    SaltyWay's surf and yoga retreat is a 5-day course from Monday to Friday. Each day is neatly divided into half a day of surfing and surf theory, and half a day of free time. Surf yoga sessions will also take place on two of these days. Since SaltyWay is committed to taking you surfing in the best conditions, the day’s schedule is flexible and will change accordingly. For example, the half-day of surfing and theory may take place in the morning or afternoon depending on the tides and the winds.

    Surf

    SaltyWay's highly qualified, experienced and motivating surf instructor will take you to the surf spots, in the best conditions and with a top of the range equipment. Each surf session is taught in a fun, no-pressure manner and is adapted to the personal needs of each and every guest. The surf session also goes hand in hand with daily theory lessons that cover wave anatomy, beach safety (currents and rips), reading the waves, forecasting and board design. All sessions will be suited to your level and comfort zone.

    Yoga

    An hour and a half yoga session twice a week is designed to complement your surfing. The yoga will not only improve your balance and offer a welcomed relief to sore muscles from all the surfing but a chance to refocus and settle your mind after the adrenaline of the day.

    This retreat includes surf sessions in the best surf spots found in Sintra, Portugal.

    This retreat will take place right in the heart of nature in Colares near Lisbon. Strategically located between Sintra Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, you will be right in the heart of surf and climb action.

      "Julika is a super teacher! Together with my children I surfed for 3 weeks with Julika some years ago, and we had a fantastic time both on and off the water! Julika is really good at seeing each and every person, and their needs, in a way that makes all participants feeling well taken care of. We still miss surfing and Julika!"

      "it was one of the best holidays. I stayed with saltyway for two weeks. I made many new great friends and had an awesome time surfing and climbing. I really like the participatory style of the accomodation where you could cook and live together as flat mates. I am looking forward to come back next year!"

      "Julika is a really good teacher! I felt always secure with her and spent two weeks in her camp in Portugal this year! Moreover, Julika made sure that you are having a good time by offering other activities you can do such as horse riding, massages, climbing, and others. Will be back in 2016!"

      "Ich habe einige Zeit in dem schönen Haus verbracht, die Landschaft, die Strände, die Menschen, das Essen und vor allem die Wellen genießen können. Das Camp ist angenehm übersichtlich, man trift entspannte Menschen, die auch nur surfen und klettern im Sinn haben. Für jede Wind- und Wellenbedingung gibt es den passenden Spot und Portugal ist einfach unglaublich schön. Da es auch klettern im Angebot gibt, konnte ich das erste mal an verschiedenste Arten von Stein in der freien Natur klettern. Auch das Bouldern habe ich ausprobiert - dafür gibt es unzählige Spots, verschiedenster Schwierigkeitsstufen. Ich habe schon viel Erfahrung mit Surflehrern gemacht, sowohl Julika (Surfen), als auch Joao (Klettern) und Masha (Yoga) sind unglaublich tolle Menschen und haben mir sehr viel Sicherheit gegeben. Somit ging es immer weiter, höher, steiler, geiler! Ich bin bald wieder da, denn ich vermisse es."

      "SaltyWay!!! Das Surf-, Kletter- und Yogacamp liegt zwischen Atlantik und dem Naturpark Sintra-Cascais und bietet eine schöne Kulisse für vielfältige Sporterfahrungen. Die Küste um Cascais ermöglicht, dank verschiedener Küstenorientierungen, eine niveaugerechte Anpassung an Wind, Wellen und Strömungen. Die Kurse sind professionell angeleitet und sorgen für schnellen Lernerfolg. Die Vielzahl an Boulder- bzw. Sportklettersektoren um das Camp sorgen für konstante und ebenfalls, an die Gruppe angepasste, Bedingungen."

      "Nach gemütlichem Frühstück im Camp geht es also auf ins Abenteuer. Ob Wasser oder Fels, das Team sorgt für eine lockere Urlaubs- und Lernatmosphäre - das anschließende Yoga hilft bei der Erholung und ist bei toller Kulisse auch einfach nur schön. Gekocht wird im Camp, jeder darf ein bisschen anpacken und Ideen einbringen...Zusammensitzen im Garten oder im Haus gehören ebenfalls dazu, der vergangene Tag muss ja erzählt werden :) Die Zeit im Saltyway bleibt definitiv als schöne Erinnerung: zum Einen der Sport in freier Natur und andererseits der Lifestyle im Team! Surf on!"
