Yoga Holiday Portugal, eco yoga retreat portugal, sustainable yoga holidays portugal, eco yoga holidays portugal"Fiona was a sunny, patient, calm and inspiring teacher who was in tune with each one of us and managed to ensure that each person in our class (which consisted of various different levels of yoga experience) enjoyed and took a lot away from our week of practice. I left feeling refreshed, relaxed and revitalised. I would recommend this week to anyone." Holly UK

"Thank you all so much for such a wonderful week. The setting has been very calming and beautiful. The food has been AMAZING! The yoga classes have been a good mental and physical challenge. Learning about opening the chakras has been very awakening. The dancing has been a blast. This has been a most memorable, healing, challenging, relaxing and amazing week. I am so grateful for everyone and all the experienced we shared. All the love in my heart”

Yoga Holidays in Portugal - Sustainable Yoga Retreats
Eco Living Yoga Retreats 2016

Our yoga and eco-living retreats are an opportunity for people to get involved and learn about sustainable living as well as being on retreat. Just by being here for a week or more, our guests have the opportunity to take a peek into sustainable living. We find that most guests are interested in our retreats, in part because they have an interest in ethical and sustainable lifestyles. We have also found through our system of karma yogis and volunteers that guests really enjoy helping and being involved. These retreats will be led by Fiona Macleod.

In 2016 we are offering seven Yoga and Eco-Living Retreats. These weeks are offered at a lower price of 450 EUR, for guests willing to help for approx 2 hours per day. We can also offer this retreat at the full price of 550 EUR for those that just want to relax and immerse themselves in their yoga practice.

Tasks during the week will be shared and guests will rotate between the kitchen, preparing delicious vegan, vegetarian and raw vegan food, the garden, dishwashing and general maintenence work which includes the changing of the toilet bins, cleaning and preparing the hot tub at the end of the week, sorting firewood for the boilers and hot tub.

2016 Yoga and Eco-Living Retreats

June 12 - June 18,
September 18 - September 24, September 25 - October 1

On retreat with us, you will not only immerse yourself in your practice with two classes each day,you will also experience a unique and holistic way of living, one that is more in tune with the environment we live in. Each retreat week will include ten yoga classes, which will include asana, pranayama, yoga nidra and guided meditation, three delicious meals each day, gorgeous yurt accommodation, transfer from Pedrogao Grande bus station upon arrival, and our wonderful hot tub and bonfire to close the week.

We live as sustainably as we can. We generate our own electricity using both solar and hydro systems, we use a composting toilet system throughout our property, we use the sun to heat water during the summer months and wood for heating both the yurts and water in winter. We grow as much as we can each year in our organic vegetable garden and we harvest and press our olives each year. Our yurts are made in the Mongolian style, on site in Portugal, using pine and chesnut wood from our land. We plank the wood on site. Almost all the furniture inside the yurts is also made by hand on site. We are also working towards re-generating the native sweet chestnut forest on our land.

Fiona Macleod

Fiona is a mother of three and lives on site in Portugal, facilitating and teaching on retreats. She was introduced to yoga as a teenager in secondary school, Australia. Fiona completed formal training to teach in 2009 at Byron Yoga Centre, Australia and teaches classes locally in Portugal. She teaches a breath led practice incorporating both vinyasa, and slower asana with more focus on alignment and deep release. Fiona incorporates viniyoga (the therapeutic aspects of yoga), into her teaching, and can offer private classes for specific health issues. She has also completed training to teach both pre-natal and post-natal yoga.

'Yoga always felt right for me. From the young age that I was initially introduced to the postures and relaxation practices, it has always been a part of my life. In the beginning yoga grounded and centred me, then it took me on a massive journey of self discovery which is ongoing. Now it's nurturing qualities give me the strength and energy to manage the complexities of looking after a family and the challenges of living sustainably in Portugal. Yoga helped me to process the immense grief of losing my mum just over five years ago, and continues to aid my physical recovery from pregnancy and childbirth.'

“I had the great pleasure of experiencing Fiona's two yoga classes located at her beautiful yoga Yurt retreat in Portugal. Fiona is a beautiful yoga teacher who gives her students the attention and support they need. Her calming voice guides you gently through the meditations and leaves you totally relaxed. I had an amazing time at the Portugal yoga retreat. It's one of the most beautiful, peaceful and free spirited places I have been to.” Sandra. London
