Mini Yoga Retreats – Portugal
with Rachel Lovegrove and Georgia Marnham
In addition to the week long and two week summer retreats, Rachel, assisted in August by her colleague, Georgia Marnham, is now hosting three “mini” retreats each year. These mini yoga retreats take place in March, August and November/December at Monte na Luz, Loule, Portugal. It couldn’t be easier to get away for a short yoga break as Monte na Luz is situated just 25 minutes from Faro airport, which is serviced by many UK and European airports and Lisbon International airport is only 2 hours away. The mini yoga retreats are designed to give students a concentrated few days of Iyengar yoga in the warmth of the Algarve sun, with great food, wonderful company and beautiful surroundings. The yoga course starts on Saturday afternoon and continues until Wednesday morning. Departures are after brunch on Wednesday.
