Ever considered escaping on a relaxing Yoga Holiday? Not really sure what to expect? We asked our Product Manager Danielle and our Yoga expert Sinead from MOONSyoga a couple of questions about TDactive’s Algarve Yoga Holiday, so you can get a good insight into what life on a TDactive Yoga Holiday might be like.
Danielle, why did TDactive Holidays decide to start offering Yoga Holidays?
"At TDactive Holidays we know how important it is to mind yourself and with life getting busier we wanted to offer a holiday experience where people could get away from the noise, which is why a relaxing yoga retreat is the perfect escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. The Algarve is the ideal location to offer for these relaxing escapes – with the sunshine, stunning beaches and quaint towns… it really is the perfect place to unwind!”
Danielle, what do you think makes Sagres so special?
"We have chosen the charming town of Sagres as the base for all our Algarve Yoga Holidays. The landscape around Sagres is wild and rugged and gives way to stretches of beautiful sandy beaches and crashing surf. Between yoga sessions there will be free time to spend at your leisure. Enjoy walks along the coast to the Fortaleza de Sagres, take a surf lesson, rent a bike or simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the unspoilt natural surroundings. Just imagine it… your mornings and evenings are filled with a range of yoga classes led by a qualified yoga teacher from MOONSyoga, while you will have your afternoons free to enjoy local life in this stunning part of Portugal’s Algarve."
Sinead, what did you enjoy most about the 2017 and 2018 Algarve Yoga Holidays?
“There is an instant switch off - because you get up the first morning and stretch - there are no plane aches and you instantly blur the 'real world' out and transport fully into holiday mode!”
Sinead, what are you looking forward to most about returning to the Algarve in September & October 2019?
“The sense of community! People are coming back again from last year. There is loads of time to chill on your own but the smiles and chat at the morning and evening classes were so inclusive and positive. After evening practice, anyone that was traveling alone (and wanted to) usually wandered off for dinner somewhere in Sagres!”
Sinead, what can people expect from our Yoga Holiday with you?
“Escape. Instant relaxation of the body and mind. Lots of downtime to enjoy a delicious breakfast and pool-time but still some dedicated practice time to either develop your practice or start your journey.I weave lots of mindfulness in throughout my yoga teaching so you'll definitely have some self-reflection during the practices/and after. The beauty of this is that you'll have the time later in the day and evening for this headspace, rather than the usual run from yoga class back into our hectic lives!”
What do you enjoy most about being a Yoga Instructor?
“Helping people find whatever they are looking for from their practice, whether it's space, growth, movement, healing, fitness or simply to stretch!”
Sinead from MOONSyoga has practised yoga all around the world, from Vietnam to the Cook Islands, to the USA and everywhere in between, so you know you are in expert hands if you join her on our TDactive Yoga Holiday to the Algarve this September or October.
