Join Roots Of The Being for this wonderful retreat, a combination of different techniques from yoga, meditation, breath, sound healing, art therapy, deep connection with nature, dance, ocean, and vegetarian healthy food. The ocean, the trees, the smell of wildflowers and desert beaches, and the sunrise and sunset view on the Atlantic west coast of Algarve are very inspiring to observe your inner self and find peace within.
From the top of the Monte, Monte Velho becomes the consciousness of the vast natural space around them, the strength of the elements in the region, and the overwhelming beauty of one of the most, or perhaps last, secret places in the world. One vision that puts the ocean, the trees, hills, the animals, and humans in the very center of the continuous beautiful and mighty universal cycles.
Once a rural tourism center, Monte Velho has grown into its true essence and purpose as an eco-retreat center. The holistic center is designed to offer all the comfort and space you need for your practices. The main temple Casa das Pinhas made with round wood architecture and heated floor is inspired in a friend’s center at the Brazilian rainforest. This temple is where the main activities evolve, comfortably inside, and surrounded by nature.
Between activities, one can relax or study in a variety of calm and peaceful spaces that were placed for the purpose of joy and contemplation, all with amazing views of the surroundings. Rooms are cozy with simple decoration, all that is needed for letting go and surrendering to the space of being taken care of, as you walk out the door, maybe the sunlight or the magical sky stars salute.
The main house is composed by a common, 75-square-meters, well decorated, and harmonic living room, an interior dining room with a capacity between 25 and 35 seats, an exterior breakfast veranda with capacity for 32 seats, and a spa with a sauna, steam bath, and a therapy room.
This room is equipped with a double bedroom and a private bathroom.

The day at Monte Velho will start at 07:30 with a morning meditation, followed by pranayama and a lovely heart yoga practice to wake up your body, activate your cells, and refill the energy levels.
Once your body is awakened by stretches and love, you will be having a delicious, healthy, and organic breakfast.

The lunch will be served at 13:00. An exquisite vegetarian buffet with organic vegetables from the garden and local fresh food will let your senses be delighted. After lunch, you will have free time for yourself. You can sleep a "siesta", read a book on a hammock, walk in nature, go to the beach, or make some extra activities such as holistic horse riding, surf class, or receive a massage in the spa.
At 18:30, the sunset Yoga class will take place in nature, in the garden yoga shala.
