Relax & Discover
Join this week to take time to completely relax your body and mind. To rediscover your true self on an inspiring yoga holiday in this wonderful nature reserve Costa Vicentina in the Algarve, Portugal.
Regain your physical and mental strength with dynamic morning yoga practice, relaxing afternoon sessions, guided meditations and evenings and mornings with Noble Silence. Learn to cultivate inner-peace and reconnect with nature in this magical landscape, enjoy delicious healthy organic food and meet like-minded people from all over the world. Of course you will have plenty of time to experience the wonderful nature, beaches, hike, bike, surf, or just read your book in the shade of our orange trees, and enjoy our swimming pool.
What to expect
Morning and afternoon yoga classes from professional, passionate teachers, combined with talks to increase your understanding of Yoga and to understand the functioning of your own body and mind. Heaps of time to discover the wonderful National Park Costa Vicentina while hiking along the cliffs, or to read your book under the orange trees next to the pool in our garden. Book an afternoon surf lesson, meet like-minded people, go for a silent meditation walk. Just breathe and feel the sun on your skin... and feel healthy and energized with delicious wholesome food.
You will be staying in our quiet Yoga Villa, outside the picturesque fisherman village Vila do Bispo, right in the National Park Costa Vicentina and just 3km from the most astonishing unspoiled beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. The yoga villa has 4 double/twin/triple rooms (all with private bathroom), a comfortable living and dining room, rooftop terraces, a large swimming pool, and a 50 m2 wooden yoga deck under the orange trees in our garden. From the backyard you walk straight into the National Park Costa Vicentina where many wonderful trails take you towards the Algarve's most beautiful beaches.
