Antonio

Antonio was born in Lisbon. He did a teacher training in Hatha yoga in 2000 at the Lusa Yoga Association, and founded the Algés Yoga Center in 2003. He attended several workshops, such as Vedanta Philosophy with Swami Dayananda, Iyengar yoga, and Ashtanga and Dynamic yoga classes. He surfs and practices yoga daily, and his goal is to provide a fantastic experience for the people who share the same things in order to find harmony, enjoy nature, and have a break from the demands of everyday life.

    "In February I did my first Yoga Retreat ever and I am so happy that I chose Wide Ocean Retreat for it! It was an incredible experience, we did yoga twice a day with the amazing Antonio who tried to challenge us in every class, some hiking and meditation at the top of a mountain, stand up paddle in the Mira river and a really interesting cooking class with the super-cook Francisco, who was in charge of making our tummy happy and cooked the most tasty veggie-dishes during the retreat! Also a special mention to our beloved Tiago, with whom we enjoyed a creative workshop in the nature and gave us the most relaxing Ayurveda massages! What else can you ask for? I highly recommend Wide Ocean Retreat to anyone wanting to spend a week in a beautiful scenery surrounded by incredible people!! "

    "Well that was quite a wee holiday. Back from a much needed week’s winter retreat in Portugal... Fed veggie food porn and nightly port by a passionate Portuguese chef with crack of dawn yoga sessions from a gorgeous hearted yogi called Antonio bending me into contortions alongside super fit companions putting me to shame...all in a glorious studio dreamily situated next to horse stables where I then got to trot around on a majestic beast called Sultan (a horse) before beach walks with amazing multi-lingual feisty fun women who then hiked up a mountain with me for sunset meditation having already partaken in poolside creative nature things all topped off with a midnight full moon classical guitar intimate concert and a couple of heavenly Ayurveda massages - courtesy of a man called Jesus..."

    "I know. I may need a holiday to recover. I'd definitely go back there in a flash though. Thank you @WideOceanRetreat - for the photos and the joyous adventure."

    "The highlight of the Yoga Retreat I did in February was definitely the climb to the mountain. The sunset meditation we then did was breathtaking- a moment I will never forget in my life. Everything was topped with incredibly delicious food from Francisco the cook - he definitely spoiled our taste buds!;) "

    "My sister and I stayed at the retreat for three days and it was such an incredible experience. The facilities were very nice, always clean, and had everything we could have possibly needed. The food was so fresh and delicious! We had the chance to surf and ride horses for the first time with the help of some great teachers and we had so much fun! We also trekked part of Rota Vincentina and the views were breathtaking! The yoga studio is so beautiful, it's so quiet and it felt surreal to hear the peaceful nature sounds that surround you as you practice. Antonio made the yoga classes extremely relaxing but still a nice challenge for us, a great balance. We did so much in only three days and we loved all the new experiences. I would highly recommend staying with Antonio, it was really amazing!"

    "The yoga resort was like a secret escape, in the middle of the forest but beautiful and peaceful.  We booked all inclusive, yoga, activities plus all meals - it was an amazing deal for what they offer. They offered a great variety of activities and the bowl of fruit and cereals at breakfast was definitely a highlight! The other retreat participants were friendly and welcoming and we were a fun and fantastic group!"

    "Totally off the beaten track. Partially eco build. Surrounded by forest, birds, and traditional goatherds. The hike and the meditation practice on top of the mountain were unforgettable, the landscapes from up there breath-taking."

    "Me and my friend did a three-day retreat at Surya Lodge. The setting was gorgeous and the accommodation itself beautiful. We enjoyed the yoga and hiking in the morning. Excellent surf lessons with Andre, I managed to stand up for the first time! We got to know interesting and fun people at the retreat. Truly amazing week."

    "Schon die Anfahrt zur Surya Lodge ist ein Erlebnis. Sie liegt wirklich inmitten der Natur und sehr idyllisch. Die Anlage ist sehr schön und gepflegt und wir waren positiv überrascht von Größe und Austattung des Zimmers und des Yoga Raums. Auch der Poolbereich ist wirklich schön. Besonders hervorzuheben sind Lisa & Antonio: Die beiden managen die Retreats und sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten dank ihnen und der anderen Teilnehmer eine unvergessliche Zeit. Besonders gut hat uns das Essen gefallen: vor allem die frischgespressten Säfte waren hervorragend- und das leckere selbst gebackene Brot, das es zum Frühstück gab."
