Meet our lovely team

 

 
 

Say a big hello to all the beautiful souls who come together as a team to create the most peaceful and restorative retreat experience for our guests. The shiny, friendly faces you see below make a part of our cherished Vale de Moses family. None of this would be possible without all their loving hard work. We couldn’t be more grateful to have them all aboard this Yogic boat deep in the heart of the Portuguese mountains.

During retreat season Vale de Moses is joined by an international mix of experienced Yoga teachers, chefs, therapists and volunteers who take time during the year to share their knowledge with us and with you. Whilst our dynamic international team changes throughout the season our dedicated Portuguese team remains an ever supportive constant. Made up of local individuals who have grown up in or nearby the surrounding areas. Our Portuguese friends & colleagues know these mountains well and work tirelessly year round maintaining this land and help to keep everything running beautifully. They know exactly how to co-create an experience that truly mirrors the humble and welcoming nature of the Portuguese people.

We can’t wait for you to meet this splendid bunch of wonderful humans!
