Morning yoga session
Each morning we will have a yoga class with a highly qualified teacher from MOONSyoga Loft. We will starting each day by opening up the body/mind and getting energy flowing from tip to toe; the morning classes will build to a relatively strong flow class, incorporating breath work and mindfulness throughout. Starting softly and working up into a series of slow fluid sequences, each morning class will include lengthening, balancing and strength building poses; a heat building Hatha Vinyasa class. Eventually coming back down onto the ground for a deep releasing stretch and well earned pre-breakfast savasana.
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.
Evening yoga session
Each evening we will have a yoga class with a highly qualified teacher from MOONSyoga Loft. The evening sessions will begin with a warm up, like in the morning, but will focus on a particular section of the body, moving more deeply into it through specifically targeted postures. It will be more like a workshop than a ‘general’ yoga class. For example, the first one might focus on hips and hip openers working towards a climax posture such as pigeon/reclined virasana etc. Another evening workshop could be based on shoulders and arms, working up towards arm balances etc. One could be specific to twists, another to inversions etc. An additional benefit of these evening sessions is the education we take away with us off the mat, going home to our local studio with a better awareness and knowledge of the poses/alignment/benefits. The class will be followed by a cool down sequence with time to release, relax and rest the body leaving us ready to float away and enjoy the remainder of our evening.
At leisure & return home
We will have a full day at leisure to soak up the natural surroundings of Tavira before an evening transfer to Faro Airport for our return flight home, We hope you have enjoyed experiencing the joy of mindful movement and meditation with us on our Algarve Yoga Holiday.
