Vinyasa Hatha Flow Yoga retreat with Anna Inferrera
May 23 - May 30
We return to our beloved Portugal, between the Douro Valley, UNESCO world heritage, and the National Park of Peneda-Gerês.
The enchanting location which will welcome us was born specially to host Yoga retreats. The attention to detail from the property owners is tangible, you can breath it in the air, you can see it in the smallest details around every corner of the property, you can taste it at every meal. Our stay will be surrounded by a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, away from the city chaos.
The format chosen for this edition combines Yoga and Meditation to guided hikes with experts local guides. Sound and live music will also be a part of our experience. If you wish to unplug from your daily routine and gift yourself with a regenerating break, surrounded by nature, if you love the magical union between Yoga & music… we will see you there!
We plan to have two daily practices except on the days we will be hiking, in that case we will practice once.
My style of teaching takes inspiration from Shiva Rea’s Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga. The typology of classes may vary according to the group’s needs. The sequences might gear towards a more flowy Vinyasa style as well as be shaped as a Restorative Yoga class. At times we may focus on alignment and kramas of specific asana, other times we may be inspired by philosophical and devotional themes. The morning practice is usually more dynamic and solar, while we choose a more lunar and relaxing rhythm for the night practices. During this specific retreat we will be delighted by the wonderful presence and magnificent voice of Arya, yogini devoted to Bhakti, sacred sounds and spiritual music.
Food will be an important part of our experience: D’Alijo Retreat Center reserves particular care and attention to the preparation of meals. In the kitchen they use only local and seasonal products. The north of Portugal is the most ancient region for the production of some of the country’s best wines. This area is also known in the world for the nectar which grows here, Porto wine. The location offers a great selection of wines for those who appreciate it. If you have food intolerance or allergies you may let us know in time and our Chef Mikel will study a specific menu adequate to cater your needs. Every day you will be served with a rich brunch and a dinner
