Wauw! What a beautiful time I've spent at this peaceful place in Portugal with Wolfs Yoga. From the first moment on you feel at home caused by the warm welcoming atmosphere. It's super easy to relax and enjoy yoga and nature there. Lot and Amwo are wonderful teachers who guided us this week through different styles of yoga which was very beautiful for me as a beginner.
We've had interesting conversations not only about yoga but also about healthy food and healthy lifestyle.
Super delicious healthy homemade food, Yoga sessions outside in the garden or at the nearby beach with lovely inspiring people around.
We spent a great week with lovely people and had a wonderful mix of challenging and relaxing yoga sessions, meditations, sound healing, silent walks and much more...all this in a beautiful environment and with delicious food! Perfect to relax and to come back to yourself. Thank you Lot and Amwo ?
One of my favorite yoga retreats to practice yoga and relax! I love the variety of yoga classes, breathwork and meditation. Passionate and experienced teachers run the retreat. The organic and vegetarian food they serve is amazing, super tasty and healthy! I enjoyed the refreshing dips in the swimmingpool, reading in one of the hammocks and walks through the national park to the beautiful beach! I deepened my practice and learned a lot! Amazing place!!!
My first yoga retreat, having practiced yoga already for 18 years. And yet in many ways, it felt the first time I came to fully embrace my practice and to feel union and harmony not only with myself but with those in that same sacred space.
The retreat was perfectly balanced and I really would not have changed a single detail of that week. I booked at quite short notice, choosing not to ask too many questions or to know too much about the group. By some beautiful fate, I found myself in a house with 3 other wonderful women, it felt to me as though each of us had transitioned there for the other, that we had answered some call without knowing it. We were all so different individually, yet together with Amwo, we felt complete, like a jigsaw, the pieces fitting with ease. Amwo has a special energy. He is fluid and peaceful, strong and wise. He quickly felt like an old friend. His yoga practice was carefully guided according to each personal level and the daily meditations were thoughtfully considered, each one bringing a different state of awareness and offering tools to dive deeper and to release unwanted energies, stuck emotions or experiences, exercises to invite a state of freedom and purity. I loved the noble silence in the morning, making it possible to start the day with a clean slate before the practice and afterward to allow it to settle and for any insights to come to the surface, without interruption. The beautiful villa felt familiar and homely and offered just the right level of comfort. Sharing this home for a week with everyone felt like the most natural process. Cooking, eating and appreciating fresh delicious vegan food together like a soul family. Walking together in nature. Visiting the most outstanding beaches. Sitting in stillness, sharing life questions and insights late in the evening by candlelight, complete mindfulness and respect for each other, exchanging wisdom and understanding, laughter and joy, to feel like curious children together, exploring ideas and feelings, without judgment. We were each so different and facing very different challenges in life, but I felt we were all united by the same truth which brought such a feeling of connectedness. I felt so much gratitude in my heart after this week, not only to have been in such stunning surroundings but to have been part of such a group and to walk away with each of them in my heart. Thank you Amwo. It is now my dream to visit again!
While looking for a yoga retreat in Portugal I found this little paradise. I’d highly recommend this place!!! After practicing 2 years every day, this was my first yoga retreat and it was a great experience. I’ll be back next year for sure! The yoga teachers are very experienced and helped me out with my sports injuries. The food was amazing and it was easy to get there by shuttle bus. Thanks!!!
Yoga with Amwo is inspiring on many levels. He brings great depth and clarity to the practice and has helped me discover aspects of the practice in a playfully elegant and beautiful way. I can wholeheartedly recommend participating in his activities and am looking forward to seeing him again soon!
What a yoga week I have spend with Wolfsyoga! Cut off from all external stimuli, challenging ashtanga yoga with Wolf, healthy food, nature, moments of silence. My mind really came to rest for the first time. The closing ceremony with the singing of mantras and the singing bowls gave a special feeling. Thanks a lot!
The place, the yoga units, the people and the healthy tasty food are fabulous and I can really recommend it 🙂 What I experienced is that Amwo is a really open minded attentive person and a great yoga teacher. You can sit with him on the fire or in the garden and forget the time talking about yoga and life. In the next moment you find yourself spreading your toes on the mat and going for a challenge. He supported me and the other students to go deeper in the poses and explore the asanas. The yoga sessions in the mornings were outside on the garden deck and the nature around is stunning. I really enjoyed every bit of it. Anna is the second soul in the house, she cooks amazing food which is rich of everything our body really needs.
Altogether I loved it there and I can just say: GO FOR IT AND FIND OUT 😉
I booked my first ever Yoga retreat with Wolfs Yoga in beautiful Vila do Bispo, and I absolutely loved it! Our group was made up of various levels of proficiency, and Amwo is a great teacher in that he is able to adjust the same practice in a way to make it fun, relaxing and still the right kind of challenging for everyone. We got to experience various different styles of both Yoga and teaching Yoga, since we had practice with both Harmke (who unfortunately could only join us for part of the retreat), Amwo and Luisa, who joined us for 2 sessions. Amwo also made an effort to give us a better understanding of the spirituality and history behind Yoga and how it can influence your life, while never pushing any of his believes and very patiently answering our numerous questions. While I personally struggled with the meditations, it was good to experience different styles and get a better feeling of what works for me and what does not.
Apart from that I enjoyed the companionship within the group, be that during or nightly cooking and dinner, the walk to the beach or just our conversations in general. The food was wonderful and I learned a lot about healthy cooking. And the Villa is simply beautiful - a quiet space that felt very safe and peaceful.
Overall I can absolutely recommend a Yoga retreat with Wolfs Yoga and I am sure I will be back myself.
Thanks very much for such a peaceful , relaxing, purifying and mindfulness week that I had experience in wolf yoga retreat ! I spent a week with Amwo and 3 beautiful ladies in the Vila . Amwo is very kind , helpful and knowledgeable to show me different yoga and meditation techniques. I Feel Very rejuvenated after this trip and lots of positive energy in mind and spirits ! This is exactly what I am looking for ! I definitely will recommend anyone would love to have sometime for yourself , connect with the beautiful nature and kind souls for a different vacation experience at wolf yoga ! I would love to go back again ! 🙂
I joined the retreat with Amwo and harmke. And I loved it! They are a good combination and both warm, calm and lovely people. The house is located in a really nice part of the algarve with beautiful peaceful surroundings. There was plenty of healthy food! Every night we cooked together which was really adding to the experience. I enjoyed the yoga also really much, both teaching different a kind of yoga with a lot of personal attention. Thank you
We had a wonderful week and enjoyed sharing yoga, great food, noble silence and conversation. Neither myself or my husband are particularly bendy, but Amwo and Hermke were both such great teachers for everyone - long time yoga practitioners and newbies alike, with their own individual style (and respond well to advance requests!) We relished the opportunity to make our own delicious food from all the great fresh ingredients in the well stocked kitchen. Our room was spacious, light and wonderfully comfortable, clean and with a great ensuite bathroom. We really recommend keeping noble silence as a couple in the evenings (not cheating when the door closes of an evening) as it will only strengthen your relationship. We found the workshops very interesting and the area is beautiful, with lots to explore.
