For a yoga week in Portugal, Monte Maravilhas is the ideal location. In the middle of nature in Alentejo, you learn through yoga and meditation to connect with body and mind. We invite you to make this inner journey. The yoga week is suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. Classes are held on the meditation platform, located on the hill, with beautiful views. Aqua balancing sessions are held in the swimming pool.
We start in the morning with breathing exercises, called pranayama. During the day we do yoga exercises, alternating with a refreshing dip in the pool. The program also includes a trip to the west coast.
The programme includes:
08.00 hrs, pranayama
09.00 hrs, breakfast
12.00 hrs, yoga
13.30 hrs, lunch
17.30 hrs, yoga
19.00 hrs, dinner
The yoga weeks are led by Atul Mulji, a yoga teacher and masseur. In 1978 he began practicing yoga in India. Atul trained at the International Sivananda Yoga Center and has a yoga and massage practice in Lisbon, Portugal.
Experiences of participants:
“Life in Maravilhas was a yoga affair with our powerful and funny teacher Atul, how we have laughed !! But of course also worked very hard and reached depth, experience relaxation and spiritual experiences that I have taken with me. And then Maravilhas itself, the care, the attention paid by Prem and her staff to the land, to us is special and very nice. It was crazy, I immediately said on arrival: ‘I do not regret it!’”
“Monte Maravilhas is a wonderful place to remember. It is quiet and beautifully situated. The ideal place for a special yoga week led by Atul Mulji. Yoga, walking and relaxing by the pool and delicious meals in between. Prem and team: thank you very much for the hospitality.”
