    Great small group size. Great energy. Great teacher (Katia), amazing food, awesome massage (Evelyn), peace and tranquility. Lovely beaches. Great to have a dog rescue centre nearby to go and help walk the dogs.

    Thankfully I had hired a car to get to and from the airport. Without a car though the area would be a bit isolated if you wanted to explore.

    Shared dormitory but I think that maybe due to age. At first a bit under pressure at the expectation I was expected to stay as a group of people as I wished for time on my own. I did explain this to the other guests and did have some time on my own.

    The accomodation is beautiful and Eve is a dedicated and very knowledgeable teacher.

    Not a negative but having your own transport is hugely beneficial to get to local beaches and to explore further field.

    7 days relaxing in Prana Casa was my first solo travel and I was initially apprehensive but as soon as I arrived my worries dissipated.

    The yoga: daily at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Hatha yoga however there was variety between the classes so it wasn't repetitive. Due to the small class size each exercise was tailored and corrected for different levels. We also had the opportunity for a Meditation walk, a yoga nidra class and yoga on the beach. This left the rest of the day to do free to explore alone or with other guests.

    The people: Eveline was our yoga teacher and host who welcomed us into her home. She also arranged for us to do other activities eg dog walking, surfing etc. There were 3 other guests whilst we were all from the UK our experience ranged from beginner to yoga instructor. We were lucky enough to have Paresh visit; a Neuroscience lecturer, yogi and palm reader from India/Australia who gave a workshop on chakras which was interesting especially to those with limited holistic knowledge.

    The location: the villa we stayed in was homely with a swimming pool and sun loungers. However, in May it gets hot in the daytime but does get cold at night time - so don't forget a couple of jumpers. All the food is vegetarian, healthy but also plentiful although I did have a craving for chocolate when I went home! From here we could walk to the lake, to the cliffs or to the beach if you wanted a longer walk but everywhere was best accessible by car. Local transport around Aljezur is limited especially at the weekend - so definitely factor in the rest of your journey when booking flights.

    Extras: I went 'Adventure Horseback Riding' which was amazing. As an experienced rider I was a little skeptical as to what to expect however the route was fast paced and exciting with just me and the horse's owner. Galloping for miles across cliff tops in the most beautiful scenery was one of the highlights of my week.

    I've had the most amazing time at Prana Casa in Aljezur, Portugal. The retreat was a proper treat to my body and mind. Delicious food prepared freshly every day. Great area with beautiful nature for walks and also big sandy beaches with gorgeous cliffs. Prana Casa offers wonderful break as it is in a lovely quiet area where there was time to be quiet if you wanted and socialize with other guests, too.

    Yoga sessions were twice a day morning and evening and Eveline treated us all according to our levels and also pushed us gently over our limits which was great.

    I would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a break to relax, spend time with yourself, enjoy stunning nature, slow down and chill. I really enjoyed the meditation walk and all the other aspects of yoga philosophy.

    I would like to do it again. It was very hard to leave. Thank you once more for the unforgettable experience.

    I enjoyed my stay very much at Prana Casa; Eveline offers much inspiration to be a yogi on and off the mat and open doors to your own practice and your self after the retreat. I went for rest and recuperation and I certainly got that in the beautiful surroundings of the Western Algarve, the coastline is stunning. Eveline was very accommodating and helpful to anything that you may wish to do during the days as well. A lovely retreat that I would recommend to come home to yourself!

    I had an amazing stay at Prana Casa. Eveline was the perfect host and yoga teacher. This retreat was exactly what I was looking for : rest, inspiration, beautiful area with wild nature and landscapes, delicious food, great yoga classes. The group was fantastic with a positive energy. I warmly recommend Prana Casa if you are living a stressful and busy life, it's the perfect place to re-focus on the essentials and "to find a balance between body and mind" as Eveline says :)

    I was delighted to have the opportunity to be taught by Dr. Venky at Casa Prana in Vale da Telha, Portugal. With an ongoing spine problem myself, I knew I needed someone who specialised in the anatomical side of yoga. Someone with the skill and knowledge to teach me how to handle students with similar problems as mine.

    I didn't just want to learn how to practise yoga postures, I wanted to develop an in-depth knowledge of how yoga can improve people's lives.

    During our 30 day TTC, Dr. Venky was such a pleasure to be around. Although serious when he needed to be, his sense of humour and depth of character was certainly an added bonus. I really feel like I learned a massive amount (I'm still digesting it all!) and don't know anyone else who could have taught the way he did.

    I received a very warm welcome into Casa Prana on my arrival and felt like I was home away from home the whole month during the course. Not only is it located in the perfect spot for utter peace, it's also not far from some of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal. I would definitely recommend it!

    I Had an amazing time! Eveline is a great teacher and cook! I went on a retreat that didn't include surfing lessons but ended up paying for my own with another girl on retreat. It was lot of fun and I felt like I had loads of free time to read and enjoy the surroundings. Eveline was always trying to help us understand our own bodies and grow! I highly recommend renting a car or being sure to buddy up with someone else who is. Overall an amazing retreat and that I will definitely do again soon!
