About This Event

The Surf

We are set in the middle of a world-class surf zone with an exceptional variety of surf spots ranging from powerful reef breaks to mellow beach breaks, catering for different levels and tastes of surfing.
This exceptional surf potential, a vibrant marine ecosystem, an established yet burgeoning surf culture, and a community centered around ocean pursuit and enjoyment are the perfect setting for successful management of coastal resources.
These factors made the global surf community aware of Ericeira`s true grandeur and awarded our 8km stretch of coastline with the prestige World Surfing Reserve title. The first coastal region of it`s kind in Europe and the 3rd in the World, besides other iconic surfing hotspots like Malibu, USA, and Manly Beach, Oz.

The Yoga

Grab this opportunity to let go, to sink into the moment and allow yourself to ride the waves of life. This retreat is all about you! Give yourself the gift of total wellness and relaxation with this 7 day, 6-night retreat set by the sea in Portugal.

This retreat is for everyone and requires no experience in yoga. These days are a possibility for you to get inspired in how to bring yoga, meditation and wellness into your daily life. We wish to set an atmosphere where you are allowed to feel yourself, to accept who you are and to work with your body and mind as it is. 

You do not have to change to live more aligned with yoga as a part of your life. We wish to present you with the ease of moving and breathing and let you feel what beauty it will bring to your life.

This retreat will be an immersion into movement and meditation. You will experience a beautiful mix of Tantra, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Restorative Yoga. We will also explore breathwork and meditation techniques to tap into the stillness within and embrace our bliss nature. 

We are Merete and Tabitha, your retreat guides, and we are eager to share our love for yoga with you to help you build and grow your yoga practice. 

Our intention is to dive into yoga both on an off the mat while supporting you in integrating yoga into your everyday life. We hope that the tools you gain on this retreat will encourage you to nurture yourself and your practice even long after you have returned home. 

When you aren't exploring your body and breath on the mat there will also be plenty of free time for you to relax. Spend time getting to know your fellow retreat participants, enjoy reading a book by the pool or take a stroll along the beaches of Ericeira.

We will be with you every step of the way to help you make the most of your retreat experience. 

This retreat offers you an opportunity, an opportunity to connect with your true essence while checking in with your dreams and desires.  

Surfing is the most blissful experience you can have on this planet, a taste of heaven. - John McCarthy
