*While this is an example of the daily schedule for the week, we also ask that you be open and aware that the schedule can (and probably will) take a few minor changes. We promise, if things change, it will be for the good of the group.

We will close the week on the 11th with a buffet lunch and a closing circle to see everyone safely on their way.

Casa do Monte – Douro is a majestic manor house set at the entrance to the Douro Valley of northern Portugal. For centuries it was the heart and soul of a large farm covering the surrounding area. Today it has been renovated into a luxurious holiday home that is now the perfect mix of traditional Portuguese character and modern-day comfort. The house is extremely spacious and offers many amenities. It is perfect for either isolating yourself or enjoying the group. While the house is very isolated and provides a large amount of peace, it is easily accessible from Oporto airport (around 90km or 70 minutes’ drive).

Activities around the house

We will practice in a fully equipped rustic yoga studio, but there are other extravagant amenities at your fingertips: a swimming pools, a jacuzzi, a private mini-gym, a projection room, and much more.

Outside of the house is just as breath-taking as the inside. Set in the “wine country” of Portugal, there will be a few walks planned around the gorgeous grape vineyards, nearby river and other natural scenery just waiting to be explored at your leisure.

Participants can arrive anytime after 12 pm on Saturday the 4th. We will have a welcome meeting at 4 pm and then a light Vinyasa practice followed by dinner and a sound healing concert to fully commence your experience.

There is a full kitchen and 3 delicious vegetarian meals will be prepared for you using local products (some grown on the property’s own farm) to complete your yogic experience.

If you are interested in eating fish or meat, that can also be prepared. Snacks, water, tea and coffee will be available all day. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.
