Advanced Thai Yoga Massage retreat in Alenquer, Portugal
Thai Massage for Healthy Backs
Join us in rural romantic Portugal for a true immersion into the art of Thai Yoga Massage. This is a retreat and a training course in one ~ perfect to go deep, find more presence, connect with your Self and nature, and expand your repertoire and techniques.
A lot of people we treat present problems with their back and often lower back pain. A mobile and vital spine is important to maintain general health, and better ease of movement allows for a better quality of life. This course is for anyone with prior Thai Yoga Massage training offering the opportunity to expand on your knowledge, your repertoire and techniques in order to give a more therapeutically relevant treatment. Aside from learning some generally more advanced material such as dynamic moves, how to use your feet, knees and elbows, we will also focus on some particular techniques on the spine and to restore its natural vitality.
Casa do Limoeiro set amongst the rolling hills of Alenquer is the perfect setting offering the ideal environment for study, focus, connection and practice.

About Casa do Limoeiro
Casa do Limoeiro is a traditional house in an idyllic little village in Alenquer, 45 minutes north of Lisbon. The large garden offers not only a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the country air, but an abundance of fruit and vegetables for our meals.
Accommodation is designed for sharing, rooms are simple and comfortable. One room is en-suite, but there are plenty of bathrooms for everyone to share. The yoga shala and practice space is a very light space with beautiful views of the organic kitchen garden. Roaming peacocks and chickens may provide some entertainment ;)
The food is made with natural ingredients prepared with care and consideration. The organic, locally sourced, naturally high-in-energy and balanced meals will provide delicious replenishment for body and soul.
Half-way through the week, we will have half a day off. Depending on what people want to do and also the weather, we can organise a walk, trip to the coast, visit of a local vineyard amongst other things.
