Take this week off to come and immerse yourself in a retreat where rest, rejuvenation, and progressive holistic education are combined to deliver you a journey into yourself. By engaging in a week of self-care while learning fundamental principles of yoga, holistic health, and nutrition, you will be able to implement sustainable changes in your lifestyle, deepen your yoga practice, and learn how to cook delicious plant-based meals.
The venue is the Surf Yoga Guesthouse, a traditional Portuguese home designed to welcome the practice of yoga and surf. Owned by a beautiful Portuguese family that shares their love for the ocean and the yoga mat, they will be taking care of you during this adventurous week.
Surf Yoga Guesthouse has an ocean view and is a walkable distance to the ocean. The guesthouse has five double rooms and one dormitory that fits six people. According to your budget, Swara Yoga School can find what suits you best for the retreat.
The retreat features yoga classes, natural cooking classes, and lectures on holistic nutrition and lifestyle that will help you reset old habits and create a new language for understanding what your body really needs. You also learn how to implement changes in your daily life and design you own health program with the help of holistic coaching techniques.
There will be also free time for you to enjoy any of the eight beaches around the venue, surf lessons, a cultural trip around the Unesco Heritage town of Sintra, and a few other surprises!
The yoga practices are focused on balancing the five elements of the body and the 12 major meridians, a beautiful and powerful approach that opens the body gradually and invites change.
You will learn how to cook according to the seasons, the five elements and most importantly, accordingly to your body condition.
As a way of supporting the week's process, you will have transformation healing sessions, where you will explore what could be holding you back from reaching your optimum well-being in your health, relationships, and life in general. These sessions will provide you with the means to overcome your patterns and behavioral tendencies that not longer serve you.
You will work with sacred healing energy to unlock the body from old programming that you are unconscious of and free the body and mind into a new level of joy! This self-development work is fundamental to any spiritual evolution.
The price of this retreat includes a day trip around the Unesco Heritage town of Sintra.
