About This Center

Peace and tranquility in one of the best retreats Portugal has to offer, based 450mtr from the wonderful beach of Meia Praia, surrounded by nature. Yogaion, located on the south coast of Portugal, throughout the year offers a lovely mix of different retreats always combined with Iyengar Yoga run by Shaini Verdon.  The main retreat is the Yoga, Surf & Nourish retreat which contains 3 different packages: Yoga, Surf & Nourish / Yoga & Surf / Yoga & Nourish. But there is also the very  special Women's health Yoga & Surf retreat. The Yoga & Surf during the retreats are an amazing combination of Yoga, Surf & deliciously healthy food. The Yoga & Nourish retreat on the other hand is aimed at awareness, cooking, mindfulness & relaxation. During the Yoga, Surf & Nourish retreats there will be a great mix of Yoga, Surf & a cooking workshop. The Women's health Yoga & Surf retreat is an amazing retreat hosted by a variety of women who all excel in their field, it's for all us women to get back in contact with our most divine cycle. Yogaion only accommodates for small groups of maximum 10 (Surfing) Yogis, making sure everybody gets the personal attention they need. 

Wake up to a beautiful sunrise in Portugal while getting ready for our first Yoga class, breathing in the fresh ocean air. After that either enjoy loads of fun on the beach or pamper yourself with wellness sessions at the retreat. At sunset relax during a restorative Yoga session. And finally, eat yummy and healthy food based on a vegan/vegetarian diet. Pure fulfillment at Yogaion Retreats. Come and join us to feel this amazing experience.

With love,

Shaini Verdon
