Nestled in the Portuguese countryside this SUP yoga retreat is set in idyllic surroundings where you can enjoy nature and solitude. This lakeside location will give you a new sense of well being with private and tranquil islands to explore. You will be starting each day with yoga on dry land. Awakening the body and mind with gently energizing pranayama (breathing techniques) and warm up, followed by fluid vinyasa flow, synchronizing breath and movement, with a different theme each day. The yoga practice will be tailored to each individual, with various levels explored within all postures, ensuring that everybody completes the class feeling positive, energized, and excited for the day ahead!
If you are new to SUP then the instructors will be taking you through the basics to give you the skills you need to have fun on the water. For the more experienced SUPer, you will be able to advance your paddle technique and flatwater skills with our years of teaching SUP to the highest level. Once you have warmed up your SUP and yoga skills, you will paddle out to one of the many beautiful islands, and anchor up ready to explore yoga on the water. The SUP yoga practice will always start simply, with time to set intentions for your practice and to appreciate the stunning surroundings. Building on the morning’s theme, the instructors will gradually develop to more complex postures, to enhance your balance, core strength and flexibility, whatever your level. The day’s activities will wind down with a blissful SUP savasana (relaxation) and a peaceful paddle back to the beach.
With 5 years experience teaching SUP from nervous beginners to those who are looking to take on more challenging conditions, Sally is dedicated to help everyone enjoy the water. Originally in mountain biking and not having any water experience prior to SUP, makes her a great instructor with the ability to empathize with others who may not be so confident in the water. Now enjoying SUP surf, down-winding, and longer expedition paddles, she is a great inspiration to others with a similar background.
