The Algarve Yoga Holiday
Experience the awe-inspiring beauty & tranquillity of Portugal’s Algarve coast with us. Check out our yoga holidays to Portugal which include return flights, guided ground transfers, accommodation and yoga sessions led by a highly qualified instructor from MOONS Yoga to lead us in our practice.
Portugal’s southern coastal region, the Algarve, is known for its beautiful weather, dramatic cliffs, breathtaking beaches and picturesque seaside villages. This spectacular area also offers modern amenities and resorts for travellers while still maintaining traditional Portuguese culture throughout the tiny whitewashed towns and fishing villages along the coast. It’s no wonder that this area is one of the most popular for tourists to visit! On our holidays including the Algarve, we’ll enjoy plenty of time to explore the highlights of this incredible region.
The tiny fishing village of Sagres is located in the far southwest corner of Portugal, just a few kilometres from Cape St. Vincent, the most south-westerly point of continental Europe. The town is most famous for the Fortaleza de Sagres, a fort on the tip of Sagres Point, which may have been the home of the legendary ‘School of Sagres’. The charming town of Sagres and its surrounding beaches are a perfect destination for those looking to surf, hike, or just relax and soak up the sun.
The Fortaleza de Sagres is a coastal fort located on the Sagres peninsula, just outside the town of Sagres. The fort has only a single fortified wall and is surrounded on its other three sides by dramatic cliffs and crashing surf. Originally used to protect the town from North African raiders, the Fortaleza de Sagres is most well-known for its connection to Henry the Navigator. Legend has it that Henry the Navigator set up the ‘School of Sagres’ within the fort to teach techniques and methods of seafaring during the Portuguese Age of Discoveries.
Our TD active Yoga Holidays are the perfect escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. Enjoy a relaxing break in the Algarve, where we'll spend our mornings and evenings enjoying a range of yoga classes led by a qualified yoga teacher from MOONSyoga Loft, while you will have your afternoons free to explore the local area.
All of our Yoga Holidays are in partnership with MOONSyoga Loft , and one of their highly qualified teachers will lead our practices throughout the holiday. Each session provided will be open level and our expert yoga instructor will tailor the practice to the group’s fitness level. We’ll also have time after our sessions to ask questions or request adjustments. So whether you’re an expert yogi or just starting out on your practice, our expert teachers will provide variations to intensify or soften each of the poses.
Crashing waves, bright sunshine, warm sea breezes, picturesque landscapes and friendly locals are all things that come to mind when imaging a holiday to Portugal’s southern coast. But on our holidays to the Algarve, we offer a unique twist on your traditional beach holiday. We’ll spend 3 days relaxing and reviving on a yoga retreat set in the stunning coastal town of Sagres. In collaboration with MOONSyoga Loft, we’ll enjoy twice daily yoga sessions taught by an expert instructor and have plenty of free time to immerse ourselves in the culture and beauty of this stunning area. Yoga sessions are suitable for all levels and focus on slow, mindful movement. During our time at leisure, we’ll have the option to hike the rugged coastline; take a surf lesson, discover traditional shops, cafes, and restaurants in the fishing village of Sagres, or just relax on stunning cliff-framed beaches.
