The Yoga and Surfing Holiday is for surfers wanting to get into yoga, for yogis wanting to learn to surf, or for anyone wanting to experience both yoga and surfing (beginners welcome!).
The southwest coast of Portugal offers fantastic waves and our surf school will make sure you'll find the best ones according to your surf level.
Each day will start with a sunrise meditation followed by a Yoga class that is especially designed to gain flexibility, strength and a confident mind for surfing. After breakfast the surf coaches will collect you and take you to one of the local and spectacular surf beaches, which are world-renowned for their excellent waves.
In the break between the surf lessons you'll get a re-energising and tasty vegetarian lunch and at the end of the day, you'll finish off with a gentle yoga class and a delicious dinner.
11:00 Surf lesson
13:00 Lunch at the beach
14:00 Surf lesson (depending on weather, surf, tide etc. The morning lesson could be longer and no afternoon session)
The Yoga Surf Holidays are held at the charming Quinta da Rosa near Salema, close enough to all major surf beaches. You're more than welcome to take some time off surfing, so you can enjoy the beautiful place, relax next to the swimming pool, walk to the local beach (20 min) or just do nothing.
The yoga classes will mostly be practised on the shaded outside deck. If it's too hot or cold, there's a spacious room in the house... or 'yoga on the beach' is always an option.
The house comfortably sleeps 12 people. The 4 spacious rooms are divided into 2 double rooms and 2 shared room (max 4 people in each). Showers and toilets are shared. The shared rooms are females only. The double room can be shared with an other participant (same gender) or with a partner, friend or family member.
Single rooms are not available at Quinta da Rosa itself, but can be booked in the neighbourhood - 1 or 2 rooms are usually reserved for our holidays in local guesthouses, which are 5 to 10 minute walk away.
Arrival time for all Yoga Surf Holidays: Sunday between 3 and 6pm
Departure: Saturday, 10am (after breakfast)
You’ll leave this week with a very healthy and fit and energized body, great knowledge of yoga and guaranteed standing up on the surfboard. The surf school we are working with is called Sagres Natura. They are one of the most experienced surf schools in the area. This is a fun holiday where you will spend lots of time connecting with the sun, surf and yourself.
