    Meike, Berlin Germany (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat 2021)

    The retreat at Montevelho was just beautiful. I felt that the mix of yoga sessions with the Ayurveda knowledge matched perfectly. Celine and Josephine were leading the group in a very mindful way and I feel very grateful to have met them, as well as this super nice group of people. The retreat center is a dream and the food was a real treat, it was super delicious. I highly recommend their retreats!

    Joël, Paris (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov. 2021)

    Great peaceful and quiet place. Amazing teachers and so good healthy food!

    Catherine, Switzerland (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov 2021)

    YOGA WAYS Yoga & Ayurveda retreat at Monte Velho center has been a good starting point to improve my health habits. The learning of my Prakriti and Vikriti are giving me new tools to work. The center allowed to be out of the buzzing lives we live today, to concentrate on self. Celine, Josephine and Ayalla did a wonderful team work to help me discover who I am.

    Mälin, Sweden (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov. 2021)

    Lovely days in perfect harmony with the sun, ocean, nature and a peaceful mind. I actually got to taste a little bit of heaven.

    Catherine, Marseille, France (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov. 2021)

    Everything is chosen and organised with great care. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Joséphine and Céline. For my first yoga retreat experience I couldn’t have imagined so many benefits. I’m brand new, recharged, excited to do it again

    Nadine, Germany (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov. 2021)

    The retreat helped me to find trust in my body again and the joy of enjoying the moment.

    Juliana, Brasil (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov.2021)

    It was my second time at Monte Velho, and this place is just perfect for yoga retreats! A lot of nature and peace, an amazing spot to see both the sun rise and sunset. It was very interesting for me to know more about Ayurveda philosophy and how I can use it to balance my life and be more connected to the signs of my body. The retreat was very well thought, and carefully organised. All the classes were connected with the workshops and the food, according to the doshas we were studying on that day. I have a very pleasant experience and a lot of time to connect to myself!

    Inês, Portugal (Yoga & Ayurveda retreat Nov 2021)

    The Yoga and Ayurveda Retreat was my first retreat and I couldn’t be happier, it was an amazing experience. Everything was very well organised and I had time to practice yoga, learn, nurture myself, meditate, eat nutritious food and to have interesting conversations with amazing people that will definitely stay in my heart. I came back energised and so happy!

    Bérengère (2021)

    It was my 1st yoga retreat in Portugal with YOGA-WAYS. A unique & profound experience that I had dreamed of for quite some time. Céline and Joséphine have prepared these 5 days wonderfully well in this unique setting that enchants me. I let myself be completely carried and taken to a universe that I did not know, felt rejuvenated, rested, recharged. I liked the yoga and meditation sessions, the vegan cuisine, the hot bath, the meditation at 5:30 am, the massage, my readings, the Essencia hosts, the atmosphere…. I will come back for sure!

    Catherine (Participante en 2017, 2018, 2019)

    “j’ai tiré beaucoup de choses positives de ma retraite à vos côtés: je suis rentrée fraîche dans ma tête, vigoureuse et joyeuse.”

    Hilary (2017)

    “Celine and Jehanne are wonderful yoga teachers – skilled in understanding one’s individual needs and expectations and customising an appropriate practice that works best to support mind and body.  This is the best yoga guidance i have ever had.” –

    Lorraine (Participante en 2018)

    “Un immense merci pour votre organisation parfaite.
    Une retraite yoga axée sur la spiritualité et la meditation, une ambience très zen dans un lieu magique, a refaire sans hésitation!” –

    Stephanie (Bali 2018)

    “Votre cours de yoga/méditation est une belle invitation au voyage intérieur…. On se laisse porter en douceur vers l’harmonisation, on apprend a écouter son corps, a mieux gérer son stress!! Meilleure respiration…une sensation de légèreté!
    Je vous remercie pour votre enseignement, votre rayonnement contagieux!
    Un très bon équilibre parmi les activités et les temps de pause… Ubud un endroit ideal pour une retraite,  le logement un petit paradis! En joignant les deux mains a hauteur de mon coeur, je vous remercie toutes les deux. Namaste !” –  

    Louisa (Bali 2017)

    I live my life at 100km an hour doing everything in a hurry. This Yoga retreat in the heart of the rice fields of Bali allowed me to settle down, to refocus myself. Adjusting my movements to my breath did not It wasn’t easy at first, I even struggled a bit: then very quickly I felt my mind calm down, my body relax and recharge. From there came a beautiful energy but calmer, and more channeled than usual. On my mat, doing the exercises, I became aware of my way of functioning and it opened me to the universe of possibilities. Thank you girls for your generosity, your spirituality, and all that which you have enabled me to understand.

    Why joining a yoga ayurveda retreat Portugal? Is this for me?

    Whether you are already a regular practitioner or a beginner feeling the benefits of Yoga and eager to step up his/her practice, a retreat will allow you to get away from your daily routine, your responsibilities and your commitments. A window, just for you, to give your body and mind time to reset and get creative again. We all need it from time to time. Our retreats programs are unique and focused on personal development while having a good time of course!

    We use all the tools and knowledge of Yoga – Postures, breathing techniques, breath work, mudras and mantras, as well as workshops covering various topics based on the texts and founding concepts of yogic philosophy (mainly based on the Yoga Sutras and the sacred Vedic texts) – thus we offer you a platform to reflect and work on yourself.
