Global Flow Yoga Retreat Portugal with Nicole Bongartz & Frank Schuler 2017

'Closer To You' - Yoga Retreat Portugal

Nicole and Frank will guide you through intense yoga practices based on their experience after teaching and lecturing almost daily for the past decade. The emphasis will be on an efficient and mindful practice, during the challenging moments in the physical practice as well as during the meditation and pranayama exercises.
This week will guide you towards, and increase, your strength, energy and joy. But also offer you relaxation, serenity and a deeper sense of self: it will bring you ‘Closer to You”.
There will be plenty of free time for you to take time for yourself, get to know each other and just chill. September is the best month of the year to visit Portugal and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Each day starts with a powerful, workshop-like session of at least 2 hours in which we will dive deep into different  parts of the Asana practice. During the often nice and cool afternoons you will enjoy an advanced meditation and pranayama class, exploring different techniques.
Bring your Family! You're not alone, and don’t like to leave your loved ones at home in the rain? Reguengo is like a little paradise for children and family. If your partner does not take part in the retreat program, you can still enjoy your holiday here with them, spending your free time together. Childcare can be arranged.

Nicole Bongartz


As founder and owner of Vishnu’s Couch, organizer of the Yoga Conference Germany, trainer of Vishnu’s Couch Yoga School, author of various magazines and passionate teacher of many close students, and last but not least life-ling students, Nicole is certainly one of the most colorful and prolific figures in the German yoga scene.


Staying grounded, enjoying life with all her senses, dancing and never losing contact with the students. she follows the voice of her heart and follows her own yoga path with courage, discipline, and last but not least, a lot of joy.


Her classes and workshops can not be categorized in one specific yoga style. And why should we want to? It’s all yoga!

Frank Schuler


Frank Schuler has been practicing and teaching Yoga for over 14 years and is still excited todiscover and let in more calmness, brightness and inner strength.
He is fascinated and touched daily by the awareness and mindfulness of all 'human affairs'—the body, emotions and the human mind. He is happy to be a student of Tsakpo Rinpoche on the path of Tibetan Karmapa Buddhism.
Frank runs the Lord Vishnus Couch Studios in Cologne, Germany, and the Yoga Conference Germany. He teaches classes and workshops.


We will be staying at the beautiful cottage style Reguengo retreat,  located in the green, wooded hillls of Monchique, close to the ocean and surrounded by silence.
It is family friendly with the option for families to book a bungalow with two or three rooms. But you can also join us by yourself or as a couple.
All rooms and bungalows offer a beautiful view of the green countryside. In your free time you can relax on the lounge furniture outside, read a book, or take a walk to the beach.
We will enjoy delicious buffet style breakfasts and dinner, freshly prepared by Reguengo’s cook who specialises in colourful, vegetarian cooking.
