Pro-surfer Rochelle Ballard said: "I think that the combination of power and flexibility is briliant as well as the effect it has on your mind". When we are surfing we use certain muscle groups which we can relax again after surfing during the yoga sessions. Yoga also helps to focus your mind. You will master your fears because you can face them with ease and energy.
Yoga combines power, body tension, mobility, flexibility, balance, calmness, peace and a strong mind. Components which we need in the line-up while catching waves.
Only 25-30 minutes by public bus away from Lisbon you can easily discover the city.

This extraordinary mix of nature, surf atmosphere, Portuguese culture and an awesome city next by, will make your holidays spectacular.
