I was very lucky to spend a week at Michelle's yoga retreat and can't recommend her highly enough! She's a lovely and carrying person and was always making sure that everyone's happy and enjoying themselves. Michelle is a great yoga teacher and a mentor, she gave me plenty of valuable advice and changed my yoga practice perception, less is more!!! Her approach is authentic and mindful but still challenging enough to raise your heartbeat.

Apart from that Michelle is a brilliant masseuse and knows how to release tension in your body and to make you feel relaxed and refreshed. Really hope to do this again someday and highly recommend Michelle's retreat to anyone who's looking for an inspiration in their yoga practice or just wanting to create a healthy habit and improve their quality of life!

Belated review of perfect New Year break as I've been waiting to see if I could start to fulfill some of the intentions I set during a lovely relaxing few days! Great and fun company, fantastic tuition from Michelle with such attention to detail and technique, spacious comfortable accommodation and really enjoyable vegan food (a first vegan experience for me). Feel much more confident in my yoga practice now and committed to do more (and have been) with a new focus on body and mind for 2017. Three (I'm greedy) fantastic massages too. Thank you Michelle

Dear Michelle, Garth and I had a wonderful time with you over New Year's. Between thorough yoga practice, deep and relaxing massages, meditation, delicious vegan food, and last but not least, great surfing, we were lucky and blessed. Thank you for your genuine and inspiring approach to yoga, your generosity and caring. We felt like a big family with lots of love and laughter to share. Thanks again for such a beautiful time.

I had a wonderful time at the Ochre Hideaway. Michelle is a great yoga teacher, a superb masseuse and basically a lovely person to spend time with. She was very generous with her time and knowledge and helped me correct several mistakes I'd been making for years in my yoga practice. Her juices, smoothies, soups and cooking were simply excellent and I left with clearer skin than I have had in years. Importantly she also helped me get into a daily meditation practice, something I have never managed to do before. I hope to go to another one of her retreats soon.

Atha Yoga; Here yoga starts. Or when you started your yoga journey already it is definitely valuable to enjoy a retreat here.

What a wonderful experience in a peaceful part of Portugal. Michelle is a wonderful and professional teacher, a great chef and host. I had the privilege to be the only participant in a week in February. The warm fire heated the venue and the wonderful food, meditation classes and yoga asana classes warmed my body and heart.

The last three days we were blessed by very nice sunny days and even had a swim at the waterfalls. Whether you enjoy peace of nature, yoga, swimming, hicking or just reading a book (from the library of Michelle), all is there at the Ochre Hideaway.

Definitely a retreat to experience.
