Beach Yoga at Praia de Monte Clérigo

On Friday evening the four of us met with Eve, our yoga teacher and the owner of Prana Casa for a last session of yoga. In the beginning we did a "normal" practice, then we did partner excercises and tried out some acro yoga. Then Eve took over my camera and made us pose in different assanas. We had a lot of fun and it was the most beautiful feeling to be on the beach with really nice people and feel your body do all the things we had been practising all week.

I am so very glad that I went on this yoga adventure in Portugal. It was my first time in a yoga retreat and also the first time I did more than one lesson with the same teacher. I loved all the different practices on the deck, the chanting in the morning, the medidation walk but this beach yoga session was probably the one I will never forget. 

During the last few days back in Zürich I tried really hard to stay connected to my holidays. Each morning I did a bit of yoga, I made myself some oatmeal and I've already been to my first hatha yoga lesson in Zürich and payed for 11 more. I'll give my best to continue...



  1. I just finished reading every single post about your yoga retreat and what can I say... Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing!!! Really, it was like a breath of fresh air! I miss the coast and the sound of waves sooo much... You also inspired me to get to my yoga routine that I've pretty much abandoned the last 6 months! Wish you to come back to this magical place again!!!

    1. Thank you so much for taking all the time to read through my posts. I miss Portugal a lot, especially now that the foggy time has started here. I try to keep up with my yoga and so far I managed ok, but it will be good to encourage each other ;-)
