Iyengar Yoga Retreat Portugal

Come and join this Iyengar yoga retreat where you will stay in a beautiful Portuguese Quinta on the edge of the picturesque village of Columbeira close to the Silver Coast. On this retreat, you will practice asanas which will help your body develop flexibility, strength and stamina. And, by cultivating the body, the mind can become clear and quiet. The mission of this retreat is to create a place where people can relax, recharge and slow down. To give people an opportunity to step away from their fast-paced lives and to take care of their bodies and minds. To offer a beautiful location in a sustainable environment that is friendly for both nature and animals. All of Buddha Retreats' programs start with a healthy and energising breakfast in the morning and end with everyone enjoying dinner together in the evening. The meals are prepared with ingredients out of own veggie garden and buy fresh produce from the local markets.

Buddha Retreats is a yoga and surf retreat in Portugal 70km north of Lisbon in the picturesque village of Columbeira. Buddha Retreats offers a place where guests can relax and recharge and slow down from the often fast-paced daily life and take care of body and mind.

The property consists of a main house, several additional buildings, terraces, an indoor and outdoor yoga studio, a swimming pool, a small river, fruit trees, a meditation garden and rural land. The spacious gardens surrounding Buddha Retreats make sure that there is more than enough space for everyone to enjoy their stay.

To keep a family-feel we never have more than 20 guests staying in our beautiful Quinta in comfortable single and double bedrooms.

The climate is very much influenced by the Atlantic and the weather can change quickly here, in particular outside of summer. If you come in spring or autumn always bring some warmer clothes for colder days and a rain jacket. There is a reason why Portugal is so lush and green. If you want to use the pool don't forget to bring your swimwear. We provide you with towels.

Please be aware that we have several cats and dogs living at the retreat centre. They are all very friendly but if you should be allergic to cats or dogs Buddha Retreats might not be the most suitable place for you.

Programma

Iyengar yoga

Iyengar yoga is a dynamic and physically intensive form of yoga in which correct alignment of the asanas (postures) is important. This practice allows the energy to flow freely through the body. The practice of yoga will give strength and flexibility to the body and more peace in our mind.

The roots of Iyengar yoga originated in India and were founded by BKS Iyengar (1918) who was a student of Sri T. Krishnamacharya. All our Iyengar yoga teachers are fully qualified and have done several years of teacher training.

Iyengar yoga is suitable for all levels. In addition to yoga workshops, we also give weekly classes. Asana practice is a big part of each yoga class. By practicing asanas, the body develops flexibility, strength and stamina; and by cultivating the body, the mind can become clear and quiet.

The yoga studio is fully equipped with mats and necessary props so there is no need to bring anything.

Retreat locatie

The property is located on a spacious plot at the edge of the small village of Columbeira and is surrounded by lush green hills. There are several hiking trails in close vicinity. This area of the coast is easy to reach from Lisbon by public transport and car (about 40 minutes). Several budget airlines fly from different parts from Europe to Lisbon, which makes this long weekend yoga retreats a perfect getaway.

Surfing spot

It is possible to have the option to go surfing for extra charge as there are plenty of surf spots to be found within a short drive from Buddha Retreats, from gentle beach breaks at Baleal to the fast and hollow waves at Supertubos. Most spots are just north or south of the fishing town Peniche, situated on a small peninsula with waves all year round, with bigger swell sizes in autumn and winter and smaller swells throughout the rest of the year. Due to the shape of the peninsula, there are plenty of options for just about any swell or wind direction. You can reach more than ten surfing spots for all levels - from beginners to advanced surfers - within a short drive from Buddha Retreats. For more information on surf classes please send a message via the Send Inquiry button to Buddha Retreats directly.

Depending on your yoga schedule, you will enjoy a delicious lunch either at the Buddha Retreats house or they will give you a packed lunch that you can enjoy at the beach.
