6 Day SUP Yoga Retreat in Azores, Portugal
About This Event
Prepare to find yourself in the magical lost world of Atlantis. The Azores island archipelago is drop center of the Atlantic ocean off of Portugal and a raw, natural, volcanic Atlantis where the ocean meets the sky.
Your adventure will be lead by our Azorean born native New Yorker and the BodyRoots NYC and BodyRoots Azores founder, JOana Meneses. Combining the best of her european upbringing and 18 year international movement professional skills, JO will have you connecting your Mind & Body to the flow of the ocean and the undeniable energy of the island’s volcanic rock from head to toe to soul.
You decide how your days go down. From daily classes, hikes to the clouds, fresh traditional Azorean cuisine, to plenty of downtime in and around our 4-Star infinity pool/beach front accommodations located in the center of one of UNESCO’s world classified sites, Angra do Heroismo.
"What an amazing experience BodyRoots Azores was. I am relatively new at yoga so I thought this would be a wonderful challenge to try SUP Yoga for the first time. Well everything about this trip was a first. It was a wonderfully organized trip. It was part yoga retreat, met the most magnificent island in the Atlantic and then sprinkled in a little culture and culinary exploration. It was the perfect trip for all ages. I am 50+ and never felt that I was on the wrong trip even though everybody was a bit younger and more experienced than me. BodyRoots was able to adjust for each persons level, which is rare. Everybody was challenged and everybody came home in great shape and full of appreciation for an island nobody has ever heard of." – C.R.
