About us

Awake Yoga Festival is Algarve´s first Yoga Festival. It is a 5 days gathering of lightbearers, lovers, mystics, truth seakers, yogis and yoginis. It´s a place for everyone who wants to take the first step in to yoga, for experienced practitioners and teachers, for adults and children. We have a rigorous program with many different styles of yoga (Kundalini, Ashtanga, Yin, Nidra, Restorative...) and musicians from all over the world that will be sharing healing music and facilitating mantra singing. We have dance facilitators, meditation teachers and amazing healthy food that supports you on your journey.

We invite you to celebrate live and enjoy yoga, meditation, music and dancing in contact with the beauty of nature at Awakeland Portugal.

Give yourself this time to reboot your system or dedicate some time just for YOU. Change can never come from outside, it happens in you. Let this festival be a door to the new world of peace.

Awakeland is A PLACE WHERE WE GET TOGETHER AND SHARE THE TRUTH OF WHO WE ARE.
