Join Rachel Lovegrove, internationally renowned Iyengar yoga teacher, for a retreat of excellent instruction, fabulously healthy and delicious food, as well as peaceful and beautiful surroundings in the heart of Portugal, Algarve. Monte na Luz is a well established yoga retreat center, set in the hills overlooking the pretty town of Loule, with views over the valley to the sea. It is only 25 minutes from Faro airport and 7 kilometers from the wonderful Algarvian beaches.
Monte na Luz provides single and double rooms arranged over the estate with a fully equipped yoga studio. There is a large, landscaped, private swimming pool and the main building where the dining room and dining terrace is, has views overlooking the hills towards Loule and the Algarve coast. In the evening you can enjoy a tea or a glass of wine whilst watching the sun set over the hills. Frank, the center manager, provides a weekly mini-bus service to the beach and you can walk into town along quiet country lanes in only 20 minutes. There are plenty of places for reading, relaxing, swimming, chatting, and meditating etc. Onsite we have visiting massage therapists providing a range of excellent treatments including relaxing massage, ayurvedic therapies, reiki, hot stones and shiatsu.
Arrivals day is on Saturday from 2 pm. Welcome meal and introductions will be held at 8 pm. On Sunday to Friday, although the program is subject to change, you are guaranteed at least 20 hours yoga per week, divided into one or two daily sessions with one afternoon and one morning off for self-practice or extra relaxation time. %Brunch is served after each morning yoga session and dinner every evening. Food is vegetarian and beautifully prepared. Special diets can be catered for with advanced warning. On departure day, guests are requested to vacate their rooms by 9 am but you can leave your luggage securely and relax by the pool if your flight is later in the day.
Although there is a request for a year's regular practice of yoga for this course, it is not intended for advanced yogis, but for those who already have a keen interest in the subject and want to take the next step in their progression on this amazing, life affirming path. Rachel has a down-to-earth attitude to teaching, a healthy and infectious sense of humor and is adept at making her guests feel at ease from their first moments on the mat. Whatever your age, ability or experience level, Rachel will take care to provide you with the best teaching that her 20 years of experience has to offer.
On Wednesday or Friday, weather permitting, Orange Tree Yoga invites participants to join them on a walking tour either by the sea or into the beautiful Algarvian hills. Bring suitable footwear, sunscreen and water.
