8 Days Kohola Surf and Yoga Camp in Peniche, Portugal

Surf and Yoga Retreat Portugal

It is well-known fact that Peniche peninsula and it’s surroundings are the best stretch of the coast for surfing in Portugal, and also among the best on the entire Atlantic coast of Europe. Because of its location in the center of Portugal, this small town is easily accessible, but its surroundings are still full of hidden places to relax on the unspoiled sandy beaches which are scattered all around it. After the morning adrenaline rush caused by catching some nice waves, sunset yoga and relaxation is something that should not be missed in the afternoon.

Yoga as an ancient science of healthy living perfectly fits into the surf lifestyle. As a special way of balancing the body, mind, and emotion, it helps you with learning surfing as well as any other active sport. By exercising strength, flexibility, breathing, balance and their mutual combinations, you will progress faster in surfing and enjoy more when catching your first green waves.

Kohola Surf Yoga Retreat in Portugal Program

Yoga is held in a yoga centre next to the beautiful beach of Baleal, where surf school is also held. The yoga center is beside the coast, and wooden floors, ocean views and lots of natural light make it an amazing place to practice and relax.

In Surf&Yoga weeks yoga will be joined with surf school to help you to take the first steps on the waves and allow you a better progress. The combination is conceived as a morning surf school with yoga sessions in the afternoon. Yoga classes take place in the afternoon after the surf school and a couple of hours of break.

The Surf&Yoga Camp is intended for anyone who wants to complement surfing with additional activity and to improve breathing technique, flexibility, and balance, which will also have a positive impact on surfing. More surfers are dealing with yoga every season, regardless of age and gender, due to its positive effects on the body. Everyone is welcome to join us, whether you are already yoga enthusiast or if you are a complete beginner.

We practice different types of yoga:

Hatha - the most commonly practiced type of yoga that contributes to the balance of body and spirit. There is nearly 200 Hatha yoga poses with hundreds of variations that stimulate circulation, spine flexibility, body stretching, and also stimulate balance and stability.

Ashtanga - is a Sanskrit name for "eight branches or components". It refers to eight degrees of internal purification: yama (ethics), niyama (self-learning and discipline), asan (attitude), pranayama (breathing control), pratyahara (sensory control), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation), Samadhi (unity with the divine).

Yin - is a slower style of yoga, which retains a certain position for a longer time. For beginners, it can be from 45 seconds to two minutes while more advanced students remain in a single position for five or more minutes. Vinyasa - in translation it means breathing with movement. It is a dynamic, creative and challenging type of yoga.
