May Yoga/Health Retreat - PortugalWorkshop
11 May 12:00 - 14:00
We MAY have done a little hinting about this one....so yes, here it is, another 4 nights of Health and Yoga in the sunny Algarve at the beginning of May!
Get ready for summer, enjoy all the benefits of Yin and Yang!
We have completely fallen in love with this beautiful idyllic mountain hideaway and want to share it with you all.
It is truly unspoilt and the perfect place to hit that reset button.
Ofcourse the hammocks will be travelling with us for lots of Aerial Yoga classes & workshops. In the mornings and early afternoons, we will be looking at yoga flows that 'fire up your core', power yoga classes and TRX suspension training, yes the straps are coming too. The guys at security are going to be completely puzzled this time :)
We will offer the introduction to a daily Uddiyana Bandha practice with lots of other breathing techniques to help raise or balance out, our energy.
There will be a dynamic yoga workshop, looking at and breaking down some of the fun simpler arm balances, working up to handstand.
Early, late evenings will be dedicated to Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra before bed. Looking at our movements and practice from a different perspective, relaxing the muscles to create space within our joints. Looking at how yin can strengthen the mind and work as the perfect compliment to our yang daily practices.
"Leave behind our ideas of how we should be and return to our true selves, where all lasting healing takes place."
We will start our day with our optional sunrise walk/jog. In the afternoons we will have plenty of time for hanging out in the hammocks or joining in our excursions. Included in the price is our 'yoga on the beach excursion' where we picnic, practice yoga and breathe, gazing into the ocean.
We will also be offering a paddle boarding excursion, where we will paddle board to a little island, practice SUP Yoga, picnic on the island and then be guided back, paddle boarding to the beach. (The local guides are amazing and it's not expensive and perfect even for the complete beginner.) price to be confirmed.
There will also be plenty of time to pop into the beautiful little town of Tavira, lots of gorgeous yoga clothes and local treasures to be found.
Included in the stay, are 3 healthy freshly cooked vegan meals with tea's and water, daily. We have our own chef who is amazing, pouring love and expertise into every dish. The focus on the retreat is for you to come back feeling AMAZING, therefore no alcohol is permitted.
There will be masseuses on hand which we will organise and pay locally.
The accommodation is basic, but we have everything we need. We have a small pool on site and towels are provided. However for yoga we encourage you to bring your own mat, while there are some for us to borrow.
