Yoga retreat in Ericeira with Nina Vukas
12.10. - 19.10.2019.
We are opening a limited number of spots during our teacher training course in beautiful Ericeira, for all of you who would like to join us for the morning classes and two meditation sessions in the afternoon. The rest of the day is your time to relax, chill by the pool or at the beach, get a massage, explore Ericeira and beyond, learn how to surf or catch some waves if you already do. Please note that the classes on this retreat will be advanced and not suitable for beginners.
Join us in beautiful Ericeira, Portugal for a week of yoga, meditation, relaxation, surf and joy in the present moment. The theme this week is “Chakra Vinyasa” as this will be our primary intention; to go deep into the subtle body and use the understanding of Chakra system to stimulate different energy systems/qualities in our body/mind.
Morning yoga practice will consist of more challenging flows and advanced asana as well as pranayama and other yogic techniques, perfect for yoga teachers and yoga students with a more advanced yoga practice. Some PM will be open for all at an additional cost (payable on site).
Perched atop of 30-metre sandstone cliffs, overlooking the powerful blue Atlantic, and a string of golden sand beaches, lies Ericeira, a fishing town in Lisbon district, about 35 kilometres northwest of Lisbon. The old village is charming and typically Portuguese with whitewashed houses, blue doors and window frames, tiles, chapels and narrow cobbled streets.
Once a peaceful coastal town, Ericeira and the surrounding coast has recently been recognised as the World surfing reserve, transforming it into a surfer's mecca, with over 30 surf spots with a diversity of waves for all levels.
Our venue, Olive3 yoga retreat centre, is conveniently nestled in the old village, within walking distance from the beaches, shops and restaurants, but tucked away enough to allow peace and quiet. You will find it almost hidden behind three olive trees (hence the name!) and Fonte do Cabo, an old fountain dating from 1457. which makes it one of the oldest fountains in Ericeira.
With simple but charming and comfortable rooms, big garden featuring a small pool, large communal kitchen and a beautiful, bright yoga shala, Olive 3 is a perfect place to retreat, relax and recharge.
