Quinta do Vale – holistic yoga centre
A retreat with yoga at it’s heart
Our Yoga Retreat is in Central Portugal, about an hour’s drive east of the ancient Portuguese capital city Coimbra, nestling on a wooded hillside above the town of Tabua between the River Mondego and River Alva. In this stunning, tranquil setting, we offer individuals, couples or small groups a real opportunity for a get away from it all holiday to discover that life can still offer peace, renewal and replenishment, to help you discover your true nature and to lose the sense of ’I’ and become one with everything.
Yoga sessions, guided by the retreat’s owner and experienced, qualified teacher, Tony Speirs (BWY dip), are available twice daily. Delicious vegetarian food is prepared from our own organic gardens and selected from the best of the local markets, or self-catering allows you to explore the bountiful local food options for yourself. The Tabua area is famous for walking routes, horse and bike riding, canoeing, watersports and other activities, with local hire of equipment easily arranged.
Most of the power for electric and hot water/heating is generated from solar panels, the water is from our own water mine and borehole and food is increasingly from our organic gardens. Visitors will be able to experience and see examples of how a self-sufficient life style could look. There will be opportunities for those who wish to explore organics, solar power, nutrition and other aspects of self sufficiency to see all these things at work here.
