Why Ericeira, Portugal?
Ericeira is a charming fishing village on Portugal’s west coast, known for its azure waves, sandy beaches, and stunning cliffs.
It’s also a World Surfing Reserve, the first in Europe, with a consistent surf quality throughout the year. However, surfing isn’t the only thing Ericeira offers. This scenic village provides a perfect backdrop for those seeking relaxation and a deep connection with nature. Cliff walks you will never forget encompassing natural pools, caves, views of the best surf spots and even posted poetry reflections.
Yoga with a View
Wake up with the sun and participate in our daily morning movement sessions held on our outdoor terrace. Feel the cool sea breeze on your skin as you wake up your body, synchronizing your breath and nervous system with the rhythmic crashing of the waves. Movement sessions will be a daily variety ranging from kundalini, gentle flow, and yin to pair with our active days with a mix of vinyasa and method to balance our more laid back days. All classes are accessible for any level. You can participate in as many or as little movement offerings as you wish. However, retreats are a great way to explore a new modality or style outside of your regular routine.
Mindful Meditation and Breathwork
This retreat also includes optional daily mindfulness meditation/breathwork sessions. Short opportunities will pop-up through out the day. We will meditate at the beach, the buddhist monastery as well as in the ancient castles of Sintra. Consider this retreat a reset, giving yourself time and space to incorporate daily mindfulness practices will allow the presence of the retreat to stay with you long after we depart.
Nutritious, Locally-Sourced Cuisine
Experience the rich Portuguese gastronomy through our nutritious, chef-prepared meals. We are so excited to have private chef, Hannah McKitrick joining us on this trip! Together we will source local, organic ingredients to create a seasonal menu that not only delights the palate but also nourishes the body. Breakfast provided daily by our inn family, with leisurely lunches out, at the beach and by the pool. Come along to the best local markets to select provisions for our cooking class dinner. We will have two dinners in town with the locals and a fine meal out in Sintra.
A Day Trip to Sintra
While relaxation is at the heart of our retreat, we also believe in the rejuvenating power of adventure and exploration. Whether it’s surfing the fantastic waves of Ericeira or walking through the scenic local trails, there are plenty of activities to keep your adventurous spirit engaged. A day trip too the fairytale town of Sintra, with its’ hilltop castles, dewy forests and exotic gardens cap off this special trip.
