Portugal Training Information
About the retreat centre, how to get there, what to bring and more
Monte Velho is located in the middle of nowhere, where south-western Europe sinks into the Atlantic. It is a region enriched by the strength of its’ nature, where the high cliffs overlook the ocean, filling the air with a fresh breeze, spreading myths and tales of fishermen, sailors and pirates, sunken ships and great fisheries.
All food, yoga props and use of the sauna/wellness area are included. We will practice in the Garden Shala, sleep in cool quiet rooms and soak up the incredible energy of this natural, wild area. My favourite beach is nearby (Praia do Amado), the food is tasty and nourishing, and you can even book a massage. All beds can be either single or double and are very comfortable. I recommend hiring a car to explore this beautiful area (a few of you can share one, and I will liaise with you as to who is arriving when to coordinate). If you can, stay a night or 2 more to make the most of your time here.
September is very warm but not unbearable, perfect for practicing yoga, and the ocean will be fresh (it is the Atlantic after all!). The sun is strong so wear sunscreen and bring a hat
You can either fly to Faro, or Lisbon is also not far away by car and a lovely drive too. I can recommend some Lisbon and Algarve highlights for you as well. As my family on my mum's side are all Portuguese, I have a deep affinity with this land and I can't wait to share it with you. I'll help you plan your arrival and departure and any extras you would like on your trip here. Vegans/Food intolerances are of course catered to, just let me know on booking

Around here you can go to the beach, do a surf lesson, hikes and excursion, dolphin watching, bike tour, horseback riding etc.
The closest village is Carrapateria, small traditional Portuguese village, around 3-4 kms; it has nice beaches - my favourite Praia do Amado and also Praia Bordeira, with sea cliffs.
