    During this retreat, you will stay at Casa Paço D’ilhas, a traditional heritage-style guest house with all the modern amenities you can wish for. It’s located on a hilltop, overlooking the world renowned surf breaks of Ericeira on one side, and the lush countryside of Santo Isodoro on the other side. Just a 10-minute walk from the nearest beach Ribeira D’ilhas.

    In the main building, there’s a dining area, open fireplace, kitchen, and an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine or a local beer. Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro, and Casa Azores are just a few names of the very unique and charming rooms and small houses at Casa Paço D’ilhas.

    Imagine uneven wooden and stone floors, antique beds and chairs, and other vintage details. This is a place full of soul and history.

    During your stay, you will wake up in one of the beautiful rooms and hear the sound of the ocean. You will then step onto the yoga deck and join a dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga class with simple meditation and breathing techniques in the garden. Enjoy a healthy yummy breakfast buffet with smoothie bowls, juices and fresh fruit in season, local bread and cheese, coffee, and tea. Later, you will get picked up for a surf lesson, treat yourself a massage, chill out by the swimming pool, or soak up the sun at one of the beautiful beaches nearby.

    Some afternoons, you will gather together again for Yin or Restorative yoga. Other days, you might relax on the beach, or you can take some time for yourself to enjoy the surroundings or finally read that book. In the evening, a nourishing vegetarian dinner is served, inspired by what’s in season and Inspiro Yoga’s travels around the world - they promise to make your taste buds dance!

    Watch the sunset or the stars, sit by the fire pit in the garden, have a glass of wine at one of the local wine bars in Ericeira, or listen to some live music. You are free to join the activities as much or as little as you like, depending on whether you feel like being more by yourself or with others. All in all, this is a retreat where you can truly disconnect from your daily life and to-do lists, be surrounded by beautiful nature, make new friends, and have plenty of time to just relax and be.

      "This retreat with Lisa and Naza was filled with so much love, happiness, laughter, and crazy good food! It inspired me in my yoga practice to evolve, and to look inward and to accept what is around me. Under the retreat, I got to understand more techniques to avoid injury and different variations of yoga poses. A place like this, a gathering with lovely people is also a beautiful way to learn more about yourself and others, to get inspired, and to find gratitude."

      "Lisa and Nazareno are a celebration of good vibrations. As teachers, both individually and in tandem, they are all I could wish for in a guided yoga class. They are knowledgeable, and they are all heart, and their warmth and radiance resonate from floor to ceiling, and wall to wall, filling the space with gentle waves of clarity. If you wish to immerse yourself in a yoga experience which boomerangs in an avalanche of positivity, taking a retreat with Lisa and Nazareno is a no-brainer. They make the practice of yoga and the teaching of that practice, something truly special."

      "My time at Shambala, in the verdant nature of Sweden, led by Lisa and Naza was the pause that refreshes the grand escape from the busyness of my daily world, a guided journey to my mat, to my breath and deep within. Lisa and Naza are gifted spiritual individuals whose talents and skill sets complement each other yielding a peace-centred yet challenging workshop experience, abundant with possibilities for growth, within and without. Keep doing what you are doing Lisa and Naza. It appears you have found your sacred path."

Lisa fills her classes with heart, never losing her gorgeous personality throughout the class. She makes you feel guided yet leaves space for your own transformation. A true blessing having Lisa in the world of yoga teachers! Gratitude and thank you for great classes, Lisa!"

      "Lisa guides her students with the most care during the classes, she makes you feel confident and happy. Always with a smile on her face, serenity would be the word to describe her. She works well explaining for beginners, like myself, and has a natural wisdom and strength you can feel very easily. Not strict, but disciplined in her practice, her gentle flow classes push you to have a great start of the day!."

      "I came to Ubud in April in 2013, I had just begun yoga, and I have been very happy to meet Lisa as yoga teacher. I stayed 1 month there and was able to practice yoga almost everyday. She is strong, compassionate, precise, very friendly, and so spiritual. I really enjoyed each of her lessons, and made a lot of improvements thanks to her clever adjustments. I strongly recommend her!"
