The yoga surf holiday is held at the charming Quinta das Pedras near Salema, close enough to all major surf beaches. You are more than welcome to take some time off surfing, so you can enjoy the beautiful place, relax next to the swimming pool, walk to the local beach, or just do nothing.

Situated in the hills of southern Portugal, the house is a perfect spot for a yoga holiday. It boasts a lovely meditation rock garden, a private swimming pool, an outside yoga deck and a number of relaxing and shaded outdoor terraces. The interior and exterior of the villa is breathtaking. The rooms are very spacious with high ceilings, arched windows, and lovely mahogany floors and doors. It is a very charming and modern house that has a classic and vintage style. If possible, the yoga practice will be on the shaded outside deck but some 'yoga on the beach' sessions might be an option.

The house comfortably sleeps 12 people. The four spacious rooms are divided into two double rooms and two shared room (maximum of four people in each). Showers and toilets are shared. The shared room can be mixed gender. The double room can be shared with another participant (same gender) or with a partner, friend, or family member.

Single rooms are not available at Quinta das Pedras itself but can be booked in the neighbourhood as one to two rooms are usually reserved for Yoga Detox Retreats holidays in local guesthouses, which are five- to ten-minute walk away.

Each day will begin with a sunrise meditation followed by a yoga class that is especially designed to gain flexibility, strength, and confidence to set the mind for surfing. After breakfast, the surf coaches will collect you and take you to one of the local and spectacular surf beaches, which are world-renowned for their excellent waves. In the breaks between the surf lessons, you'll get a re-energizing and tasty vegetarian lunch. At the end of the day, you'll finish off with a gentle yoga class and a delicious dinner.

The Algarve is an idyllic setting for yoga and yoga inspired holidays. From the dramatic coast line, the blue Atlantic ocean stretches as far as the eyes can see. From the top, guests become consciousness of the vast natural space around them, the strength of the elements in the region and the overwhelming beauty of one of the most, or perhaps last, secret places in the world.

    "I have just returned from a week in Turkey with Lauren at Yoga Detox Retreats. It was the first time I had done a detox or been on a yoga retreat. It was absolutely excellent. Lauren was the most amazing person. She was an excellent yoga instructor making the classes interesting at all levels and helped me understand the art of meditation and she was incredibly knowledgeable on the detoxing, which was tough but did not seem too difficult at all. She was well informed on nutrition and cleansing and guided us all through the process, highs and lows. It was easy. I have come home feeling energized, happy, and keen to stick to my new regime of regular yoga and eating healthily. I feel very positive. There were lovely guests also at the retreat. I went on my own but felt I had gone with a bunch of old mates! I loved every aspect of Lauren's week at Spectrum, in Turkey. I know I will return to another retreat run by Lauren again, wherever it might be."

  • Review by Hester

    "A few weeks further, I wanted to show that the retreat is still having its effects in my life. I am still doing more yoga than before the retreat. I changed my diet, with a lot more Ayurvedic food (for me, warm, natural, and sweet foods), which really makes me feel better. I use the song of "The River is Flowing" as a lullaby for my daughter when she cannot sleep! And by talking and thinking more about the principles of yoga, I act differently! Thanks again so much for everything! Hopefully, we will meet again some day!"

    "Your yoga is still influencing my life. I start every day with lemon water and a shorter version of breathing exercises and meditation. I am going to class almost every week and sometimes doing some yoga myself at home. I felt very energetic coming home, almost not able to sleep; trying to convince myself of going to bed early, not using up the bank of energy I built up in Portugal."

    "I just wanted to say a big thank you for a great week. It really was special. You are truly inspirational, Lauren. Spending the week with you restored my love of yoga, just what I needed. It also made me realize I have a bit of work to do in some other areas. I am sure we will meet again as I intend to join you in another retreat at some point."

  • Review by Petra

    "This week was wonderful: the way you brought me back to my inner silence, my self-love, at least being in contact with me, myself. Your professional, sensitive, powerful guidance; your inner wisdom; your beauty in every single moment coming through your eyes while looking at us and at the world; your mouth while you were saying something that was never judging, never negative; all your movements; your just being there with us and being you; I appreciated it so much and still do in my inner-self. I thank you, "aus ganzem Herzen," we say here, from the bottom of my heart. I am looking forward to seeing you again."

    "Thank you so, so much for a wonderful week. Thank you for taking me - us - on such a nourishing, beautiful journey. I am so glad I came back a second time. Faralya truly is a special place, which makes it all the harder to adjust to normal life back in a flat, a city, a slightly grey country! But I also really love the way the retreat focuses on diet, yoga, breathing, spirituality, inside and outside, and bonding within the group. I have done pretty well so far in terms of maintaining good habits. There are so many temptations when you are back in (un) civilization! It requires real power of mind. It is an interesting challenge. Thank you for giving me the inspiration and strength to meet that challenge."

    "I just want to thank you from my heart for the most wonderful week, Lauren. It has done me the world of good on so many levels. You are an angel and a true inspiration and I feel blessed to have spent a week with you. I feel a new inner strength and peace. I now really feel everything I need is here. I am more mindful of living in the moment and enjoying it, not wasting time and energy on worrying about things in the past or future. The whole experience was really quite spiritual for me, too."

  • Review by Debs from London, UK

    "I just wanted to let you know how much I am still loving my yoga. I have been practicing nearly every day since I came home! I know at the start of the retreat you said that you loved doing these retreats because you wanted to show people how special yoga was and help enrich their lives, so I wanted to give you feedback and let you know how much it has changed my world. I am so much more in balance and loving my new outlook. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. All in all, the retreat was one of the best things I have done and you were a massive part of that. Thanks!"

    "It was such a wonderful week and a pleasure to meet you all; I had such a fantastic time. Lauren, it was a really wonderful program and everyone has commented on how well I look. Oh, and yesterday and this morning, I was up early and did yoga before work; me getting up early is unheard of, so it is a very positive change."

    "I really want to thank you for one of the best experiences I have had to date. I was not sure what to expect, as I was apprehensive at the start of the week, but it has dramatically changed the way I view my food and the impact it has on my well-being."
