A week full of like-minded people: Surf-Yogis. Those who have fallen in love with the ocean, have a passion for surfing and find their roots through their Yoga practice. But don´t worry. You don’t have to be a pro Surfer or Super-Yogi. We meet here to have fun and to learn. To share our love, and simply have a great time together.
We will start each day with a Morning Tea and Yoga practice, that will also include Pranayama (breathing techniques). Three days of the week we will be picked up to go surf together. You will either learn from very scratch, catch your first green waves or improve your surfing with the help of our experienced surf-teachers. After the surfs’, we will reflect on our thoughts, and I will guide you through a Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra Class. Then, have Dinner together at the venue. On the days without surf, you have some time to explore the area, the Portuguese villages, or simply be with yourself and the others. Dinner out will be optional together, in Sagres, Vila do Bispo and Lagos. Please note, that the dinner in the Restaurants are not included in the price.
Please note, that the schedule is not set in stone, and will probably change slightly, as we will organize the surf around the conditions (wave, wind etc.)
It was my first time joining a Yoga Retreat. On top of that on the gorgeous island of Agistri, Greece. Kathi has held the courses very instructive and well explained. She has also always looked in between whether you do the figures correctly. I liked that so much and I took a lot with me. Since then I have been doing yoga regularly. Now I’m waiting until she comes to Salzburg and also holds a course there.
I participated in the weekend yoga retreat of the dear Kathi in spring. It was a super lovingly organized weekend with varied yoga sessions in a beautiful setting. Perfect to escape from everyday life for a weekend and to find yourself again a little more. I will for sure join another of her retreats!
A short and intense weekend that felt like a peaceful vacation, letting go of all worries and limits, exactly as Kathi described “Let go of the limits you set yourself”. I am super happy that I got to know Yin Yoga which helps me nowadays slowing down. Thanks Kathi for this great experience!
In September 2020 I joined the yoga retreat led by Katharina Maloun in Upper Austria. We were given insight into a mix of Yin and Yang Yoga and ended each day with a Yoga Nidra session. In addition, topics such as journaling, the meaning of the moon, mindfulness and meditation exercises were on the daily schedule. Nevertheless, there was also enough free time for self-study, exchange with other participants or a short walk in nature. Thanks to Kathi’s positive and authentic charisma, I had the feeling of being at home within a family atmosphere. Overall, the yoga retreat gave me an incredible amount of energy and at the same time gave me peace and grounding. I would participate again at any time!
Organizing a Yoga & Surf Retreat here in Portugal has been a dream of mine for a quite a long time, and I am very grateful to see everything finally coming together. Teaching in Surfcamps and being a Surfer myself, I know exactly what the body and the mind need to be prepared and after a session in the ocean. I´d highly recommend practicing with my Yoga for Surfers – get ready for Surf Holidays Course, before arriving. As a participant of this retreat, you will get a unique discount of the course – so don´t forget to ask for it with your booking!
