This yoga holiday is all about enjoying the abundance of nature and life. There are two yoga classes each day, meditation sessions, talks on yoga philosophy, three delicious and healthy meals each day, and still time to relax.
The yoga surf holiday is held at the charming Quinta das Pedras near Salema, close enough to all major surf beaches. You are more than welcome to take some time off surfing, so you can enjoy the beautiful place, relax next to the swimming pool, walk to the local beach, or just do nothing.
Situated in the hills of southern Portugal, the house is a perfect spot for a yoga holiday. It boasts a lovely meditation rock garden, a private swimming pool, an outside yoga deck and a number of relaxing and shaded outdoor terraces. The interior and exterior of the villa is breathtaking. The rooms are very spacious with high ceilings, arched windows, and lovely mahogany floors and doors. It is a very charming and modern house that has a classic and vintage style. If possible, the yoga practice will be on the shaded outside deck but some 'yoga on the beach' sessions might be an option.
The house comfortably sleeps 12 people. The four spacious rooms are divided into two double rooms and two shared room (maximum of four people in each). Showers and toilets are shared. The shared room can be mixed gender. The double room can be shared with another participant (same gender) or with a partner, friend, or family member.
Single rooms are not available at Quinta das Pedras itself but can be booked in the neighbourhood as one to two rooms are usually reserved for Yoga Detox Retreats holidays in local guesthouses, which are five- to ten-minute walk away.
It is Lauren's hope that, in a retreat setting, through the practices of yoga and meditation and through the process of detoxification, others may feel a deep sense of belonging and enter a space of wholeness. Prior to her entry into the world of yoga, therapies, and detox, Lauren worked in the fields of psychology and education for special needs. She is an on-going student of nutrition, yoga, Ayurveda, and in the spiritual tradition of Advaita Vedanta (non-dual yoga philosophy), as well as in the Buddhist meditation technique of Vipassana.
The Algarve is an idyllic setting for yoga and yoga inspired holidays. From the dramatic coast line, the blue Atlantic ocean stretches as far as the eyes can see. From the top, guests become consciousness of the vast natural space around them, the strength of the elements in the region and the overwhelming beauty of one of the most, or perhaps last, secret places in the world.
Lemon water and power drinks are served daily as well as three sumptuous meals created to provide you with an amazing detox diet experience.
