7 Days Mind and Body Bliss Pure Detox Massage and Therapy Yoga Holiday in Sintra, Portugal.
Take a break and experience a divine body rest and unique peace of mind. Give yourself a gift of love and relax - you deserve it.
During the yoga Classes we will point at the exploration of the correct alignment which will bring you an understanding of the healing purpose of the asanas and the inner feeling of the body and mind.
We are really Inspired by the Tradition of Hatha Yoga and Iyengar Yoga. This method is a wonderful practice that uses a wide range of props to support the body to come into a state of relaxation and to provide more comfort or easefullnes, to respect more our bone structure.
BKS Iyengar said “For me, prop is not only for the asana. It should contribute to the position of the body which in turn can let the mind be calm and state of ‘chitta vritti nirodha’ be experienced. Body is my first prop.
The body is a prop to the soul.”

A balanced and healthy diet is as important as the practice for Almashala. Almashala also works in farming, gardening. Portugal has rich and fertile soil, they don't need to add anything. Almashala has been inspired by permaculture and biodynamics and they are totally committed to organic production. Ideally, a yogic diet would be rich in sattvic foods.
Sattvic foods are generally fresh vegetables, grains, and legumes, mild spices, and mildly sweet foods. According to Ayurveda, this is the best diet for a yogi to adopt. It helps keep the mind clear and Sattvic and makes you feel good physically and emotionally. as opposed to rajastic or tamasic. The food that Almashala provide follows these lines, most of the raw material come from our garden and all the receipts are inspired by a low sugar diet approach.
Almashala is located in a strategic location. Pure nature is a few steps away from its door. The Sintra reserve is one of the most suggestive natural attraction of all Portugal, and it offers infinite walking and trekking routes. From our place, you can arrive at the beach by walk, passing through an enchanting path in the forest, or following the river and getting lost in the valley.
Almashala loves to do walking meditation in nature, enjoying the peace and silence of the forest. They also love to do the beach walk. This area is famous for its 11 kM of coastline and 13 beaches, most of them located in the picturesque fishing village of Ericeira. If you love nature, this is the place for you.
