Accommodation

The house is set in a Portuguese quinta, completely restored in a barefoot luxurious way. The quinta is very cozy, walking from one room to the next. The ensuite bedrooms all have their own privacy, from there going through a hallway very elegantly decorated with Asian artifacts you come to the kitchen where all the great meals will be prepared and laughter will be shared. Then through another door to come into the yoga room, with matte marble stone laid out over the floor and yet again the stunning views of the ocean. The most amazing place to host a retreat, an escape away from the crowds, a place to get centered again, to come home. All the ensuite rooms are very simple but wonderful, with each room having their own terrace overlooking the ocean.

Program

There will be two daily Iyengar-based yoga classes, aligning the body, mind, and being. Your day will start with an invigorating morning class, working through alignment principles connecting the intelligence of the brain with the space of the heart. In the evening, after a splendid day of surf, there will be a restorative session, calming the senses and relaxing the body. The surf will give you a chance to connect with the ocean and see some of the most beautiful beaches around. All this will be complimented by a wonderful and inspiring healthy cooking workshop.

  • 07:00 Wake up to the sound of the ocean
  • 07:30 Inspiring yoga class
  • 09:15 Yummy breakfast
  • 11:00 Surf pick-up
  • Surf and lunch at the beach
  • 18:00 Restorative yoga class

Combining all of these is the ultimate lifestyle for her. She tries using these passions to deeply connect with the beautiful nature around her and within her.
