Diana, this marvellous week has just flown by! Thanks for the loving and wise teaching about yoga ‘living’. The food was much better than I ever imagined! This was the best investment in me ever!

Retreat Overview


The Yoga Detox Retreat is our most popular yoga retreat. Whether Yoga is new to you, or you are an accomplished Yogi, you will enjoy and benefit highly from my specific detoxifying blend of Yoga postures. The level of instruction is personalized to suit each individual.

On a daily basis you will have two meditation sessions and two yoga classes, including asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises) and relaxation techniques. You will be served breakfast, a light lunch and dinner. All are based on simple, but pure, healthy, vegetarian yoga food. (food philosophy)


To help the detoxifying process of your body, we use special detox devices, foods and natural supplements to help eliminate accumulated toxins. Yoga has a very detoxifying effect on the organs, and our yoga classes focus on poses beneficial to the detox process. Diseases are born in the body, and their root is often over toxicity (body pollution caused by heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives and other foreign toxins). More and more diseases are caused by our modern lifestyle therefore cleansing is an essential physical process that brings health and happiness.

The detox not only happens on a physical level. You can also expect a body, mind and heart detox!

We offer all our Yoga Detox Retreats at the majestic retreat center of Monte Velho. Located in the rolling hills of St. Vincent Natural Park (Carrapateria), Monte Velho sits on the western edge of Portugal and overlooks the great Atlantic ocean. 

Life in Monte Velho is kept down to earth, though it is a first class resort with a large Yoga hall, sauna and steam room. The Monte Velho bungalows are very cozy and warm with comfortable beds. It is your decision if you want to stay in a single room, shared with one - or shared with 3 fellow yogis. All the rooms at Monte Velho are en suite and are cleaned every day by the Monte Velho staff. From the venue it is a 7 min drive to the beach.
