Activities and Excursions

In between our classes, posture clinics, and workshops we will explore everything that Northern Portugal has to offer. Day trips and excursions to nearby UNESCO heritage villages and cities such as Porto, Guimarães, and Braga will be offered. We will go wine tasting in the beautiful Douro Valley. We will enjoy a night of traditional Portuguese Fado music. And please remember, everything is optional… this is your vacation! We will have a full schedule of classes, activities, and excursions lined up but we encourage you to do as much or as little as you’d like…. relaxing by D’Alijo’s onsite pool with a juice or smoothie in hand, taking a hike in nature around the beautiful grounds, or treating yourself to a relaxing massage or healing treatment sounds like a pretty perfect afternoon too!
