Ashtanga Yoga & Meditation Retreat

Body relaxed, mind at ease – join us for this inspiring 6 day journey with David Keil & Gretchen Suarez in Portugal’s beautiful southwest Alentejo! While allowing plenty of time to enjoy a delightful holiday on Europe’s most stunning sandy surf-beaches this retreat smoothly integrates Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Buddhist meditation, exploring the spiritual as well as the psychological perspective on the yogic practices.

Each morning begins with a short sitting practice including meditation & breathing exercises which will be followed by an Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style class. In three afternoon workshops, we’ll focus on deepening our relationship to breath, bandha and the way in which the practice can and should be used to cultivate mindfulness. There will also be plenty of time to look into applied yoga anatomy and gain a better understanding of the postures, the world of fascia and the body in movement. During this week David & Gretchen will not only encourage & support everyone to establish a complementary meditation routine but also explain the connection of our practice to psychology.

Typical Program:

07:30 – 10:30 Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style Practice
16:30 – 18:00 (3 days) Anatomy / Technique / Meditation with David + Gretchen

Classes will be taught in English. All Levels welcome!

  • 6 Ashtanga yoga classes with meditation in the morning
  • 3 afternoon workshops (yoga)
  • 6 nights accommodation at Monte Velho Nature Resort including vegetarian food
