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.
