Course description

Hatha flow, alignment, yin yoga, pranayama, meditation, and yoga psychology. We have two daily practices, morning and evening, where asana, meditation and breath are explained slowly and thoroughly, both in moving and still sessions, giving you the perfect chance to establish a solid foundation for your future practice. We will also include assisted self practice sessions along the week to help you design your routine for when you are back home. After breakfast we sit together in a non formal and relaxed additional gathering where we discuss our individual issues and share our experiences of how to integrate the spiritual principles that underlie the practice into our lives.

About the place

We have chosen to work in a natural organic environment.Vale da Lama is an Eco retreat center where nature and her needs have taken the main stage, all integrated into a tasteful beautiful environment where all the food served is organic vegetarian. The resort consists of 9 spacious rooms, all with en suite bathroom. Vale da Lama is a solar passive house, where temperature is controlled without any use of electricity, only by sunlight and firewood. Vale da Lama is a 20 minute walk to the coast or a 40 minute walk to Meia Praia beach.

Our lovely cooks provide the vegetarian meals with fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden. Most food is produced on the farm, organic and seasonal. Other products are mainly from local producers.

Jenny
Growing up in an internal world where questioning was driving, I became an observer of human behavior, my own and those of my surroundings. I tried to understand why we judge so hard, talk bad about each other to only later pretend that we did not. Why what was said was not read in the expression of our eyes. I spent most of my early childhood alone, or maybe just lonely, enhancing my role like an observer. My first teachers in this life were my parents. two extraordinary ordinary folks who loved and still love me fiercely, they taught me my most valuable lesson; that Love can exist without boundaries, it can be unconditional. I did my first meditation retreat when I was 22 and I understood that I was not alone in my pain, that I was ultimately responsible for my own happiness. Many years later, I have chewed, swallowed and occasionally spit out many teachings and ideas but I am still fascinated by what, why and how we do it and what happens next. Life, is an open ended proposal that just keeps expanding as my awareness grows. Endlessly.

I truly don't know and that is ok. But in the not knowing, in the uncompromising acceptance of uncertainty, there is space, space for surprises, for love and wisdom and space for me to grow and become whoever I need to be to meet the moment, regardless of who I was before. I am forever grateful to all those who are inspiring me to take this journey, teachers and masters from now and before, and to the everyday life heroes that silently put down a stone at a time on the road to love but I have always felt that it was my business to solve the riddle of life. And so I have developed a strong sense of responsibility and self-reliance in my practice and my spiritual path and I suggest you do too, for you know yourself best and you are your best friend. May we inspire each other to be love and to be free.
