The Art of Vinyasa - 7 Days Immersed in Nature, really closed to the Ocean, in Ericeira, Portugal

ALMASHALA, Rua da bica 6, Pobral, São João das Lampas, Portugal

Vinyasa Yoga Retreat in Portugal

Take time for yourself and honor your temple with a breakaway in the beautiful town of Ericeira.

Join us for one week and be immersed in nature.

During this time together we are going to explore the Vinyasa discipline starting from the most traditional approach, the eastern one, till the most contemporary and creative one.

This experience is designed for those who wish to go deeper into the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, to understand its techniques, its secrets, its philosophy.

From the sunrise till the sunset will incorporate the proper method in its full spectrum.

It is fundamental for us to offer an experience that is far away from the distractions and in contact with nature.

It is for this reason that we created Almashala, a paradise for the Yogis, a place of bliss, peace, and discipline. A vibrating space to cultivate mental and physical balance,

a domestic version of holiness, a sacred refuge.

Retreat location

We are in Ericeira, Portugal, the European modern spiritual mecca. Ericeira is a place which is witnessing a transversal migration of people with a common intention of contemporary society based on sustainable living in harmony with the earth, with the ocean and with the others, but also the birth of projects such as Co-working spaces, Digital Nomads Networks, Ecovillages, Permaculture, and Shared Gardens.

Based on these values and visions we chose this place, we felt a deep and natural sense of belonging for this small magical village and this is why we dreamed of Almashala.

“If you love nature, this is the place for you.”

Almashala is located in a strategic location. Pure nature is a few steps away from its door.

The Sintra reserve is one of the most suggestive natural attraction of all Portugal, and it offers infinite walking and trekking routes. From our place, you can arrive at the beach by walk, passing through an enchanting path in the forest, or following the river and getting lost in the valley.

Ericeira was declared World Surfing Reserve in 2011 and is special for a world-class 8 kilometers long surf coastline.

"A balanced and healthy diet is important as the practice for us"

We also work in farming, gardening. Portugal has rich and fertile soil, we don't need to add anything.

We have been inspired by permaculture and biodynamics and we are totally committed to organic production. 

Ideally, a yogic diet would be rich in sattvic foods.

Sattvic foods are generally fresh vegetables, grains, and legumes, mild spices, and mildly sweet foods.

According to Ayurveda, this is the best diet for a Yogi to adopt.

It helps keep the mind clear and Sattvic and makes you feel good physically and emotionally. as opposed to rajasic or tamasic. 

The food we provide follows these lines, most of the raw material come from our garden and all the receipts are inspired by a low sugar diet approach.
