THE ALGARVE

The Algarve in Portugal is a stunning destination that boasts breathtaking natural scenery, vibrant culture, and a laid-back atmosphere. One of its most famous features is the stunning cliffs in Lagos, which attract visitors from all over the world.

The cliffs of Lagos are characterized by their dramatic rock formations, towering above the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The jagged coastline is dotted with secluded beaches and hidden coves, making it a perfect place to find peace and quiet.

Optionally, you can arrive 1-2 days prior to the retreat, and I will spend a day visiting Lagos, the cliffs, and the beach with you. 

The serene atmosphere and stunning natural scenery create a sense of calm and tranquillity that is perfect for yoga practice by the beach. 

Afterward, you will have time to sunbathe and swim and shop for souvenirs in the old town of Lagos. I will take you to one of the best Portuguese restaurants in the evening

IMPRESSIONS FROM OUR LAST RETREAT @MOODZ
MAY & SEPTEMBER 2023

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 Beginners Yoga style and suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners because 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 practiced 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 and practice 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! Yes, we have an early bird discount available until the 14th of June for 1,299€ instead of 1,399€. Also 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, we will find a way. 

Can I pay in instalments

Yes, you can. To secure the early bird discount and save your spot, you can pay 50% until the 30th of June. The other 50% you can pay either in one or two instalments until the 31st of August. 

What is the cancellation policy?

If a cancellation is necessary due to illness or tragedy in the family, you will receive a full refund of less than 500 € three months before the retreat. If there is another reason why you can´t attend, we can keep your deposit for another retreat in the future. 

A cancellation made before two months before will result in a loss of 50% of the retreat price.

Any cancellation made between one month before and the start date will result in a loss of 100% of the retreat price.

We reserve the right to cancel the trip if unforeseen conditions interfere with safety and security (if we do, you will be refunded less minimal administration fees). Trip cancellation insurance is always recommended whenever making travel plans.

Which airport do I have to fly to?

The closest airport is Faro (Portugal).  You can also fly to Lisbon or Sevilla (Spain).

I am a beach lover, will I see the beautiful beaches of Portugal?

Yes, absolutely. I am a beach lover too. The venue is 30 minute drive from the nearest beach and you have different options. You can rent a car and visit the beaches in your free time. You can join the surf shuttle every day which will bring you to the most beautiful beaches of the Algarve. You join us for our day trip to Lagos where you will visit the famos beach with the rocks in the water.
