By incorporating yoga and meditation in to your live, learning how to improve your health through food, this week we want to show how to optimize your daily routines and feel energized!

We follow each day one element to connect with and bring your intentions, planning the yoga and meditation sessions, the culinary workshop and the food we eat involving each of them: EARTH, WATER, FIRE, AIR

4-9th May 2019


The retreat takes place in Monte Velho Retreat Centre, a beautiful venue located in south Algarve, facing the ocean and surrounded of pine trees, beaches, flowers and animals.


Our lives seem to be fast and accelerated. We may feel there is no time for our goals. We may feel life passes without being able to take the time to celebrate. We may even loose the purpose.

We forget the lightness of life, we forget that our goal should be look for JOY in every day.

But when you start consciously taking care of your body, a magic thing happens!

The practice of yoga and meditation brings this quietness and relax to your mind. It lets you time for yourself. It recharges your energy.

Through the food we eat, we connect to Nature, we feed and respect our body and ourselves. By understanding and giving what your body needs, you let vitality fulfill your life.

Accompanied by the natural elements.- water, aire, fire and earth- our goal for this week is to share tools to take home with you to ensure your look for joy everyday!


The day starts with morning yoga with breathing exercise and relaxation techniques session followed by a healthy and delicious breakfast.

Every day there is a nutrition workshop. Using the elements as a guide, we will talk learn about how to improve your diet with little changes that make all the difference, incorporate fermented food, sprouts, how to create a good weekly menu and we will be hands on preparing all ths.

Lunch is served at 13:30 and after you will have free time to enjoy the surroundings. Go for a walk through the sea cliff or following the trails of the Natural Park, try a surf lesson in the Atlantic Ocean, experience a holistic horse riding experience or spoil yourself with a massage.

  1. Olá bom dia! I’m Steph, I take the liberty to write to you just in case one day you might need what I have to offer 🙂 I spent my last 15 yrs on the road but these last 4 yrs I lived most of my time in India (Mysore) to dedicate deeply to yoga practice and studies which are ashtanga yoga(2 TTC), yoga therapy(1TTC), yin yoga, yoga nidra, pranayama, meditation, chanting and the sutras that I practice daily. 
    I have experience as yin yoga teacher as well as giving yoga nidra sessions but mainly as an ashtanga assistant teacher to my teacher at his shala in Mysore. His classes can be very busy in high season up to 80 students in one morning, from complete begginners to high level practicioners. 
    I’m double nationality one is Portuguese. I fluently speak French, Spanish, English and of course Portuguese. I just arrived in Portugal to stay with my family in the Algarve near Faro.
    I’ve have a lot of knowledge to pass on and a big desire to do so here so I’m sending a mail to the retreats in case anyone could be interested at one point.
    Thank you for reading me, all the best namasthe
