The house is set in a Portuguese quinta, completely restored in a barefoot luxurious way. The quinta is very cozy - you can walk from one room to the next. The en-suite bedrooms all have their own privacy; from here, going through a hallway very elegantly decorated with Asian artifacts, you arrive at the kitchen where all the great meals will be prepared and laughter will be shared. Then, going through another door, you enter the yoga room, with matte marble stone laid out over the floor and the stunning views of the ocean. The house is the most amazing place to host a retreat, an escape away from the crowds, a place to get centered again, to come home. All the en-suite rooms are very simple but wonderful. Each room has its own terrace overlooking the ocean.
During this surf and yoga holiday, you will enjoy twice daily Iyengar-based yoga classes, aligning the body, mind, and being. You will start the morning with a more invigorating class, working through alignment principles connecting the intelligence of the brain with the space of the heart. In the evening, after a splendid day of surf, there will be a Restorative session, calming the senses and relaxing the body. Surfing will give you a chance to connect with the ocean and see some of the most beautiful beaches around.

Shaini was able to make her dream come true at the Southwest coast of the Algarve, Portugal because of her passions for yoga, surf and healthy nutrition. Combining all of these is the ultimate lifestyle for her. She tries using these passions to deeply connect with the beautiful nature around her and within her. Her teaching is based on proper alignment, verbal, and precise hands-on adjustments and bringing inner awareness into her student’s practice. She creates a warm, safe, and loving space, so that yoga becomes a spiritual practice and connection for each of her students.
The yoga and surf retreat will be held in the most beautiful, natural settings of southwest Portugal. The secluded retreat house is set amidst the Costa Vicentina coastal national park, surrounded by cork and pine forests and overlooking the ocean. The beach, with its amazing rock formations, is a 10-minute walk away from the house. This is a place for those who love the outdoors and nature, while also enjoying a retreat in a delightful country house.
