“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet” – Bob Dylan.

Join us in an autumn Sama yoga retreat in the amazing coast of Portugal with the experienced teacher Sky Akasha Tobias.

You will learn and enjoy superb and unique yoga classes in a yoga shala with unique ocean views. What makes Sky’s classes different is the continuity from the very first moment, through the opening mantras, flowing thru the poses and precious pausesfinal relaxation to meditation and Pranayama. It’s a smooth unbroken flow, which truly allows one to “drop in” and “be with” oneself and experience deeply what’s taking place inside.

The deeper states are accessed when we can stay with current expressions and open to what is happening now.  The Yoga Classes are supported by guided meditation and short but important talks.

The Physical form moves like Tai Chi flowing into classical Hatha Yoga poses, staying for some breaths, opening to the magic of the Asana and then staying still, resting, integrating and feeling what’s moving inside.

Ayurveda, Mantras and Vedic wisdom are part of the classes and study. We will learn a lot! We will come away with tools to take care of ourselves and enhance our current Yoga practice and lifestyle.

All Levels are welcome, even beginners will find the movements, with some variations, accessible, while more experienced students will definitely appreciate the depth and uniqueness of the Sama Yoga style.

The daily program will be enriched with trips to the most special natural places and trekkings out of the turistic tracks, organized with care and love, to allow us integrate the practice in nature and discover the beauty of this beautiful region of Portugal without having to plan, prepare, think how to reach each spot.

We will also have time for resting in a unique and relaxing property in nature and be delighted with vegetarian and vegan, organic cuisine, prepared with love by an experienced chef in healthy eating.





We will stay in an unique villa reseved exclusively for our group. A Portuguese country house with a privileged location, overlooking the sea and the valley.

The villa is located on an 11-hectare estate, among pine trees and fruit trees, surrounded by silence, tranquility and a starry sky. The farm has an organic garden, with production of lemons, figs, oranges, peaches, persimmons, quinces, etc.

Walking along a beautiful 20-minute walk, you reach the wide natural beach of San Lorenzo, perfect for walks and for a quiet swimn.

The villa has single, double rooms and apartments, all with private bathroom and terrace.

We will practice in a newly built 120 m2 rooftop yoga shala,  fully equipped,  overlooking the ocean, which we allow us to practice with amazing views.

The vegetarian, healthy and delicious meals, will be created by two amazing portuguese rivate chefs, specially hired for our retreat.

A unique paradise to integrate your practice, rest, eat consciously and allow yourself to be healed by nature and relaxation.
