Location

Alentejo, Portugal

Odemira is a town located in the Portuguese region of Alentejo. It is famous for its wild beaches and for being home to a significant Dutch and German community. The whole of this southern strip of the Portuguese coast, running from the town of Sines to Cape St Vincent in the Algarve, forms part of the Nature Park of Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina, a region that contains rare species of flora and fauna and the only place in the world where the white swan can be found nesting on sea cliffs.


The region has taken great care to preserve its handicrafts and various craftsmen can be found here making baskets, furniture, pottery and hand-woven fabrics. Odemira's charm lies in its location on top of a small hill, forming a kind of amphitheatre with its brilliant white houses facing towards the river Mira. The source of the river is in the Serra do Caldeirão, but from this point on it is navigable as far as its mouth at Vila Nova de Milfontes, over a stretch of roughly 30 kilometres, a most beautiful setting for sailing, rowing or canoeing.


Almost all major airlines fly to Portugal. From the United States, American Airlines offers flights to Lisbon via Philadelphia SATA International/Azores Airlines from Boston, Oakland and Providence to the Azores continuing on the the mainland, TAP Portugal from Newark, Miami, New York and Boston, and United from Newark and Washington.

Food

Permaculture is a primary focus of the facilitators and delicious and nutritious vegetarian food straight from the garden will be provided during the program.

Monte Orada Retreat Center, Venue for 7 Day 50Hr Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training

Monte da Orada is an authentic Portuguese countryside home. It has all the essential commodities for you to be comfortable, but it’s still a home surrounded by nature, by the elements, lots of sunlight, lots of green vibrant life, overwhelming silence, and an amazing night sky.


Nestled in the heart of a nature sanctuary in the woods of Odemira, Alentejo, South West Portugal, bordering Algarve, Orada is a family run, eco-sustainable, community based soul retreat centre. This is a unique spot, offering wild canopy and creek vistas and abundant wilderness silence, with easy access to a host of amazing beaches just 15-minute drive from the site. Orada prides itself on being a space holder community, a force for innovative possibilities, new mindsets, not a standard guesthouse nor a restaurant.


Besides the stunning accommodation, all guests have access to all shared spaces: the biopool, canteen, meditation temple, chill­out panoramic solarium, terrace, stone oven, natural amphitheater lounge and all 71 hectares of the ranch, hiking trails, creeks.


The biopool is a fully self sustainable pool - it has an eco-system which keeps the water oxygenated and chemical-free, perfect for swimming and relaxation. It does not harm the environment, neither does it cause the problems that chlorine causes in humans and nature's health. The temple is the perfect place to contemplate stillness and practice mindfulness. It has 2 stages and holds up to 40 people. They provide mats, blocks, belts and bolsters.


Live in this natural sanctuary and enjoy being surrounded by nature, healthy and orginacally grown food. Be in a place of peace, tranquility, and soul nourishment. Monte Orada is 1.5 hours away from Faro Airport and 2.5 hours away from Lisbon. From Lisbon, you can travel by train and ride a cab or rent a car from there.
