6 Day Yoga Retreat in Aljezur, Portugal

Aljezur, Faro, Algarve, Portugal

Inspiring Yoga Retreat in Algarve, Portugal

This week, Prana Casa will share with you some of the yoga philosophy and will deepen your practice and knowledge of some yoga subjects. They will guide you through some longer meditation and pranayama sessions, teach you the importance of yoga Nidra, and much more.

To make sure you will get to see some part of the famous Rota Vicentina trail, which follows the coastline for over 200 kilometers, they will take you for a nature meditation walk and witness the sun setting in the ocean.

Besides all this, you will have enough time for yourself, so you can go to the beach, relax at the saltwater swimming pool, go for a walk and treat yourself with relaxing healing or massage.

After this week, you will feel rejuvenated in your body and more peaceful in your mind. Moreover, you might have learned some new things and have made some beautiful new friends.

You will be staying in a shared double room with shared bathroom or a 4 pers bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The peaceful property is located in an urbanization in the middle of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, on the west coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The entrance to the Rota Vicentina trail, the old fisherman's trail that follows the coastline, is within the only 5-minute walking distance of the accommodation.

The retreat features three bedrooms, of which two doubles (25-meter squares) with a shared bathroom, and one large dorm room (35-meter squares) with an attached bathroom (four sleepers). The house itself has a large garden boasting shady olive trees and an extended herb and vegetable garden. A saltwater swimming pool allows guests to sunbathe and relax while talking with friends and fellow guests. On most days, yoga classes will take place on the wooden yoga deck in the garden, while bad weather sees the class head indoors.

Program

The physical benefits of practicing yoga as a surfer are, for example, improved balance, flexibility, lung capacity, and core strength, and it also decreases the risk of injury. This is why practitioners of both yoga and surfing benefit from the physical and mental enhancements of the combined exercises. Prana Casa has developed a program in which they marry these two lifestyles. You will start your days with an energizing morning yoga practice, after which you enjoy a healthy power breakfast, and prepare for a day of surf and fun on the beach. You will end each day with a restorative yoga practice and a healthy, freshly cooked, vegetarian dinner coupled with some storytelling.

Things to do (optional)

Free activity from your doorstep

Hiking the Rota Vicentina, the fisherman's trail .

Tracking right next to the coastline, the Rota Vicentina follows the trails used by locals to reach the beaches and hot fishing spots. It is a single track along the cliffs with plenty of sand, which can only be explored by foot. Since the accommodation is nested in the Costa Vicentina natural park, Prana Casa recommends you discover some parts of the famous Rota Vicentina.

Visiting Aljezur and surroundings by car or even local bus

The closest town from the accommodation is Aljezur, a beautiful representation of the untouched Algarve. Enjoy beautiful natural landscapes, where donkeys work the land, cowbells tinkle on the plains and some of the best beaches in Portugal await you.

Situated in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, the large natural park that extends along the western coast of the Algarve, Aljezur is a small agricultural town lying on the fertile plains that border the Aljezur river. The hilltop ruins of a 10th Century Moorish castle dominate the historic town centre and afford beautiful panoramic views of cork oak and pine woods, fields sprinkled with wild flowers and the sea in the distance.

The old town spreading down the hillside is a charming mix of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses, with the characteristic colourful trimmings around the windows. The newer part of town was established in the 18th century to relocate the population after the destruction caused by the 1755 earthquake, and lies at a short distance from the hill on the other side of the river. Heading out of town, it is hard to decide what is more appealing, the countryside or the coastline. Other beautiful nearby villages are Carrepateira, Bordeira, Odeceixe or the mountains on Monchique. Let the team of Prana Casa advice you.

Massage

Treat yourself with a massage at Prana Casa, share your wishes and we will find you the right offer.

Horse carriage riding (max five persons):

There really is just one word to describe a carriage ride: relaxing! The calm horse pulling the elegant wooden carriage through our beautiful village. See individual villas with international decor, several garden designs and colourful flowers. It is such a different perspective to glide over two meters above the ground - soundless, if not for the rhythmic and smooth clopping of a horses hooves. Nice to share with your fellow guests!

Surf classes

Surf classes are not included in the price since we don't want to obligate you a minimum amount of surfing days. You can try even just for one day (from 50 EUR), or go for the full week package 5 days (from 200 EUR). In this price board, wetsuit and beach transfer is included.

The classes include transfer, material, three hours instruction from a local surf school who thinks quality is more important than quantity! Everyone gets to stand up on the board!

The Algarve was the last major European surf region to be explored, and is getting very popular. Prana Casa is close to Monte Clerigo and Arrifana beach (three kilometers) bot suitable for all levels.

Horse back riding

Set your spirit free and learn to trust the beautiful nature of a horse.

MTB rental

The southwest has a wide network of mainly unmapped dirt tracks that are great fun to explore on a (mountain) bike, with trips customised for all levels of ability. You can meander through colourful drifts of spring flowers and forests or see the ripening grapes and wheat fields in the autumn. Visit archaeological sites, fantastic beaches, and unspoiled villages as you pedal along some of the quietest roads in Europe. The more adventurous choose to ride a mountain bike as in this part of Portugal, most roads are still unpaved, so you can go on forever and just follow your nose.

Dolphin watching tour

Enjoy a dolphin seeing tour in Lagos. To get there, you will need to use the public transport or rental car
