    Core Subject: Yoga Instructor

    Shaini is the organiser & Yoga teacher at Yogaion retreats.She is an introductory level 2 Iyengar yoga teacher & before that also certified herself in Hatha and Anusara Yoga.

Location

All the  retreats will be held in an amazing house amidst nature on the south west of Portugal right in the middle of the Costa Vicentina natural park. Only a few kilometres away from two amazing wild beaches and the rota vicentina hiking track passes right in front of the house.

There will be twice daily Iyengar  yoga classes, aligning the body, mind & being. We start the morning with a more invigorating class, working through alignment principles connecting the intelligence of the brain with the space of the heart. In the evening after a wonderful day of hiking, there will be a restorative session, calming the senses & relaxing the body.

Mostly organic & seasonal and definitely absolutely delicious.Cooking a smorgasbord of different dishes so that everyone can have a choice of what they enjoy and even people with dietary allergies & intolerances will be in for a treat.

During the retreats the groups will be kept small no more than 8-10 surfing yogis, so that everyone get’s the personal attention they need and the ambience can become one of friends.
