We, Martina, teacher and practitioner of Yoga and master of Taekwon-Do and Bernardo, grand master of Taekwon-Do, teacher of Yong Chun and practitioner of Yoga like to share our skills and abilities and we want to do our best to inspire others to protect and preserve the natural world by living a simpler, greener lifestyle.

We have a 2 ha estate situated in the Beira Alta, in the heart of Portugal. Our natural paradise is located above the Mondego River, with views across the valley to the Caramulo mountains. Close by, but in the other direction, is the Serra Estrella which is the largest Nature Park of Portugal with the highest mountain, the Torre.
The quinta (farm) offers a variety of flora and fauna, influenced by the Atlantic climate we are surrounded by bamboo, olive, fruit, chestnuts and mimosa trees. We grow our own food in the vegetable organic gardens, which are stuffed full of flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables.
