Magical eucalyptus and pine forests, sandy beaches and spectacular cliffs – the simple yet beautifully designed Monte Velho Eco Resort is located in a peaceful setting right in the heart of the San Vicente Natural Park, Portugals West-Algarve. This retreat is an invitation to explore the richness of ashtanga yoga while having enough space to enjoy the sun on the beach, go for a surf or just chill in the hammock on your terrace.
Each morning will begin with quiet reflection and development of the breath. Followed by a combination of conducted and Mysore style classes which will accommodate and extend practitioners of all levels. The four afternoon classes will support the morning practice and will cover fundamentals of asana, bandha, pranayama, yoga philosophy, chanting and stillness. Dena's authentic and holistic approach; inspire a passion for self-discovery and reflection. This will be further enhanced by a full day of silence and fresh juices.
Dena has been studying and practicing traditional ashtanga yoga for over 25 years. She is one of Sri K.Pattabhi Jois's most advanced female students. Having completed the fourth series in 1996 she is certified by the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute of Mysore South India to teach this method. Jack and Dena were married by Guruji in 1997. The arrival of Zoli currently 11 and Izac now 8 has completed the family picture. The path of motherhood has added a gentle compassion to Dena’s disciplined yet lyrical style of teaching. Assisted by Jack, family warmth and a love of the practice shine through to create a safe yet provoking class atmosphere.
All classes will be taught in english.
