Thousand thanks for this wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor´s Vale de Moses page
– the retreat I will collaborate with also this year !
Makes me so happy …
and the most beautiful compliment I could get was that I inspired you to try more vegetarian meals at home.
Hurray ! Lets lentilize the future !
“Inspiring week in a truly special place
I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Vale de Moses. I was lucky enough to be there at the same time as the fabulous Yuki, queen of vegan food. It’s probably quite rare to put on weight at a yoga retreat but I somehow managed it! If you’re going there, be aware of what it’s not. It’s not a luxury resort. It’s a group of dedicated and incredibly inspirational people who have carved out a beautiful little world for themselves in the Portuguese mountains, which they are kind enough to share with others. Accommodation is not luxurious but it is clean and very, very comfortable, the food is amazing and yoga classes are the best I’ve had in almost 15 years of practice. The whole experience was like a warm bath for the soul. Big thanks and hugs to all there, especially puppies and pigs Xx”
“Like a big warm hug
Vale de Moses is a beautiful place, the yoga classes are the best I have ever experienced and the food is delicious every day. But what makes this place extra special is the wonderfully warm and open people who work so hard to make the retreat welcoming for people like me in need of some distance from everyday troubles. A special thanks to Andrew, Fleur, Ollie, Ansuya, Peter and Yuki for your kindness, good humour and excellent conversation. I was so sad to leave you all that I am already making plans to return next year! ”
” I left my heart in Vale de Moses
but Andrew has kindly offered to send it back. I joke but, he would because it is the countless acts of kindness that makes Vale de Moses so utterly special. Every yoga session was an act of giving and kindness; every discussion before a treatment made it a personalised act of kindness; each treatment itself was an act of kindness directed purely to me; every astounding meal had kindness as it’s key ingredient. And each time the bed was made there was a little personal touch that went beyond the requirements of hospitality. Care, compassion and kindness flows through that beautiful valley. Hold onto my heart Andrew as I know it will be looked after well. And I would say to anyone and everyone, take your heart to the Vale de Moses at least once in your life. Thank you to everyone in that very special place.”
Also other blogs wrote about me & my services:
“…Yuki Jung is a plant-based retreat chef, cooking instructor and menu developer who relocated to Lisbon several years ago. She runs the All You Need is Veg Food Lab, where she hosts thematic cooking classes and sustainable events.Yuki taught a workshop for our tour group during the first vegan Lisbon tour that I led, in 2018. We made a three-course meal of veganized traditional Portuguese dishes, and everyone loved it!
But Yuki’s classes aren’t limited to vegan Portuguese food. She also creates special thematic events highlighting other cuisines. For example, she’s currently running a monthly series of Asian lunches, followed by a clothing swap.This month’s event will feature a green Thai bowl for lunch and a Carnaval swap, so people can put together a fun costume for Carnaval without spending an arm and a leg. What an awesome idea!
To schedule a cooking class or other event, you can register directly through Yuki’s website or write to her at her email address: firstname.lastname@example.org…”
María from the blog Comebebeviaja came to my Fitness Swap & Korean Bowl Lunch.
She wrote such a nice article about my new location. Muchas Gracias !
“…Lo comimos en una mesa de ping pong, mientras hablábamos sobre Lisboa y el mundo, sobre cómo cada uno había ido a parar allí, sobre futuros proyectos, y sobre restaurantes veganos. Fue tremendamente enriquecedor.
De postre, Yuki había preparado unos deliciosos muffins, que fueron perfectos para junto con otro té poner el broche final a la comida. Después, en la terraza, y con el sol de invierno dándonos en la cara, hubo un intercambio de ropa. Yo no pude participar porque como estoy de viaje no tenía ropa “de sobra”, pero me lo apunto para la próxima vez.
Yuki tiene una gran conciencia de sostenibilidad y zero waste, por eso organiza este tipo de intercambios de ropa, donde puedes cambiar la que ya no uses por otra que ya no use otra persona. ¡El próximo intercambio lo hará para disfraces de carnaval!
En definitiva, esto ha sido una experiencia única, muy recomendable para quien quiera vivir una Lisboa más profunda, conocer gente, o simplemente disfrutar de actividades diferentes…”
