Accommodation

The Monte Velho bungalows are very cozy and warm with comfortable beds. It is your decision if you want to stay in a single room, shared with one, or shared with three fellow yogis. All the rooms at Monte Velho are en-suite and are cleaned every day by the Monte Velho staff.

Program

To help the detoxifying process of your body, Algarveyoga uses special detox devices, foods, and natural supplements to help eliminate accumulated toxins. Yoga has a very detoxifying effect on the organs and the yoga classes focus on poses beneficial to the detox process. Diseases are born in the body and their root is often over toxicity (body pollution caused by heavy metals, pesticides, preservatives, and other foreign toxins). More and more diseases are caused by the modern lifestyle, therefore cleansing is an essential physical process that brings health and happiness.

Through the combination of yoga and healthy vegetarian food, your body will receive a boost of life energy. You will leave the holiday with a deeper understanding of yoga, a healthy body, a relaxed and clear mind, and an open heart (and sparkling eyes). The detox not only happens on a physical level. You can also expect a body, mind, and heart detox!
