About this trip

The “In Your Element” Yoga retreat is hosted in a beautiful quinta (traditional Portugese country house) in  Columbeira, a small village nestled in the hills of the Centro region. Columbeira may appear to be off-the-beaten-path, but is only 45 minutes from Lisbon and a 15 minute drive to the beaches of Baleal, and close to the medieval town of Obidos, local hiking trails and neighboring vineyards. Once there, you will truly experience all of the elements, from the terrain that surrounds the quinta, the fresh air generated by the surrounding gardens and hills, the water of the adjacent pool and nearby ocean, the warmth generated by the quinta´s fireplace and the Yang practice as well as the space around and within you, through meditation, Thai massage and a sense of belonging. That is why this retreat is so much more than its constituent parts. It will allow you to nourish your body and soul by coming to your mat, feasting on locally sourced vegetarian or vegan food and local wine, surfing, relaxing, making friends, and enjoying life away from the daily grind.

Vanessa Muñoz
Vanessa Muñoz has been practicing Yoga for the past 12 years, after her father introduced her to his Kundalini classes in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In October 2012 she decided to become a Yoga Teacher and enrolled in an RYT 200 Yoga Alliance course with Anamaya in Costa Rica, under the supervision of Paula Tursi from Reflections Yoga in New York City. On her return to her home town of El Paso she worked as an instructor at Casa de Yoga for 18 months before moving to London in the summer of 2014 and completing her RYPT pre-and postnatal training with Yoga London. After moving to Berlin in April 2016 she has worked as an English language Vinyasa and Yin instructor at Yoga & More, Aspria and Lokahi Loft. She is due to complete her 500 hour teacher training in her beloved Bali in February 2019. Her love of the sun and surfing stems from her student days in San Diego and living in Bali. So organizing retreats through her company, Desert Rose Yoga, was the obvious next step.
