Yoga... Our 8 day Surf & Yoga Package offers an excellent detailed introduction to Yin & Yang yoga for beginners and the chance to dive deep into more advanced practice. Our sessions are held in the morning down by the beautiful sea for sunrise and in the afternoon down near the beach or in the nature park just near The Salty Pelican. Practicing Yang & Yin yoga will help to harmonize the nervous system, increase your sense of balance with the body & mind and strengthen your lymphatic system. There is no yoga scheduled all day on Mondays (Yoga free-day) or on Thursday afternoons to give you the time to enjoy either some other activities we offer, go exploring Lisbon city or the beautiful Arrábida National Park. You can join your first included yoga class on your arrival date in the late afternoon, if it does not fall on a Monday or Thursday.
Sunrise Yang Yoga... Experience revitalizing Yang Yoga sequences at sun rise to give you all the energy and focus you need for the day. Atena our in house yoga instructor will help develop muscular strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, and breathing. Atena will bring balance to your body and mind during our morning practice, so that we build our bodies to be light and strong. The mental benefits of yoga include an increased sense of focus and awareness to the human form and body. This practice is for all level yogis.... You don’t need any earlier experience. * Yoga studio will be used in case of bad weather including cooler temperatures and strong winds.
Afternoon Yin Yoga... In the late afternoon we start our practice with Yin Yoga... We hold long deep postures with a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Almost every posture is done at floor level and the stretches will maintain for 2-5 minutes at a time. This will take us deeply into our connective tissue expanding flexibility and aiding healing energy to our bodies.This practice is for everyone and it's a beautiful way to start your yoga journey. * Yoga studio will be used in case of bad weather including cooler temperatures and strong winds.
Surf Lessons & Unlimited Surfboard Use... After breakfast the surf van picks you up and you’ll head out to the beach for your morning surf lesson. Our surf school is run by a team of certified instructors who follow a very unique approach in teaching. They will make sure that you learn the proper surf techniques and have loads of fun while doing it. The unique geography of our location means we not only have rideable waves almost every day of the year but that we can almost always find a wave to suit everyone. There will be free access to all our surf equipment including a wide range of surfboards and wetsuits for you to use at anytime during your stay with us. This package includes 5 surf lessons only but you can optionally book more surf lessons once you are here, at an additional cost.
Massages... Monika our in-house masseuse will pamper your body with a relaxing deep tissue Ayurveda massage. Trained and a practitioner in Austrian high end hotels and other parts of the globe, her vast experience over 13 years will allow you to fully appreciate her relaxing Ayurveda massage in a long lasting way. This is an optional extra.
Meditation Hike ... Every Monday & Thursday afternoon we organise there an awareness hike down to the beautiful Ribeira do Cavalo national park beach. Here we will practice meditation right on the sand with a peaceful environment and astonishing views, then small snacks and wine to finish. It will probably be the highlight of your week here ;-) This activity is an optional extra but shouldn't be missed.
