5Yoga Retreat PortugalHere is what some of our guests have to say about their retreat experience:

“I spent the most relaxing, rejuvenating, fantastic week of yoga and juicing at Michelle’s lovely home. I learnt so much, now allowing me to get the most out of my regular yoga classes at home. Michelle really spoilt me and made me feel at home, making it such a special time away…. life-changing even! I’ll be back!” Sian, UK 

“Thank you for the fantastic week at your place. I have not been that relaxed and calm in a very long time. I will definitely try and come back.” Tessa, UK

“Thanks again for a truly wonderful stay…. I feel so relaxed and grounded.” Becky, UK

“Thanks for a lovely week, Michelle. Such a beautiful place, amazing morning yoga, massage and evening meditation. A perfect week for relaxing and recharging completely! I’ve learned and explored so much this week, and my practice will be even more meaningful in the future because of you. A perfect vacation.” Linn, Norway

“Thank you for an amazing week and for hosting us so beautifully in your home. The food was delicious, the yoga fantastic, and massages were divine. And I loved our many conversations. I leave richer in spirit and insights, lighter in stress and look forward to my new juicer!” Amanda, Canada

“I have just returned from the Ochre Retreat and I’m so sad. I want to go back there!!!! Michelle you are an amazing host. And such a wonderful teacher! you were right, I need yoga in my life. I have firmly been bitten by the yoga bug. I have come back feeling so enlightened and so relaxed. And I can’t believe some of the positions I have managed to get my body in this week! Thank you Michelle for your encouragement. Not only are you a fantastic teacher but you are also a warm and very genuine person. Oh and not forgetting an amazing cook too!!!! Thank you thank you thank you. I loved every minute of being in your wonderful home and I am 100% going to be back!!

I recommend anyone comes to this retreat, you will leave feeling healthier and so very refreshed!!! Book it now! You won’t regret it.” Sarah, UK

“This is the most wonderful and special retreat. I cannot praise it and Michelle enough. She is the most welcoming host – such a warm, lovely person – generous and with so much to offer. The yoga and meditation were brilliant. Michelle is such a skilled teacher. I learnt so much. The massage – well – what can I say??? Wow! What a brilliant and wonderful experience it was. I cannot thank Michelle enough for her kindness, generosity and understanding. It was the most restful and nourishing week.  I spent a lot of time lying around in the hammock, not doing much, which was just what I needed. Swimming is lovely and the walks nearby are very nice. If you are looking to relax, refresh and renew, there is no better place.”  Valerie, UK

“I had the most relaxing time. I had a private retreat and it was perfect. Michelle welcomed me to her beautiful house and I felt at home straight away. I went on the juice cleanse for 5 days – I’m now hooked on juices, I’ve even bought a juicer! I thought that I would be hungry but I didn’t even need my emergency banana and they were so tasty. They gave me lots of energy, my skin feels so soft and looks so clear.

The yoga sessions are really good and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I hadn’t done a lot of yoga before… I really felt like I have learnt a lot from Michelle and have been able to practice at home. You also have a massage done by Michelle, I thought I was relaxed and then I had the massage! Wow it was amazing! She is really talented and makes you feel at ease. Meditation in the evening is so relaxing. and the sessions get longer as the days go on. After meditation I sat outside and star gazed, as there is no light pollution you can see the stars so clearly, it really took my breath away!

I would really recommend this retreat, it’s a great place to totally relax and practice yoga. If you are starting out or have been doing yoga for a while I think you would all have a fantastic experience. The location is perfect with fantastic weather, walks and views. It would be perfect to do with a few friends too. Don’t hesitate, definitely get in contact now if you’re thinking about it!”  Charlotte, UK
