6 Day Surf and Yoga Retreat in West Algarve, Portugal

Hotel Vale Da Telha, Urbanização Vale da Telha, 8670-156 Aljezur, Portugal

Energy of the Ocean Retreat

Surya Alpine Yoga Philosophy goes to the Ocean!

Join us for an inspirational and perhaps life-changing Yoga and Surfing Retreat, a 6-day mystical experience exploring the wild and breathtaking coasts of Algarve.

Surfing gives yogis an external experience of yoga. And yoga gives surfers a leg up when they're on the board. It's obvious that the two disciplines complement each other physically. Both require strength, flexibility, and a lot of balance; attract lovers of beautiful moments in nature; and keep their devotees looking and feeling unusually young, strong, and vibrant.

But yoga and surfing intersect on the mental and spiritual planes, too. They both keep you so present. The presence you develop in a yoga practice serves surfers well during the tedious moments, too, since more time is usually spent waiting and paddling than actually riding a wave. The yogic technique of observing the breath can transform the long lulls between sets of waves into focused meditation.

We are united with the energy of the ocean. Surfing and yoga complement each other because they both hone and tone the fluid body. In yoga, we observe and even move the unseen waves of energy within us, known as prana, or "life force." In surfing, we feel the external wave energy that we're tapping in to during yoga practice. Whether or not you know how to surf, the metaphor is an apt one for leading a yogic life.

Surya Yoga Philosophy has designed the perfect yoga and surfing retreat to combine the two activities so that you experience endless mutual benefits. Daily yoga classes, morning and evening session,

Join us for a different style of yoga retreat!
