Program

Escape the daily routine and get reacquainted with some much needed "personal time". Discover a new country and chill on a small paradise. Ohana Yoga Retreats' aim is to bring balance and release stress, while rejuvenating and strengthening your body and mind, deepening awareness, leaving you in a space of natural joy and inner freedom.

Yoga is a practice compound of psychophysical and spiritual techniques, which integrates the three existential points of the human being; mind, body, and spirit.

An Integral yoga practice joins several techniques that come from methods and yoga styles, such as Hatha yoga, Vinyasa, Raja yoga, Karma Yoga, Tantra, mantra, among others.

The purpose of this practice is to balance the physical attitudes, muscle tones, and breathing rhythms on one hand and the states of consciousness on the other. So, who is practicing will progressively be in harmony and in a more integral way with their being.

This practice is accessible to everyone, regardless of their age, flexibility, or resistance. If there are physical limitations, Ohana Yoga Retreats has alternative postures. The most important thing is that you have the will, as the body is seen as a way to the mind and spirit. Always with a deep respect for each one’s individual needs; respect for your body above it all!

Retreat location

Praia da Areia Branca is located 65 kilometers distance from Lisbon. Near the best Portuguese surf spots, Praia da Areia Branca is the perfect place for surfers, nature lovers, families, friends, and couples. It has something magical that is difficult to describe by words. You can easily fall in love with this small paradise.

Praia da Areia Branca in Portugal is a small seashore village that has not yet been massively occupied by tourism and where you can have contact with the local population in a calm and safe environment. At Praia da Areia Branca, you have at your disposal several restaurants, bars, and cafe's for different tastes, a minigolf course, a futsal field, and tennis courts.

With beautiful beaches all along the coast, you can say that the beaches nearby have a mystic aura: filled with a great amount of biodiversity and geodiversity, all of them have hidden treasures to be found. The biggest of all is, with no doubts, the perfect sunset that happens over and over again, once per day, and each of them so differently.

Things to do (optional)

Shiatsu massage

The Shiatsu massage is based on the principles of Chinese traditional medicine. It consists of applying pressure to the acupoints, in which the therapist uses fingers, palms, feet, and his or her own weight, without using any oils or creams.

The most important benefits are stimulation of the self-regulatory system of the organism, deep relaxation of body and mind, and the release of energetic tensions and blockages. It will also support the natural and free flow of the vital energy (Qi) and the contact with the body and inner self.

Surfing and stand up paddle

Ripar Surf School is Ohana Yoga Retreats' partner for surfing and SUP lessons. Praia da Areia Branca is located on probably the best surfing coast of Europe, with stretches from Nazaré to Ericeira, in the center of Portugal. Ripar Surf School (Rui founded the surf school in 2001 and managed it for 15 years), offers surfing and SUP lessons for all levels.

The surf school is located 2 minutes walking distance from the beach. It offers all surf equipment that you may need, a dressing and chill out area, and shower. With years of experience, Ripar Surf School has developed superior and unique teaching techniques in order to help improve all levels of surfers from beginner to advanced.

The best surfer is always the one having the most fun!
