Come and join us on a relaxing Algarve yoga holiday or short break and discover the tranquil countryside at the heart of Portugal's sunniest region. Our aim is to send you home refreshed and inspired after a few days of fun and challenging yoga, good company and great food in a beautiful setting. Whether you are new to yoga or are experienced and want to improve your technique there are week-long holidays and short breaks to suit everyone.
Where You'll Stay
On our yoga breaks and holidays you’ll stay in a beautifully restored quinta in the hillside above Almancil or a tranquil retreat near Loulé with their own, fully equipped yoga studios. Between classes you can treat yourself to a massage, relax in the gardens, take a dip in the pool or explore the surrounding area. There are lots of fun activities near by including walking, horse riding, surfing, diving, golf or even paragliding for the more adventurous!
All the Algarve yoga breaks are led by Rachel an experienced and dedicated Iyengar yoga teacher. Iyengar Yoga fouses on how postural alignment and body awareness can bring about health and well-being. The courses are designed to give participants a broad experience of yoga, to learn more, improve their practice and to have fun. Our guests often arrive tired and stressed, looking forward to a well-earned break and after their yoga course, return home refreshed and renewed.
Complete beginners are welcome but there’ll also be plenty to challenge those with more experience including teachers or trainees. We’re happy for non-participating partners to come along and enjoy the lovely natural surroundings and other activities on offer.

About the area
The Algarve yoga venue is just 20 minutes from Faro Airport and only 15 minutes from the historic town of Loule and the region's famous beaches. This means you’re ideally placed for exploring the Algarve without being in ‘the middle of the confusion’ as the Portuguese say.
The local area is well-known for its warmth and hospitality and you’ll find yourself meeting friendly people from all walks of life. If you are travelling on your own or with a friend you will find that there is plenty of space to have quiet moments to yourself and plenty of good company for when you need it.
