Type of Event
- General Event
During 14th December - 4th January we open our guesthouse for a Winter Yoga & Surf Holiday. You can book with and without surfing - please check in with us personally!
This holiday season, Omassim Guesthouse happily welcome you to bring 2016 to a positive close and making a fresh and healthy beginning for 2017. Whether you are seeking a wellness break or a more active vacation - additional wellness treatments and activities like surfing lessons can be arranged. In Ericeira you can rent a mountain bike or there are beautiful hiking trails along the coastal line.
The yoga classes are suitable for all yoga levels, so you will be just fine. The morning Vinyasa Flow classes are very active, while the evening classes will be slow, soft, relaxing, restorative or Yin yoga. This is the best gift you can offer to yourself during the coming wintertime and it could also be a genuine effort to your New Year's resolution to live a life full of health, peace, happiness and joy.
Yoga is for everyone, you don't need to be an aficionado, nor to be in top form. Each class includes the practice of pranayama (breathing exercises), asanas (seat, posture) and savasana (relaxation in the end of the class). The morning classes will be the Vinyasa Flow, a gentle practice of Hatha yoga which focuses on the synchronization of the breath (prana) with the postures (asanas). It is a dance of the asanas always in connection with breathing to calm the mind. Let the breath be your guide to liberate your mind and increase your inner peace, harmony, love and joy. Practicing yoga will help to harmonize the nervous system, increase the sense of balance of body and mind and strengthens the lymphatic system.
Traditionally the evening classes are more soft, slow, restorative or yin yogish to integrate the day and prepare for a great rest for the night. Let yourself emerge into the flow of your yoga practice. Enjoy the breathing, and relax deeply your body, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and also your mind. Let yourself lead your own breath through a class full of regeneration, recreation and calm.
