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. In 2017 Vale De Moses was recommended by National Geographic Traveller, The Guardian, The Telegraph, OmYoga Magazine and Yoga Journal in their lists of best retreats in the world. 


Practice yoga in the mornings and afternoons in our wooden and glass shala floating above herb gardens. Walk miles of endless paths in the surrounding pine forests, swim and mud bathe in rivers, breath pure mountain air, eat deliciously fresh veggie meals, have a healing treatment or two, star gaze and then sleep deeply each night in comfy rustic stone cottages or Soulpad belle tents.

Retreat into nature. Soulfully reconnect with our planet and with your own body. This warm invitation to deepen your love affair with yoga, is open for everyone, travelling alone or with friends, new to yoga or practicing for decades.

We make it easy to practice yoga every day! Our schedule invites you to get on your mat twice daily. Your mornings start with an energising and uplifting vinyasa flow. In the evenings, we slow things down with nourishing yin yoga. Each day we practice meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises). There will also be a chance to explore partner yoga, massage, mantra singing, yoga nidra and rituals. Classes are designed to help you reach deep relaxation and a space for transformation. Instruction given in English.

We find joy and inspiration when we are truly connected to our deepest truths and heartfelt desires… when we align body, head and heart. But sometimes our busy lives leave us feeling a little dizzy and unsure of our true north. Perhaps some space to breath, reflect and dream is what we deserve?

Give yourself that space to reconnect to your inner compass. During twice daily yoga, inspired by ashtanga vinyasa, vinyasa flow, and yin yoga, we will delve deep into our hearts to shed light on our truth. We'll connect with nature and its rhythm to release old stories and invite new perspectives to our lives. We'll explore the power of journaling, rituals, breathing exercises, sound, touch and meditation to help nurture our unique journeys and live our truth. There'll also be plenty of time to just be and embrace the raw beauty of the valley.

This retreat is led by Mars, an Australian yoga teacher based in Europe. Her intention is to create space that allows safe, honest, joyful self-enquiry and transformation.
