Program

This retreat can start at any day of the week, just let House of Zen know your preferred arrival date so that your schedule can be adjusted accordingly as there are no yoga classes on Sundays.

Day 1 - Arrival

House of Zen will be welcoming you from 14:00 onwards, allowing you free time to rest, and explore the peaceful settings and the gorgeous Estoril area.

Day 2 to 6

From Monday to Friday, at 08:15, you will rise and shine by awakening your body and awareness of your breathing through morning asanas. On Saturday, the morning class is at 09:30. Enjoy your daily morning yoga class. At 09:30, you will savor a well deserved, healthy breakfast. Later, starting at 10:30, you will have some free time to relax and enjoy yourself.

You can either go out and discover the beautiful beaches and the sea at walking distance. There is always the choice of staying at the house in the secluded garden or in the rooftop overlooking the sea. Read a book, meditate, or freely unwind your mind. In the afternoons, you can enjoy your second yoga class of the day.

Time to quiet your body and to clear your mind, allowing your awareness to sharpen and space to open for insight and understanding to develop. This is a good time to become aware of changes in your body, mind, and heart. On free afternoons, this opportunity is ideal to discover Cascais and its surroundings, meet people, find new places, eat local food, or visit a fair, a museum, or a beautiful park.
