Situated in the town of Sintra, only forty minutes drive from Lisbon, the Shamballah Retreat is a popular Yoga retreat in Portugal.
Modern life can be hectic at times, and while there’s nothing wrong with staying busy, some of us are so busy working hard that we forget to look after ourselves. While some people claim to thrive in stressful environments, eventually the mind will need a break, no matter how mentally strong you are. Not only that, but thanks to our immediate surroundings, many of us are exposed to harmful toxins and chemicals on a daily basis, which can eventually cause lasting damage to our systems.
Toxins are in the products we use, the foods we eat, the beverages we drink and even the air that we breathe. Stress, coupled with an unhealthy lifestyle, can put your life at risk and can lead to potentially serious mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. There’s also the risk to your heart, brain, and your soul in general.
Stress-related health issues can be very serious, but thankfully there is a solution. That solution can be found at ‘Shamballah Retreats’.
Shamballah Retreats is situated in stunning Portugal, in a small and tranquil resort town known as Sintra. Here, guests can immerse themselves in a whole variety of healing practices and techniques, allowing them to do what’s necessary to begin the healing process. Located within a stone’s throw of the Atlantic Ocean, guests of the retreat will begin the healing process the very second they take in a lungful of the amazing sea air and listen to the waves gently lapping at the shore.
For people that are looking to escape the stressful hustle and bustle of modern city living, or everyday living in general, Shamballah Retreats is ideal.
