Yoga Retreat Portugal – Ignite Your Inner Spark

Are you looking for a time-out that’s energising and inspiring? Do you wish to fuel that creative, feminine spark within you? Do you seek to meet like-minded people and spend one blissful week in a gentle, supportive environment with your wellbeing in focus?

If you said yes to any of these questions, then we invite you to our Bhakti-Shakti Bliss 7-day Portugal retreat. Together we’ll use the tools of yoga, meditation and mindful movement to release any stagnant, blocked energy and create space for healing and new potential. With a focus on music, chanting and celebration, we’ll utilise the vibrational powers of mantra and sound to foster our creativity and feed our relationship to the sacred feminine within.

With 3-delicious vegetarian meals per day, created from locally sourced food and situated in an absolutely beautiful location immersed in nature, this retreat will help you to focus on yourself and to make space for your health, wellbeing, creativity, and connection to you. Between our daily program of yoga, meditation, specialised workshops and celebrations, there will be time for you to enjoy forest walks in the neighbouring national park, swim in the ocean, walk along the beach, enjoy a massage treatment or simply sit in stillness and enjoy magical moments of non-doing 🙂

Reconnect to You

This Yoga Retreat Portugal will be a blissful week of 7 days / 6 nights in a beautiful nature retreat in south-west Portugal with stunning ocean views surrounded by a national park and including a picturesque, floor heated Yoga Shala. Three different types of rooms are available for you to choose from: single room, double room, triple room. The rooms are cosy and uplifting. They’ve been designed with love, attention and care to make you feel nurtured and “at home” during your stay. The rooms open into nature so that you’re immersed in the healing beauty of the local environment whilst there.

This retreat includes a full board. You will get 3 delicious Ayurvedic based, vegetarian (optional vegan) meals sourced from local produce per day. The meals are extremely tasty and are prepared by Monte Vehlo’s own specialist chef who pays close attention to health, nutrition and wellbeing.

Our retreat program is designed to give you time to journey into yourself through the tools of yoga, meditation, mindful movement, chanting, sound/music and creative inspiration. Within our schedule you’ll also have enough free time to enjoy the beauty of the natural world around you by going on forest walks, swimming in the ocean, visiting the local villages, having time out at the beach or simply reading in one of the incredibly cosy Monte Vehlo living rooms or from the comfort of your own swinging hammock.

An Inspiring Location

The Monte Velho Nature Resort is located on the south-west coast of Portugal, where Europe meets the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a region enriched by the strength of nature, where high, impressive cliffs overlook the vast ocean. Neighbouring the Costa Vicentina National Park, Monte Velho is surrounded by beautiful pine and eucalyptus forests – whose scent mingles with the ocean breeze. 

Filled with gorgeous natural surroundings and panoramic ocean views, the retreat centre has plenty of spaces for you to sit in quiet contemplation. It also neighbours  the Costa Vicentina National Park, providing you with ample walking trails through endless pine and eucalyptus forests. It’s a special spot to immerse yourself in the healing wonder of nature.

Monte Velho is designed as a Retreat Centre: from its garden temple, to its many outdoor gazebos, the space has been mindfully created with nurture, nature, contemplation and retreat in mind. Between activities, one can relax in a variety of calm and peaceful spaces that were placed for the purpose of joy and contemplation, all with amazing views to the natural surroundings.
