. My yoga studio is located in Arnstadt. Of course, I also teach wherever you can practice yoga - indoors, outdoors, in the park, on the city wall, in the company, at school, in kindergarten ...
