A TYPICAL DAY
Essentially the perfect combination of yoga and surf, we welcome you to indulge in a carefully curated yoga program paired with excellent surf lessons, all set in a uniquely pleasurable environment at Quinta Lizandro in Ericeira, Portugal.
We start the day with meditation and a yoga session before a healthy breakfast buffet. The surf lessons are held in optimal conditions on the day, with your safety and learning conditions as the priority. The instructors will start with a briefing and warm-up before we go surfing in the ocean. To finish each lesson, we gather on the beach for feedback and a session summary. In the afternoon you’ll be invited to other activities with the group such as wine tasting at the nearby vineyard, sustainability efforts like a beach clean-up with the crew or join the sightseeing trip to Lisbon. Naturally, there are other options closer to home like more yoga, another surf session, chill in the sun at the camp, relax on the beach or explore Ericeira town.
SURF COURSE LEVELS
On a platform of physio & psychology oriented yoga training coupled with first-rate surf lessons; we are excited to present this rejuvenation experience for your physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
