YOGA & SURF
Levels: Initiate and Intermediate
Yoga and Surf are two practices that complement each other, they teach us how to flow, to find balance, to be present, to enjoy the moment and give us a new perspective on the world and life. Besides this, Yoga prepares the body for the practice of Surf.
To combine Yoga and Surf will not only improve the strength of the upper body limbs, motor coordination, balance, breathing but also allow us to be more conscious about ourselves and others.
It makes us more flexible in our bodies and in our daily lives, it improves the quality of our thoughts and emotions.
The practice of Yoga and Surf is indicated both for men and women of all ages, no matter the physical condition.
This retreat offers a perfect combination between Yoga, Surf, Ayurvedic Medicine and Healthy Kitchen because we believe in the power of synergy, in complementarity and that change is bigger and more effective when combined with other practices.
Our retreats are carefully designed to small groups, creating a safe and intimate environment, so you can practice listening within yourself, take to your life a new way of being, to be and to feel and to enjoy all the experience without external distractions.
Each experiment is unique and unreplaceable, here you can enjoy the different practices for your pleasure and benefit. You’ll find a thoughtful team, a space full of love and a place surrounded by nature in its purer state, so you can surrender yourself to the practice and achieve the highest balance.
What our Guest say Read More +
The practice of Yoga, with its postures (asanas), and its techniques (pranayamas), the different meditations and relaxation techniques (Nidra) seeks to bring an improvement on the quality of life and a harmony between the different bodies (physical, emotional and mental). It helps us to ground ourselves, relax, detox and expand, not only the body. It expands our consciousness and changes the way we see the world.
“The perfection of Yoga is to be exactly as we Are.”
Yoga at Quintinha do Mar offers a diversified range of possibilities, in the practice, that may be achieved by anyone, independent of their physical condition.
Day after day, and as we develop the connection with Yoga, the practices adapt, either to the moment as to the needs of the group, and it can be quiet or more dynamic.
The purpose is always self-knowledge, presence and full connection with your Being and with everything that surrounds you.
When practiced with consciousness Surf is a great tool for self-knowledge, in that its benefits transcend our physical body.
There is something magical when we are at sea, we quickly enter a meditation state, when all that matters is being present. We are filled with a deep connection sensation to the whole, recognizing what exists within and outside ourselves.
Surf practice is a metaphor to life, teaches us to develop patience, to observe and respect nature, it helps us to maintain a positive and relaxed attitude. It strengthens our resilience and prepares us for the most challenging situations of our daily life.
The more connected we are with our Self, the more we’ll flow with the waves or with any other situation in our lives.
Have you never practiced Surf? Don’t worry. Our practices adapt not only to your experience as to the dynamic of the group.
