10 days recharging, rest and enjoy!
Every day a good start with activating yoga and meditation.
We stand up in silence and hold it until breakfast. Inner peace. Staying in your 'bubble'. After a late full breakfast, we will do a day trip. In the afternoon we will go back to the mat, to enjoy a relaxing yoga class.

Small scale is our characteristic. The group will consist of a maximum of 8 participants so that there is enough personal attention. Yoga experience or not, this week is accessible to every level.
This week is fully taken care of. You will be transported to and from the airport, so no stress to arrange transport or to get to the location. You are completely unburdened!

Quinta do Pomarinho is a former farm where you can enjoy silence, space and tranquility. Quinta do Pomarinho is located in the Alto Alentejo region, within walking distance of Castelo de Vide (5 km) and close to the border with Spain. Quinta do Pomarinho is adjacent to the beautiful hills of Natural Park Serra de São Mamede and our nature camping site is even officially in the park.

Quinta de Pomarinho is 25 hectares and offers a special holiday spot for walkers, cyclists, nature and culture lovers, bird watchers, artists and peace seekers. The special atmosphere on our quinta gives inner peace and ensures that man (again) is in balance or comes.

Friends of Nature house in Portugal
Casa Antiga is the first truly official Friends of Nature house in Portugal. The Friends of Nature House is located on the estate of Quinta do Pomarinho in the province of Alto Alentejo Portugal near the medieval fortified town of Castelo de Vide. The former farmhouse offers space for 2 to 10 people.
Lay out Friends of Nature house:
The Friends of Nature House has downstairs one double room with 2 single beds and one double room with a loft with 4 single beds. Upstairs are two double rooms with single beds. Bed linen and towels are provided. In the Friends of Nature House there is a shared living room above and below with a pellet stove upstairs and a wood stove downstairs and cozy sitting area. Furthermore, in both living rooms there is a large table where you can read, eat or play games.

During the yoga week we also do yoga on location, somewhere at a beautiful cork oak and we make it a beautiful afternoon. We walk to the local market on Friday morning to experience the real Portuguese life. There is enough time to walk to the village yourself or to do nothing at all. Books and magazines are available in abundance and board games can also be played.

There is a free afternoon where you can explore the area yourself or stay in the hammock for a long time.
Daily excursions include cultural, historical, and outdoor adventures. We will visit nearby attractions, enjoy an abundance of time in nature, and engage with locals in unique experiences. Hike along ancient roman paths. Wind your way through quaint villages.

Explore old castles and ruins. Drink a coffee with a bird's eye view of the region from the hilltop village of Marvao. Wander among the cork oaks and enjoy the vast open spaces and old farms in this region.

* The program may differ
* Depending on the weather, the swimming pool may open on 1 May

There will be a mix of different lesson styles such as Hatha, Resorative, Yin yoga and Yoga Nidra. A fine mixture of moving interspersed with deep relaxation, meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises). Experience what it does to you every day outside in the garden to start a long yoga class and in the afternoon to go deep into deep relaxation. The lessons are for all levels. The mornings are too cold to do yoga outside. Then we use the yoga studio, inside. Nice and warm and comfortable.

Joop Jan and Heidi are passionate Yoga teachers with a large dose of humor. Low threshold and personal attention are central. During this week we will bring out the best in you. We want you to go home radiantly, that you feel physically healthy and energized and that you have grown personally.

After the yoga class we go to the table for an extensive and well-deserved breakfast. Homemade jams and fresh eggs will not be missing. Every evening a delicious dinner is waiting for you. What could be nicer than sitting at the table and getting pampered with original Aletejano food? So, a top holiday!

Tea and water are available throughout the day, coffee at breakfast. Other drinks are peated and settled at the end of the week.
