View Dates & Prices

Yoga on this holiday will be led by a qualified yoga teacher from OSLO Health. There will be a total of 8 Yoga Sessions, 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening.

With a year round superb climate, fantastic beaches and dramatic landscapes, the Algarve is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing and reviving yoga retreat.

The quaint and peaceful town of Sagres lies on the most south-westerly tip of the Algarve and will be your home for this 5-night getaway.

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. 

Please ensure you bring your own yoga mat for this holiday.

Trip Itinerary - Day by day

Day 1 - Travel to Portugal

Evening

Travel to Portugal

Upon arrival in Faro, you will be met by our local representative at the airport before being transferred to your hotel in Sagres.

Day 2 – 5 – Yoga & Afternoon at leisure

Morning

Yoga Session

A heat building Vinyasa class, moving with the breath. Starting softly, you will work up into a series of salutations, each including a standing pose or a series of standing poses, eventually coming back down onto the ground for well established Shavasana relaxation. 

Afternoon

At leisure

You will be free every afternoon to explore the town of Sagres and its surroundings. Your local guide will be delighted to suggest places to shop, sightsee or explore to suit your interests. 

Evening

Evening Session

More like a workshop than a ‘general’ yoga class, the evening session will begin with a warm up like the morning class, but will focus on a particular section of the body and move more deeply into that specific theme. For example, the first evening might focus on hips and hip openers working towards a climax posture such as splits, pigeon or reclined virasana and another evening workshop might be based on shoulders and arms, working up towards handstands or pincha mayurasana. As with the morning class, cool down postures and a time to release, relax and revive the body will follow.

Day 6 – Return home

Morning

Return home

Transfer from your hotel to the airport for your flight home, with guide assistance.
