The retreat is held at a place very dear to Inspiro Yoga's hearts, Casa Paço D’ilhas – a traditional heritage-style (est. 1869) 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 fire place, kitchen, and an honesty bar where you can enjoy a glass of good Portuguese wine or a local beer. Casa Palheiro, Cabana Jardim, 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, guaranteed love at first sight.
In the morning, you wake up your bodies with dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga (synchronising movement and breath) including short meditations and pranayama (breathing exercises). In the afternoons, you nurture your bodies with a blend of Restorative and Yin yoga. All classes are open to all levels, everyone is met where they're at in their practice. There's also a chance to take private classes for an additional charge.
Depending on the weather and the ocean tides, the times may change. The retreat starts with a welcome snack and gathering at 5:00 p.m. on the day of arrival and ends after breakfast at 11:00 a.m. on the date of departure.
