Yoga, Massage and Acupuncture in the Portuguese Mountains

You are invited to retreat to Vale de Moses, a small old valley farm nestled in the remote and picturesque foothills of the Serra de Estrela mountain range, Central Portugal.

In 2014, from March til November, you can spend a week here on the edge of wilderness, in the beautifully restored home of the Winter family, beneath the village of Amieira, Oleiros. Practice yoga daily, walk in forests, swim and mud bathe in rivers, breath mountain air, eat deliciously, sleep deeply. Retreat.

This warm invitation is open for everyone, travelling alone or with friends, new to yoga or practicing for decades. But it’s particularly for those in need of a break. That’s why a health consultation, massage and acupuncture treatment is included in the price. Retreat from 650€ to 800€ per person per week. 10% discount for groups or 2 week stay. 

2014 Retreat Calendar and Reservations. See Spring, Summer and Autumn availability.

Welcome Pack to help prepare for your stay.
