Overview

This wonderful yoga retreat is specially designed for you to discover and enjoy the wonders of practicing yoga and combining it with amazing surf lessons in one of the most famous surf breaks in Portugal: Supertubos waves!

Surf and yoga are the perfect combination to have fun and to be in connection with your body and mind. We offer a comfortable, cosy, friendly place, where you can sleep listening to the waves, hangout with friends, or watch amazing sunsets after surfing.

Program Description

Each day we begin with a nourishing healthy breakfast loving hand prepared in our guesthouse, followed by a surf lesson with our amazing and experienced surf coaches. We take you to the best spots, whether it’s the famous Supertubos wave or the beautiful nearby Baleal bay, we will ensure you get the best surfing experience no matter whether you’re a complete beginner or advanced surfer. We cater for all levels and like to keep our classes small and intimate so you can really improve your skills with personalised instruction. It’ll be an experience you won’t forget!

Our yoga classes feature a combination of hatha, vinyasa flow and restorative and yin asanas to help you unwind, develop strength and increase flexibility.
