Amazing Retreat!

Great place, great yoga, great food! Yogaion was my very first Yoga retreat and I can only recommend it!

The house was beautiful in the middle of nature and the food made with love from Shivani was just amaziiiing. Shaini is a great professional and passionate about Iryengar Yoga. She pays a lot of attention to each one of the group during the classes.

Besides of this, all activities are very Nice and qualitative. I felt a great energy coming back home!

Thank you so much Shaini, Shivani and Liz!!

I'll definately come back one day!

    Shaini Verdon

    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.


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 splendid day of surf, there will be a restorative session, calming the senses & relaxing the body.

Based on a healthy, nourishing diet. 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.
