(No availability) 6 Days La Practica Vinyasa Flow Immersion and Retreat in Portugal

Casa Paço D'Ilhas, Estr. Da Junceira Paço D'Ilhas, 2640-825, Portugal

Vinyasa Flow Yoga Immersion

Join Vinyasa flow teacher duo, Lisa and Nazareno, for a Vinyasa flow immersion in Ericeira on the west coast of Portugal. Do you like the idea of spending time with a bunch of Vinyasa flow lovers from all over the world, as a community, sharing the dedication for the practice? How about waking up to the sound of birds and waves, knowing you’ll not only take good care of yourself through the practice but also through nourishing food, mind-blowing nature, and fresh air? Maybe you’re someone longing to deepen your practice but do not necessarily want to take a teacher training? Or maybe you’re a yoga teacher who longs to take your teacher's hat off, reconnecting to your own practice and just be a student for a moment? Or you’re simply someone who loves to practice but find that 60-75 minutes' studio classes are too short and you’re now longing to take your practice to the next level in a retreat format.

Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro, and Casa Acores are just a few names of the unique charming rooms at Casa Paço D’Ilhas Guesthouse. Some of them are little houses located in the garden and some are located in the main building. There are double, triple, and twin rooms - all with a very unique character. Imagine wooden and stone floors, antique beds, and vintage details. This place is full of soul and history.

The main building has a dining area with an open fireplace, a chillout area, and a veranda that is perfect for book-reading or for sipping a glass of local vino verde. Outside, in the garden is where your yoga shala is located. The garden also has two outdoor yoga decks / terraces (you might practice some sessions here if the weather allows), two large swimming pools, a veggie garden, plenty of chillout areas, and a fire pit.

Room options

Twin / double / triple / quadruple rooms available - let Inspiro Yoga know your preference and they’ll do their best to accommodate you. Single room available upon request for an additional cost.

Program

This immersion’s for those who already have a Vinyasa flow practice, not for beginners. With that said, there will be many different levels and Inspiro Yoga will make sure everyone’s met where they're at in their practice - always offering many options and modifications.

You start each day with a two-hour dynamic Vinyasa flow practice, moving through the whole body. Each class will have a different theme / focus and includes pranayama and meditation. The classes are physically demanding, so get ready to move, breathe, and sometimes challenge yourself. You’ll have the chance to request poses you’d like to work on during the week.

In the afternoon, you come together again for deep stretching Yin yoga, pranayama, meditation, and relaxation. On one of the evenings, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a soothing sound healing session. Throughout the immersion, Inspiro Yoga will also offer two yoga workshops, allowing you to go deeper into asanas, philosophy, and have time for journaling and discussions.

Check in / arrival day

Check in at Casa Paco D’ilhas is at 4 p.m. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your bags and either chill by the pool, take a dip in the pool, or maybe enjoy a walk to beach Ribeira D’ilhas (approximately 10 minutes). The immersion starts at 5 p.m. You’ll gather either in the garden or in the yoga shala for a welcome snack and introduction, followed by a grounding flow class and dinner.

Check out / departure day

The immersion ends after your morning yoga class (this class will be 90 minutes) and breakfast on the last day of the retreat. Check out is at 11 a.m.

Retreat location

For this Vinyasa immersion, Inspiro Yoga is returning once again - for the fourth year in a row - to the charming Casa Paço D’Ilhas Guesthouse, a place that feels very much like home to them. Not only because they have organized more than a handful of international yoga retreats here since 2016, but because they’ve got to know owners Jelle and Justin very well and know they can count on them to give excellent service and food.

Casa Paco D’ilhas is located on a hilltop overlooking the world-renowned surf breaks of Ericeira, a small fisherman’s village, which over the last few years has become a world-renowned surf destination. Ericeira is located one less than an hour's drive north of Lisbon.

The nearest beach is called Praia de Ribeira D’ilhas and is only a 10-minute walk away from Casa Paco D’ilhas. Apart from this beach, there are another 10 stunning beaches nearby. Ericeira village is about seven minutes' drive and a 40-minute walk from the guesthouse.

Distances

  • Praia de Ribeira D’ilhas beach - 10 minutes' walk
  • Ericeira village - 7 minutes' drive / 40 minutes' walk

Food

Inspiro Yoga loves both preparing and eating healthy, wholesome and beautifully served food. At this immersion, you'll get to savor colorful and nourishing food based on what’s in season (organic where possible) in Portugal at the time of the retreat. The kitchen team at Casa Paco D’ilhas is absolutely amazing - Inspiro Yoga knows you’ll love their food!

Apart from the standard continental breakfast at Casa Paco D’ilhas, you can expect colorful smoothie bowls, overnight oats, homemade granola, loads toppings (roasted nuts, nut butter, superfoods, and more), and fresh fruit. Enjoy a freshly squeezed juice and herbal tea.

The lunch is light and refreshing, usually a soup or salad, to be enjoyed by the pool or on the veranda. Dinners are abundant and flavorful fusion dishes inspired by all Inspiro Yoga's combined travels around the world. On the last evening, they organize a veggie barbecue in the garden (fresh fish will be available to those who wish), and live music to top it up!

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS).

As Ericeira and the venue are located only one hour north of Lisbon and its airport, it’s quick and relatively cheap to get to Casa Paco D’ilhas, with several different options available. You can rent a car, which is a great option if you’d like to explore the surroundings during the week.

Arrival by bus

You can take the local bus from Campo Grande Bus station in Lisbon (about seven minutes' taxi drive from the airport) to Ericeira bus station, and from there a taxi to Casa Paco D’ilhas.

Arrival by taxi

The last option is that you take a taxi or an Uber all the way (around 60 EUR) either alone, or share it with other people coming for this immersion. If you’d like to share the ride from the airport or Lisbon city center, let Inspiro Yoga know and they'll connect you.

Grab it just outside the arrival hall. Sometimes the lines can be long, so if you’d like less hassle, you are recommended to get in touch with Joao and Ricardo, two local taxi drivers running a little taxi company in Ericeira.
