Surf & Inner Strength Surfing

After a special Surf & Inner Strength week in Lanzarote, this year we also organize a week in Portugal. In addition to surfing, the focus is on finding your inner strength, in which we work together with coach Niels. The morning training is meant to charge you all the way and to make deeper contact with yourself and from there with others. The goal of the training is to let you experience that you are much more than just your thoughts. There is no self, the only thing you are is a space and assumptions appear in that we are none of them. These can be breathing exercises in the villa, a workout on the beach or for example a silence walk or a lookout session. There is a deeper layer and a space in everyone. It opens when you relax and when you give up all your ideas who you think you are. You will then come into contact with a state of being that is far greater than anything you thought you were. Often we hold on to unconscious tension or patterns that we believe in. By breathing, meditating and softening in your body, patterns rise and by being silenced they are seen. By being and not running away, but experiencing this moment as it is, they dissolve. All that remains is life, love and peace.

Surf & Yoga Surfing

It's been 3 years since we first organize surf & yoga weeks in Portugal. Yoga helps to make your body and mind become more powerful and flexible. The exercises are an ideal preparation for surfing and help you move more smoothly in the water. Every day we start with a wonderful yoga class and sometimes the day ends with a relaxed cooldown lesson (depending on the wave forecasts for example). Depending on the level and wishes of the group, both quiet and active lessons will be offered. These can vary from a relaxed (yin yoga) lesson to a more active challenging vinyasa flow. The lessons are given in different places, for example on the beach, inside the villa or at the swimming pool. After this surf & yoga week you will feel reborn, full of energy and physical strength!

About the location

Accommodation

Stay in our spacious, well-appointed, modern villa in Lagos. Sleep with a maximum of 2 others in your room. Enjoy nights by the fire or cool down in the swimming pool.

Location

Lagos is the perfect blend of the best Portuguese beaches, outstanding history, and excellent modern services. Walk around the beautiful historical center surrounded by ancient Moorish walls. Be amazed at the history of Lagos stretching back to the Carthaginians and Romans. Razzle-dazzle your evenings with a vibrant night-life, cafe, and restaurant culture. Enjoy remarkably consistent swells - the Algarve region has both south and west-facing coastline and is perfectly located to pick up Atlantic swells from most directions. To reach Lagos fly to Faro the major airport for Algarve, from here it is approximately a one-and-a-half hour drive to Lagos.

Food

Relish fabulous food, cooked by your group Chef - with mostly vegetarian options, but we will cook anything you request. Try out the local cafes and restaurants whenever you like. Seafood lovers rejoice - as the main ingredients in the Algarve are fish and seafood usually served with salad and vegetables. If you need a post-surf energy boost then try a bifana- Garlic roasted pork in a fresh bread-roll. Wash it all down with a glass or two or three of medronho – a strong traditional fruit brandy. Feel the flash of fire as it passes your taste-buds and heats your sinuses. The Algarve also has some of the best, freshest and cheapest seafood in Europe – great with a strong espresso.
