FULL MOON DOURO RETREAT
Yoga, Sound Healing and Nourishing Food
with Polski Kat & Catarina Ferreira
from 20th to 25th of June 2021
VILA REAL - PORTUGAL
Come and join us in Portugal's majestic Douro Valley for 6 days of yoga, nature and nourishing food.
Start every day with meditation and dynamic Rocket-inspired yoga to explore your practice on a deeper level.
Then savour a luscious brunch full of super healthy sweet and savory dishes with lots of vegan options provided. In the day enjoy the infinity pool and the sun, make the trip up to beautiful terraced vineyards where the port grapes are grown, go down to the river (private access) where you can also go swimming or boating or just hang out with your teachers, cooks and like-minded yogis.
Just before the sun goes down melt into a soothing Yin and Gong Bath. And then when you think things can’t get any better sit down to a thoroughly prepared 3-course dinner full of local organic vegetables, natural proteins, superfoods, and love.
We will stay at Quinta Vale Ermida, just over an hour’s drive from Porto.“Quinta” means country estate, and the old barns and stables of the grape farm here have been converted to a luxurious home with a large terrace and the infinity pool overlooking the river and the wonderful valley.
