In this project they used ancient and local construction techniques, resorting almost exclusively to noble materials such as stone, wood and iron, used very close to their primary form. Almost everything that exists here has been rebuilt, reconverted or reused, with industrial inspiration, seeking a contemporary rural reconstruction, comfortable and welcoming.

Terra Lodge is a lodging unit composed of 6 autonomous houses with direct door to the outside with capacity for 4 to 6 people. Houses have been rebuilt in place of old mill, corral and agricultural warehouse. Now developed, recreated and adapted to provide comfort and convenience to the guests. Every house is equipped with TV, Wi-Fi, minibar, microwave, and private bathroom.

Here you will have an opportunity to enjoy a fabulous breakfast made from natural products whether from the veggie garden (fruit and vegetables) or from local producers (Mafra bread, jams, regional sweets) that can be taken in the kitchen or on the outside porch.

The kitchen with its unique design is for common use, fully equipped and can be shared and used by the guests, with exception of private workshop hours. All the construction and decoration were made using noble materials such as wood, stone and iron, old furniture was rebuilt and renovated contributing to sustainability of the planet.



The course/hours count as Continuing Education hours for Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®) only.

Course information


  • Foundations of Yin yoga (passive)
  • Introduction: Dynamic myofascial release yoga
  • Tension release with massage balls

All methods work on the connective tissues and lead to deep tension release, possibly also safe and slow emotional release.


You will learn:

  • How to guide people deeply into their bodies through somatic experience
  • The connection of emotions to certain body parts and chakras

This training will help you and your students to:

  • Stabilize your own nervous system and help students/clients to follow you on this path
  • Release trauma, subconscious emotions and negative programming/thinking patterns mainly through the body
  • Using fascial yoga and other fascial release tools such as massage balls, intuitive movements + voicing and many more

The approach

  • All of the methods focuses on safe and slow emotional release and shadow integration
  • It supports deeper (trauma) therapy by slowly releasing suppressed emotions from the tissue memory and with that resolve old, chronic tension and energy blocks, that are reflected as love / success / health blocks in the outer world as well
  • They believe that true liberation and healing happens mainly through and within the body, rather than analyzing your stories intellectually

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by taxi

When Holystica Therapeutic Yoga School knows the arrival time of everyone, they could pre-order an Uber / driver to the airport, so that at least some of you can share.

If you don't want to wait, you can also easily order an Uber or Bolt yourself. It's around 30 EUR (35-minute drive from Lisbon).

So you will pay around 30 / 35 EUR, and less if you share.


You will finish on the 7th in the early afternoon, so that people have the option to travel back home or enjoy the area. Of course you can stay another night, let Holystica Therapeutic Yoga School know if you want that.

The price depends if they have enough people to share the room (then it would be 50 EUR per person). Max. it would be 99 EUR including breakfast for private single housing. Please be aware, that you might have to change the room the last night, if you still want to share the accommodation with the other students that will stay one more night.


October 3rd is the day of arrival, so you will have some snacks, fruits, bread, etc. to self-serve, but Holystica Therapeutic Yoga School wants to keep that day free for you to settle in and do what you want. It is a good time to go into town and explore the amazing restaurants, the beaches, etc.

Airport: Lisbon Portela Airport Airport transfer available: Lisbon Portela Airport (US$38 per person) Additional charges may apply. You can request this in the next step.
