Our spring yoga retreat in April 2025 is the perfect opportunity to deepen your Vinyasa Flow practice and explore the transformative benefits of muscle tendon changing qigong. The retreat will take place at the Yoga Evolution Retreat Center in Central Portugal, surrounded by beautiful scenery and a peaceful environment that supports relaxation and self-discovery.

During the retreat, you will have the opportunity to practice Vinyasa Flow Yoga, a dynamic and flowing practice that emphasizes breath and movement. Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, our experienced teachers will guide you through a range of poses and sequences to help you deepen your practice and cultivate mindfulness.

In addition to Vinyasa Flow, you will also have the opportunity to learn and practice muscle tendon changing qigong. This powerful practice is similar to a standing sequence of yoga postures, and focuses on alleviating tension from the muscles and tendons using the paradigm of lines of pull throughout the body. The practice will build as the week progresses, and is open to all levels of experience.

Throughout the retreat, you will also have plenty of free time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. You can take time to explore the local area, go for walks in nature, or simply relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the retreat center.

The retreat includes 7 nights and 6 full days of practice and accommodation, as well as delicious, healthy meals that are designed to support your physical and mental well-being. Our retreat center is designed to support relaxation and rejuvenation, with comfortable accommodation and peaceful surroundings that help you disconnect from the stresses of daily life.

Whether you are looking for a transformative experience or simply a chance to recharge and rejuvenate, we invite you to join us for this unforgettable retreat experience.

The Retreat Grounds

The combination of yoga and sound healing can be a powerful way to deepen your practice and promote relaxation and healing. The planetary gongs used in our sound healing sessions are tuned to the frequencies of the planets, creating a unique and transformative experience for participants. The shamanic drum journeys can also be a powerful tool for inner exploration and healing, allowing participants to connect with their inner selves and tap into their intuition.

In addition to the sound healing and shamanic journeys, our April yoga retreats in 2025 are designed to help individuals establish or build on their yoga and meditation practice. Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, our experienced teachers provide guidance and support to help you deepen your practice.

During the retreat, you will also have the opportunity to nourish your body with delicious, healthy food. Our vegan/vegetarian menu options provide a range of nutritious and flavorful meals to support your health and well-being. If you have any specific dietary requirements, we are happy to accommodate them to ensure that you have a comfortable and enjoyable retreat experience.

Reviews by our guests

Heaven is a place on Earth

This is the 2nd time I’ve visited Yoga Evolutions and probably won’t be my last. First time was a Yoga retreat and 2nd time a Yin Yoga teacher training.

There are so many ways I could describe what Peter and Sue have built here, but one will do…magical.
Magical in a way that being there is transformative, healing, nourishing and honesty you come away feeling you’ve hit the pause button.

Peter and Sue have so much knowledge about their craft and are so very generous in the ways they share it with you. They live and breathe a way of life that most wellness Instagram influencers couldn’t even dream up let alone manifest.

If you want to dip your toe into a beautiful retreat or are a yoga teacher wanting to train in Yin, this is the place for you.

Magical retreat

It's going to be difficult to put into words just how magical this experience was, but I'll give it a go.

The retreat is up in the hills above Oleiros and it's breathtakingly beautiful. Draped over the side of a valley is a string of beautiful white buildings - our little houses, the yoga practice shala and the dining area. They overlook a lush garden (complete with Willow the donkey), the amazing salt water pool and a forested valley.
Sue and Peter, our hosts and teachers, could not have been more welcoming, down to earth, funny and generous. We practised for 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the evening, doing a mixture of ashtanga, yin and Qigong. And what Sue and Peter don't know about these philosophies you could write on a grain of rice. Then there were the gong baths and the shamanic drum journeys. Wow! If you love a dog joining you on the yoga mat, then this is the place for you.

I could write pages about the food. Just to say the chef, Sherrin, gave us a huge variety of delicious vegetarian meals and we were never hungry!

Everything about the Evolution retreat was beautiful, but the most special part for me was bonding with people I hope to know for the rest of my life. We laughed until it hurt and listened to each other's stories.
I realise this is coming across as a bit effusive, but you really have to visit Sue and Peter's retreat to understand that my gushing doesn't even say the half of it. As one of our magnificent women said at the end: "I feel 10 years younger and 5cm taller" x
