Yoga and Surfing Retreats in Portugal

Dates

September 19-25
September 26 – October 2

Our yoga and surfing retreats in Portugal for those who want to express this joy through their relationship to nature, open spaces, wind and yes, a surfboard!

Combining hatha flow, restorative yoga, meditation and surfing this retreat gives you the opportunity to combine the wonderful surf of the Portuguese South West coast with a healing and insightful yoga practice.

A happy week. Two yoga sessions, movement in the morning and restorative in the evening, sandwich a daylong surfing session.

Sun, waves and excitement at the beach, good food, lush gardens and lazy hammocks back home. All the good feelings and smiles of an Algarve holiday plus quality yoga lessons to support the healing, strength and flexibility of the body.

If you like to be physical and train your body (or want to start doing so) or if you are simply looking to throw some beach & waves at your yearly yoga retreat, this week will be unforgettable.

Last but not least: we keep getting raging reviews of our associates, Future Surf School. Serious, attentive and trustworthy instructors will guide your in your first steps onto a surfboard, you are in good hands with them!

Yoga

We teach hatha yoga for all levels. Jenny and Igor entered into Hatha Yoga through Ashtanga Vinyasa, loved the feeling of committing to practice and that of giving movement to the meditative process. Over the years they have slowed down and so has their practice, moving in softer styles, such as Yin or slow flow asana.

They are most interested in finding their voice, which practice suits me today? Practicing like this, asana becomes a vehicle for not only awareness but also joy and creativity. Their first meeting with meditation was through Vipassana and it is still a relevant part of our awareness training but we are also open to any self revelatory practice that offers a direct link to the heart.

Schedule

We have changed the venue for our yoga and surfing retreats in Portugal, searching for a return to a nature setting that inspires serenity and introspection and we found it at Aqua Ventura, a calm, beautiful, secluded off the grid retreat centre near the West Coast down here in South of Portugal. You have to see it. Let me rephrase, you have to feel it, so nurturing.

The hosts, Jonathan and Violeta, have a longtime experience in nature and sea activities and vast knowledge in eco and sustainable living, so even during the Healing retreats, you can easily leave the hammock to go surf, climb, cycle or learn about natural living.

The accommodation is a unique experience. Cottages are set among the Cork oak forest and is surrounded by a landscape of rivers, gardens and nature. Each space has been individually built, giving it a different style, view & beauty. Cozy areas, bright spaces with sweeping views of the spectacular natural environment.

Each room or cottage is equipped with its own bathroom but should you want to foray into nature, try the outside showers overlooking the river. Hidden among the trees you are secluded from the outside world but surrounded by nature.

In the lounge, there is a corner fireplace for reading, writing, games or afternoon tea…lots of comfortable cozy seating. The dining room is a large covered deck surrounded by nature.
 

Cuisine

Our lovely cooks provide the vegetarian meals with fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden. Most food is produced on the farm, organic and seasonal. Other products are mainly from local producers.

The Sweet Spot Cafe and Farm Shop are perfect spots to buy organic products from the farm or taste a glass of organic wine.

”Jenny and Igor are probably the most inspiring yoga teachers I have encountered during my yoga practice for the last 10 years. They provide a unique opportunity to get to know your own body and your mind, always gentle and kind and never judgmental. Do yourself a big favor and learn from these gifted and beautiful teachers.” Dominique Haijtema, Journalist and author
