YOGA TRAVELERS RETREAT with Martina O’Donnell and Breanna Brown ~

Cabeceiras de Basto, Portugal ~

September 1 – 7, 2020

Let’s explore Portugal! During this retreat we’ll practice yoga every day, relax and recharge, and explore the countryside of northern Portugal. We’ll be hosted by D’Alijo, a tranquil retreat center one hour outside of Porto, surrounded by vineyards, olive fields, and close to national parks. The center blends in with the natural beauty of the countryside with a rustic feel, while at the same time offering luxurious comforts.

Martina discovered yoga in 2010 while taking a sabbatical in North America. After her first Bikram class, she decided she would never do it again, and 9 months later she had graduated from Teacher Training in San Diego. Since then, she has been a traveling teacher worldwide while balancing a career as a flight attendant. In 2018, Martina traveled to Rishikesh, India, where she attended a Vinyasa training. The opportunity to conduct annual Yoga Travelers retreats is a highlight of her year. “Enjoying the practice of yoga in places with such wonderful energy and surrounded by such beautiful nature, with people from all over the world, is a unique experience that I would love to share with you.”

Breanna is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga Teacher. She has been teaching for 6 years all over the world in more than 20 countries and practicing for over a decade. “I look forward to keeping our retreat well balanced between rest, yoga, and exploration. My heart swoons for the mouth watering food and luxurious comforts provided by D’Alijo. There is nothing like being catered to for a week.”
