Overview

Join this holistic retreat in the natural and organic environment of an Eco-retreat Center.

Algarve is also well known as one of the best places to surf in Portugal and people flock to its shores to catch pristine waves under the golden sun.

Each day you will enjoy two yoga sessions, movement in the morning and restorative in the evening, sandwiched between a day of surfing sessions.

Enjoy sun, waves and excitement at the beach, good food, lush gardens and lazy hammocks back home.

No matter your surfing experience, you will feel safe in the water and well cared for with the Surf School.

Attentive and trustworthy instructors will guide you in your first steps onto a surfboard; if you are well versed in ocean waves, they can help you refine your practice and maybe teach you a few new tricks.

Twice daily yoga practice where asana, meditation and breath are explained slowly and thoroughly, both in moving and still sessions, giving you the perfect chance to establish a solid foundation for future practice.

The retreat package includes -

6 nights accommodation

3 daily organic vegetarian meals

2 daily sessions of yoga and meditation

5 days of surfing

all equipment for yoga and surfing

and additional snacks and teas available at all times.

Massage treatments and bike rentals are also available if you choose.

Instructors

Jenny Jacobsson

Growing up in an internal world where questioning was driving, she became an observer of human behavior, her own and those of her surroundings. She tried to understand why we judge so hard, talk bad about each other to only later pretend that we did not. Why, what was said was not read in the expression of our eyes. She spent most of her early childhood alone, or maybe just lonely, enhancing her role as an observer.She did her first meditation retreat when she was 22 and she understood that she was not alone in her pain, that she was ultimately responsible for her own happiness. Many years later, she has chewed, swallowed and occasionally spit out many teachings and ideas but she is still fascinated by what, why and how we do it and what happens next. Life, is an open ended proposal that just keeps expanding as her awareness grows. Endlessly.

Igor Odriozola

Igor has always been fascinated by big words, Freedom and Goodness specially. What does it mean to be free, what does it mean to be a good person? He now knows that while the answer to those two questions cannot be known, but must be felt, the questioning itself is a powerful force that gives my life meaning and direction. Being able to question life without anxiety opens him to meet the experience with a child’s curiosity and keeps him present.He is forever grateful to all those who are inspiring him to take this journey, teachers and masters from now and before, and to the everyday life heroes that silently put down a stone at a time on the road to love but he has always felt that it was his business to solve the riddle of life. And so he has developed a strong sense of responsibility and self-reliance in his practice and his spiritual path.
