Iyengar Yoga – for all bodies and all levels

With Annett (dansk), as your yoga teacher during your stay, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery, bathe in sunshine with the magic of the Atlantic sea,  recharging your body, mind and soul.
Annett has been teaching for more than 19 years and organised  retreats in Portugal since 2011, besides running her regular group classes.

Copy of Yoga F 029 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.

Yoga Colares

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.
Yoga sessions are held at the new beautiful Yoga Shala at the Villa  with a view to the sea, set up with all equipment needed ie mats, foam blocks, bricks, belts, blankets and chairs- Iyengar yoga uses props to help students practice the poses safely.

The classes are taught in English/og dansk.

Reasons to Go on a Yoga Retreat

10 Reasons to Go on a Yoga Retreat
1. You’ll take your yoga to the next level.

Practicing yoga regularly can be challenging if you have 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 see the positive effects more quickly.

 2. You’ll get a new perspective.

Going to a new place creates an opportunity to see the world, and yourself, in a new light. Experiencing the unknown is an accelerated way to grow and learn. Getting away from busy and noisy cities to listen to the birds, sea and your breathing again.

 3. You’ll “actually” meditate.

When you have extended free time, it’s a lot easier to meditate. No cell phone buzzing or boss reminding you about deadlines. On retreats, it feels a lot more natural to breath deeply and be present in the moment. Yoga is meditation!

 4. You’ll detox digitally.

One of my favorite things about a retreat is shutting off my technology. While lots of resorts have wifi, you don’t feel the need to constantly update facebook or call friends. It feels good to unplug!

 5. You’ll relax and de-stress.

Sometimes we have to be far from home to give ourselves the permission to truly relax. Being on a retreat allows you to listen to your body, rest when you need it, and de-stress.

 6. You’ll eat well without having to cook.

If your retreat is all inclusive, you get three healthy and delicious meals a day without the need to find recipes, go grocery shopping, prepare the food, or clean up. Getting the nutrition you need has never been easier. All the work is done for you, to enjoy!

 7. You’ll replace old habits.

The best way to break a bad habit is to replace it with a new healthy one. When you get out of your regular routine for a week, you can replace unhealthy habits with conscious new behaviors that support you in being your best self.

 8. You’ll make new friends.

Undeniably, you will meet individuals with similar interests. Even if you go alone (which most people do), you have a chance to make friends with people from around the world who you might know for the rest of your life.

 9. You’ll appreciate home.

While a week in paradise is always nice, we often come home with a refreshed appreciation for life. You feel happier, healthier, and re-energized to jump back into your routine with new vigor.

 10. Because you deserve it!

BKS Iyengar said “Life means to be living. Problems will always be there.  When they arise navigate through them with yoga- don’t take a break.”  It is a lifestyle.
The key to happiness is deciding what you really want and making it happen.

 You deserve to invest in yourself!
