    Lemon Tree is a charming Portuguese house by the beach perfect for everyone who is looking for a nice, friendly, and homey place to spend a vacation. Whether you are looking for an adventurous surfing or a relaxing beach holiday alone, with friends or family, your Portuguese hosts Cristina and Nuno will make you feel at home at once.

    Lemon Tree is located within a three minute walking distance to the beach. The house is a colorfully decorated, restored Portuguese home and offers everything you need for a great vacation including six single and shared rooms, five bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, two living rooms, plenty of outdoor areas to relax in a quiet atmosphere, and a garden with fresh fruits and vegetables available for you.

    Hatha yoga was born from Tantric philosophy, which is based on stimulation and consciousness of all the human physical parts trough body techniques, breathing, and concentration. Being a very interesting ally of all sports because of its characteristics, yoga is perfectly combined with surf due to its energetic practices, giving more concentration, balance, breathing control, and consciousness of the body. During this retreat, you will also do other techniques, such as mudra, Kriya, and mantra, so you will get the whole experience of this ancient philosophy.

    Because surf is very demanding, in the beginning or at the end of each session, you will have the opportunity to stretch and relax through a Hatha yoga session which is extremely adaptable to all levels of experience. This means that you can have more energizing practices to start the day, and more relaxing and meditative ones as the evening approaches.

    Surfing is an exhausting activity. If you don’t practice any regular sport, Ripar Surf School strongly recommends that you make a physical preparation before your surfing holiday. You can attend a gym, swimming pool, or some other sport activity that you enjoy. After this holiday, you’ll go home and start immediately changing your routine for a better lifestyle.


    Upon your arrival, Ripar Surf School will pick you up from the airport and drive you to the Lemon Tree. It is a 50 minutes’ drive, mostly by highway and on request.

    At the Lemon Tree, you will have a welcome dinner with the house host, surf instructor, and yoga instructor.

    You will begin each day with breakfast, followed by a short walk to the beach where you will have your first yoga lesson of the day at 09:00. Depending on the weather condition and groups preferences, the lesson can be at the beach or at the surf school deck. The session last for about one hour and 30 minutes one hour 30 minutes.

    After a short break, you will start the surf lesson that takes about two hours. Depending on weather and ocean conditions, the surf class can be at Ripar Surf School’s beach or at the best spot around suitable for surfers’ experience. It should take no more than a 10 minutes’ drive to reach the surf spot.

    Between the surf lessons, you are welcome to have lunch at one of the local bars or restaurants at the beach.

    You will be transferred back to the surf school complex at 16:00 or 17:00, where you will have your second yoga lesson of the day. It will also take about one hour 30 minutes.
