7 Days Prithvi Yoga Retreat and The Great Outdoor To Reconnect With Nature in Ericeira, Portugal

108 House, Urbanizacao Aldeamento Moinhos Do Mar - Rua 2 Lote 8 Joinal, 2655-478 Ericeira, Portugal

Outdoor Experience Yoga Retreat Portugal

The intention of this retreat is for participants to make contact with and really connect to nature.

There will be yoga to bring us a deep sense of grounding and activities that will awaken our awareness of and reconnect us to the nature that surrounds us and of which we are all apart.

Yoga and Prithvi yoga will be complemented with silent walks and outdoor meditations as well as a range of other activities such as surfing, bouldering (rock climbing) and mountain biking.

What is Prithvi yoga?

Prithvi yoga is a classical and traditional yoga based on the sutras of Patanjali and the principles of hatha yoga. What distinguishes Prithvi yoga, however, is the fact that it is practiced out of doors without insulating mats and while wearing clothing made from natural fibers such as cotton. This gives us a direct connection between our bodies and the earth element so as to derive the maximum benefits from a grounding contact with the earth.

The earth element represents solid matter and the structure of the universe. Earth gives form to the human body, and to all of creation. The structure provided by earth is the conduit through which the other elements all flow. All elements are born of ether and contained within earth.

Why practice Prithvi yoga?

We are bioelectrical beings living on an electromagnetic planet. Our bodies operate electrically and all of our cells transmit multiple frequencies that control, among other things, our hearts, our muscles, our immune systems and our nervous systems.

However, industrialization and our increasingly technological lifestyles have caused a build-up of free radicals in our bodies which disrupt the electrical balance of our cells. Grounding activities such as Prithvi yoga allow us to absorb negative electrons from the earth which neutralize these damaging free radicals, bringing us wide-ranging health benefits which include improved sleep, pain management, and stress reduction.

For this retreat, you will need comfortable and natural (non-synthetic) clothing and be ready to get a bit dirty practicing on grass and soil!

The 108 project was born from the intention to provide the teachings of traditional yoga disciplines in a beautiful environment conducive to satisfying our passions.

108 House is located in a peaceful and quiet closed community by the ocean, within walking distance of the stunning coastline of Ericeira. Enjoy and be inspired by the surrounding nature or get lost in Ericeira’s lively and narrow back roads just walking distance from the house.

Relax under the breeze on the terrace at daytime or leave your room door slightly open at night and let yourself lull by the sound of the ocean.

The guesthouse can accommodate up to 15 people in 4 rooms; one independent shared room with a kitchenette accommodates up to 6 people, one smaller shared room accommodates 4 people, one triple room and one suite for 2 people. All the rooms have terraces facing the coastline, town and ocean.

Meals are offered on the covered patio which enjoys an ocean view and, beyond, on the main patio, guests can relax and appreciate the ocean breeze. An open area with a big table is available in the back of the house - an ideal place to share food, drinks, and conversation.
