Portugal Yoga & Surfing Retreat

About us

Join me in Portugal for a blissed-filled Yoga and Surfing retreat!

Sunshine, water, nature, nourishing food and yoga, the perfect blend of bliss. Our home base for the retreat is located in the picturesque village of Columbeira, 70 KM north of Lisbon, is an oasis where you can relax, recharge and renew your spirit. Nestled in nature, this beautiful villa was especially designed with care and attention for guests with a heart toward a sustainable environment. There’s comfortable single and double rooms available, spacious gardens, and healthy, delicious locally sourced food.

The day begins with an energizing breakfast, a surf lesson and beach time, delicious lunches and dinners prepared with ingredients out of the veggie garden and from the local markets. We will have one night of seafood barbecue and an option for a picnic lunch at the beach after our surf lesson. We offer afternoon or evening yoga daily that will foster a sense of community within the retreat.

Are you ready to explore the ocean? Whether you’re new to surfing or more experienced, we will offer 3 lessons to get you moving with more ease within the water. Certified instructors will make sure you have the best learning experience possible.
