    Lindsay - Yoga Teacher  

Lindsay is The Salty Pelican’s full time in-house yoga instructor. As a wellness professional and ambassador, she has dedicated over 8 years of her life studying emotional wellbeing in the field of yoga. She is a licensed yoga teacher from the UK and has developed an innovative program for our guests incorporating meditation, pranayama, Hatha flow & Yin yoga styles. Lindsay focus is on alignment, assisting guests individually whilst sharing the greater lessons yoga has to offer beyond the poses.

“  Through my own practice, I have transformed old biases into new perspectives. Each time I step on to the mat, I afford myself time and space. It is this sense of moment that I try to share. During classes, I interweave yogic philosophy, and encourage its principles for others to take away. Each class offers something unique, with grounded deep breath work to journey into the present moment. I structure my classes to challenge while offering a time to reflect. I tailor classes to meet the needs of the students, wherever they may be in their individual journey     


    Jessica - General Manager

Role at The Salty Pelican... I am Jessica from Finland, and Im an integral part of The Salty Pelican team, located in Ericeira, Portugal. As the general manager, I've played a pivotal role in organizing and overseeing various aspects of our yoga and surf retreat. 

“ It is important to me to foster a community where everyone feels welcome and accepted, regardless of where they are in life. The Salty Pelican serves as a home away from home where guests can connect with themselves and others. I am dedicated to ensuring that their experience is as enjoyable as possible 

Secret super powers... My love affair with Excel spreadsheets! But beyond that, my superpower lies in my ability to adapt to diverse situations and connect with people from all walks of life.

Favourite place in the world ... Choosing just one is tough! I believe there's a perfect moment and location for every stage in life. However, I'm drawn to the sea and sun, so living between Europe and Bali is an absolute dream come true.

Craziest experience...  Life itself is a rollercoaster of adventures and misadventures! From thrilling escapades to surreal moments that seem straight out of a movie, each twist and turn has added to a story worth sharing.
