PROVISIONAL SCHEDULE

Roots retreat takes place from June  25 - July 2, 2023. Plan on arriving in Porto around noon on June 25, and leaving after 14:00 on July 2.

Once you arrive at the resort, you will have a few moments on your own to get settled and relax, meet some of the fellow yogis before we start the retreat later that day.
Each day is balanced between planned activities and free time. Pretty much everything in the schedule is optional as this is your time to connect to yourself. So it is up to you to choose and you can get into as much or as little as you want.

STORIES FROM THE PAST

"

Nuno is having fun while teaching, it's a pleasure attending his classes. Challenging too, he always offers you multiple variations to help you progress your yoga. He gives on point suggestions and defines the intention of the posture clearly. 5/5 from me.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CLIMATE

It is already summer and the climate in North Portugal at this time of year can be varied with great bursts of sun and warmth, but there is a possibility of some rain showers. But then again, that is why the country is so beautifully green. Therefore, you may wish to bring your own rain jacket.

HOW DO I GET TO THE D'ALIJÓ RETREAT CENTRE?

Aeroporto Francisco Sá Carneiro - Porto (OPO) is a major gateway into North Portugal and the main airport to fly into for this retreat.

You can fly directly to Porto from Amsterdam, using KLM, Transavia and TAP.

Plan to arrive by the resort no later than 15:00. If you arrive later, you might miss the start of the retreat.

OPTION 1: You can rent a car at Porto Airport. It will around an hour to arrive at Cabeceiras de Bastos.

OPTION 2: You can contact the retreat center for renting private/shared transport from and to the airport (extra charge).

IS MY PLANE TICKET INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

No, your plane ticket to Porto is not included. 

WHAT IS DIGITAL DETOX?

Digital detox ​is giving yourself the opportunity to disconnect from the online world and only be connected to the present moment and to nature. This is obviously not compulsory and is a mere suggestion so you can enjoy the most out of the retreat.

I WILL NEED TO BE CONNECTED ONLINE. IS THERE MOBILE COVERAGE?

Yes. There is wifi in the 'Mainhouse' and in the cabins and you also have mobile data coverage everywhere.

 

Reconnect with your

innermost essence.
