Yin · Yang · Yoga Nidra retreat in Portugal

9-14th June 2018

Join me in June 2018 for 6 soul nourishing days in beautiful surroundings by the beach just outside Lisbon. The retreat will be a perfect mix of heart warming yang yoga to energise and revitalise your whole being + mellow, meditative yin yoga to let go of stress and tension + deep relaxation with yoga nidra, letting you take a dive deep in to your soul. Oh and yes, you can also dive into the Atlantic ocean which will be just on your doorstep.

This retreat will be taught English with Danish translation available.

Praia Grande, stranden der ligger 7 min. gang fra vores hus

We’ll be staying at a villa called Starpine Lodge, just 30 min. drive from Lisbon. Secluded from the main road and with a private garden, it is calm and quiet, except from the sounds of the waves from the Atlantic Ocean. Praia Grande, one of the most beautiful beaches on the West coast of Portugal is only a 5 min. walk away. From the garden and some of the rooms you will have a view of the beach.


Our daily yoga practise will take place in the yoga room in the garden or on the beach, if weather allows. In your spare time you can relax by the beach or by the pool in our garden, or you can explore the surrounding area, visiting other beaches or hiking up to the top of the cliffs overlooking the sea.


The magical town of Sintra is only a short drive away. Sintra is a picturesque town set among pine-covered hills and studded with pastel-colored villas and palaces. If you wish to explore Sintra we can help organise a trip with a driver from our retreat center.

Kl. 8-9.30 Yang yoga
Kl. 9.30 Breakfast
Kl. 16-18: Yin yoga + Yoga nidra

After our morning yoga session we will have a buffet style breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, juices, cereals, eggs, bread, also gluten free options available. Here you will also make your own sandwich that you can bring with you for lunch.

Dinner is not included as there are many restaurants on Praia Grande, it would be a shame not to watch the sunset over the beach every night while having dinner:) A favourite of my retreat guests has always been Bar do Fundo, a restaurant that serves amazing food and is located literally on the beach.
