ENJOY EXCLUSIVE LUXURY LIVING

Waking up with the sound and the view of the ocean – This dream comes true at the One Life boutique villa. Just outside the charming fishermen’s village Burgau in the south Algarve, Portugal, you find the villa within 5 minutes walking distance from the idyllic white sanded beach ‘Cabanas Velhas’. The villa has a lot to offer. Relax at the pool, enjoy the ocean view and go for a walk on the beach down the road. Algarve’s beautiful beaches are waiting for you to explore them. To bring a day full of surf and yoga to a great end, meet your new friends in the cosy living room.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Each day will begin with a peaceful guided morning meditation session, where you will learn a variety of techniques to help you find stillness and connect with your true self.

The retreat is led by Nadine, a seasoned Bikram Yoga instructor with over 6 years of teaching experience, who will guide you through the Bikram sequence in a daily Yoga class in or outdoors, where you will gain a deeper understanding of your body and mind.

Brunch is served after the class, followed by time to go surfing or hiking along the breathtaking coast of the Algarve. You can also stay in the villa and unwind with a treatment or enjoy the pool or sauna.

Relax, rejuvenate and indulge your senses with an array of activities and offerings throughout the day. In the afternoon, we have a surprise in store for you with a different workshop daily, such as laughter yoga, face yoga, authentic relating, ecstatic dance and many more. Evening meals will be delicious, mainly vegetarian options and the perfect end to the day.

During the week, we will hold Posture Clinics where you will get personal adjustments and guidance on acquiring greater depth in your practice. Here, you can get all your questions answered, too!

As a Professional Life Coach, Nadine will also offer two Coaching Workshops (one to Reflect on 2023 and one to Design Your 2024) to help you transform your challenges, move towards your dreams, and learn more about yourself.

30th December - 6th January 2024

Is this retreat for me if I never practised Yoga before?

Yes, this retreat is for you! No matter if you ever practised Yoga before or if you are a complete beginner. Bikram Yoga is a Beginner Yoga style suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners. The set sequence allows for a consistent practice and the heat and humidity of the room help to increase flexibility and deepen the practice, which makes the postures more accessible to beginners while also providing a challenging workout for advanced practitioners.

Additionally, the heat and humidity can also help to detoxify the body and improve cardiovascular health.

What is Bikram Yoga?

Bikram Yoga is a specific style of hot yoga that is known for its set sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, which is practised in a room heated to 105°F (40°C) with a humidity of 40%. 

Are there any age or physical limitations for participating in the retreat?

This retreat is for adults. You can attend no matter if you are 18 or 80 years old. We usually have participants between 25-60. But all ages are welcome. 

How many classes per day are offered?

We offer one 90-minute Bikram Yoga class in the morning. We think it’s also important for you to have some time to rest and relax. 

Are meals included in the retreat package?

Yes, all meals are included. We offer two meals a day, Brunch and Dinner. During a yoga retreat, the focus is often on developing a consistent yoga practice, which can be physically and mentally demanding. Eating a light diet with two meals a day can help to reduce the workload on the digestive system, allowing the body to better focus on the practice and promoting a feeling of lightness and clarity. Additionally, eating a light diet can help reduce inflammation and support detoxification, which can further enhance the benefits of the yoga practice.

Are private classes available?

Yes, private classes can be booked with Nadine or Deborah and be practised during your free time in the afternoon.

A private class allows for personalized attention and instruction that is tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Are there any discounts or deals available?

Glad you ask!  If you book a room with another person at the same time, you both get €100 off the regular retreat price. Also, if you are a certified Bikram Yoga Teacher or are short on money but really need a retreat  — reach out to us, and we will find a way!

Yes, you can. To secure the early bird discount and save your spot, you can pay 50% until the 14th of February. The other 50% you can pay either in one or two instalments until the 31st of March.

In the event that a cancellation is necessary due to illness or tragedy in the family, you will receive a full refund less 500 € prior to February 28th, 2023.

A cancellation made prior to March 31st, 2023 will result in a loss of 50% of the retreat price.
