If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind then try visiting Yoga Evolution Retreat centre deep the in the heart of central Portugal. Set in Thirteen acres of a forested valley with a beautiful backdrop of the Portuguese mountain ranges it would be very hard not to feel all of the stresses of modern day living just melt away.
The day at the retreat centre starts with a lovely cup of many varieties of herbal tea or even coffee if that gets you going in the morning. You then make your way for you morning yoga practice which usually starts with meditation and then either, ashtanga vinyasa yoga, vinyasa flow, dynamic yoga. After practice it is time for breakfast on the dining terrace overlooking the valley, all of the food is incredibly healthy and nutritious which will help restore your energy.
The weather can be very hot during the summer months but with the installation of natural sea salt water swimming pool you can simply take a dip to cook down or you can stroll down the forest tracks to visit the rock pools at the bottom of the valley. The pool is situated in the hillside and when you are in it, you have the feeling of being in an infinity pool with panoramic views all around you.
The retreat centre was originally a old derelict property until the owners Sue & Peter purchased it. They have spent over a decade making this a magical place to spend your holidays. The rooms are all well decorated and thought out and you even have your own library full of wonderfully interesting books on just about anything. You have a guest kitchen just of the Moroccan style lounge where you can just chill.
