The Karma Surf Retreat provides exclusive surf & yoga holidays in Portugal near Lisbon - this week with special guest and Yoga teacher Katja Thomsen leading through the Yoga classes.
You will be accommodated in a comfortable villa with pool & sea view in double rooms, some of them with private bathroom and terrace.
The villa is situated in a picturesque mountain village in a quiet area on the southern slopes of the Serra da Sintra, right next to a stunning nature reserve.
The participants will receive a biological breakfast, healthy packed lunch and a welcome BBQ. Supermarkets and restaurants are within walking distance in town.
Daily yoga and surf lessons ensure an active holiday.
In the morning, your day begins with a yoga session to wake up and prepare for the surfing lessons.
After breakfast, the surf instructors will pick you up and bring you to the best surfing beaches of the region. The courses are taught in small groups (<10), each of you will get lots of attention. Thanks to video analysis you will also have a fast learning success.
Between the 2 surf sessions you will have a short break at the beach and fuel up your energy enjoying the packed lunch. After the second session you will be transferred back to the villa.
In the evening a second hour of yoga helps you to speed up the recovery process and help you to relax. Then you can spend the evening relaxing and prepare your favorite dish together to enjoy it at the terrace watching the sun plunge into to ocean. You can also head out to explore the mystical forest of the Serra da Sintra or enjoy one of the numerous activities offered (mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, etc.). Of course you can also enjoy the cultural and culinary side fo Lisbon, where you also won't miss shopping opportunities and last but not least a vivid nightlife - just in case you still are full of energy.
For families, we provide child care to help Mom and Dad to relax and enjoy their daily surfing and/or yoga, We can also offer a private apartment or house, to those who would like to have a bit more privacy and their own kitchen.
