MaVayu Retreats

Unplug & Breathe

September 11 – 15 in Portugal

Mavayu happily invites you to beautiful Portugal for a retreat you will not forget.

Located at the most southwestern tip of Portugal we have found the best possible location for our first Retreat.
Come Unplug and Breathe at Monte Rosa with us!

This September join us from Wednesday the 11th to Sunday the 15th. Unplug from your daily life for just a little while. On our retreat we will be surrounded by beautiful nature. Come slow down and breathe. We will practice Yoga daily in the beautiful Round House with stunning views on the Portuguese landscape.

Our daily program

Our shala during Unplug & Breathe:
the Round House

We will start each day silently in our Round House shala with a meditation practice. After tea and a snack we will have our morning Yoga practice, followed by breakfast. Enjoy some free time to maybe go to the pool or the beautiful garden.

Find a hammock to relax at Monte Rosa

Then we will dive deeper into the world of Yoga through our workshops. The workshop will be followed by a delicious lunch.

In the afternoon you will have free time to freshen up, go for a walk or maybe find one of the hammocks on the property and retreat to read or take a nap. Our second Yoga practice of the day will be a slower practice to bring the focus back to the breath and wind down towards the evening.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be prepared for us by Monte Rosa. They use beautiful fresh produce, some from their own vegetable garden. You have a choice of vegetarian meals or meals that will include fresh fish.

Because we want you to discover a bit more of what the gorgeous Portuguese Algarve has to offer, one afternoon will be spent at one of the beautiful beaches that are within a short driving distance of Monte Rosa, followed by dinner on the spot.

Yoga practice

We are so excited to offer you a variety of Yoga classes. The more powerful and active vinyasa practices in the morning, slow flow and yin practices in the late afternoon. In all our classes there will be options to modify up and down as what matters to us most is for you to move in a way that suits your body.

Your Stay

Your retreat price will include your stay at the lovely houses and rooms at Monte Rosa checking in on Wednesday, checking out on Sunday. If you wish to extend your stay there is an option available to add nights to your tip for 45€ a night (55€ with breakfast).
