Celest and I will be spending a month in Portugal leading an intensive teacher training in beautiful Ericeira, a coastal village north of Lisbon, and have decided to open some spots for those of who would like to join us for some yoga practice, sun and fun and not necessarily immerse into a full day teacher training. Apart from the daily morning classes, we will open one PM lecture a week for retreat participants and two late afternoon meditation/pranayama classes. Participation on all of the above is, of course, optional.
In free time there is much to explore and do, surfing being everybody's favorite pass time. Ericeira is home to many beautiful beaches and surf breaks. If you already surf or would like to learn, we can connect you with some of the best surf teachers/schools around.
We will open 5 - 6 spots a week (depending on occupancy), so book soon!
Week 1 - Oct 06th - 13th
Week 2 - Oct 13th - 20th
Week 3 - Oct 20th - 27th
Accommodation & location
We will be staying in B&B located in the centre of Ericeira, a beautiful coastal town about 35 km northwest from Lisbon. The villa is close to beaches, restaurants, and bars but tucked away enough to ensure peace and quiet. Main building, comunal kitchen and the shala (yoga space) are arranged around a beautiful garden.
Rooms are simple but beautiful and for every budget, please see the prices below. Also, please note that some rooms share a bathroom and some are en-suite.
Breakfast and vegan lunch are included in the price. Dinner is not included so you have a chance to enjoy an evening out and explore local cuisine.
