"A retreat for everyone"

The retreat, its location and the flexible organization permit everyone to find her /his own rhythm. The city of Porto is really beautiful and there is the time to visit it or to relax at the beach or in a park. The yoga lessons are professionals and effective as well as the surf lessons which can be also really funny. The apartment is clean and nice. Alex is a kind person, reliable and present. A really good experience.

"Amazing well-balanced retreat!"

Alex made us all feel comfortable and welcome. She is not only an excellent and knowledgeable yoga instructor but a real pleasure to be around. Her flexibility allowed each of us to coordinate various activities and get the most out of our visit to Porto! The surf lessons were fun and relaxed enough that everyone felt comfortable. An unforgettable experience!!! Thank you, Alex!

"Best holiday in years"

Alex is the most welcoming, friendly and warm host you can imagine. She dedicates a lot of her time and is excellent for local tips and recommendations. The breakfast is delicious and made with love, accommodation very comfortable, best location. The yoga and surf classes are fantastic, as a beginner they take extra care of you. I have had the greatest time and will come back later this year!

Me gustó todo. Alex es más que una instructora de yoga o una una amiga en Oporto. 100% flexible para que nuestro retiro fuese lo más placentero posible, super amable y agradable...preocupada por nuestra estancia todo el tiempo...cenamos, comimos y salimos con ella... Totalmente muy por encima de nuestras expectativas.. simplemente inmejorable!!

"Perfect! "

I loved my vacation in Porto and I am so thankful that I could spent my time in such a great way. Alex is a lovely host, did manage to arrange everything in such a smooth way that it was easy to feel welcome. I had egnough time to explore the city, the beach and the neighborhood, between the yoga lessons and activities. I even extended my stay because I enjoyed so much :) thanks Alex for everything it was great to meet you and thank you for sharing your time and tips for Porto!

"Experiencia de 10"

Alex ha estado muy pendiente para que no nos faltara nada y estuviéramos cómodas, los horarios se han adaptado a nuestras necesidades, nos ha hecho los transfer a las actividades, nos ha informado con mapas y aconsejado lugares para visitar. Hemos aprendido un montón gracias a sus ajustes y correcciones. Han sido unos días maravillosos y para nosotras es totalmente recomendable.

"Home away from home "

Alex is the most friendly and relaxed host. All week she has taken great care of us without getting in our way. She picked us up from the airport, made us the most lovely breakfast every morning, allowed us to use her house as if it was our own, had the patience to teach us different styles of yoga (in the most beautiful locations, such as at the river and in a park overlooking the skyline of the city) and joined us on the fun surf lessons with her good friend and surf teacher Andre. Everything felt very relaxed. She was even as friendly to share all the good places to go in the city for sightseeing and food. It was a very relaxed and fun week and we feel very blessed to have had our first yoga retraite experience with Alex. We definitely want to go more often! Thank you for everything, Alex!

"Relaxing with nature"

I like the location and the yoga practice and also time to see the city!

Alex is attentive, caring and knowledgable. We never lacked for anything, from the moment she picked us up at the airport til she dropped us off at the train station. The apartment was spacious and clean. SUP yoga, on the river, was an inviting way to connect with self & nature. The entire experience surpassed our expectations. Alex joined us for meals and gave us detailed instructions on where to go in Porto. Many thanks!

"Entspannter Yoga-Urlaub auch für Anfänger"

Alex ist ein wunderbarer Mensch mit einer sehr offenen Art. Sie hat sich in der Woche sehr viel Zeit genommen, um einem Yoga-Anfänger, wie mir ein ganzheitliches Bild zu vermitteln. Auch außerhalb der Yoga-Klassen war sie immer erreichbar, abends mit uns bei lokalen Restaurants essen und hat sehr viele Tipps zu Porto und der Umgebung gegeben, ohne jemals aufdringlich zu sein.

"Feliz experiencia"

La ciudad de Porto es preciosa, con un encanto especial, la comida, el vino ... La acogida de Alex, la instructora, fue inmejorable, además de su gran dominio de yoga y buenas recomendaciones de la ciudad. Atenta y cuidadosa con los alumnos tanto en las clases como en el alojamiento. En definitiva, una gran persona que hace de tu estancia una experiencia aún mejor. Repetiría y lo recomiendo al 100%

"Entspannte Auszeit"

Die Unterkunft war nicht weit von der Stadt und nicht weit vom Wasser - gelegen in einem typisch portugiesischen Viertel ohne Touri-tam-tam.

Alex war super nett und absolut hilfsbereit. Sie hat uns auf den Wanderungen tolle Ecken um Porto gezeigt.

"Immer wieder"

Vom ersten Moment an war ich bei/mit Alex unglaublich entspannt. Nicht zuletzt durch ihre offene Art und ihre vielen, niemals aufdringlichen Zusatzangebote und Tipps wurde diese Reise zum perfekten Urlaub allein - ohne je einsam zu sein. Alex hat ein super Gespür dafür, was in den Yogastunden das richtige ist, nimmt sich Zeit bei individuellen körperlichen Schwierigkeiten und hilft mit viel Spaß auch beim Erreichen persönlicher "Yoga-Ziele" ;-)

Von diesem Urlaub werde ich noch lange etwas haben - danke!!
