VALE DE MOSES

Yoga Retreat Portugal

 

You are invited to retreat to Vale de Moses, a magical remote valley farm nestled in the stunning foothills of the Serra de Estrela mountains, central Portugal. Come to practice yoga daily in a wooden and glass shala floating above herb gardens, walk miles of endless paths in the surrounding pine forests, swim and mud bathe in rivers, breathe pure mountain air, eat deliciously fresh veggie meals, have a healing treatment, star gaze and then sleep deeply each night in comfy rustic stone cottages or Soulpad belle tents.

Vale de Moses has been listed as one of the best yoga retreats in the world by the following publications:

HEALING TREATMENTS

Touch is the most vital of ways to heal ourselves, and the touch of a professional can sometimes be exactly what we need to get us back on track. Your retreat includes a half hour health consultation, followed by 1 hour of body harmonising massage or Acupuncture. You can choose the most appropriate additional treatments with one of our experienced professional therapists.

NOURISHING FOOD

You won't be hungry as we feel it's important to nourish your body while on retreat with us. We're feeders! We lovingly prepare three delicious and nutritious vegetarian/vegan meals every day. Fresh vegetables, salads and fruit are available from our own or our neighbours' gardens during the season and from our favourite local greengrocers in Oleiros. Rich in pulses and grains, low in salt and high in fresh herbs and spices. Come and try for yourself!

REST & RELAX

 

Since we arrived in 2008, we threw ourselves whole heartedly into restoring the four Xisto stone houses at Vale de Moses, with great care and respect to the old local Portuguese traditions of building with natural materials: clay, lime, stone and wood. We hope you'll enjoy staying in these old dwelling places as much as we have over the years. If you prefer to be even closer to nature, the Soulpad belle tents are delightful.
