Yoga Retreats


The retreat will give the participants an opportunity to emerge in the practice of Yoga surrounded by the beauty of the wild beach and forest of Meco. These 4 days will be filled with moments of peace, silence, joy and surrender to life in a cosy, professional and familiar environment. The instructor José Pedro is a very sincere and committed Yoga practitioner since 2005. His approach is made with passion, humour and care for the students. 


Throughout the 4 days of the retreat we will go deep into the understanding of the practices of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation. For that you can count with an expertise approach to all the subjects regarding the practice. From the alignment and adjustment in the Asanas and Pranayama based on the B.K.S. Iyengar tradition, through the depth of the conducted meditations based on the experience on the Awakened Life Project and Buddhist Vipassana Meditation we will create all the conditions for you to get in touch with the best part of yourself, with your Soul.


In classes there will be time for talks and teachings about yoga philosophy from a practical point of view.
