6-13th September 2013
Join the Dru Yoga team for seven days of relaxing and revitalising Dru Yoga and Meditation in the stunning surroundings of Monte na Luz, set on a hillside in ten acres of olive, carob and almond orchards, with views of the sea and the surrounding countryside.
You’ll enjoy a week of relaxation and flowing Dru Yoga and meditation classes, as well as plenty of time to enjoy the swimming pool and gardens. Beginners and advanced Dru yoga and meditation students are welcome on this yoga holiday.
The venue for this retreat is Monte na Luz, which is located on a hillside near the historic town of Loule, near Faro. The magnificent Algarve coast is just 20 minutes away by car, near enough to explore its white sandy beaches every afternoon.
Monte na Luz has a beautiful octagonal teaching room, a cozy restaurant, beautiful single, double and triple rooms, a yoga lawn of 100 square meters and a delicious swimming pool, spread over an area of 2 hectares. The rooms all have private bathrooms with shower, toilet and a private entrance. The rooms are spread over the main building and several houses on the site.
The yoga and meditation sessions will be held either on the yoga lawn or in the beautiful teaching room.
What’s included in this holiday?
The seven day holiday includes a two hour yoga and meditation class before a substantial brunch shared in the outdoor dining area. If you’re rushing off to the beach, you can make a packed lunch, and then the rest of the day is yours to relax.
At 5pm on 5 days out of 7 there’s a 90 minute yoga and meditation class, followed by a delicious vegetarian evening meal. Included in the retreat are around 20 hours of yoga classes as well as 6 brunches, 1 self-service breakfast (on the last morning), and 5 evening meals. On two days we give you the whole day free after the morning yoga session to explore the area and arrange your own evening meal in a typical Portuguese restaurant (or self-cater in your accommodation).
The Algarve, Portugal’s southern-most province has a wonderful climate all year round and has 1000 hours of sunshine annually. It has around 100 miles of breathtaking coastline dotted with rugged coves, sweeping sands and secluded bays.
It’s a really beautiful place for a holiday – in your free time you can go for walk in the surrounding National Park, visit the local villages with their cobbled streets, elaborate chimneys and tiled buildings. If you’re feeling active, you could indulge in some golf, walking or horse riding. The surfing beaches on the west coast of Portugal are just an hour by car and in the other direction, Spain is only an hour away.
You’ll need to arrange your own flights and travel insurance, and taxis to and from the venue from Faro airport (around €30 - or you can arrange to be picked up by the hosts for €15). You’ll probably want to hire a car when you arrive, although taxis to the beach are quite reasonable or you can hire bikes instead.
