GOLDEN HERITAGE ERICEIRA VILLAS Portugal Yoga Retreat Program

Program

If you want to travel with like-minded people, learn more about yourself and your possibilities, wish to connect with other cultures, or have stress in your life and need to rest and be pampered, this retreat is for you. No matter if you are totally new to the world of yoga or already an experienced yogi or yogini, the loving and professional yoga teacher will always make sure you get the most out of the classes. From beginners to advanced levels, the instructors will make sure you are safe on the mat and will guide you into amazing inner journeys.

Yoga helps strengthen the key physical points to the surfing practice, such as arms, legs, back, and wrists. It minimizes the risk of injuries and improves the recovery time after a surf session. By learning to know and accept your body, you will improve your surf skills and bring your body feeling to a whole other level. By calming down the mind, you will be more focused and more concentrated in the water.

This retreat will include Hatha yoga sessions, an energizing and revitalizing yoga to strengthen and tone your body structure and posture. You will also deepen your Yin yoga to reach the fasciae structures, connective tissues, and joints. During your stay, the yoga classes will have basic and varied sequences.

The chirping of the little birds is the only noise you hear. Nestled among the rolling fields of lush green vegetation, standing the villas of the guesthouse of Surf Riders Surf Camp, overlooking the region of Ericeira. There, the world is still in order.
