Enjoy an extended weekend with Georgia Marnham on an eco-farm on the Atlantic coast in the Sintra national park — Georgia is a Certified Iyengar yoga teacher (Jun Int 3) who has been teaching for nearly 20 years.
The first class will start on Thursday September 19th at 5pm (this is flexible depending on guest arrival times) followed by the first of our delicious vegetarian meals cooked where possible with produce grown on the eco quinta (small farm). Accommodation is available from 2pm.
The following 3-days: Friday 20th September – Sunday 22nd September starts with an early pranayama class (optional), tea break followed by an asana class. There is an extensive morning brunch at 11am. During the afternoon you are free to relax on the quinta in your rooms or by the natural pool or explore the local area with beaches, mountains in the national park, coastal walks, and the world-heritage town of Sintra, that is situated within the hills of the Serra de Sintra. Hidden within these pine covered hills are extravagant palaces, opulent mansions and the ruins of an ancient castle. The yoga will recommence at 5pm followed by the evening meal.
Monday September 23rd is the final day and includes the morning asana class followed by the farewell brunch. Accommodation is available until 2pm. Guests are also welcome to stay on after the retreat (there are daily yoga classes available) or arrive early before the retreat starts.
There is a variety of accommodation available on the quinta and in two nearby villas all with their own private pool and extensive grounds.
Prices start at: €390 for glamping in a traditional Mongolian yurt, €410 for a shared room, €450 for a twin or couple, or €530 for a single room. (Prices are per person and do not include airfares.)
The price includes all 11 yoga classes and the superb brunch and evening meals with the option to prepare an afternoon packed snack at the end of the brunch. If you would like to bring a non-yoga-practising partner sharing the room with a yoga practitioner there would be a €100 reduction. You can also have a non-residential price and find alternative accommodation at the many nearby AirBNBs for €250 .
The nearest airport is Lisbon, approximately 45 minutes away by car or 90 minutes by public transport. For guests arriving by train to Sintra Portela train station, taxis can be arranged to reach Quinta Ecosophia (approximately 15 minutes’ drive away).
Some guests opt to hire a car to explore the local area and visit nearby attractions. Sometimes students have often shared cars for such visits.
A €100 deposit reserves your place on the retreat and the balance would be payable a month before the retreat..
