    Northern Portugal - Freixieiro

    Join Billy for a yoga practice and exploration in the beautiful countryside of northern Portugal. 'Freixieiro' is a stunning estate, converted into a modern retreat center. It is a grand 17th century family-owned property, complete with outdoor pool, inner courtyard and wrap-around arcades that stands now fully remodeled and redecorated inside with an impeccably clean, modern, internationally-inspired elegance and class. The estate sits on multiple acres of vineyards, beautifully tended gardens, and stands of old oak trees.

    Inside, the owner has built a beautiful practice room with true hard wood floors, ample props, ropes, and a view out over the hills and vines. It is an ideal place to unwind, enjoy the southern European summer, and dig a little deeper into the practice. Workshop limited to 12 participants.










    A second nearby estate, also owned by our host, with swimming pool and further gardens and vines will also be available to all participants. It is a short 10-15 minute walk from Freixieiro.



    Location: Freixieiro is a 30-40 minute drive from Porto. Group taxis can be arranged. Porto is easily accessed from a number of American/European cities - either directly, or by routing through London, Paris, and/or Madrid. Lisbon is a 3-hour train journey, or a 30 minute flight.
    Food: Delicious vegetarian meals, fresh fruit, coffee, and tea will be provided and served by the on-site staff. Meals will be taken in the upper garden in good weather. Or inside the cozy confines of the dining room in case of rain.
