Advanced Yoga retreat in the Algarve in August

August 25, 2024 - August 31, 2024

This retreat is for those attending my level 3 zoom classes or those practising similar sequences, ie comfortable with dynamic flows and eager to challenge themselves with some balancing poses, inversions etc. We recommend you attend at least three or four level 3 classes beforehand to ensure the level is right for you.
Check-in time on arrival day (Sunday): after 2pm (you can join the 5pm class)
Check-out time on last day (Saturday): 10 am

The timetable is not set in stone and we can adapt to your needs and preference, but this is an indication of what a day would look like.

14:00 – 17:00: This is the time for you to relax, get to know each other or explore the Algarve. We can organise trips to areas you’d like to explore (optional add-on) or get a massage therapist to come (minimum 2 clients, add-on).
