 Registration is closed for this event
Do you need a complete reset of your body, mind and spirit? If so, then don’t miss this potent retreat where you will deepen your yoga and meditation practice, balance your chakras and benefit from some winter sun on the Algarve coast.

Would you benefit from a rejuvenating break with a supportive Dru Yoga team on the beach? Do you need some fresh ideas to deepen your yoga and meditation classes? Would you like to gain profound insights about your spiritual practice so you can be of service to the world? Then join our team of Dru Yoga and meditation senior tutors in the warm Algarve sunshine for this profound yoga, meditation and philosophy retreat.

Expand your knowledge of Dru Yoga sequences - old favourites and some new techniques to strengthen your personal practice and teaching repertoire. Our daily sessions on the chakras will revolutionise how you optimise your health, energy, emotional balance and spiritual self-development. There will be sunrise yoga sessions, beach walks and long afternoon siestas to give you the rest and relaxation you deeply deserve. Gain depth in your meditation practice from sessions with meditation masters to bring strength and calmness to your life. Enjoy talks exploring yoga philosophy and enjoy daily lectures and practical sessions to balance your chakras.

This retreat is for Dru Yoga teachers, trainee teachers and Dru students. It will renew and bring a strong grounding to your practice, and take it deeper. We shall also look at how your personal practice is working for you, and if there are any changes or additions that can help you further on your yoga journey.

This retreat is held in the Alfamar Sport and Beach Hotel, a stone’s throw from a beautiful 15 km sandy beach with fabulous red cliffs. It’s the perfect location for long beach walks, sunrise meditations or a refreshing paddle in the sea!  We come again and again to this venue due to its excellent location, although the hotel’s accommodation and food are of a simple standard. The food is buffet style, with a variety of fresh salads, local specialities and a vegetarian and vegan option at each meal.

This retreat exceeded all of my expectations, it has been out of this world. Everything contributed from the sun, the sea, endless golden sands so near to the hotel, lovely rooms, the fabulous teachings, the sense of nurturing and care from the tutors, support staff and fellow students.

 

Allison Grant, Alison Massey & Sonia Hurel

After arriving exhausted, we’re leaving with the sun in our hearts and so many beautiful memories. We’re completely transformed and energised with the love & warmth. We're feeling nurtured and ready to take this energy back to our work, family & friends.

The catering team try their best to provide vegan/vegetarian choices for us, and although it’s not quite like Snowdonia Mountain Lodge catering, it’s usually fine. There is a small supermarket close to the hotel if you need any other food supplies.



Feedback from the last retreat was that some participants appreciated arriving early or staying on for a night or two to make the most of the retreat teachings. This is possible, please arrange this with the accommodation team.
