Stand Up Paddle Boarding... After breakfast you’ll head down to the beach for your morning SUP lessons. Our SUP school is run by qualified instructors and we welcome all levels - including complete beginners. Your lessons will take place at the beautiful coastline of Cascais, less than 10 minutes walk from The Salty Pelican. Stand up paddle boarding will give you one of the most amazing perspectives of the surrounding beaches and hidden coves in Cascais. Some days we can also organise a sunset paddle tour which is the perfect time to unwind after a long day in the sun.
Yoga... Our 8 day SUP & 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 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.
Sunrise Yang Yoga... Experience revitalizing Yang Yoga sequences at sun rise to give you all the energy and focus you need for the day. Ida our in house yoga instructor will help develop muscular strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, and breathing. Ida 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.
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.
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.
Sunset Awareness Hike ... Every Monday & Thursday afternoon we organise there an awareness hike down to the beautiful national beach of Praia da Ursa. Here we will practice meditation right on the sand with a peaceful sunset, 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.
