    "Highly recommended. Viktor is very professional and a kind person. After I took two yoga lessons and an hour massage, my holiday just couldn't be more relaxing :-)"

  • Review by a traveler

    "My boyfriend and I decided to take a chance and try yoga on stand-up paddleboarding with Here and Now. Viktor was extremely helpful. He collected us from our apartment and took us to a beautiful lake to try out the yoga on the water. It was both relaxing and somewhat challenging, as he guided us through the many yoga sequences on the paddleboards. It was such an unwinding way to exercise and also enjoy the beauty of Ericeira. Even if you have never tried yoga or stand-up paddleboarding or both, we would highly recommend booking this with Viktor. We were delighted we did."

  • Review by Sophie Buergin from Switzerland

    "Viktor, who is a surfer himself, is very professional and found my knots right away. He used a variety of techniques to encourage the muscles to let go and at the same time managed to make me feel relaxed. The room at his authentic Portuguese home spreads a quiet and cozy atmosphere and I felt very comfortable. After the massage, Viktor even advised me with specific yoga poses, which help me prevent sore muscles after everyday surf sessions. Great massage at a very fair price! Can't wait to book another one very soon."
