Yoga is a core part of our program, and we cater to beginners as well as intermediate level practitioners. Studies have proven yoga to be one of the best ways to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and relieve symptoms such as insomnia, depression and anxiety, and boost the immune system and mood. Yoga also helps to improve overall fitness, strength, and flexibility.
There are 2 yoga experiences every day during your stay.
If you are new to yoga this is a great opportunity to begin your journey! The purpose of yoga is to help you find balance, strength, flexibility and peace within. Yoga allows you to learn and use the body in specific ways, which in turn helps the mind relax and calm down. The yoga classes are held outdoors or in the yoga room.
Each day you can choose to have a whole day Mindful Walking, a fun SUP day or diving, daily excursions around the island, guided Levadas tours, mountain bike tour, or city walk and much more.
