    • Mafalda Sousa

      Mafalda was born in Portugal and started practicing yoga while still an electrical engineering student to help her manage her stress levels and long hour work days. This interest quickly grew into a passion and in 2007 she did her first Vinyasa flow teacher training in San Diego. She quickly started teaching and deepened her training in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Anusara, and Hatha yoga in India, Italy, and England. Always bringing a fun and focused approach to her classes, she teaches yoga the same way she lives it, trying to integrate into her everyday life what she learns on the yoga mat.

    The retreat will take place in a unique location with the best view of the Baleal Island, where you can see the best beaches and surf spots of Peniche. Situated just a few steps from the beach, the house could not have a better location for a holiday of surfing and yoga.
