The yoga deck will provide you with soaring views of the surrounding countryside, the perfect space for a carefully developed yoga practice suitable for both experienced yogis and those new to the practice. Whether you prefer a dynamic flow with Vinyasa or a Hatha practice in which you will learn more about controlling the body and the breath, a deep meditative Yin aiming at the energetic body and connective tissues, or an intense challenge with Ashtanga, each day you will have the opportunity to experience new styles and new teachers. Your inner yogi will see its needs met.
All yoga classes will teach you more about pranayama breathing techniques, meditation, shapes or postures, and asanas. Yoga classes will be held daily, in the morning. You will always have the option to intensify your practice, whether you are new to yoga or more advanced with afternoon classes.
You will have plenty of free time to spend either through activities such as taking a surf lesson, riding waves at the marvelous beach of Odeceixe, or hiking one of the many routes of the Rota Vicentina, an awarded network of walking trails in southwest Portugal along the beautiful coastline. You can also relax completely by sunbathing at the beach, strolling around the endearing town of Odeceixe, or treating yourself with a de-stressing treatment from one of the partner therapists.
Ashtanga yoga is a 5,000-yearold set sequence of postures designed to bring incredible strength, flexibility, and endurance to the body and a sense of stillness to the mind. You can learn the fundamentals of Ashtanga yoga, sun salutations, ujjayi breath, energy locks, and Vinyasa. Ashtanga can also invoke positive life transformations off the mat, helping you to live fully with a deep sense of self in your daily life.
Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in the world. It uses asana, postures, and pranayama conscious breathing in combination with mental focus to develop awareness, strength, flexibility, and relaxation. Through proper alignment and mindful actions of the body, Hatha yoga brings balance, strength, and a sense of well-being to the practitioner.
Have your pre-yoga breakfast with some of the home-grown herbal teas, lemon water, coffee, or have fruit or yogurt. Head to the yoga deck, start your day energized and renewed with your daily morning yoga lesson. Each day, different styles will be offered, either Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, or Yin. Spending your free time whenever you want with sunbathing, surfing, strolling, shopping, chilling, getting a massage, or some more yoga.
