Lisbon has been recognized in international travel magazines as one of the best places to visit in Europe! In combination with a daily yoga practice in a special private studio, this will be one unforgettable luxury, wellness vacation! The gorgeous city location takes place in the heart of Lisbon, Alfama which is steps away from the Cathedral and the São Jorge Castle.
You will be staying at a chic, boutique hotel in the heart of Alfama. It is considered by wallpaper® magazine as one of the "48 new world's best urban hotels in 2014."
You will love the way the hotel makes you feel right at home with a variety of books to borrow in the living room, plus warm and soothing tones in each room with high-quality linens, natural wood floors, and polished cement bathrooms stocked with Portuguese bath products. Post-afternoon yoga, grab a glass of wine on the terrace and enjoy sweeping views of the city and Tagus River. There will be both single rooms and rooms with twin beds for those preferring to share accommodations.
Enjoy twice daily invigorating Ashtanga flow and Power yoga sessions, each runs for 75 to 90 minutes, in a special studio walking distance from the hotel. Your host and instructor, Shari, will guide you through daily strengthening and invigorating Vinyasa and core lessons in the morning and late afternoon.
All of Sole Yoga Holidays' yoga retreats are open to all-levels, but some yoga experience is recommended to fully enjoy the practice. All equipment is included as well so you have more room in your luggage for treasures!
The first activity is a welcome tapas at 7:30 pm. On departure day, you will have breakfast together on June 8, followed by check-out.
There are three wonderful excursions included in your luxury urban retreat. You will have a private walking tour of Alfama, a labyrinth of narrow streets rich with stories of disasters, invaders, poets, musicians, and artists. Reward yourself with the views of the city from spectacular terraces along the way.
Explore the exquisite and mystical town of Sintra. This incredible location is filled with fairytale palaces and castles and heavenly gardens. You will spend a half-day tour both walking and driving to ensure we see as much of this gorgeous UNESCO world heritage site as possible.
Learn all about the delicious world of Portuguese food and wine on a special tasting in a cozy and rustic wine house in the historic quarter of Lisbon. The evening includes generous portions of the best charcuterie, wood oven-baked bread, house cured olives, select olive oils, fruit preserves and boutique-handmade wines of Portugal. Experts will guide and help you understand the wine regions of Portugal as well as how the Portuguese influenced winemaking throughout the world.
Shari discovered the positive effects of yoga over 15 years ago in California. Her journey included numerous disciplines, but it wasn't until Ashtanga that she found her true passion and was certified in 2010 in Italy. Shari enjoys teaching a vigorous, playful, and challenging Ashtanga flow class. She hopes through her teaching she can inspire others with the grace and love that she has found. Shari has been leading yoga retreats and holidays for over two years in amazing locations from Belize to India, to Morocco, and all over her adopted and gorgeous country, Italy.
