Yoga Retreats in Colares and Tavira 2017

Iyengar Yoga – for all bodies and all levels.

Our yoga retreats this summer are held again at the stunning location Colares next to Cascais and Sintra during July and August for later in September to move to the south east of Algarve to Tavira, to enjoying the late summer there.
Annett (Danish) lives in Portugal. She has been teaching Iyengar yoga for more than 19 years as well as organising her retreats here  since 2011 and running her regular group classes. She is a well experienced  teacher and her teaching is clear, dynamic with good attention to details and alignment.  She will combine a well structured class and body alignment in her own warm teaching style.
“Kind Words”
“Annett is an amazing teacher, she’s very precise, very attentive to each person and difficulties and she’s also cautious to prepare our bodies to the asanas with avoiding any injury and to help us to progress in the best conditions. She is a real professional. It was a pleasure to learn from her knowledge.” Aurélie

Yoga Colares

The practice of yoga is an ideal way to balance the stresses of modern day living, helping us to stay healthy and young. Practicing yoga regularly can be challenging for most people having a busy schedule. But when you’re on a retreat, you’ll have 2 classes offered a day, which will ensure your progress and you will feel the positive effects more quickly. Yoga nourishes the organic body through the practice of asanas (postures), brings clarity to the mind, and keeps the body strong, supple and heathy.
Yoga is for all bodies and all levels, yes and we teach our retreats on a general level, in a way that also beginners with some knowledge of yoga can participate and enjoy a yoga retreat for the first time as well as the more advanced student.
The groups are small and therefore the time to enjoy  our personal attention to each student, so all students benefit and can work on their individual challenges. For beginners the aim is to make you well versed on the important basics while the more advanced yogi/ini are assisted in evolving and working on their individual practice.
The classes are taught in English/ dansk.

During your retreat we will start the morning with a tea, nuts and fruits before the two hour dynamic morning asana practice followed by a good healthy breakfast, tea and juices served out on the terrace. In the afternoon you will have a 1.5hr restorative class followed by a delicious vegetarian dinner four of the evenings.  CHECK PROGRAM
