7 Days Nature Immersion and Yoga Retreat in Figuiero dos Vinhos, Portugal

Quinta das Flores, Rua das Flores, Figuiero dos Vinhos, Portugal

Yoga Nature Immersion in Central Portugal

You are invited to explore your relationship with the natural world and develop a deeper connection with it. Practice daily yoga and meditation in a safe, non-competitive environment supported by great food and beautiful surroundings. Over the week you will slow down and connect with nature through the Five Pathways to Nature Connectedness; contact, beauty, emotion, meaning, and compassion. This is about developing a reciprocal relationship with nature and your place within it. In this way, you can be healed and so too can the planet.

Food

A key part of integrated health and any holistic living program or lifestyle is a good nutritious food. Integrated health includes all aspects of health, well being, and self-care. A well-balanced diet rich with vegetables and fruit, very low on processed carbohydrates, and refined sugar is always recommended.

A more pesticide-free plant-based diet is healthier for body, mind, and spirit. On a Nourish in Nature Retreat, Yoga Holidays Portugal aims to educate and cultivate healthy relationships to food and to develop an awareness of eating mindfully.

Good nutrition is vital to support health and hormone balance. You need to focus on a diet rich in good fats, protective anti-oxidants, high-quality protein, and vitamins and minerals.

Your often hectic stressful lifestyles mean you must learn to support the functioning of your nervous system with foods rich in B vitamins and magnesium. A healthy gut flora balance is being recognized as a crucial part of your health, immunity, and hormone balance and naturally fermented foods are a rich source of these beneficial bacteria.

The following meals are included:

  • Brunch
  • Dinner
  • Snacks
  • Drinks

The following drinks are included:

  • Water
  • Coffee
  • Tea

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

You can book your flight to arrive at Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS) or Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport (OPO). Airport transfers are not included but feel free to send an inquiry to Yoga Holidays Portugal for more information on how to get to the venue.

Arrival by bus

Fly into either Lisbon or Porto and connect with a national bus to the nearest station, Figueiro dos Vinhos. Both Lisbon and Porto are beautiful cities and guests often extend their holiday by a day or two to spend some time in the city.

Please note that it does take a day to get to the venue, including flight time, airport time, and catching the bus here. The bus usually takes three hours. Please allow at least an hour to either take a bus or taxi from the airport to the national bus terminal.

Check in is any time after 5 PM on the Sunday of each retreat week. If you plan to fly into Portugal on the same day as the start of the retreat, you will need a morning flight to connect with the afternoon buses. Tickets can be purchased online or easily at the bus station.

The bus leaves Lisbon - Sete Rios Station at 4 PM and arrives in Figueiro Dos Vinhos (just called Figueiro Vinhos on web site) for around 12 EUR. It is recommended to buy your bus ticket a couple of weeks before travel.

The bus leaves Porto - Rede Expressos Terminal, near Sao Bento, at 5 PM and also arrives at Figuiero Vinhas at 7.15 PM. Yoga Holidays Portugal will meet and collect guests from the bus station and bring them to Quinta da Flores. Transfers to and from the bus station are included in the retreat package.
