Yoga, Spirituality and Surf, Portugal

Experience a week of transformation for your body and soul through spiritual connection, yoga, life coaching, and surfing, all under the alchemical guidance of Ameriga, ERYT500, MA Yoga Studies, Master NLP, Life Coach, and Astrologer.

July 7-14, 2024, Santa Cruz, Portugal

This is not "just" a yoga retreat.

Ditch your daily routine and immerse yourself in a week of profound rediscovery, body transformation and authentic connection with our community.

In this retreat, Ameriga, a well-rounded and truly atypical teacher, will guide you in a unique and revolutionary experience.

Anyone who has been to her retreats can confirm their transformative power. Leave the usual yoga retreats behind, and prepare to experience the magic of a guide who will radically change your approach to life.

PS: The retreat will be conducted in Italian  

Imagine this week like this:

Imagine a journey outside and inside yourself, with two engaging appointments a day that will open the doors to your transformation.
In the morning you will join the group for a 2-hour Vinyasa flow class: creative, slow, deep and intense sequences, enhanced by Indian philosophy, psychology, engaging music and kirtan. Her lessons are real journeys of interoception and introspection.

Ameriga has a reputation for taking her students’ practice to the next level, so get ready to explore new positions, safely and functionally. If you are an experienced practitioner you will fully appreciate the new challenges, whereas if you are new to the world of  yoga you will always feel supported in trying new postures.

The afternoon in Santa Cruz opens up to the magical local scenery. Explore the charming streets of the centre, enjoy a walk along the Atlantic coast and the sea breeze. Visit the Santa Cruz Museum to learn about local history or discover the architectural beauty of the Church of Santa Helena.

For the sporty ones, the afternoon will be dedicated to surfing, on the magnificent wild beaches of this area of ​​Portugal.

Upon your return to the Shala, Ameriga will lead you on a different experience every afternoon: you will be able to unwind and relax through Yin Yoga, learn to practice new postures through our Asana Workshops, and experience a profound connection and transformation thanks to the Breathwork sessions.

The transformative core of this retreat manifests itself in the group dynamics: you will meet amazing people and share stories in a safe space. 


⚡️ Waking up the Yogic Way: Vinyasa Flow (8.30-10.30):

⚡️ Wake up energized with a 2-hour Vinyasa flow class, dedicated to a peak pose that will become the focal point of your day. Kick-start your daily spiritual journey guided by a reflective theme, immersed in gorgeous music and kirtan.

⚡️ Breakfast Gathering:

⚡️ After the morning practice, join the other participants for a delicious homemade breakfast, which is a special moment of connection amongst the partecipants.

⚡️ Free Time and Discovery:

⚡️ The day continues with a period of free time, where the retreat community usually remains together. Try the 5 surf lessons included in the package or let your spirit wander by the beach, exploring the surrounding beauty, or indulging in a wellness ritual with a rejuvenating massage.

⚡️ Evening Gathering (at 6:00):

⚡️ At 6:00, we gather for different activities every day. This could either be a relaxing 90-minute Bhakti Prema Yin Yoga class, suitable for all levels. Alternatively, you will immerse yourself in a Breathwork session or participate in an engaging workshop to learn new yoga postures.

⚡️ Vegetarian Dinner (at 8:00):

⚡️ Every evening at eight, a vegetarian dinner will be offered, a moment of nourishment for the body and soul. 

⚡️ Plant Ceremony (after dinner)

⚡️ Occasionally, we will meet again after dinner for a ceremony involving some tea, meditation or sharing time.
