    Your Algarve Yoga Holiday

    Travel with us on a unique yoga holiday designed to help you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life while discovering the stunning natural surroundings of Portugal’s southern coast. The Algarve, with its superb year-round climate, fantastic beaches, and dramatic landscapes, provides the perfect backdrop for a relaxing and rejuvenating yoga retreat.

    Led by a highly qualified instructor from MOONS Yoga Loft (or Moons herself!), our daily Vinyasa and Hatha yoga sessions are designed for all levels, yoga novice to expert, and are thoughtfully themed to keep your practice fresh and engaging. Emphasizing slow, mindful movements with stronger holds (but optional always), each session provides variations to intensify or soften the poses, ensuring a personalised and enriching experience.

    Beyond the mat, your afternoons are free to explore the natural wonders of the Algarve. Swim in the crystal-clear sea, cycle through picturesque landscapes, take a SUP (Stand-Up Paddleboarding) lesson, or simply relax by the pool and listen to the gentle sound of waves.

    Join us in the Algarve, energise your body, clear your mind, and embrace the beauty of your surroundings on this transformative yoga holiday in Portugal.

    Please ensure you bring your own yoga mat for this holiday.

    Let’s begin each day of our yoga holiday with a rejuvenating yoga session led by our expert instructor from MOONSyoga Loft designed to feel revitalised and prepared to fully embrace the day. Weather dependent, these classes will take place on the roof top area overlooking the Atlantic and the nearby nature reserve. Our highly qualified teachers will guide us through a practice that awakens our body and mind, ensuring energy flows seamlessly from head to toe.

    The morning classes start with gentle movements, gradually building into a nourishing Hatha Vinyasa flow that incorporates mindful breathing and meditation. We'll engage in a series of slow fluid sequences designed to enhance flexibility, balance, and strength. As the session progresses, we'll experience a heat-building flow that prepares you for the day ahead. Each class concludes with a grounding stretch and a soothing savasana, leaving us deeply relaxed and ready for a nourishing breakfast.

    Each class will be tailored to the ability of the group and different options will be given for different levels, ensuring an enjoyable experience for all. Overall the message for every session is - take what you need and leave what you don’t. It’s your practice!

    You will be free every afternoon to explore the town of Tavira and its surroundings areas. From exploring the nearby Rio Formosa Natural Park, the beach, shopping and the many cafes and restaurants, you are sure to be kept entertained in this charming rustic resort.

    If Moons herself is leading these holidays discuss with her about booking in some time for an optional Power Hour Life Audit Coaching sessions.Please note these sessions are at an additional cost and you can liaise with her to book in [email protected].

    Evening yoga session

    Time: EveningEvening

    Each evening let’s embark on a journey of exploration and growth with our expert instructor from MOONSyoga Loft. Each session offers a focused restorative/integrative approach, resembling a specialised workshop rather than a traditional yoga class. Delve into targeted areas of the body as we move through carefully curated postures designed to deepen our understanding and connection with our practice. Deep physical release, soothing spiritual wellbeing and accessible meditations each evening.

    But whether working with the physical body or meditating/brain training with more of a philosophical approach - each workshop/session holds its own transformative potential. With a wide range of themes introduced across the evenings these classes not only enrich our practice on the mat but also provide valuable insights to carry into our daily life and to our yoga practice at home. Following the evening session, indulge in a serene cool-down sequence/meditation, allowing our body to unwind and prepare for rest, leaving us refreshed and ready to embrace the tranquillity of the evening.

    At leisure & return home
