Yoga Retreat locations – Portugal

We are delighted to announce that school founder Yogacharya Lalit from India is hosting his annual European retreat in the Algarve, Portugal this year!

The Retreat location is at Vida Pura Centre – this beautiful retreat centre is located on the Algarve in a quiet, peaceful coastal national park location with amazing views and direct access to Odeceixe Beach. This area has lovely walks and hikes and the beach is a great place for learning to surf or simply relaxing and soaking up the sun. Pura Vida is located 1.5 hours from Faro airport which has direct flights from Cork, London and other major European cities. Airport transfers are available to Pura Vida from the airport. If you wish to see more about the retreat location you can visit www.vida-pura.com

Enjoy a variation of dynamic practices with Lalit designed to restore and invigorate with a focus on developing personal practice through Vinyasa flow and Ashtanga inspired classes twice a day.




Yoga Retreats in Spain are held in the beautiful mountain region of Sierra Nevada, Spain. The region is known as a place of reflection and meditation, its beauty unchanged over the ages. Higher up from the training location there are steep sided glacial valleys, high pastures, and high terraces cut into the hillsides. In 1982 His Holiness Dalai Lama visited the Tibetan Buddhist Centre higher up in the southern sierra, and blessed it as ‘O Sel Sing’ which means Place of Clear Light. This peaceful location is perfectly suited for an intensive training and spiritual immersion.


Our trainings and yoga retreats are held at the Alqueria de Morayma resort, a traditional group of homesteads and farm buildings that have been transformed into a traditional Spanish style guest complex. It is situated on the southern flank of the Sierra Nevada Mountains on a rise above the river Guadalfeo with panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada National Park. The nearest town of Cadiar is 3 kilometres away. Beautiful Granada city is 2 hrs ‘downhill’.



Accommodation and Faciilities

The resort is made up of a group of buildings set out on different level terraces in the form of a compact little Alpujarra village with its courtyards, alleyways, arcades and gardens. The twenty units are apartment style shared rooms (single occupancy is available on early request- surcharge applies). Each unit is decorated to represent the region in style and decoration with typical flat roofs, slate eaves, flat roofs and covered walkways.


Most of the rooms have mountain views. There is a plunge swimming pool and a great restaurant – serving vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, which has a Bodega for the organic winery. There is free wi-fi available in the library and dining room and laundry service upon request.
