Yoga... Our 8 day Deluxe Yoga & Massage & Surf 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 in either our garden or down 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 on Mondays or Thursday afternoons to give you the time to enjoy either some other activities we offer or go exploring Lisbon city or the beautiful national park of Sintra. 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.

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.
