Retreat: Moving into Balance

Surfing, dancing, yoga, and mindfulness ensure inner balance with this retreat. Are you ready to clear your mind and connect with your body? Then this retreat in Portugal is truly meant for you. Playfully, themes such as setting boundaries, self-acceptance, and showing yourself are addressed. Sometimes we challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and overcome fears, all in a pleasant, cozy place.

Surfing: the best way to meditate?


The sea challenges you to move with the flow. When you keep an eye on the waves, it’s difficult for your thoughts to wander elsewhere. You can’t help but be in the present moment. We receive surfing lessons from Brian, who provides personalized advice. He understands what people need and helps you find your balance on the board and in the sea.

Absolutely zen


This week, you can enjoy meditations with aromatherapy. And on Wednesday evening, we will indulge in a fantastic sound concert by Patrícia Duarte Gonçalves. The vibrations and sounds of the singing bowls and the gong will help us find complete inner peace. Her concerts are truly special to experience.

Vinyasa yoga


Starting the day with a yoga class overlooking the sea! How wonderful is that? The yoga classes are led by Claudia. She ensures that the classes are enjoyable for beginners and more experienced yogis. She helps you reconnect with embracing your own body. Even back in the Netherlands, I still felt grateful for her yoga classes.

Energetisch werk met dans


Dancing combined with energetic work is a golden combination. Mirjam uses this in a playful way to bring you back to yourself. You will let go of what no longer serves you. You learn to present yourself as you are. To radiate your light. Just like with surfing, it becomes easier to go with the flow. The mind relaxes nicely, leading to more balance. We also start one evening with a cacao ceremonie. Cacao opens the heart and the soul.

Digital detox


Another aspect that may take you out of your comfort zone is that we challenge you to a digital detox. If you truly want to undergo a transformation and connect with your inner strength, the smartphone disrupts your transformation process. Everyone can decide for themselves whether to use their smartphone in their own time, but during group activities, we ask you to turn it off. We also turn off the WiFi during the nights.

Within a two-minute walk from the surfhouse, you can reach the beach, the forest, and the town center. For the surf lessons, we use the surfboards and wetsuits from the surfhouse, this is included.
