Yoga & Surf Holiday, September 2014

When: Saturday 6th to Sunday 14th September 2014
Where: Helios Apartments, Ericeira, Portugal

This is exciting! A yoga practice supports rest and rejuvenation. The sun and sea do the same. Imagine how good you will feel on and after a holiday that combines them all! Come, play, practice and eat well while you relax and holiday.

The holiday is suitable for both beginners and those with experience of yoga and surfing. The programme is flexible and the surfing is optional (but so much fun it’s worth giving a go even if you’re not convinced!) so you can make the most of what is on offer while having the opportunity to explore or steal away by yourself. See for ideas and local beauty spots.


Accommodation is in the idyllic yet down-to-earth Helios Apartments which are situated in a beautiful terraced garden just a two minute flip-flop from the Foz Do Lizandro surf beach. We will have the place to ourselves for the week and the blue and red bungalows and the white house at Helios will each be home to four people. For more details see

Tasty, healthy, wholesome breakfasts and lunches will be provided, combining Ayurvedic nourishment with local delicacies. This leaves you with the choice of eating out or making use of the self-catering facilities in the evening.

Free time

Free time offers many choices at Helios and beyond. Private sun terraces, hammocks, music, television and a swimming pool all make Helios a great place to relax. Foz Do Lizandro Beach has a number of surf cafes and plenty of sun, sand and sea to enjoy. Just watching people surf can be fun! Ericeira is a half hour walk or five minute drive and with cobbled streets, interesting shops and authentic cafes and restaurants there is plenty to explore. There are beauty and cultural sites aplenty in the region that you could explore yourself or join the group excursions.
