What makes your heart sing? What sets your soul on fire?  In our busy lives sometimes we need  time to decompress,  time to relax and let our dreams unfold. In German there is a saying  "Seelen Baumeln Lassen" meaning literally to let your soul swing. To take the time and enjoy the moment,  to smile and breathe. Join me next summer for a magical experience in Portugal.

What to expect

A few of my personal favorite things... A dive into traditional Yoga practices combined with plenty on time to chill, relax and create your own unique experience.

On the outskirts of Ericeira, the retreat center is situated on a stunning hilltop, overlooking Atlantic coast surf breaks and beaches.

Enjoy a rustic hideaway, fresh ocean air, lush gardens, yoga, sunsets , moonlight and of course delicious food.

It is a 5 min drive or 30 min scenic walk  to the closest beach.. Praia de Ribeira d'Ilhas 

And..only a short drive to many famous surf breaks and world famous Surfing reserve of Ericeira

It is one hour from Lisbon by car.

More about the Yoga....

The Yoga practices will be suitable for all levels. Mornings will be a nice strong, slow flow. The early evening classes will be variable depending on the group (and the energy level of the group). 

If you are new to Pranayama and/or Meditation this might be the perfect place to start.

If you are an absolute Yoga beginner (never done Yoga before) you will probably find the classes  quite challenging. If this is the case, write to me and we can set up a few classes to help you prepare so it is more enjoyable. (In person or online)

In your registration (if I don´t know you personally) please include a brief description of your Yoga experience (Asana/Meditation/Pranayama) , and any injuries or conditions that may affect your practice.

The retreat center has both indoor and outdoor Yoga spaces. Equipment is available including mats, but of course if you have a travel mat it is always nice to bring your own.

This year the lessons will be taught mostly in English.

And about the food....

The food is wholesome, homemade, unique, locally sourced and organic where possible.  Most important, it is made with love, passion and dedication. The menu will be predominantly vegetarian.

Vegan and specific dietary requests are available when organized ahead of the retreat. Please make any requests on the registration form.
